Federal Prosecutors recommended Monday that President Trump longtime confidante Roger Stone serve 7-9 years in prison for process crimes during the Mueller witch hunt.
Roger Stone is 67 years old.
Roger Stone was found guilty on SEVEN COUNTS brought against him by former special counsel Robert Mueller as part of his investigation into sham Russian collusion investigation in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
On Monday night President Trump posted on Twitter “This is a horrible and very unfair situation.”
After the president’s tweet the DOJ put out a statement on the excessive recommendation by the Mueller team on Roger Stone’s sentencing.
This was followed by three Mueller team attorneys resigning. Earlier today Aaron Zelinsky abruptly resigned, then Jonathan Kravis resigned, according to a court filing in Washington federal court.
And later this afternoon a third Mueller prosecutor Adam Zed announced he will withdraw from the Roger Stone case.
President Trump was asked about the Roger Stone case this afternoon in the White House.
President Trump: No I didn’t speak to the Justice… I would be able to do it if I wanted. I have the absolute right to do it. I stay out of things to a degree that people wouldn’t believe. But I didn’t speak to him. I thought the recommendation was ridiculous. I thought the whole prosecution was ridiculous. And I look at others who haven’t been prosecuted or I don’t know where it is now. But when you see that I thought it was an insult to our country and it shouldn’t happen.
