#ImpeachTrumpAgain trends after POTUS commutes longtime advisor Roger Stone's prison sentence
How can Donald Trump run for the upcoming presidential elections without his trusted aide Roger Stone by his side? As Stone was getting ready to serve his 40-month sentence in four days, Trump decided to commute his political advisor's prison sentence.
Stone was convicted on the charges of lying to Congress, witness tampering and obstruction as part of former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the involvement of Russia in the 2016 presidential elections. The charges include Stone's role during the elections in procuring information on emails stolen by Russian agents from Hillary Clinton's campaign from WikiLeaks.
The White House has decided to grant executive clemency grant to Stone and called him a victim of the 'Russian hoax'. White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said, "In light of the egregious facts and circumstances surrounding his unfair prosecution, arrest, and trial, the President has determined to commute his sentence. Roger Stone has already suffered greatly. He was treated very unfairly, as were many others in this case. Roger Stone is now a free man!”
The Internet was far from pleased with the news and began demanding the impeachment of Trump for obstructing justice. A user tweeted, "#ImpeachTrumpAgain I hate this crooked system where a criminal who happens to be the President can obstruct justice for one of his criminal accomplices. #VoteBlueToSaveAmerica2020." Another user wrote, "#ImpeachTrumpAgain Let him be the first to be impeached twice. And #ImpeachBarr."
Another user expressed, "So sick of everyone discussing over and over — less TALKING and more ACTION might have stopped @realDonaldTrump and now #IMPEACHtrumpAGAIN and #ImpeachBarr." One concerned user said, "WOW. Watching @Maddow. Really. The House needs to #ImpeachTrumpAgain and the Senate needs to #RemoveTrumpNow... we don't have seven months left."
Another wondered, "Trump commuting Stone in exchange for Stone not rolling on Trump is of course a quid pro quo. Is it politically incorrect in these circumstances to remind people, maybe in a whisper, that the Constitution defines 'Bribery' as a 'high crime', automatically an impeachable offense?" Another said, "I still don't understand why the House doesn't #ImpeachTrumpAgain? I don't see the downside. Thoughts @HouseDemocrats."
