Nothing Trump Does Affects Roger Stone Sentencing

Nothing Trump Does Affects Roger Stone Sentencing

Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who is presiding over Roger Stone’s trial, has complete discretion in sentencing and is fully independent of President Donald Trump, explained John Malcolm, senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation, vice president of the Institute for Constitutional Government, and director of the Meese Center for Legal & Judicial Studies.

On Tuesday, four Justice Department (DOJ) attorneys — described as “leftover Mueller prosecutors” by Malcolm — who tried Roger Stone, resigned their positions in protest against a DOJ recommendation to reduce their original sentencing recommendations.

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and other Democrats are accusing Trump of inappropriately “interfering with career prosecutors in a politically sensitive case,” added Malcolm, noting Schumer’s call for an investigation to be launched by the DOJ’s inspector general following the aforementioned prosecutors’ resignations.

Despite the DOJ’s statement that Trump had not directed it towards any action regarding Roger Stone, “[Donald Trump] has left himself open to that charge,” determined Malcolm, highlighting Trump’s recent tweets.

Two months in jail for a Swamp Creature, yet 9 years recommended for Roger Stone (who was not even working for the Trump Campaign).
