Thats right! following a full day of deliberations, the jury returned guilty verdicts across the board’s decision and convicted him on all 7 counts he was facing. As we previously reported, Stone was facing 7 counts of making false statements to Congress, obstruction of justice and witness tampering in a case that was an offshoot of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

Stone is now the sixth Trump aide to be convicted of charges brought as part of Mueller’s probe. According to NBC, his sentencing is set for Feb. 6, and he is looking at up to 20 years in prison. So how does Donald Trump feel about this? Well, you know he took to Twitter to weigh in on it all.

Trump tweeted:

“So they now convict Roger Stone of lying and want to jail him for many years to come. Well, what about Crooked Hillary, Comey, Strzok, Page, McCabe, Brennan, Clapper, Shifty Schiff, Ohr & Nellie, Steele & all of the others, including even Mueller himself? Didn’t they lie?….”
