Obama’s ethics director and others say Trump is corrupting Department of Justice

President Donald Trump is being accused of corrupting the Department of Justice by intervening in the sentencing of Roger Stone, who was convicted of lying to protect Trump. Walter Shaub, who was ethics director under Obama has tweeted that Trump is ’wielding the Justice Department as a shield for friends and a sword for political rivals.’ Four career prosecutors have left the case in protest.

Less than 4 years ago it was a major scandal that AG Lynch met President Clinton to chat. Now President Trump is publicly directing AG Barr on everything “justice” does. Love how you guys make this about Obama and partisanship when this is really about rule of law. The 4 prosecutors followed DOJ guidelines on the sentencing and Roger Stone LIED TO CONGRESS and OBSTRUCTED JUSTICE, things he was found guilty for with evidence. You Trump Cultists are threats to democracy and rule of law with your hyper partisanship.
