President Trump late Saturday lashed out at a pair of Republican senators after they criticized his decision to commute the prison sentence of longtime confidant and former campaign adviser Roger Stone.

In a tweet, Trump accused Sens. Mitt Romney (R-Utah) and Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) of being “RINOS,” a pejorative meaning “Republican in name only.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“Do RINO’S Pat Toomey & Mitt Romney have any problem with the fact that we caught Obama, Biden, & Company illegally spying on my campaign?” Trump asked in a tweet, claiming that an investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election included “lying and leaking all the way.”

Romney and Toomey are the only Republican senators to criticize the move so far.

“An American president commutes the sentence of a person convicted by a jury of lying to shield that very president,” Romney said.

Toomey called the move a “mistake” and noted AG Willam Barr referred to Stone’s sentence as “fair.”

“The president clearly has the legal and constitutional authority to grant clemency for federal crimes,” Toomey said. “However, this authority should be used judiciously and very rarely by any president.”

  1. It’s obvious that Roger Stone was set up. His house was raided and filmed by the msm. What about the tainted head juror and leftist Obama judge!
    President Trump was 100% correct to grant him clemency. Romney and Toomy are not logical and dead wrong in their comments.
