Roger Stone, someone who has been a friend and employee of Donald Trump for quite some time, has predicted that death could be on the horizon for him in his upcoming prison stint with the world currently in the middle of the COVID-19 crisis.
Stone would request a new trial, but on Thursday, the federal judge who would sentence him a 40-month sentence in prison would knock down his request. The request for a new trial has been under intensity since February, this after one of the jurors was found out to have a negative bias against Stone.
During an interview with Tucker Carlson Tonight on Friday, Stone would discuss his prison sentence that he is slated to serve.
"So, at this point, the judge has ordered me to surrender in two weeks, and at 67 years old, with some underlying health problems, including a history of asthma, I believe with the coronavirus, it is essentially a death sentence," Stone would explain.
