Mueller: Stone remains a convicted felon, and rightly so

https://news.yahoo.com/robert-mueller-defends-russia-investigation-224136724.html

With all the discussions about what can be done about Stone's commutation, I was wondering if he can be called by the House to testify again, either on the same matters that lead to his conviction or other investigations the House committees may have undertaken. The pressure on Stone to spill the beans this time would be double what it was, since lying would make him a repeat offender with a criminal record, and the potential punishment for it would be exponential. Selling Trump out may be a more acceptable option for Stone the next time around.

Is there a way to reopen any prior investigations? Would this require new information pertinent to the investigation?

Sen. Cory Booker (D), who dropped out of the presidential race last year, easily dispatched progressive activist Lawrence Hamm, holding a nearly 80-point lead with over 32 percent of precincts reporting.

Rep. Frank Pallone Jr. (D), the chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee who had earned the ire of progressives over his refusal to embrace the Green New Deal, defeated Russ Cirincione, a government attorney, and Amani Al-Khatahtbeh, an author who runs MuslimGirl.com.

Meanwhile, Rep. Albio Sires (D), who raised eyebrows by going negative against his progressive challenger Hector Oseguera, won with 76 percent of the vote, while Rep. Bonnie Watson Coleman (D) easily prevailed in the 12th District.

A couple of races remained uncalled as of midnight on Wednesday, though in both cases the incumbents had built substantial leads, with Rep. Bill Pascrell (D) leading by about 70 points and Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D) leading by nearly 40 points.
