Attorney General under fire Attorney General under fireNew questions tinnitus the justice department now opens a new probe into the handling of the Michael Flynn case when the president earliest advisors of course, comes amid criticism. The president applied pressure on the justice department in the Rodger Stone case v attorney-general, denying that ABC news interview and turn around tonight. With these new developments from the White House attorney general Bill bar already accused of doing a favor for President Trump. By recommending a lighter sentence for the president’s friend, Rodger Stone and tonight we’ve learned is ordered a review of the case of another closed Trump Ally.
The president’s First National Security adviser Michael Flynn, well, I feel bad. The news comes just a day after the Attorney General in an extraordinary rebuke, told president it’s time to stop tweeting about Department of Justice Criminal Case, while he’s never directly intervened. In the case, this doesn’t mean that I do not have as president the legal right to do so I, but I have so far chosen not to so far in his interview with ABC News, is attorney general Bill. Barr warned that Trump trailing about specific cases saying who should or should not be investigated and prosecuted is undermining bars, ability and the rule of law to have public statements and tweets made about the department about people in the department.
Are our men and women hear about cases pending in the department at about Judges before whom we have cases make it impossible for me to do my job? One frequent Trump Target former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, under investigation for 2 years for legend, lying to investigators, about a leak to the media Trump tweeting. That McCabe was part of an illegal in treasonous plot, ripping into him again that again, while he was being investigated, I think it’s a disaster and what he was trying to do was terrible.
Today, the prosecutors in the case announce that McCabe will not face any charges in McCabe fired back. It is an absolute disgrace that they took two years and put my family through this experience for 2 years before they finally drew the obvious conclusion and one they could have drawn a long long time ago. Federal judge looking at the court does something that happens in a Banana Republic and sang. I don’t think people like the fact that you got somebody at the top basically tried to dictate whether somebody should be prosecuted at the White House in case, but about the prosecution of Michael Flynn as well.
I want to get back to you reported at the top. There be attorney general’s decision to review that case is now raising new questions of potentially improper influence. Tonight visor he pleaded guilty to lying to investigators. You tried to reverse that plea, accuse prosecuted misconduct that went nowhere and now the Attorney General new prosecutors will step in to look at that case Trump and bar both say they don’t talk about these cases. They insist. There’S no undue influence for looks like there might not need to be.
William Barr said tweets by President Donald Trump make it “impossible for me to do my job.”
