The court agreed to postpone the beginning of the sentence by ex-adviser to Trump

The Columbia District Federal Court ordered former Presidential Advisor Donald Trump Roger Stone to appear at the Prison Bureau to serve his sentence before July 14, according to documents posted on the court’s database.
Thus, the court agreed to give Stone two additional weeks before the start of the sentence, although he initially requested that this period be postponed to September this year.
“I decide to postpone the date of the defendant’s arrival at the Prison Bureau for another fourteen days, until July 14, 2020,” the judge said.
A court in Washington sentenced Stone in February to three years and four months in prison on false charges, obstruction of justice, and witnesses. The jury found it proven that he had lied to the House Intelligence Committee to “hide the unsightly truth” about his communication with the WikiLeaks website. The prosecution claimed that Stone intended to obtain incriminating information about the Democrats from the site to help Trump in the election campaign.
