President Trump’s longtime ally and former adviser Roger Stone is set to be sentenced by a federal judge in Washington, D.C., today on seven counts related to special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation, including witness tampering, obstruction and making false statements. Overnight, shortly before 2 a.m., President Trump hinted at a pardon for Stone, pinning a video to his Twitter feed of Fox News host Tucker Carlson blasting federal prosecutors over Stone’s case. This comes as The Washington Post reports the White House is moving to take more direct control over pardons and commutations, with Trump trying to limit the role of the Justice Department in the clemency process.
