The case has been an unethical mess in the last 24 hours….
First the government lawyers ask the federal judge to give stone 7-9 years jail time for being convicted on seven charges…
Then we get a tweet from Donald Trump, the President complaining about how harsh the government jail time is….
Then we get the lawyers getting media questions about what next….
THEN we get informed by the Washington DOJ headquarters that the boss does NOT support the 7-9 years?
One DOJ lawyer leading the case says I’m out and walks….
Then a second…
Then a third…
Then finally a fourth….
To which headquarters informs the judge that the United States Justice Dept. no longer has suggestion on how much jail time a former Trump running buddy should get….And the judge should go easy on the guy…
The four lawyers who prosecuted Roger Stone quit the case Tuesday after the Justice Department overruled them and said it would take the extraordinary step of lowering the amount of prison time it would seek for President Donald Trump’s longtime ally and confidant.
The departures raised immediate questions over whether Trump, who earlier in the day had blasted the original sentencing recommendation as “very horrible and unfair,” had at least indirectly exerted his will on a Justice Department that he often views as an arm of the White House.
The department said the decision to undo the sentencing recommendation was made Monday night — before Trump’s tweet — and prosecutors had not spoken to the White House about it. Even so, the departures of the entire trial team broke open a simmering dispute over the punishment of a Trump ally whose case has long captured the president’s attention. The episode was the latest to entangle the Justice Department, meant to operate free from White House sway in criminal investigations and prosecutions, in presidential politics….
NBC News: “The U.S. attorney who had presided over an inconclusive criminal investigation into former acting FBI director Andrew McCabe was abruptly removed from that job last month in one of several recent moves by Attorney General William Barr to take control of legal matters of personal interest to President Trump.”
It gets worst….
(Rudy Giuliani WAS being investigated by the US Attorney in the Southern District of NY…Now?…Well Rudy is working with US Senator Graham and the DOJ directly on investigation Joe Biden’s son…Hunter Biden?)
It’s NOT funny ….
But ya can’t make this shit up….
Worst these guys are ALL lawyers except PRESIDENT Donald Trump…
