- Attorney general makes unexpected intervention into controversy over Stone case
- Trump criticised for interfering in friend’s sentencing
- Help us cover the critical issues of 2020. Consider making a contribution
Trump is up and about, and giving us his first – relatively restrained – response to William Barr’s criticism last night (see earlier).
To summarise: I didn’t interfere in the Roger Stone case, but I could have if I wanted to, and if I had, that would have been fine. But I didn’t.
“The President has never asked me to do anything in a criminal case.” A.G. Barr This doesn’t mean that I do not have, as President, the legal right to do so, I do, but I have so far chosen not to!
