WASHINGTON – Several Republican lawmakers expressed concern Wednesday over President Donald Trump’s comments on the prison sentencing of longtime ally Roger Stone, an issue that prompted swift calls for investigations by Democrats and criticism that the president was interfering in a criminal investigation. 

“I don’t think he should be commenting on cases in the system,” said Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. “I don’t think that’s appropriate.”

A handful of others agreed. “The president should not have gotten involved,” said Sen. Susan Collins, a Maine Republican. 

“I think the president’s tweet aggravated the situation,” said Sen. John Kennedy, R-La., who added, “He’s entitled to tweet. I wish he’d tweet less, but that’s not gonna happen.”
