GOP senators say Trump shouldn't weigh in on pending sentences
By Jordain Carney - 02/12/20 01:03 PM EST

Some Republican senators said on Wednesday that President Trump shouldn't weigh in on pending sentences after he publicly criticized an initial recommendation from the Department of Justice (DOJ) in the case of Roger Stone.

The comments come as senators are facing an onslaught of questions over DOJ's decision to lower its sentencing recommendation for Stone, a Trump associate, overriding front-line prosecutors.

"I don't like this chain of events where you have a ... proceeding, a sentencing, a recommended sentence, the president weighs in and all of the sudden Justice comes back, says 'change the deal.' I think most people would look at that and say 'hmm, that just doesn't look right.' And I think they're right," Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) told reporters.
 
Murkowski added while she didn’t “think the president should be determining what the sentences are,” she also didn’t expect that he would make the ultimate decision. Stone’s prison sentence will be decided by an Obama-appointed federal judge.

Sen. Susan Collins (R-Maine) told reporters that Trump "should not have gotten involved."

A suggestion, then. When Susan Collins is president, then she can have the option to not get involved.

I didn't care when Obama would stick his nose in stuff that he had no business doing... Like when George Michael Zimmerman killed (defended himself against) the thug black kid that attacked in Florida. It taints juries... it makes it hard to get judges that are fair. The MSM didn't care then...

Murkowski and Collins.
The usual suspects.
Did Mittens chime in with his condemnation yet...?

Their advice is noted. 66minnie
We need to re-coin the expression, "Press Bias" to "Media Bigotry."
I will NOT comply.

Daddy Trump to the rescue.
