SALT LAKE CITY — Sen. Mitt Romney, R-Utah, tweeted his concerns about President Donald Trump’s commutation of the sentence of Roger Stone.

Stone was a former campaign adviser to the president and was due on Tuesday to begin a sentence of three years and four months in prison.

In Romney’s tweet, he referred to the move as “Unprecedented, historic corruption.”

 

 

President Trump says, “Roger Stone was targeted by an illegal Witch Hunt that never should have taken place.”
