Pelosi Ready to Investigate Trump Again, This Time for Stone Scandal

This certainly isn’t going to sit well with American voters, who’ve already begun to grow impatient with their public servants.

Roger Stone is a character, that’s for sure, and the moments in which he appears in the national consciousness are often entertaining.

Recently, the political provocateur has been involved in a legal battle stemming from the RussiaGate conspiracy theory investigation.  Stone has been convicted of lying to Congress during that investigation, and is currently about two weeks away from his sentencing.

When President Trump learned that his longtime pal was facing up to nine years in prison for the offense, the Commander in Chief tweeted his disapproval of the sentencing suggestion.  The next thing you know, the DOJ was stepping in to adjust it.

This has the Democrats furious, predictably, and perhaps even a little trigger-happy for an investigation.

From Nancy Pelosi’s Thursday press conference:

Pelosi said, “We also saw the president this week demonstrate, once again, that he does have — has no respect for the rule of law. His assault on the rule of law by engaging in political interference in the sentencing of his associate, Roger Stone…this is an abuse of power that the president is again trying to manipulate federal law enforcement to serve his political interests.”

Pelosi further stated that Attorney General William Barr “has deeply damaged the rule of law by withdrawing the DOJ’s sentencing recommendation, the act of interference in Trump’s retribution against the lead attorney in the Stone case. … This all must be investigated.”

Of course, the American people have long complained that their congressional leaders were spending too much time on these sorts of investigations.  This certainly won’t sit well with the nation at large.
