UPDATE: Three Mueller prosecutors abruptly withdraw from Roger Stone case
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by WASHINGTONEXAMINER.COM:
All four prosecutors in the Roger Stone case withdrew from their roles after the Justice Department reversed course in seeking a lengthy prison sentence for the Republican operative.
The officials, three of whom were members of special counsel Robert Mueller’s team investigating a possible criminal conspiracy between the Trump campaign and Russia, left after President Trump condemned the original sentencing recommendation of up to nine years in prison.
The article goes on to state the following:
The exodus began with a brief court filing on Tuesday afternoon with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia, showing Aaron Zelinsky resigned “effective immediately” from his appointment as a special assistant U.S. attorney in D.C. working on the Stone case. Zelinsky is an assistant federal prosecutor from Maryland who was on loan in D.C. with Mueller’s team.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Kravis then resigned as an assistant U.S. attorney.
Adam Jed, a special assistant U.S. attorney, then withdrew from the case, but apparently did not resign from the Justice Department.
Kravis and Jed were also former Mueller prosecutors.
Michael Marando, an assistant U.S. attorney with the D.C. office, also filed a notice of withdrawal from the Stone case. He was not part of Mueller’s team.
All four prosecutors of Trump friend/adviser Roger Stone — Jonathan Kravis, Michael Marando, Aaron Zelinsky and Adam C. Jed — have now resigned in the wake of President Trump criticizing their sentencing recommendation, and DOJ acquiescing.
