Barr again under fire for politicization of DOJ after prosecutor’s explosive testimony

05:10

U.S. attorney Aaron Zelinsky, who prosecuted charges against Trump aide Roger Stone, testified before the House Judiciary Committee that the Justice Department pushed to get Stone a lighter sentence. Zelinsky said his boss, who was appointed to the job by Attorney General Bill Barr, was pressured by “the highest levels of Justice to cut Stone a break.” The committee is preparing to subpoena Barr’s testimony, and many legal watchers are eager for him to explain what sounds like an inappropriate display of favor toward President Trump’s friends.
