    Roger Stone Trial *Update 2020*

    Federal prosecutors quit Stone case after DOJ overrules prosecutors on sentencing request.

    Washington (CNN)Three federal prosecutors have withdrawn from the case against longtime Donald Trump confidant Roger Stone after a decision by top Justice Department officials to disavow and undercut their own federal prosecutors by reducing the government's recommended sentence against him.

    The stunning and politically charged decision to reduce prosecutors' recommended sentence of up to nine years came hours after Trump publicly criticized it, immediately raising questions about the Justice Department's independence from political pressure. Although prosecutors called for prison time for Stone in a revised filing Tuesday afternoon, they said "far less" would be appropriate. Ultimately, the presiding judge in the case will have the final say on Stone's sentence.

    Prosecutors from the US Attorney's office in Washington, who are employees of the Justice Department, had initially said Monday that Stone should be sentenced to seven to nine years in prison after he was convicted on seven charges last year that derived from former special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, including lying to Congress and witness tampering.

    That recommendation led Trump overnight Tuesday to bemoan what he called a "horrible and very unfair situation."
    "The real crimes were on the other side, as nothing happens to them. Cannot allow this miscarriage of justice!" Trump said. He later told reporters in the Oval Office that he didn't ask the Justice Department to change the sentencing recommendation.

    Tuesday afternoon, federal prosecutors asked for Stone to still be sentenced to prison, though for "far less" than the office had asked for a day earlier, according to a new filing. The prosecutors decline to say how much time in prison Stone should serve.

    "While it remains the position of the United States that a sentence of incarceration is warranted here, the government respectfully submits that the range of 87 to 108 months presented as the applicable advisory Guidelines range would not be appropriate or serve the interests of justice in this case," the prosecutors write.
    A senior Justice Department official said that that original sentencing recommendation, transmitted to a judge and signed off on by the office's top prosecutor, had not been communicated to leadership at the Justice Department.

    "The Department was shocked to see the sentencing recommendation," the official told CNN. "The Department believes the recommendation is extreme and excessive and is grossly disproportionate to Stone's offenses."

    The decision to make the change was directed by the leadership of the Justice Department, the official said. The department made the decision before the President's tweet and without consultation with the White House, according to Kerri Kupec, a Justice Department spokeswoman. The White House referred a request for comment to the Justice Department, and the US attorney's office in Washington declined to comment.

    Grant Smith, an attorney for Stone, said they look forward to reviewing the government's latest filing shortly.
    "We have read with interest the new reporting on Roger Stone's case. Our sentencing memo outlined our position on the recommendation made yesterday by the government. We look forward to reviewing the government's supplemental filing," Smith said in a statement. Stone's attorneys had argued a sentence of 15 to 21 months would be appropriate.

    Roger Stone Found Guilty on 7 Counts Including Lying to Congress, Witness Tampering

    Found on Twitter: “Judge Amy Berman Jackson is not beholden to #Barr. She can still give Roger Stone 9 years.

    What will happen:

    • DOJ recommends no jail and a pony.
    • Judge gives 9 years.
    • Trump pardons Stone and gives him a pony.
    • Pony dies because it was a Trump-brand pony.”

    Convicted and sentenced so there’s that. Q becomes when does the pardon get publicly announced?

    Stone going to appeal so he doesn’t go directly to prison. We’re at the end of Feb. with the appeal taking until Sept, Oct, Nov? Trump tells him: 1) sit tight, I’ll announce your pardon as a F-U during my victory speech on election night, 2) even if I lose, I’ll pardon you before leaving office...if that happens.

    Even with an election loss, count on Trump disputing the results and not leaving. Constitutional crisis with exponents.
