OPINION| Mark Sidney| From where I sit, I think it is pretty obvious that the dirty DS and their Democrat henchmen just deployed their new trap for President Trump.
There are reports that the crooked, politically motivated DS DOJ prosecutors mislead the DOJ brass about what sentencing they were going to ask the court for in the Roger Stone trial.
The Federalist reported:
‘Prosecutors in charge of the federal case against Roger Stone may have lied to the Department of Justice about their lengthy prison sentence recommendation for Stone, according to a new report.
Fox News reported earlier today that DOJ was blindsided by the formal recommendation from operatives tapped by former Special Counsel Robert Mueller that Stone be sentenced to up to nine years in prison. A source told Fox that the sentence recommendation was “extreme, excessive, and grossly disproportionate” to Stone’s crimes.
“The Department was shocked to see the sentencing recommendation in the filing in the Stone case last night,” the DOJ official reportedly told Fox. “The sentencing recommendation was not what had been briefed to the Department.”
Now, if this is the case, and I think it makes perfect sense that it would be, the plot to initiate impeachment 2.0 becomes pretty clear, IMHO.
Here is what I think happened:
-Mueller’s angry Democrats mislead the DOJ about the sentence they were going to request from the court for Trump’s long time friend.
-Next the coup catalysts go to the court and ask for an absurd 9 years in prison for, what seems to me to be, absurd trumped up process crimes, knowing full well that Trump will not abide this.
-Trump Tweets negative things about the DOJ and the Judge.
-Then AG Barr acts. The DS hacks know that AG Barr is in charge and they do not have their compromised hatchet men running the show, and because of this the law matters once again, they likely figured that Barr would correct the mistake and revise the sentencing request.
-Now Trump has Tweets at the bad actors … before Barr can correct the recommendation. So the prosecutors quit and try to make it sound like they are the innocent patriots and at the same time insinuate that Trump is ordering Barr around, running the DOJ as his own apparatus to serve his friends.
-Que Pelosi. This then gives Ol Iron Liver (Nancy Pelosi), Nadler and the rest of the Democrats the chance to launch an investigation and keep Trump on his heels while moving towards a second impeachment.
There is just one catch, their story is a lie, and AG Barr is calling them on their BS.
The Gateway Pundit is reporting:
‘US Attorney General Bill Barr said in an interview with ABC’s Pierre Thomas that President Trump has never asked him to do anything in a criminal case.
Barr also said Trump should stop tweeting about the DOJ because it makes his job “impossible” given the noise and controversy it stirs up in the media.
“The president has never asked me to do anything in a criminal case”—but should stop tweeting about the DOJ because his tweets “make it impossible for me to do my job,” Barr said.
Bill Barr is referring to President Trump’s tweetstorm slamming the excessive sentencing in Roger Stone’s case.
President Trump also went after Judge Amy Berman Jackson and unleashed on the four prosecutors who abused Roger Stone.
“I won’t be bullied by anybody…whether it’s Congress, newspapers, editorial boards or the president,” he said. I’m going to do what I think is right.”’
“I’m not going to be bullied or influenced by anybody….whether it’s Congress, newspaper editorial boards, or the president,” Bill Barr tells @ABC News.

I have to say Barr is right, if I were Trump I would be a little more cautious about the types of things I Tweet about. Do not get me wrong, I think Twitter is Trump’s most important tool, but just like a gun, tools can kill you if used incorrectly.
Now, this is just my view, Trump may well have a plan and the Dems may just have fallen into his trap, I do not know, and time will tell.
I will admit that Trump is clearly much smarter than I am, as I sit here writing this oped while he runs the free world. Hopefully he has this all mapped out and this too backfires in the Dem’s faces … I have a feeling it will as everything seems to these days.
