MICHAEL FLYNN/PARDONS/ROGER STONE/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/TRUMP PEOPLE: “Roger Stone was treated horribly. Roger Stone was treated very unfairly. Roger Stone was brought into this witch hunt, this whole political witch hunt and the Mueller scam — it’s a scam, because it’s been proven false. And he was treated very unfairly, just like General Flynn was treated unfairly; just like Papadopoulos was treated unfairly. They’ve all been treated unfairly…
I will tell you this: People are extremely happy because, in this country, they want justice. And Roger Stone was not treated properly.
So I’m very happy with what I did. I commuted his sentence.”
