Neither the president nor the attorney general have done a damn thing wrong

Neither the president nor the attorney general have done a damn thing wrong. And the sentencing isn’t the right focus now in the Stone case, it is whether the trial was corrupted and whether Stone received a fair trial. If this story about the foreman is accurate, the federal judge should be appalled at what took place in her courtroom and she has an obligation to determine what exactly took place in her courtroom. She should direct the DOJ to undertake an immediate and quick (time deadline) investigation into the foreman’s behavior (from her selection to her tweeting). And if you want to see interference by outside third parties and politicians in a judicial matter, listen to what Pelosi, Schumer, virtually every Democrat, and most in the media are demanding: that Main Justice not manage line prosecutors when the latter act in ways that are widely criticized as excessive and unjust. And their constant demands for the attorney general’s impeachment or resignation are intended to intimidate him and prevent him from acting responsibly.
