4 Prosecutors Withdraw From Roger Stone Case After Being Undercut By Higher Ups

Seeing how 4 Federal Prosecutors have withdrawn from Roger Stone’s case after higher up Department of Justice officials undercut them in sentencing, it sounds to me like Attorney General Barr and possibly others are following Trump’s wishes to go easy on Stone who is Trump’s friend.

If this is true, it is at the very least disturbing and in my opinion highly unethical. The DOJ is supposed to be more autonomous from the White House than other departments. It’s supposed to mete out justice fairly and impartially without White House interference.

Undercutting the Federal Prosecutors running the case in order to give special treatment to a Trump crony goes against what the DOJ is supposed to stand for. That is not impartial justice.

In my opinion, it sounds like gross favoritism and probably flat out corruption.
