A Florida preacher says Roger Stone, facing up to 50 years in jail later this month on a his felony conviction, prayed with evangelical leader Franklin Graham and has “put his faith in God.”
“Hundreds of Graham’s supporters flocked to meet Roger with nothing but well-wishes, support, and prayers,” Tampa Bay area-based millennial pastor Randy Coggins told the Gateway Pundit about Stone's attendance at Graham's Florida tour.
“Even Franklin Graham himself had a few moments of Prayer Fellowship with Roger that day at the event,” he told the outlet.
Stone is set for sentencing in District Court in Washington on Feb. 20 for seven felony counts of lying to investigators, obstructing a congressional probe and witness tampering — crimes that carry a maximum sentence of 50 years in prison.
Coggins, who serves as Stone’s spiritual adviser, said he’ll speak on his behalf during his sentencing hearing, the outlet reported.
“Despite his best efforts, Roger Stone was charged and found guilty of crimes that he did not commit,” Coggins told the outlet.
“Moreover, he was silenced by the court with a gag order to prevent him from being able to speak out against the injustice committed to him by the deep state in league with fake news media. He is still under this gag order even after being ‘convicted.’ This is totally unconstitutional.”
Coggins is calling on President Donald Trump to pardon Stone.
“Roger has stood tall for President Donald Trump for over 30 years – now I ask President Trump to stand tall for him,” Coggins said in a statement that included a link to a pardon petition.
