Roger StoneLawmakers on both sides of the aisle reacted Friday night to news President Donald Trump commuted the sentence of his longtime confidant Roger Stone. Democrats accused Trump of abusing his power while some Republicans applauded the move.

Stone is a Republican operative convicted of lying to Congress to protect the president's campaign from an investigation into Russian election interference.

He was convicted of lying to investigators about efforts by Trump campaign aides to learn about WikiLeaks' plans to release emails that Russian operatives stole from Hillary Clinton's campaign. Former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation found Russia undertook a "sweeping" campaign to help Trump, but found no evidence he coordinated with the effort.
