Judge Amy Berman Jackson stood up to Trump when she sentenced his crooked friend Roger Stone to 40 months in prison for lying to Congress and tampering with a witness in an effort to hide how he helped Trump get Russia to interfere in the election.

In her sentencing statement, Judge Jackson said Stone “was not prosecuted for standing up for the president; he was prosecuted for covering up for the president.”

But…and it’s a big one…Trump has already hinted he may pardon Stone.
