The Republican-controlled Senate voted last Wednesday to acquit President Donald Trump on both articles of impeachment.
Less than a week after Democrats impeachment hoax imploded, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is already leveling new charges against the president.
Pelosi took to Twitter on Tuesday night to accuse Trump of engaging in “political interference in the sentencing of Roger Stone and called for an investigation into the Department of Justice.
Pelosi also commended the four prosecutors who quit Stone's case Tuesday after the DOJ asked for a lighter sentence than what they had recommended.
“By tweet @realDonaldTrump engaged in political interference in the sentencing of Roger Stone,” she wrote. “It is outrageous that DOJ has deeply damaged the rule of law by withdrawing its recommendation. Stepping down of prosecutors should be commended & actions of DOJ should be investigated.”
Pelosi was originally referring to Trump quoting reporters’ tweets calling it "very unfair," a "miscarriage of justice" and a "ridiculous 9 year sentence recommendation."
However, less than 10 minutes after Pelosi’s tweet was sent, Trump sent a tweet attacking the prosecutors.
Trump tweeted, “Who are the four prosecutors (Mueller people?) who cut and ran after being exposed for recommending a ridiculous 9 year prison sentence to a man that got caught up in an investigation that was illegal, the Mueller Scam, and shouldn’t ever even have started? 13 Angry Democrats?”
Stone was convicted in November of seven counts of obstructing and lying to Congress and witness tampering related to his efforts to provide the Trump campaign inside information about WikiLeaks in 2016.
Prosecutors outrageously recommended seven to nine years in prison as punishment.
But as noted by The Federalist, Mueller's allies may have lied to the DOJ:
Fox News reported earlier today that DOJ was blindsided by the formal recommendation from operatives tapped by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller that Stone be sentenced to up to nine years in prison. A source told Fox that the sentence recommendation was “extreme, excessive, and grossly disproportionate” to Stone’s crimes.
Sources told The Federalist that Timothy Shea, who was recently appointed to take over as the top federal prosecutor in D.C. earlier this month, was bullied into agreeing to the sentence recommendation by Adam Jed and Aaron Zelinsky, who were originally tapped by Mueller to investigate whether Donald Trump treasonously colluded with the Russian government to steal the 2016 election from Hillary Clinton.
DOJ has not announced whether it will seek legal or ethical sanctions against any of the attorneys who allegedly lied to the department about their rogue sentencing scheme against Stone.
But many can see that Mueller's allies are trying to get payback after their Russia investigation collapsed and found no evidence of Trump-Russia collusion.
