Prosecutors Set to Demand Seven to Nine Years in Prison For Roger Stone's Process Crimes;
DOJ Steps In

The lawyers who have picked up the torch from Mueller wanted seven to nine years incarceration for Roger Stone, while Comey and McCabe remain not even charged with a crime.

The DOJ has finally stepped in.

The Department of Justice is preparing to change its sentencing recommendation for Roger Stone after top brass were "shocked" at the stiff prison term initially being sought, according to a senior DOJ official.

“The Department was shocked to see the sentencing recommendation in the filing in the stone case last night,” the official told Fox News. “The sentencing recommendation was not what had been briefed to the Department.”

In documents filed on Monday evening, prosecutors from the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Washington recommended Stone serve 87 to 108 months after being convicted of lying to Congress and witness tampering. The department is now expected to scale that back.

“The Department finds seven to nine years extreme, excessive and grossly disproportionate to Mr. Stone’s offenses,” the source told Fox News, adding that the DOJ will clarify its position on sentencing later Tuesday.

Meanwhile, the judge in the Flynn case has postponed the sentencing hearing indefinitely because the prosecutors asked for extensions to their deadlines to respond to Flynn's filings.


The move by Judge Emmet Sullivan comes a day after federal prosecutors filed a rare Sunday motion to delay a number of approaching deadlines that would ultimately make Flynn’s Feb. 27 sentencing unlikely. The delay also comes weeks after Flynn withdrew his guilty plea.

In their filing, prosecutors argued that Flynn’s former attorneys should testify after he claimed to have received ineffective assistance from them. Flynn had previously hired the premier D.C. law firm, Covington & Burling. Federal lawyers also asked the judge to order that Flynn has his attorney-client privileges in his communications with Covington & Burling waived.

39 Perfect thread. Now hopefully someone will explain how Stone went before Congress, made statements, then:

1. who found (as a legal term) that he lied
2. who (I don't know what the next step is) filed charges of lying to Congress
3. (again don't know next step) took it up as a matter for the courts (exactly which courts?)
4. actually brought the charges forward in a trial

Then explain where this has stopped in the legal process of finding that say Comey lied to Congress.

69 Stone's witness tampering charges are based on a bunch of flaky text messages between stone and another flaky/shady character, Randy Credico, who testified against him.

As far as I can tell, both of them are blowhards who have spent their careers talking shit about everything they've ever been involved with, and who no court should ever have believed on anything. I think Roger Stone is a loud mouthed idiot who can't stop talking, not even to protect himself, but that what he did wasn't worthy of any jail time.

119 hard to know what Stone's real role is, since he also spent time in Ukraine Zone and knew Manafort. It is all kinda fuzzy, but only those on Team Trump, or advocating for Trump, faced the full wrath of the Mueller Coup.


A big part of the Stone "crime" was some alleged inside knowledge about Assange, which seems to all be just what everyone else knew. And the Assange side of the Seth Rich story, and the fake story that the evidence came from Russia (not Seth) ... is also part of why they badly needed to silence Stone.


So Stone got the Obama judge to gag order him, while the Coup Plotters had 24/7 propaganda rights on the MSM. Now they want to lock him away forever, as they did to Assange, Manafort, Epstein, etc. DoJ finally "intervening" seems like too little too late ... the Coup continues.

The claim, per my understanding, is that Trump told Manafort to ask a subordinate to go to Stone to get the Wikileaks E-Mails from the DNC to use it for the campaign.

The problem is that:
1) The E-Mails were already public. The press claims that this was an attempt to front-run the document dump, but the dates don't line up.
2) It's patently insane. Why would Trump ask a guy to ask a guy to ask another guy to get information from another guy? It's laughable, especially in a small campaign with a lot of a delegation of powers.

And I thought that the whole Pentagon Papers decision was something about no one is criminally liable for handling or disseminating stolen secrets unless they were part of the initial conspiracy to steal them (unless bound by some other confidentiality law).

If Stone goes to jail on this half the newsrooms in the country should be carted off.

179 135 I know several lawyers IRL, and they all pretty much seem to have the philosophical outlook that their ability to make an argument for something makes them right about it. Gabe seems exactly the same way.

Seems like there's something very unhealthy about going to school and getting a lot of debt to formally make arguments for a living, and how it can psychologically condition you into believing every argument you make.

I think Alexthechick and Cochran have both admitted to something similar to this behavior on the Drift Compatible Podcast (returning this week!) and have called it something like going into lawyer mode. Of course neither of them actually work as lawyers and it's probably a recognition of a decent legal mind when they realize that they do engage in that kind of stuff.

The correct answer is walking around money. Steyer is showering it on SC ministers and their flocks along with his ads. He is there basically as a spoiler which makes me think that the DNC wants to fix the race between the anti-Sanders and Sanders via a splitting strategy.

Steyer will get his money back via green dreams legislation for playing his role just as Bernie got a house from the 2016 race.

A modern update of the Producers would be to change it from a play on Broadway to a political race for president.

The very first thing that a student learns upon entering law school is (and always remember this):

For every argument, there is a counter-argument. It need not have merit, it need not be logical, it may be fallacious, founded in untruth and intentional misrepresentation, but it must be made.

I have some number of friends who are lawyers. They all share one quality, at the drop of a hat, they will shift into lawyer mode. Even in the most casual of conversations. I have to remind them that they are making a lawyer's argument, rather having a discussion.

Biden had been planning since December to lose Iowa and NH (to different winners) but then backstop his campaign with back to back wins in NV and SC.

By going straight to SC he is telling NV he doesn't need them.

And he will lose there, which means he will have 3 losses on the board going into SC.

And Trump tweeting about the injustice here might be a new thing - does the DOJ team not see good indications Stone will be pardoned? Would think this would apply to the Flynn team as well.

But the Flynn case - again, from its first breath to this week - needs to be autopsied and revealed in detail, every outrageous bit. Does Barr *really* want to repair DOJ and begin to try and regain some respect for it? I mean, more than Wray appears to (based on his public statements and attitude)?

341 >>Mayor Buttgiggy wants this entire nation to be Amsterdam.


Keep the populace drugged up while he finishes what Obama started. . . For example, look at his Domestic Policy Director:

The presidential campaign of former South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg
has taken the unusual step of sending its national policy director,
Sonal Shah, on the road. . .
Shah's background positions her well
to connect with the high-net-worth individuals within the Democratic
Party that are powering Buttigieg's bid and are concerned about income
inequality, climate change, health disparities, or other social
inequities. While she was a top official at both Goldman Sachs and
Google before joining the Obama administration --- spanning the two
dominant elements of the corporate wing of the party, Wall Street and
Silicon Valley --- she worked in the divisions of those firms publicly
dedicated to doing social good. At Goldman, she designed environmental
strategy. At Google, she did global development. More recently, she
became founding executive director of the Beeck Center for Social Impact and Innovation.

But as I said, I assume all these garbage people on both the Flynn and Stone cases have to realize that the pardon weapon is likely to be deployed in each case. Amazing that they persist (though in the Flynn case there appears to be a bit of feet-shuffling and mumbling in a backward direction).

But I don't see how Barr could accept what we already know about the Flynn case (FBI prosecution behavior/performance), leave alone the conflict aspects the defense is pursuing now.

441 387,
The problem for an institutionalist like Barr is how do you unscramble the omelet composed of bad eggs and good eggs? I think that Barr's approach is simply to wait them out, moving personnel around, and tidying up the crime scene.

An institutionalist believes that the institutions like the FBI and DOJ are basically good but with merely some bad people that need to be removed from power.

Thus, the risks to an institutionalist of widespread overturning of convictions and prosecutions due to airing FBI and DOJ due to misconduct is not worth that risk. My guess is that Trump replaces Barr and Wray after the elections in 2020 if he wins depending on control of the Senate. Right now, the corrupt folks in the Senate are more or less keeping fixing the problem at bay--see Chairman of Senate Judiciary Lindsay for example.

Posted by: whig at February 11, 2020 01:07 PM (EUDB2)

442 One of the FBI reforms/punishments should be prohibiting them from using 302s (interview summaries) as evidence. Make the FBI record all their interviews. No more taking the agent's word for it.

456 OT - a case I'm following, that no one else is, certainly not the MSM (what a shocka!) is the Avenatti trial, in the Nike extortion case. Prosecution laid out a good case, Avenatti demanded that the Judge strictly limit the content of any questions asked of him on the stand - Judge refused. So Avenatti has refused to testify at all in his own defense. (a defendant always has the right to choose that, although it is usually a bad move) Closing arguments should come today. I don't think it looks good for Avenatti.

and this isn't even the big trial, this is just the warmup.

472 438 rhomboid, I think that Barr is hiding massive misconduct by the FBI and DOJ using NSA intercepts as predicates to opening investigations. I base this on things like the abuse of Stinger cell phone intercepts and the merging of CIA/FBI honeytrap assets for example.

We are going to have to reduce the FBI into a regular law enforcement agency and return foreign intelligence to the military only. Perhaps, we should also create a separate counterintelligence civilian agency with no criminal investigatory powers that would be required to go through the DOJ for referral for criminal prosecutions.

If the military was involved in misconduct of surveillance, the UCMJ offers an excellent way to remedy this situation as opposed to civil justice as attorneys, judges, and the jury can be required to have security clearances, closed sessions involving sensitive programs can be closed, etc.

Cohen tried, belatedly, and Papadapoulos was too far from the flagpole to be useful beyond being an excuse to start an investigation. No, Weissman needed an insider who could finger the Man to save his own ass, and didn't get it. Stone is just collateral damage in a failed prosecution strategy.

485 The whole Roger Stone sentencing clusterf*ck was a set up of Main Justice by the Mueller-affiliated prosecutors. The line prosecutors told Main Justice they would recommend much lighter sentencing, then they filed a sentencing recommendation with the harshest penalty allowable under the guidelines and explicitly called for making Stone an example. They sandbagged their bosses. The contemporaneous resignations was most likely part of the strategy from the very beginning. If Main Justice did nothing after being lied to, then these Deep State creeps would know they were still in charge. If Main Justice intervened, then they'd "resign in protest."
