Roger Stone sentencing: Trump attacks DOJ prosecutors



rssfeeds.usatoday.com

WASHINGTON — Hours after the Justice Department reduced its recommended sentence for his longtime friend, President Donald Trump escalated his attacks against the career prosecutors who handled the case.

“Prosecutorial Misconduct?” Trump tweeted Tuesday night. He followed up Wednesday morning: “Rogue prosecutors maybe?” 

In the day before, prosecutors recommended a lengthy prison sentence for Stone. Trump and the Justice Department criticized it. The decision was overruled.

One by one, the prosecutors quit the case. One resigned from the Justice Department. 

Now, Jonathan Kravis, Aaron Zelinsky, Adam Jed and Michael Marando have found themselves the target of the president’s anger, their names and faces flashed on TV screens. Some call them heroes. The president calls them the swamp. 

But their decision—calling for a lengthy prison sentence after a defendant had been convicted of lying to Congress, threatening a witness and five other crimes—was neither rogue nor misconduct, according to legal experts and former federal prosecutors.
