Longtime GOP strategist Roger Stone will petition his former boss, President Donald Trump, to pardon the ringleader of a 2014 armed standoff with federal agents.
Stone announced on Twitter Friday night that he would appeal to Trump on behalf of Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy, who will stand trial Oct. 10 for incitinga rebellion against Bureau of Land Management officials that attempted to stop Bundy from illegally grazing his cattle on federal land.
I will return to Las Vegas on Sept 15 to call on @realDonaldTrump to pardon the Bundys and their supporters

Bundy was arrested in February 2016 on weapons charges and a conspiracy charge to interfere with a federal officer.
