CREW Statement on Roger Stone Commutation

Washington- Following the commutation of the prison sentence of convicted felon Roger Stone by President Donald Trump, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) Executive Director Noah Bookbinder, a former federal corruption prosecutor, released the following statement:

“Roger Stone is appropriately a convicted felon and belongs in prison. This is one more example of President Trump at his most corrupt and another attack on our democracy. The president whose administration had peaceful protesters for racial justice pepper sprayed in the name of ‘law and order’ has repeatedly stepped in to make sure his cronies don’t see the consequences of their actions. The message is clear: In Trump’s America, justice doesn’t apply to rich white men who help the president.”
