From The Daily Wire:
On Saturday, Senator Mitt Romney (R-UT) sent out a tweet condemning President Trump’s commutation of Roger Stone’s prison sentence.

Tucker Carlson lauded President Trump’s commutation of longtime Republican political consultant Roger Stone’s prison sentence Friday, saying the 67-year-old had been the victim of a “nakedly political” set-up aimed to put him away for the rest of his “useful and expected life.”
