Trump also said this week that he did not ask the Justice Department to ask for a lesser sentence for Stone. 

 

Democrats have seized on Trump’s comments, and the Justice Department’s actions, arguing that it shows political interference within DOJ to help a Trump associate. 

 

The resulting fallout created a days-long headache for Republicans, some of whom publicly urged the president to refrain from weighing in on potential sentences. 

 

 

“I think the president would be better served by never commenting on a pending federal investigations,” she said.

Trump tweeted about the initial sentence recommendation on Tuesday calling it “horrible and very unfair situation.”

“The real crimes were on the other side, as nothing happens to them. Cannot allow this miscarriage of justice!” Trump tweeted. 

McConnell was asked on Tuesday during a weekly press conference if he was concerned about favoritism, but told reporters that he didn’t “have an opinion on that.”
