Republican operative Roger Stone appealed to President Donald Trump to grant him a pardon or commute his sentence before he starts a 40-month prison term on July 14.

“I want the president to know that I have exhausted all my legal remedies and that only an act of clemency will provide justice in my case and save my life!” Stone, 67, said in a text message Tuesday. Neither Stone nor his lawyer has been in touch with the White House about the request, he said.
