On Thursday, as President Donald Trump's former campaign strategist and friend Roger Stone's sentencing hearing was broadcast around the nation, the president himself took to Twitter to rage against the trial — and baselessly call for Hillary Clinton and former FBI officials James Comey and Andrew McCabe to be prosecuted as well:

Trump is widely expected to be considering a pardon for Stone, who was convicted of false statements, obstruction, and witness tampering in connection with former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russia. After prosecutors recommended 7 to 9 years, his Justice Department intervened to say that the sentence should be far more lenient.
