Donald Trump has been itching to bail his old pal and former advisor Roger Stone out of a boatload of big-time trouble since the moment he found out that the guy was in boiling hot water.
Despite the fact that he was clearly found guilty and convicted of seven different felony offenses by a jury of his peers, including but not limited to witness tampering, lying to Congress and obstruction, Donald frankly couldn’t pardon the guy fast enough — ultimately granting him full clemency from a 40-month sentence the very moment he was able to do so.
And honestly, we can all pretty much deduce why Trump was so eager to bail the guy out. However, his former Democratic presidential opponent, First Lady, and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had a rather interesting, deeper theory to the Trump thought process that was behind the rapid Stone pardon and clemency and honestly, nothing has ever made more perfect sense.
During a socially distanced segment with Trevor Noah on The Daily Show, Clinton revealed the one thing she believes is behind the Trump/Stone fiasco: Donald is desperately trying to block the one thing he fears the most in his life.
“It’s a continuation of the cover-up,” the former Democratic presidential candidate explained. “Because the one thing that Trump is fearful of when it comes to his being president is that finally, we will see how illegitimate his victory actually was.”
Clinton explained that Trump is terrified that people will finally see his involvement in the effort to rig the 2016 election through foreign interference and according to her, Stone was a crucial part of that fiasco.
“Roger Stone was in the middle of it all,” she stated. “And that’s why Trump had to cover it up.”
The fact of the matter is, we all know that Trump’s intentions behind this pardon were not pure. However, nothing has made more sense than what Hillary Clinton had to say.
