Fox News' Tucker Carlson Wants To Know When Roger Stone Is Getting Pardoned

Fox News host Tucker Carlson has suggested that President Donald Trump should pardon Roger Stone following the submission of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigative report to the Department of Justice.

Despite the unknown contents of the report, which was submitted to the DoJ on Friday, Carlson drew his own conclusions on what should happen next––including a pardon for longtime Trump advisor Stone.

"You have heard that the Mueller report arrived with no further indictments according to a senior DOJ official. That is it. No one else will be indicted in this investigation, for collusion or anything else," Carlson said on Tucker Carlson Tonight just hours after the report was submitted.

"So to repeat, after all of this, after years of this: Not a single American citizen has been charged with anything related to Russian collusion," he added, running through a list of people who had not been indicted for collusion––including Stone.

People "have had their lives ruined by the Mueller investigation," Carlson said. "Some could die in prison. Not one of them colluded with Russia."

Stone was arrested in January and indicted on charges of obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements, in a move that he described at the time as politically motivated.

"Roger Stone is facing life in prison," Carlson said. "He was indicted by an investigation designed to find collusion––indicted on minor charges. He was dragged from his own home in a morning FBI raid."

"Stone is still looking at life in prison. Where is Roger Stone's pardon? His pardon from the president. Let's hope it comes very soon," he added.

Attorney General William Barr has come under pressure from Democrats to release the entire contents of the report to the public––something he has been reluctant to commit to doing as yet. However, it is likely lawmakers will be informed of Mueller's findings this weekend, The Hill reported.
