Trump and Barr Turning DOJ Into A DOJ Putin Would Like- Decisions Based Solely On Politics

can anybody say, "How Putin like?" you would not be surprised if a Putin pal got off on a federal charge, or least got off way easy despite what the lesser federal prosecuting attorneys wanted his punishment to be, if Putin's hand picked "Attorney General" in charge of the alleged "Department of Justice" was told by Putin to ease up on his corrupt pal, by such obvious corruption and intimidation in that country- but now in this country? Barr should be impeached.


All four federal prosecutors who ran the Roger Stone trial abruptly dropped out of the case on Tuesday after senior Department of Justice leadership intervened to take the rare step of walking back the prosecutors’ sentencing recommendation. The extraordinary series of events marks the latest sign of President Donald Trump and his appointees politicizing DOJ.
On Tuesday afternoon, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the District of Columbia filed a new recommendation asking that Stone, a longtime Trump adviser, be sentenced to prison but not suggesting any particular length of time.

The more lenient recommendation was a rapid turnaround after federal prosecutors Aaron S.J. Zelinsky, Adam C. Jed, Jonathan Kravis and Michael Marando told the court on Monday that Stone should face seven to nine years behind bars for witness tampering and lying to Congress. But that was before Trump publicly raged against the proposed sentence, tweeting that “this miscarriage of justice” cannot be allowed.

A jury convicted Stone in November on seven counts, including witness tampering, lying to Congress and obstructing an official proceeding. He was one of the highest-profile Trump allies to face prosecution as a result of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Prosecutors in the U.S. attorney’s office had intensely debated what sentence to recommend for Stone, according to The Washington Post, ultimately settling on 87 to 108 months to reflect the severity of his crimes. They cited federal guidelines that call for longer sentences if the offender has threatened physical harm or property damage, which Stone did when he told prosecution witness Randy Credico that he should “prepare to die.”

The prosecutors also wrote that a longer sentence would send the message that Stone’s crimes, which took place “in the context of a congressional investigation on matters of critical national importance,” should not be taken lightly.

Was just wondering if anyone's heard anything about the investigation into the Bidens lately? Or does the fact that he's not looking like the likely nominee now make that somehow "unimportant"? :rolleyes:

Barr has opened a channel for world-renowned conspiracy theorist Rudy to bring Biden dirt from Ukraine to the DOJ.

it's not as important now, that Biden's not doing well in the primaries, however they still want to attempt to "deligitimize" impeachment, so it's still a thing.

Holy f*** what have we become?
