Roger Stone may not be an actual supervillain but he sure dresses like one.
On Thursday, the longtime Republican political strategist and informal adviser to President Donald Trump received a 40-month sentence after being convicted of witness tampering, false statements, and obstruction of justice, as Business Insider previously reported .
He was also given a $20,000 fine, 250 hours of community service, and four years of probation that will begin after he serves his initial sentence.
"The defendant lied about a matter of great national and international significance," US District Court Judge Amy Berman Jackson said as she sentenced Stone. "This is not campaign hijinks. This is not just Roger being Roger."
The sentence stems from charges levied against Stone in 2019 by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller : 5 counts of making false statements to the FBI and congressional investigators, one count of witness tampering, and one count of obstruction of justice. These charges were in turn related to Mueller's investigation into possible collusion between Trump's presidential campaign and the government of Russia ahead of the 2016 election.
