Back in November Sam Nunberg was on MSNBC and said that President Trump should pardon Roger Stone after he was convicted in crooked Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s courtroom in front of a biased anti-Trump jury. At the time Sam didn’t think Trump would pardon Stone.

Today Trump’s personal assistant Sam Nunberg posted a request at Newsmax to his former employer and friend: Pardon Roger Stone!
Sam Nunberg told The Gateway Pundit that he is cautiously optimistic on the Roger Stone pardon,
“It remains to be seen. I’m cautiously optimistic but the president will face continued pushback from White House advisers, AG Barr and Republican Senators. The reality is that no one deserves a pardon more than Roger who is facing the prospect of a jail sentence that is longer than first time drug offenders and violent criminals. The whole situation is perverse.”
With the Obama appointed Judge Amy Berman Jackson’s impending ruling against Roger Stone’s motion for a retrial, time is of the essence for President Trump to not commute Mr. Stone’s sentence, but rather, to pardon Mr. Stone.
If President Trump allows Mr. Stone to be jailed, the president will appear at best inept or impotent — and at worse both.
Heading into a re-election where his eventual socialist Democrat opponent will impugn the president as a corrupt demagogue who has bungled legislative bi-partisan opportunities on infrastructure and lowering prescription drug prices, allowing Mr. Stone to be jailed for “covering up” as Judge Jackson described at the Stone sentence, would give further credence to his opponent’s narrative that the president was illegimately elected by ill-gotten gains in 2016.
While the president has both spoken and tweeted about the miscarriage of justice which Mr. Stone has faced by the Mueller Office of U.S. Special Counsel, he is surely facing opposition in both the West Wing and at the Justice Department (DOJ).
His own Attorney General William Barr, who bungled prosecution’s sentencing memo submissions, has taken the insubordinate step of publicly rebuking the president’s comments on the Stone prosecution, calling it a “righteous prosecution,” while also threatening to resign if the president continues to tweet about ongoing investigations and prosecutions — or lack thereof.
And while the attorney general tries to hold the president at bay with the so-called “John Durham Criminal Probe,” nothing in the attorney general’s record up to date, whether it is the lack of indictments on Andy McCabe for lying or James Comey for the mishandling of classified information, should give either the president or his supporters any confidence that Barr will be any different than his predecessors in holding the corrupt Obama election meddlers accountable.
