Republican Senator Mitt Romney has joined the chorus of criticism from Democrats angry at United States President Donald Trump for commuting the sentence of long-time friend and former advisor Roger Stone.

The Utah Senator and one-time Presidential nominee tweeted out, “unprecedented, historic corruption: an American president commutes the sentence of a person convicted by a jury of lying to shield that very president.”

Mr Stone was convicted of lying to congress and witness tampering as a result of the Russia investigation.

He was sentenced to 3 years 4 months prison before President Trump’s intervention.
