'Unprecedented, historic corruption': Mitt Romney joins Democrats to savage Donald Trump for freeing his friend Roger Stone who answers his door in slippers and customized mask after becoming free man

Mitt Romney blasts Trump after he commutes the prison sentence of Roger Stone

  • On Friday, President Trump commuted the prison sentence of llongtime former Republican strategist, Roger Stone
  • Stone - who has been friends with Trump for 40 years - was convicted of crimes pertaining to Robert Mueller's Russia investigation
  • His 40-month prison sentence was set to commence next week
  • Republican Senator - and frequent Trump critic - Mitt Romney blasted the President for commuting the sentence of his close friend 
  • Democrats including Joe Biden, Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris have all vented their fury
  • But Trump and his supporters say Stone was  a 'victim of the Russia Hoax that the Left and its allies in the media have perpetuated for years'

Mitt Romney has slammed Donald Trump for commuting the sentence of his close friend Roger Stone just days before he was scheduled to enter federal prison. 

The Republican senator - who has been a vocal critic of the President on previous occasions - posted a savage message to Twitter on Saturday morning, which read: 'Unprecedented, historic corruption: an American president commutes the sentence of a person convicted by a jury of lying to shield that very president.' 

Stone, 67, was set to spend 40 months behind bars after a jury found him guilty of obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements in connection with Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election. 


Trump commuted Stone's sentence on Friday afternoon, describing his friend of 40 years as 'a victim of a corrupt and illegal Witch Hunt, one which will go down as the greatest political crime in history.'

Stone was seen outside his Florida home Saturday morning in slippers and a customized mask as he celebrated swerving time in the slammer. 

 Romney - who was the lone Republican to vote to convict Trump during his Senate Impeachment trial in February - joined a chorus of prominent Democrats outraged by the move.

Trump's 2020 Presidential opponent, Joe Biden, released a statement through his spokesperson claiming the Commander-in-chief had 'once again abused his power' and was 'laying waste to the norms and the values that make our country a shining beacon to the rest of the world.'  

Biden further urged voters to boot Trump out of office at the November election, saying: 'He will not be shamed. He will only be stopped when Americans make their voice heard at the ballot box this fall. Enough.' 

Biden's shortlist of Vice Presidential picks were also quick to vent their outrage publicly. 

Senator Elizabeth Warren took to Twitter, stating: 'Donald Trump has abandoned the rule of law and made a mockery of our democracy. He truly is the most corrupt president in history.'

Florida Rep. Val Demings blasted: 'Roger Stone was sentenced to prison for an illegal cover-up of the pro-Trump Russian attack on our 2016 election. For the president to now commute his prison sentence is pure authoritarian corruption.'

Stone was certainly in a celebratory mood as he posed at the doorstep of his home Saturday. The convicted conservative political strategist is still on house arrest, so was unable to go further than his front gate

She added: 'Regardless of our political parties or differences, we all know this is disgraceful. Pray that our republic will endure.' 

Meanwhile, Senator Kamala Harris also chimed in, referencing current outrage over the death of black woman Breonna Taylor in her remakrs. 

'Trump commutes the prison sentence of Roger Stone while the officers that killed Breonna Taylor are still free. The two systems of justice in this country must end,' she railed. 

In a CNN interview with Anderson Cooper, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi described Trump's actions as 'appalling'.  

High-profile Democrats were quick to blast Trump for commuting Stone's sentence

However, Trump supporters have taken an opposing view.

In a statement, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany called Stone a 'victim of the Russia Hoax that the Left and its allies in the media perpetuated for years in an attempt to undermine the Trump Presidency.'

'Not only was Mr. Stone charged by overzealous prosecutors pursing a case that never should have existed, and arrested in an operation that never should have been approved, but there were also serious questions about the jury in the case,' she said in a statement. 

Last month, Trump tweeted that Stone was 'a victim of a corrupt and illegal Witch Hunt, one which will go down as the greatest political crime in history.'

Following news of the commuting of his sentence, Stone stepped outside his Florida home to celebrate with well-wishers.  

'The president has saved my life, and he's given me the opportunity to fight for vindication,' he stated.  

Stone said that entering prison would have been a death sentence in light of the coronavirus pandemic.

'I'm 67 years old. I had very, very severe asthma as a child. If you look at the profile of those who are most at risk, I think I fit that,' he said. 

'This is a horrific, horrific nightmare when you realize that ... this investigation never had any legitimate or lawful beginning,' he said.

'It was a witch hunt. There's no question about that.'

Stone told the New York Post that the president spoke to him by telephone and informed him of his decision to commute his sentence.

'I told him I was grateful,' Stone sa

If it was suppose to be public you would post a copy of that degree you claim you have all over the web, so back up your claim, otherwise shut the f*** up you insecure n*****, its easy to tell when youre talking to those slave niggers, they are quick to tell someone about their education but they are still struggling in that so call hood, if you a 4 year degree and make less than 100k a year you are struggling, unless you're living a project life, just minus the mortgage, and than that car note or insurance, and that is one car if youre living a good life you should have at least 2 or 3 cars now do the math how much is left out that 100k after tax, than comes the utilities, the cell phone bill, and than food, dont play with me i can tell a broke insecure n***** by the way he sounds, as for me there are those on here who have met me at business seminars, and interacting with proof so ask about me n***** i was born in poverty out of North Philly now i own parts of the united states i will not die poor, n***** f*** your education
