Unpacking Why Federal Prosecutors Quit The Roger Stone Case

US Attorney General William Barr arrives for US President Donald Trump's State of the Union address to a joint session of the US Congress in the House Chamber of the US Capitol in Washington US

US President Donald Trump has declined to say whether he is considering pardoning longtime adviser Roger Stone, who was found guilty past year of lying to Congress, obstruction and witness tampering.

US Attorney General Bill Barr on Thursday delivered a highly unusual public rebuke of Donald Trump, saying the president's tweets were making his job at the Justice Department "impossible".

Trump's disdain for the rule of law and his refusal to be constrained to the ordinary rules that govern presidential behavior are well known.

Fox Information reported on Wednesday that the forewoman of the Stone jury was an anti-Trump Democratic activist.

Republican senators, who almost all voted to acquit Mr Trump of impeachment charges, offered muted criticism of the President but shrugged off suggestions they should investigate whether his political concerns were influencing law enforcement.

Justice Department officials and the White House said Trump did not influence that decision.

The request contradicted an initial seven-to-nine-year recommendation made by frontline federal prosecutors and came after Trump publicly criticized the initial recommendation.

"The president should not have gotten involved", said Sen.

President Trump and the Justice Department said there was no communication over the sentencing issue. Jackson was one of two judges who sentenced former Trump 2016 campaign chair Manafort to prison and tidily dismissed a going-nowhere lawsuit against Clinton over the ginned up Benghazi scandal. He was succeeded by current Attorney General William Barr.

"It is incumbent upon public officials and members of the legal profession, whose sworn duty it is to uphold the law, to do everything in their power to preserve the integrity of the justice system", Perry Martinez said in the ABA statement.

Stone was convicted in November of tampering with a witness and obstructing the House investigation into whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russian Federation to tip the 2016 election.

"While he has the right to have a conversation with the attorney general, he did not", White House spokesman Hogan Gidley told reporters.

Malcolm estimated, "I don't think the president did anything wrong", adding, "I don't think, particularly, he did Roger Stone any favors".

Stone was one of several close Trump associates charged in Mueller's probe, which Trump called a "witch hunt".

All 10 Democrats on the Senate Judiciary Committee called for an investigation.

Trump had nominated Liu in December 2019 to serve as the under secretary for terrorism and financial crimes in the Treasury Department.

Bruce Rogow, Stone's lawyer, declined to comment.

Impeached President Donald Trump's interference in the DOJ's sentencing recommendation for his convicted adviser, Roger Stone, is unprecedented, unnecessary and undemocratic.
