Skip to comments.Second prosecutor quits Roger Stone case after sentencing reversal
Posted on 02/11/2020 1:24:12 PM PST by tcrlaf
A second Department of Justice (DOJ) prosecutor who recommended Roger Stone be sentenced to seven to nine years in prison left the case Tuesday after reports that officials would seek to reduce the sentencing request.
In a one-sentence filing to the court, lawyer Jonathan Kravis announced his resignation as an assistant U.S. attorney and therefore no longer represents the government in the case. Kravis's announcement came shortly after a similar withdrawal by prosecutor Aaron Zelinsky.
Both attorneys were involved in providing the initial sentencing guidance, which was sharply criticized by President Trump, raising questions about potential political interference in the sentencing of Stone. Stone was found guilty of lying to Congress and witness tampering.

How many prosecutors did they need?
That Zelinsky was on this case to begin with is extraordinary given these incredible conflicts of interest - Mueller AND Rosenstein!

Barr going outside Washington for more honest appraisal.
That’s called Draining The Swamp. Next!
Why are these prosecutors obsessed with making sure this man dies in prison for what are effectively process crimes based on a hoax investigation?
Deep-state rats deserting the sinking ship...
Adios Jonathan Kravis!
Good luck, Jonathan, finding another job to get paid for sending innocent Trump supporters to jail.
Maybe Comey or some of his thugs can help you find a job.
RATs run for cover when the lights are turned on.
He never should have been tried in the first place, especially by a jury drawn from a pool that’s overwhelmingly biased against Republicans. Trump haters don’t care about evidence.
I hope this gets overturned on appeal
These asshats were praying that impeachment would be on their side. Now they are running for cover. They should be the ones in prison.
Kravis clerked for Judge Merrick Garland and for Justice Stephen Breyer. Worked for Mueller’s hit squad.
Aaron Zelinsky clerked for Justices John Paul Stevens (Ret.) and Anthony Kennedy. Worked for Rosenstein and Mueller’s hit squad.
That both of these guys appear (from their names) to be Jewish by birth (or at least by heritage), is of great shame to me. I am sick and tired of being associated with all of these Left wing scumbags, just because of some remote common ancestor(s). These people disgust me - they are wasting their intelligence serving an evil ideology.
He heard North Korea was hiring.
Kravis literally was one of Obama’s White House lawyers. That
he is/was prosecuting Stone is totally insane. It seems The Resistance (TM) has/had near total control of the “Trump” DOJ.
Like him or hate him he never deserved a freaking swat team,character assassinated, jailed and bankrupted by the government.
