The Department of Justice team prosecuting Roger Stone, created quite the stir last week when they recommended Stone serve seven to nine years in prison in their sentencing guidelines. Roger Stone was found guilty in November of obstructing a congressional investigation and lying to congress, among other charges, in a case stemming from former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s “Russia Investigation”.
The Jury foreman in the case was initially questioned concerning the potential for bias, she stated she didn’t really follow Stone, which was untrue according to evidence uncovered.
The Jury foreman had anti-Trump bias and mocked Roger Stone’s arrest on Twitter but was allowed to be the head juror in Stone’s trial.— ALX 🇺🇸 (@alx) February 21, 2020
She lied. This was perjury.
Why was this allowed to happen
On Twitter, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused President Trump of “political interference in the sentencing of Roger Stone.” She also suggested that the DOJ should be investigated. Speaker Pelosi and other figures on the Left commended the attorneys for withdrawing from the case and implied that their resignations were given in protest of the DOJ’s decision to reduce the sentence recommendation.
By tweet @realDonaldTrump engaged in political interference in the sentencing of Roger Stone. It is outrageous that DOJ has deeply damaged the rule of law by withdrawing its recommendation. Stepping down of prosecutors should be commended & actions of DOJ should be investigated.— Nancy Pelosi (@SpeakerPelosi) February 12, 2020
Many on the Left are outraged at the reduced sentencing, declaring that the White House’s influence is destroying the rule of law.
The Right initially cheered both the President’s Tweets and the Department of Justice’s decision to overrule and reduce the sentencing recommendations; today the right is pointing at the seeming corruption and prosecutorial bias in favor of the Left in the justice department:
Andrew McCabe—0 months in prison— Charlie Kirk (@charliekirk11) February 20, 2020
Hillary Clinton—0 months in prison
James Comey—0 months in prison
John Brennan—0 months in prison
Strzok & Page—0 months in prison
But Roger Stone—40 months in prison
Is this what "Justice" looks like in America?
