    Argument A-Unprecedented, historic corruption: an American president commutes the sentence of a person convicted by a jury of lying to shield that very president.

    Argument B-Overzealous prosecutors” who convicted Mr. Stone on “process-based charges” stemming from the “witch hunts” and “Russia hoax” investigation.

    Previously AG Barr said this about Roger Stone. "I think the prosecution was righteous and I think the sentence the judge ultimately gave was fair," Barr said in an interview with ABC News.
    How do we American's see this?

    It's really a convenient distraction from Covid-19. Ultimately not many people care or even know about Roger Stone and outrage over it will blow over.

    Romney has it a called it a historic corruption. This is the second time (that I know of) that Trump as commuted a sentence (Arizona Sheriff) overruling the court of law which found a person guilty.

    When lying to Congress results in prosecutions all the time I might get interested.

    That statement goes back in time ... and applies to both parties back in time.
    If they all truly wanted answers they could have given Assange asylum and a free pass.

    I’d like to see a list of every President that has used this power. To be honest I don’t think I’d like most of what I’d read.

    Romney has it right. He has no reason to exaggerate his judgment of what just happened. Nothing is surprising coming from this character though. Just 115 more days. Alhamdulillah.

    That's a really good point - until we can address all corruption we shouldn't care about any corruption.

    We should care about all of it ...
    The problem is lying to congress has historically been prosecuted mostly politically.

    At this point...anything is fair game in America. Getting Russia to help with elections...funneling covid loans to churches of all places and the presidents business ect.

    Corruption is part of the American way and people need to realize this just like it's a part of every day life in Russia...it's the same here

    If you put it this way, then it means we are fake and I refuse to believe that. America is a lot of things but corruption is not accepted, it is only a matter of time before it gets exposed.

    I could not care less. Plenty of Presidents pardon people. You usually don't hear about it however. When your team loses and you spend 4-years whining then they make a big deal about it. This country excels at hypocrisy and whining. Two things that will not help in a crisis.

    Please provide a Presidential pardon before the guilty party served time.

    You did not answer the question which means your stance is empty.
