BREAKING: Trump strongly implies he’s ready to grant clemency to Roger Stone

In a recent pair of interviews, President Trump strongly implied he was inclined to grant clemency to political ally Roger Stone.

Per CNN, President Donald Trump implied in a pair of interviews Thursday that he was ready to grant clemency to Roger Stone, his friend and ally who was convicted of, among other things, lying to Congress and is set to go to prison this month.

Trump is widely expected to pardon or commute Stone’s sentence, according to at least half a dozen sources close to the President.

Asked by Fox News host Sean Hannity whether he’s considered a pardon or commutation for Stone, Trump said during a phone interview, “I am always thinking.”

“You’ll be watching like everyone else in this case,” he said.

In another interview, with radio host Howie Carr, Trump decried Stone’s treatment at the hands of law enforcement and said he may grant his clemency plea.

“He was framed. He was treated horrible. He was treated so badly,” Trump said.

Told Stone was “praying” for a pardon ahead of the day he is due to report to prison on July 14, Trump said Thursday, those prayers may be worthwhile.

“If you say he’s praying, his prayer may be answered,” Trump said. “Let’s see what happens.”

He said Stone is a “good person” and “a character.”
