Nydia Bertran has been by Roger Stone’s side for 30 years.
On Friday, her husband’s sentence was commuted by President Trump through an executive grant of clemency just days before he was supposed to start his time in prison.
A statement from the White House called the charges against Stone a “product of recklessness borne of frustration and malice.”
Trump previously hinted about pardoning Stone, and said he is a “victim of a corrupt and illegal Witch Hunt, one which will go down as the greatest political crime in history.”
While the president’s commutation of Stone’s sentence eliminates his sentence, it does not get eliminate his conviction.
Stone’s devoted wife has staunchly defended the self-proclaimed ‘dirty trickster’ on Twitter, calling him “brilliant”.

Her early years were spent in an affluent part of Cuba where she studied at prestigious schools.
However, after Fidel Castro came to power in 1959, her father decided to move to the US with the family.
Nydia started working in the US instead of going back to school.
Stone told New York Times in 1999 that he “never owned a pair of blue jeans until I met my second wife.”
The smitten couple met in the 1980s while attending a Ronald Reagan presidential campaign where Nydia was taking photos, according to the Washington Post.
Described as “glamorous” in media reports, the former model’s family shifted to America from Cuba, where her dad worked as a diplomat prior to Castro’s era.

Back in 2018, she tweeted: “I am so proud of my husband Roger Stone for speaking the truth while his critics lie about him and Donald Trump.”
In December last year, she tweeted about “dancing with Trump at my wedding to Roger Stone”.
