BREAKING: A Jury Has Issued a Verdict on Roger Stone

UPDATE: President Trump has weighed in, pointing out a double standard for lying under oath. 


***Original post***

A federal jury in Washington D.C. has issued a verdict in the trial of former Trump advisor Roger Stone. He has been found guilty on all seven counts with which he was charged, making him a convicted felon. Those counts include lying to Congress and witness tampering. He pleaded not guilty to the charges earlier this year and said he is only "guilty of only electing the President." 

Stone's trial started last week and jurors deliberated for two days on the charges against him, which were handed down in January by a Grand Jury as part of Robert Mueller's Special Counsel investigation. 

A judge will determine his prison sentence in February. He will be released on his own accord until then, but is still under a gag order from Federal Judge Amy Berman Jackson. 


Stone has the ability to appeal the case and has already asked for a pardon from President Trump. Before the trial started, Stone told supporters and media he will not testify against him. 

"I have made it clear I will not testify against the President. Because I would have to bear false witness against him," he said.
