In a sign of fallout over the Justice Department’s decision to downgrade a sentencing memo for Roger Stone, top Mueller prosecutor Aaron Zelinsky filed a notice withdrawing from the case this afternoon.
Meanwhile, MSNBC reports another Roger Stone prosecutor — Jonathan Kravis — “has resigned as an Assistant United States Attorney and therefore no longer represents the government in this case.”
And Vox reports that Adam Jed becomes the third Stone prosecutor to withdraw.
NBC News reports that Michael Marando is the fourth prosecutor to resign.
Washington Post: “The department’s decision to overrule frontline prosecutors and the prosecutors’ subsequent moves laid bare the tension — between career prosecutors and department leadership — that has roiled the Stone case in recent days, and it raises fresh concerns about the politicization of Trump’s Justice Department.”Save to Favorites
