Two Mueller Prosecutors Quit After AG Barr Overrules Them On Roger Stone’s Sentence

Two federal prosecutors in the criminal case against Roger Stone just quit the case after AG Barr and the DOJ overruled them in the Roger Stone case.

One prosecutor, Jonathon Kravis, quit the Department of Justice while the second goon of Mueller also quit the Stone case but kept his job with the DOJ.

It was a typical case of prosecutorial overreach, that added years to the sentence over a bogus threat Rogar Stone made to a friend who did not even consider it a threat.

President Trump, of course, could just pardon Roger Stone right now or commute his sentence.

CNBC reported that Jonathan Kravis, who delivered the closing argument at Stone’s trial last fall, resigned as an assistant U.S. Attorney, according to a court filing Tuesday in Washington, D.C., federal court.

Another prosecutor, Aaron Zelinsky, also withdrew from Stone’s case, and resigned as a special assistant in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington, D.C.

Kravis and Zelinsky were among the four prosecutors who signed the controversial sentencing recommendation for Stone that has come under attack both from the Justice Department and from Trump for being too harsh.

Those prosecutors told Judge Amy Berman Jackson in that filing that Stone should get a prison term of between seven and nine years when he is sentenced Feb. 20 for crimes related to lying to Congress about his contacts with WikiLeaks during the 2016 presidential election and his efforts to get an associate, comedian Randy Credico, to cover for his lies.

Prosecutors said their proposed sentence mirrors the sentence suggested federal sentencing guidelines, which are calculated according to a formula that takes into account the severity of the crime, the type of conduct involved, and a defendant’s prior criminal history.
