Trump-ally Roger Stone says President Donald Trump saved his life from a “near-death” prison sentence by granting him clemency on Friday, Stone said in his first interview Monday on “Hannity” since the President announced his decision.

“I know there were many many people that told him ‘in an election year, don’t do this, let Roger Stone wait maybe for a pardon after the election.’ Sean, I don’t think I would’ve lived that long, not with my asthmatic condition, not with now 60 COVID-19 cases in that prison, ” Stone said.

“I have deep deep affection for Donald Trump because I’ve known him 40 years, he’s a man of great justice and fairness, he’s a man of enormous courage, I knew he would take some shots for this, but I think most people, most fair minded people understand. He saved my life and at least on paper, he gave me a chance to fight for vindication.”

Stone says he’s hoping to have a “fair second trial.” “Now, I’m not a fool,” Stone explained. “I’m gonna be guided by the advice of my lawyers. As I understand it, if my conviction is overturned by the Appeals court, I’d be back in front of Judge Jackson. Judge Jackson issued an incredible ruling that said that I could not raise misconduct by the Special Counsel, the FBI, the DOJ, or any member of Congress, Adam Schiff.”

Trump, on Monday, said Stone’s investigation was baseless, adding that former FBI Director James Comey, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former FBI agent Peter Strzok, former FBI lawyer Lisa Page, former CIA Director John Brennan and others were the guilty ones who lied and altered documents to target him and the people around him. “I’m getting rave reviews for what I did for Roger Stone,” Trump said.

DOJ charges eleven pro-life protesters ‘aided and abetted by one another’

DOJ

Eleven pro-life protesters were charged with violating federal law by the Department of Justice Wednesday for blocking abortion clinics. The individuals, “aided and abetted by one another, used force and physical obstruction to injure, intimidate, and interfere with employees of the clinic and a patient who was seeking reproductive health services” said the DOJ.

According to a summary of the indictment, seven of the demonstrators were charged with conspiracy against rights secured by the Freedom of Access to Clinic Entrances (FACE) Act, which prohibits obstructing the entrance to an abortion facility. The remaining four were charged with violating the legislation.

Pro-life activist AJ Hurley told Live Action News  the FBI raided the home of Chester Gallagher, the organizer of the protest and one of the accused conspirators, on Tuesday with guns drawn. He said Gallagher’s neighbors told him Gallagher was out of state when the FBI showed up and entered his home.

National Review reports that Hurley also told Live Action News that the FBI reportedly recently called a few of the charged individuals to tell them they had arrest warrants and that they must turn themselves in. If convicted, those charged with conspiracy could face up to eleven years in prison and fines up to $250,000, the DOJ confirmed.

National Review writes:

Gallagher allegedly advertised a series of pro-life events on social media for March 2021 in the Nashville area. The indictment claims he and other coordinators recruited participants to travel to the city and erect a blockade, which Gallagher allegedly called a “rescue,” at Carafem Health Center Clinic in Mount Juliet, Tenn., to prevent pregnant women from pursuing abortions.

A livestream of the stand-in shows activists chanting and singing prayer up the stairs to and along the hallway outside the abortion clinic, located in an office complex. Police officers eventually appeared in the video urging them to take their protest outside to the sidewalk.

“This is not allowed guys. Asking you to leave the property or I will call the police,” a security guard can be heard saying. The indictment alleges that the group prevented a patient and an employee from entering the facility. After they refused to leave the premises, the activists were reportedly escorted away to jail by police on misdemeanor trespassing charges. One pro-life activist wroteon March 6, 2021, on Facebook the claim that one “rescuer” was held on $1,000 bail, six, including Gallagher, on $1,500 bail, and two on $2,500 bail.
