Roger Stone was set to report to prison on Tuesday, July 14 to serve his sentence for lying to Congress, witness tampering and obstructing the House investigation into allegations of Russian collusion.

The White House issued a response Sunday after former Special Counsel Robert Mueller published an op-ed in the Washington Post in which he defended the prosecution and conviction of political operative Roger Stone.

President Trump commuted Stone’s sentence on Friday, just days before it was set to begin. Stone was convicted of seven counts of obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements to Congress in relation to Mueller’s Russia investigation.
