The strangest part of this whole thing is that Judge Amy Berman Jackson is not beholden to the recommendation. She can give Stone 9+ years if she wants. What will probably happen: - Prosecutors recommend 9 years. - DOJ says they are changing recommendation. - Prosecutors resign. (<— we are here) - DOJ recommends no jail and a pony. - Judge gives 9 years. - Trump issues a pardon, citing DOJ's recommendation, and buys Roger Stone a pony. - The pony dies because it was a Trump-brand Pony.

Of course, past the point of (< -- we are here ) is a guess. But one thing is for certain, the GOP won’t give two 💩s

“It was not immediately clear what prompted the reversal. But it is exceedingly rare, particularly in a high-profile case like Stone’s, for the Justice Department to reverse its own prosecutors on a sentencing recommendation. Normally, United States attorneys have wide latitude to recommend sentences on cases that they prosecuted.”

If a criminal commits a crime in support of Trump, is it still a crime?

He was found guilty of a crime. The DOJ is sending a message that if you help Trump or are in his “favor” then you can expect leniency.

I agree this sounds sketchy but wouldn't you at least review your decision if your boss said he thought you needed to look at it again. The results may not change but if your boss suggests you review a deliverable again, the smart move is to review it again.

We can’t put Stone in jail or we will never find out about Epstein, or Bill Gate, or Bill Clinton.

A pardon is actually tricky for trump. Accepting a pardon waives your 5th amendment right against self incrimination, so you can be forced to provide testimony about your crimes and name names. I don't expect any pardons for Flynn, Cohen, Stone, Manafort, or Papadopoulos. They know too much.
