Roger Stone Convicted of All Counts

Roger Stone has been convicted of all counts against him.

Prosecutors asked that he be detained pending sentencing, but the Judge continued his bond. Sentencing is set for February.

Mr. Stone, 67, was charged with lying to the House Intelligence Committee, trying to block the testimony of another potential witness and concealing reams of evidence from investigators. Prosecutors claimed he tried to thwart the committee’s work because the truth would have “looked terrible” for both the president and his campaign. He was found guilty of all seven counts he was charged with.

    5 false statements & lying to Congress

    1 witness tampering

    1 obstructing an official proceeding

    Every one almost certain to give pause to a whole cast of characters.  Apart from being the greatest split screen evah that verdict could creep into this in several ways.

    None of them good for Cheeto.
