Gabriel Sherman: According to sources, Trump has told people he wants to commute Stone's sentence before Stone reports to prison on July 14. Sources say the West Wing is at war over a possible Stone commutation. White House counsel Pat Cipollone is against the move, and even Attorney General Bill Barr is opposed. "Barr has told Trump not to do it, and if he does there will be a mutiny at DOJ," said a source briefed on the internal debates.
