Top Roger Stone prosecutor slams Barr for influencing cases against Trump allies

The top prosecutor of Roger Stone -- who quit the Justice Department when his superiors overruled his team's work on the case before Stone's sentencing -- slammed Attorney General William Barr for influencing cases against President Donald Trump's friends and accused him of undermining the integrity of the department, in a Washington Post op-ed published Monday.

Jonathan Kravis and the other federal prosecutors who quit the Stone case had not spoken publicly about it, and the op-ed breaks Kravis' silence on why he left and how he thought Barr had handled the case.

It adds to a growing backlash against Barr's moves in the cases from top former officials; a day earlier, former Justice Department national security chief Mary McCord also condemned Barr in a New York Times op-ed.

"In both cases, the department undercut the work of career employees to protect an ally of the president, an abdication of the commitment to equal justice under the law," Kravis wrote. "Prosecutors must make decisions based on facts and law, not on the defendant's political connections. When the department takes steps that it would never take in any other case to protect an ally of the president, it betrays this principle."

1. Thank you Jonathan for speaking out

It looks like you are the only one with the integrity to state the truth.
