OPINION| Mark Sidney| I was looking forward to seeing what kind of fireworks were going to come out of AG Barr now presiding over the end of the initial coup against Trump, aka, ‘The Witch Hunt.’
It is beginning to looks like Barr is going to split the baby and not drop the charges on Flynn or Stone, but perhaps lighten the sentences that they face.
The fact that Roger Stone is looking at dying in prison over an investigation that revealed no Russian collusion, is a travesty of justice IMHO.
The Gateway Pundit reported:
‘First Aaron Zelinsky abruptly resigned, then Jonathan Kravis resigned, according to a court filing in Washington federal court.
Then it was reported that a third Mueller prosecutor Adam Jed announced he will withdraw from the Roger Stone case.
The fourth and final prosecutor on Roger Stone’s case is OUT!
Federal Prosecutors on Monday recommended Trump confidante Roger Stone serve 7-9 years in prison for process crimes during the Mueller witch hunt.
Roger Stone is a non-violent 67-year-old man who was caught up in
Weissmann’s Mueller’s abusive witch hunt.
In a rare move, the Department of Justice backed down from its abusive sentencing recommendation for Roger Stone.
All four prosecutors signed Roger Stone’s sentencing memo seeking an excessive prison term of 7 to 9 years and all four are now off the case.’
CNBC also reported:
Four federal prosecutors dramatically quit the criminal case against Republican operative Roger Stone as the Department of Justice reduced their recommendation that a judge sentence the longtime ally of President Donald Trump to up to nine years in prison.
Jonathan Kravis, who delivered the closing argument at Stone’s trial last fall, resigned as an assistant U.S. Attorney, according to a court filing in Washington federal court.
Kravis, who did not give a reason in the filing, will no longer work as a prosecutor for the federal government.
The other three prosecutors, Aaron Zelinsky, Adam Jed and Michael Marando, also withdrew from Stone’s case, according to their own separate filings, which did not explain their decision.
But those three all will continue working for the federal government.
Barr’s DOJ stated that they were ‘shocked’ by the excessive prison term that the witch hunters had been seeking for Roger Stone, apparently the long bid was not what the DOJ has initially been briefed on.
“The Department was shocked to see the sentencing recommendation in the filing in the Stone case last night,” Fox News was told. “The sentencing recommendation was not what had been briefed to the Department.”
President Trump stirred up some controversy by attacking the potential prison term for Stone as an “insult to our country!”
Do you think Trump should pardon Stone?
