2. More likely, maybe much more likely (all this is my opinion only): Trump ignores his advisors. Stone receives his pardon very late some Friday afternoon very soon, probably on a Friday that ends a particularly busy week from the standpoint of news or other election-related events like primaries or caucuses.

Either way. I say definitely less than one year from now.

Isn't Stone out while he appeals his sentence? I doubt Trump will do anything until the appeals process runs through its duration, since he is sure Stone will be exonerated (I know, I know).
