Mueller case is a slam dunk and he is too slim to be turned



The long-awaited accusation of Roger Stone finally fell on Friday, and it landed on rock like the numerous bricks. As a person who pursued Scooter Libby and others on similar charges and defended white collar cases involving similar charges as the alleged here-false statements, obstruction of justice and witness manipulation – my takeaway is that Stone should start getting his matters in order. To exclude a presidential congratulation (always the possibility of wild cards with a POTUS as Trump) Stone will be sentenced and receive a very substantial prison sentence. This is as close to a slam-dunk case as a prosecutor will ever bring.

There are several types of defense that are typically used to defend a case like this, and none of them are viable here.

"I didn't actually say what the government claims, I said / the government didn't understand what I was saying."

This defense can often work when the false statements are based on an interview conducted by field agents that you just need to take notes of the interview and not record it. In these cases, the defendant can plausibly claim that either they did not understand the agents' questions or the agents did not understand or did not remind their answers exactly. Any ambiguity in the question or the answer can be exploited. But it won't work for Stone, because the whole congressional hearing was transcribed, properly. The questions and answers were under oath and were not at all ambiguous or open to interpretation.
