Liberals are having a complete freak out over Attorney General William Barr's recent decision regarding Roger Stone's case. That, and they're not happy with President Trump's criticism over the judge's proposed sentence for Stone.
They're in such a panic that a group of federal judges decided to hold an "emergency meeting" on earlier this week to talk about what should be done.
The meeting was called to address their concerns about the Justice Department's intervention and President Donald Trump's tweets in politically sensitive cases, the group’s president said Monday.
Philadelphia U.S. District Judge Cynthia Rufe, who heads the independent Federal Judges Association, said the group “could not wait” until its spring conference to weigh in on a deepening crisis that has enveloped the Justice Department and Attorney General William Barr.
“There are plenty of issues that we are concerned about,” Rufe told USA TODAY. “We’ll talk all of this through.”
…Rufe said the judges’ association is “not inclined to get involved with an ongoing case,” but she voiced strong support for Jackson.
“I am not concerned with how a particular judge will rule,” Rufe said, praising Jackson’s reputation. “We are supportive of any federal judge who does what is required.”
Rufe said the group has not decided how it will report the result of its meeting, if at all. “We just could not …wait until April to discuss matters of this importance,” she said.
After Trump took Jackson to task on Twitter last week, another jurist – District of Columbia Chief U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell – appeared to rally to Jackson’s side.
“The Judges of this Court base their sentencing decisions on careful consideration of the actual record in the case before them; the applicable sentencing guidelines and statutory factors; the submissions of the parties, the Probation Office and victims; and their own judgment and experience,” Howell said in a written statement. “Public criticism or pressure is not a factor.”
According to the most recent numbers, over 2,000 justice department officials have signed a petition asking for AG Barr to resign from his position, most of them being former prosecutors and probably all Democrats.
I'm confident that there is a really good reason that we just don't about yet, because these guys aren't just shooting first and asking questions later. They're getting all their ducks in a row and not jumping the gun like House Democrats did when they impeached President Trump.
