Donald Trump Accuses Robert Mueller of Lying to Congress
“Congratulations to Attorney General Bill Barr for taking charge of a case that was totally out of control and perhaps should not have even been brought,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “Evidence now clearly shows that the Mueller Scam was improperly brought & tainted.”
In November, Stone was found guilty on seven counts including obstruction, witness tampering, and lying to Congress.
Trump expressed outrage after learning that the Justice Department prosecutor recommended seven to nine years of prison for Stone.
The Justice Department submitted a new sentencing recommendation on Tuesday for 87 to 108 months, which overruled the prosecutors in the case.
The four prosecutors withdrew from the Stone case in protest.
