Megathread: Prosecutors in Roger Stone Trial Resign in Response to DOJ Request to Lessen Sentence

The Justice Department is changing its sentencing recommendation for Roger Stone, overruling career prosecutors who requested in a court filing Monday that the former Trump adviser serve 7–9 years in prison.

The downgraded sentencing recommendation is sure to prompt allegations of political interference. In a possible sign of the coming fallout, former Mueller prosecutors Aaron Zelinsky, Jonathan Kravis, Adam Jed, and Michael Marando have withdrawn from the Stone case. Zelinsky and Kravis resigned from their positions as special assistant U.S. attorney and assistant U.S. attorney in D.C., respectively.
