Yep, another one bites the dust.  Trump buddy, and criminal associate, Roger Stone, received a sentence of 3-years and 4-months for lying to Congress under oath, obstructing an investigation, and witness tampering.

WASHINGTON — Roger Stone, a longtime friend and ally of President Donald Trump, was sentenced Thursday to 40 months in prison and two years of probation, a punishment that is likely to fuel criticism from the president and speculation that he'll pardon the flamboyant GOP operative.

Though less than what prosecutors originally asked for before the Justice Department overruled them, the sentence marks a stunning downfall for the longtime political consultant who has advised presidential campaigns stretching back to Richard Nixon.

Stone, 67, was found guilty in November of lying to the House Intelligence Committee and obstructing its investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential race. He also was convicted of threatening a potential congressional witness.

It is expected that Trump will pardon him right after the election.
