Trump commutes Stone's sentence

I am not bothered by this commutation. The justice system failed Stone; he was convicted solely of process crimes related to the Russia Hoax, and both judge and jury in his case displayed strong evidence of bias. While some of his actions were poorly considered, the commutation of his sentence does not clear his record, so a substantial penalty remains. Given Stone's age, the obvious lack of risk to the public, the prevalence of COVID cases in the prison system along with other risks, and the painful comparison to SpyGate conspirators already let off the hook for similar and worse actions, commutation of his prison term seems entirely reasonable.
