Federal Prosecutors recommended Monday Trump confidante Roger Stone serve 7-9 years in prison for process crimes during the Mueller witch hunt.
Roger Stone is 67 years old.
Federal prosecutors recommended in a sentencing memo filed Monday that Trump associate Roger Stone serve 87 to 108 months in prison — or 7 to 9 years — for crimes that include obstruction of justice, lying to Congress and witness tampering.
The big picture: Stone, one of several Trump associates to be indicted as a result of the Mueller investigation, was found guilty in November of lying to Congress about his efforts to learn more about when WikiLeaks would publish damaging emails about 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
Stone is set to be sentenced on Feb. 20. Former national security adviser Michael Flynn is the only other Trump associate convicted in the Mueller investigation who continues to await sentencing.
Roger Stone was found guilty on ALL SEVEN COUNTS in a DC court in November.
On Monday night President Trump posted on Twitter “This is a horrible and very unfair situation.”
President Trump: This is a horrible and very unfair situation. The real crimes were on the other side, as nothing happens to them. Cannot allow this miscarriage of justice!

President Trump is right.
In America today Democrats get away with spying on the President and interfering in a national election.
Republicans have their lives ruined for supporting this president.

Brennnan, Comey, Clapper, McCabe, Schiff, and Strzok all lied to Congress and did far more damage.
When will they all be sentenced to nine years? https://t.co/ZUaVdyAy6S

Don Jr. weighed in.
There are no consequences if you’re a leftist and you lie to congress under oath. He, like the double standard that saved him from punishment, is a disgrace. https://t.co/JVPstTlVVY
