“Yes, I did see the president last night in passing at the Trump International Golf Club in West Palm Beach,” Stone advised ABC News Monday. “My wife and I both had the opportunity to thank the president personally for righting the injustice of my conviction in a Soviet-style show trial, which featured the epic bias of the judge who withheld exculpatory evidence from my defense, misconduct by the jury forewoman and substantial misconduct by the prosecutors.”

Stone advised ABC News he and his spouse, Nydia Stone, have been the visitors of Newsmax writer Christopher Ruddy for the membership’s buffet dinner, the place they bumped into Trump, who was eating with household.

“The president decided to dine at the club with his son Donald Trump Jr., Kimberley Guilfoil, Eric Trump and his wife Lara Trump. Because of his decision to sign the stimulus bill, it was unclear whether the president would dine at the club, which he normally does on Sunday nights when he is visiting Mar-A-Lago,” Stone stated.

The White House declined to remark to ABC News on the matter.

Because the membership guidelines prohibit pictures of diners for privateness causes, the Stones declined to supply a photograph.

However, ABC News reached a supply who was current in a eating room of about 100 diners who supplied a photograph of Trump greeting Stone with a pleasant pat on the shoulder.

Stone, a decades-long pal and former marketing campaign adviser to Trump, who’s usually described as a political “dirty trickster,” was charged and convicted on a seven-count indictment of obstructing justice, witness tampering and a number of counts of mendacity to Congress in particular counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling within the 2016 presidential election in November of 2019.

In July, days earlier than the veteran GOP operative was scheduled to report back to a federal penitentiary in Georgia, Trump commuted Stone’s 40-month jail sentence.

Trump’s full presidential pardon, issued Dec. 23, nullifies Stone’s conviction solely.
