Of course, Roger Stone will wear the conviction as a red badge of courage, so it’s not like it does anything to him personally.
It does mean however that he can no longer own or possess firearms and is no longer allowed to vote.
It also sends a very clear message: If you lie for Trump, steal for Trump, kill for…
