Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-Minn.) called on Attorney General Bill Barr to testify in front of the Senate after the Justice Department rejected frontline prosecutors’ recommended sentence for Trump ally Roger Stone.

The Democratic presidential candidate said on CBS’s “Face The Nation” that she is “very glad” Barr will testify in front of the House Judiciary Committee but said she hopes he will speak under oath in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee as well.

The article goes on to state the following:

RELATED — REPORT: US ATTORNEY CAVED TO ‘ULTIMATUM’ BY MUELLER PROSECUTORS IN ROGER STONE CASE, SOURCES CLAIM

The presidential candidate said Barr’s testimony would be “where we’re going to be able to get that answer” on whether President Trump influenced the Justice Department’s instructions for a “far less” sentence for Stone.

“The president is constantly tweeting out different requests of the Justice Department,” Klobuchar continued. “And I think here where you’ve got career prosecutors that made difficult decisions about how to handle this case, they got a conviction, they put their all into it, and then they get undermined on the sentencing.”

    McCabe, a Democrat, admitted that he lied to Congress and he’s not convicted. Stone, a Republican lied to Congress and he’s given a 9 year sentence. Does anybody see a pattern here? Murderers get 13 years, Rapists get 4.2 years and Stone gets 9 years for lying????? RIDICULOUS! I’m not the brightest bulb in the package, but even I can see that’s totally absurd!
