Fox News' Tucker Carlson Demands Trump Pardon Roger Stone, Says If He's Jailed 'Russia Lie Will Be Validated'

The case against Stone grew from former FBI Director Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. The Mueller report concluded that Russia had interfered in the election to benefit Trump, but did not find sufficient evidence for collusion by Trump, while also failing to exonerate the president. Carlson believes that claims of collusion were actually a "hoax" concocted by Democrats and he is worried that jailing Stone could undermine his theory.
"Stone's prosecution was designed in part to confirm the fantasy that Democrats have constructed to explain the outcome of the 2016 election," said Carlson on the Wednesday edition of his show Tucker Carlson Tonight. "His conviction helps their case. In other words, if the Russia collusion story was a hoax, and it most certainly was a hoax, then why is Roger Stone going to prison for his role in it?"
"If Roger Stone serves even a single day behind bars, the Russia lie will be validated as true," Carlson added. "Stone's imprisonment will be prima facie evidence in the view of Democrats. So, at this point there's only one solution. The president must pardon Roger Stone or commute his sentence before he goes to jail."
