Judges concerned over US Department of Justice recommending lower sentence to Trump's friend
WASHINGTON: Judges have expressed concern over the alleged interference by the Justice Department in a lawsuit against a close ally of US President Trump.
According to details, the US Justice Department last week recommended a lower sentence to Trump's friend Roger Stone.
Speaking to the media, District Judge Cynthia Roof, head of the Independent Federal Judges Association, said that US judges are concerned about the situation, with individual attacks on judges, the jury cannot wait until the usual meeting.
US media say that the Justice Department recommended a lower sentence after Trump's tweet, with Roger Stone having proven numerous charges, including lying to Congress. It is remembered that the verdict of US President Trump's close ally, Roger Stone, will be heard tomorrow.
Roger Stone also tried to disrupt the Russia investigation against Donald Trump, while Trump called the investigation against Roger Stone a fake one.
Roger Stone, a close old friend of President Trump's, has been charged with obstructing the November 15 congressional investigation, which was related to the 2016 US presidential election. 7 charges proved against Stone. In January 2019, Special Counsel Robert Mueller pleaded guilty to one count of obstruction, five false statements and one for misleading a witness.
