DC’s Resigned Federal Prosecutor Faced Political Heat From Case Of Trump Foe McCabe

In the run-up to former U.S. Attorney for the District Columbia Jessie Liu’s resignation from the Trump administration earlier this month, she was under intense political pressure, according to new reports. Now, Liu is beginning to look like another casualty in President Donald Trump’s war on supposedly “disloyal” officials. Multiple reports paint a picture of a prosecutor stuck between politics and the law. Liu was even reportedly been targeted by an effort spearheaded by Ginni Thomas, the c...

Roger Stone Sentenced To 40 Months In Prison

DOJ Attorney Walks Back Bill Barr’s Walk Back Of Stone Sentencing Memo

What the Justice Department said inside the courtroom Thursday at Stone’s sentencing hearing was in stark contrast with the chaos that’s swirled around the case outside the courthouse — chaos that’s been egged on by both President Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr. John Crabb  — the deputy chief of the D.C. U.S. Attorney’s office criminal division who jumped into the case after the trial team abruptly resigned last week — essentially backed the original sentencing proposal filed by the tri...

WH Denies That Trump Is Ignoring Barr’s Plea With Incessant Tweets

Where Things Stand: Barr’s Saving Face

Three prominent news outlets reported this morning, citing unnamed administration officials, that the attorney general is mulling resigning over President Trump’s tweets about the Roger Stone case. The Justice Department outright denied these claims, but it’s not the first time Barr has been publicly distanced from the President — whether by his own volition or not — since his department suddenly reversed its sentencing recommendation for Stone just hours after Trump tweeted criticism of the ...

Bill Barr got it right on Roger Stone

GOP Leaders Contort Themselves To Support Barr Without Offending Trump

A trio of Republican leaders expressed excessive support for Attorney General Bill Barr Tuesday, but took pains to lavish praise on President Donald Trump as well to avoid the appearance of cosigning Barr’s recent criticism of the President. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-SC) trumpeted Barr’s “highest character and unquestionable integrity” in a statement, vilifying “outside groups” who ...

Federal Prosecutor In NY Is DOJ’s New Point Man For Ukraine Matters

The top federal cop in the Eastern District of New York is the Justice Department’s new point man on all things Ukraine — a twist following the President’s recent effort to press Ukraine for political dirt. The U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of New York, Richard Donoghue, will assist in coordinating “several open matters” being handled by U.S. Attorneys and other DOJ officials “that in some way potentially relate to Ukraine,” Assistant Attorney General Stephen E. Boyd wrote to House J...

Trump Continues To Interfere In Stone Case With Tweets About Judge

President Donald Trump on Tuesday took the extraordinary step, once again, of injecting himself into the criminal case of his friend and confidante Roger Stone. In a series of tweets Tuesday morning just hours before a telephone conference in Stone’s case, Trump roughly quoted the Fox News analyst Andrew Napolitano, who said on “Fox & Friends” this morning that “I think almost any judge in the country would order a new trial.” “Judge Jackson now has a request for a new trial based on the una...

Bush, wrote in ...
