“Roger Stone is a victim of the Russia Hoax that the Left and its allies in the media perpetuated for years in an attempt to undermine the Trump presidency,” the White House said in a statement Friday evening.
Aaron Zelinsky, a former member of Robert Mueller's team, will testify that DOJ prosecutors in the Roger Stone case were “afraid” of President Trump.
Lawyers for Assange are basically putting Trump on trial for politicizing the U.S. legal system.
Trump posted a clip from Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show where he attacked Judge Amy Berman Jackson and called Stone’s prosecution “wholly political.”
Judge Amy Berman Jackson told Trump’s old confidant: “The truth still exists. The truth still matters.”
Saying the quiet part out loud and on the record.
Trump tweeted his praise for Barr “for taking charge of a case that was totally out of control and perhaps should not have even been brought.”
Aaron Zelinsky resigned hours after a late-night tweet from Trump expressing sympathy for Stone, who was convicted of telling criminal lies to protect Trump from the Russia investigation.
The Department of Justice signaled plans to significantly lower Stone's sentence recommendation on Tuesday.
