Did Trump Interfere In Roger Stone’s Sentencing?


>>Donald Trump’s involvement with the Roger
Stone sentencing seemed fairly clear yesterday. There have been developments, though, and
so we wanted to catch you up. First of all, I wanna acknowledge that Donald
Trump is saying publicly that he did not get involved with the decision to push for a lighter
sentence for Roger Stone. Here he is.>>Ridiculous that, none of that, no, I didn’t
speak to the justice. I’d be able to do it if I wanted. I have the absolute right to do it. I stay out of things to a degree that people
wouldn’t believe. But I didn’t speak to him. I thought the recommendation was ridiculous. I thought the whole prosecution was ridiculous. And I look at others that haven’t been prosecuted,
or I don’t know where it is now, but when you see that, I thought it was an insult to
our country. And it shouldn’t happen, and we’ll see what
goes on there, but that was a horrible apparition. These are the, I guess the same Mueller people
that put everybody through hell, and I think it’s a disgrace. No, I have not been involved with it at all.>>Yeah, yeah, even the extent that he hasn’t
been involved. No one would believe how little he’s been
involved despite the fact that he’s been tweeting both of them before and after the decision. And first of all, even if he had in his preferences
are obviously clear. Particularly, for the people in charge of
the DOJ that he put there to protect him and his cabal from criminal consequences.>>Department of Justice spokesperson said,
no, we had made the decision to change our mind about the sentencing of Roger stone right
before his tweet. That’s like the, I think it was at 1:30AM,
by the way, the Tweet. Yeah, so like a 1:25AM, now like what do you
think, we just overrule all the career prosecutors, all four of them.>>Mm-hm.>>That thought that this was the right sentence?>>Yeah.>>Right, right, everybody agreed? My god, you guys, you’re not gonna believe
this. Trump just tweeted about it. What a coincidence.>>Which, by the way, I feel this over abundance
of need to be fair to people who have never once deserved it. It’s not like they’re never overruled, it
is a recommendation. Hypothetically, it doesn’t need to be followed. And there are reasons to believe that in some
cases, prosecutors might generally push for sentences that are greater than some other
people who’ve been less involved with the case might prefer. All of that is possible but it exists inside
of a context where Donald Trump’s relationship with Roger Stone and the rest of the people. That he’s either trying to bully them or bully
the people who’ve been investigating them. In some cases, the judges on their cases. All of that is so important and just to be
clear, yesterday we read the Tweet where the original recommendations comes out. And he tweets, it’s unacceptable, it’s crazy,
he can’t do it, obviously, stating his preferences. Although we didn’t know at the time that they’d
already decided to change it, that just wasn’t public yet. And so then, William Barr decides to get involved
and he tweets this. Again, like fully publicly making clear what
it is exactly that he wants. He says congratulations to Attorney General
Bill Barr, for taking charge of a case that was totally out of control and perhaps should
not have even been brought. Evidence now clearly shows that the Muller
scam was improperly brought and tainted. That’s not true. Even Bob Mueller lied to Congress and so they
put out the recommendation 7 to 9 years. He tweets, it’s unacceptable. They decide to lower it, all the people originally
involved resign so Bill Barr takes control. And then Trump congratulates him for not that
they already changed their mind, that theory that’s out there that they want you to believe. He’s saying, no, it was wrong and Bill Barr
came in and stopped it, after I made clear that that’s what I wanted.>>Yeah, but, John, you’ll never believe how
little I was involved.>>Yeah, except for the Tweet.>>You would never believe it. Well, that’s true actually, that’s the first
true thing he said, I won’t believe it.>>Mm-hm, yeah, I have a hard time believing
it actually.>>Now, guys, let’s talk about now the broader
implications. Now that impeachment is over, he thinks there
are no rules at all. And he’s kind of right.>>He’s totally right.>>Yeah, he’s like, I clearly broke the law
when I did the deal, when I asked Ukraine to hold up. And I held up their funding to have them do
a political favor for my campaign. That’s actually, three violations of the law
in there, holding up the funding, asking for a political favor from a foreign country,
and getting something in return. So that’s extortion, campaign finance violations,
and then there’s a separate law about holding up the funding. So I broke the law eight ways to Sunday. And then I told all the Republican senators
shut up and vote, that I’m innocent and don’t even do a real case. Make sure you’re rubbing their face by having
no witnesses at all. Even though there’s someone who is my National
Security Advisor saying please, please, I have information about this case. And the republicans did exactly as I told
him to, so who cares if I break the law on this or anything else? What would they do? They’d go through a whole another impeachment? And what difference would it make? All the Republican senators would acquit me
again. The truest thing he ever said was I could
choose someone on Fifth Avenue and get away with it.>>Yeah, if they thought that their career
depended on me getting away with it. It does and so they let them get away with
it. Another Tweet that was just filled with lies
that I want to acknowledge was this one. There was a Tweet about Amy Berman Jackson,
who was the the judge in some of these cases. And he tweeted, is this the judge that put
Paul Manafort in solitary confinement? Something that not even mobster Al Capone
had to endure? How did you treat crooked crooked Hillary
Clinton, just asking you. That was crazy, when she put him in solitary
confinement when they didn’t even know what to call Al Capone except, that she didn’t. And he was in incredibly lenient. He had his laptop, he had his phone, he had
his own shower and his own. Like he had all of these extra perks over
and above what anyone else would get. My favorite was he could use his phone, which
was in his cell, for 12 hours a day. But to be fair, every call was capped at 15
minutes, which is a big limitation. Except that once you hit those 15 minutes
and disconnects, you can just call the person back again and just keep going for 12 hours
>>Okay, poor Paul Manafort and his ostrich jacket. Whereas black and brown people are put in
solitary confinement all the time endlessly by our horrific criminal justice system, without
a second thought. And I’ve never seen Donald Trump give a damn
about that, but his criminal partner Paul Manafort. My god, I heard they put him in solitary confinement
for the other 12 hours. He didn’t have his phone. No, that’s not what solitary confinement is. And he’s like, does she ever prison Hillary
Clinton? No, because there was no case brought in front
of her about Hillary Clinton. And judges don’t randomly go, hey, can you
guys grab Hillary Clinton cuz I want to put her in prison and then give her a solitary
confinement. None of that is how it works. And so, meanwhile, putting kids in cages that
cross the border, no problem. My elitist friends who helped me and my criminal
enterprise, how dare you put them in a cage after they broke law after law?>>Do you think, so this thing with the his
approach to Roger Stone is obviously different than his approach was to Manafort and to Cohen. Cohen, obviously, was more fully turned on
him, was willing to testify and all that. So that was a significant difference. But Paul Manafort didn’t really do that. And so how frustrated do you think Paul Manafort
must be? That now Trump is willing to just like stop
pretending and just he’s gonna do whatever it takes to get Roger Stone out. They’re lowering the sentence, he might pardon
him tomorrow. But Paul Manafort didn’t get that sort of
sweet deal, although perhaps, it’s an indication that it might becoming some sort of commutation
or something like that.>>I know you guys don’t need me, especially
if he wins again. I mean, certainly for the next year, but if
he wins again, there are no laws anymore. He’s like Bill Murray’s character in Kingpin,
his toupee flying in the wind, going, I’m above the law. And he kind of is. The Republican senators said he’s above the
law. We don’t care what the law is. We will never enforce it on Trump. So, yeah, he can do whatever the hell he wants.>>Yeah.>>There’s no chance of a second impeachment. I’d be in favor of it. I do it in a second. But you know, Democratic leadership, they’re
the weakest people on earth. There’s no chance that the Senate whatever
convict him of any crime, no matter how clear it is. So he now rightfully thinks I can break any
law, any rule, don’t care that could rub it in your face.>>Yeah, there’s no report, I mean, I guess,
I would love a second impeachment to go over the territory that should have been involved
in the first one. But outside of that sort of a completions
streak, what would be the point? Republicans are as lawless as him, or as little
concern with what all this means for the future of our country.>>Well, you know man, I think democratic
party should be a thousand times more aggressive. I’d do it to call witnesses. Bolton says he’d like to testify, can do.>>That’s true.>>We could make that happen right away. Let’s bring in everybody. And what was the corrupt deal he had with
China and Turkey that Bolton was referring to? And if you got no evidence, I don’t care. I’d do a second impeachment. I’d do an eighth impeachment, but not for
political reasons. If he actually broke the law, then yes. And by the way, charging with crimes next
time. He already broke five laws in the Ukraine
story three and two others at a minimum. So, but that requires courage from the Democratic
Party.>>Yeah, and it doesn’t seem crazy that we’re
like, we’re done with this. We’re moving on. We don’t know what John Bolton knows, like,
hypothetically, maybe we can read the book or whatever. But there’s not gonna be any sort of like
cross examination or anything. And Robert Hyde, what was he doing? What’s our hope at this point? Maybe someone will make a documentary someday? He might have been stalking and planning to
murder an ambassador. That’s foolish, move on.

  1. Who cares he has proven that the America we believe in isn't real. It's all a bunch of people with money trying to make more money while tricking the public into thinking they're surrounded by people who mean them harm. I'm not a smart guy at all but some things are way more simple than you think. Also realize almost everyone is on some type of drug and truly believe they don't have a problem. These same people go online and believe all sorts of insane stories and believe them. Meanwhile the other side has convinced themselves they are the most moral group base off of niceties and not truth.

  2. Trump: "My buddy got caught committing numerous crimes, intimidating witnesses, and all around being a shady, no good pile of shit, He's the exact person I want at my side, lemme see what I can do for him"

    Trump is a wannabe mobster and needs to go down the same way Tommy Devito did in The Goodfellas, except live on TV with slow motion cameras pointed at him from all angles so everyone can enjoy the bullet path in and out.

  3. A perverted bully trying to help his perverted bully liar pal using his corrupt head of DOJ. What have the republicans done to this Country?

  4. So Obama makes a comment about his friend being falsely arrested and conservatives bashed him for it. Obama tried making reforms in DOJ practices and conservatives bashed him again and said he was trying to politicize the DOJ. They also called him racist for it. Trump calls the FBI corrupt, obstructs investigations, possibly witness tampering, and has politicized the DOJ and conservatives are silent.

  5. Well the good news is that Trumps obese, addicted to McDonalds and Aderrall and stress tweets three times a week, whilst not getting laid…there’s that

  6. Well, they can’t impeach him twice, so maybe it would’ve been a good idea to hold off until they controlled the senate after all, eh?

  7. Did the corrupt demon-KKKrats try to interfere in our elections with their failed pathetic coup attempt? Answer: Of course they did, and failed miserably. HA HA President Trump is acquitted for life of any wrong doing. He keeps winning and winning!

  8. The judge determines the length of sentence judge Amy Berman Jackson was appointed by Obama

    Lets see if buckles under pressure from crooked Barr

  9. Give the Turds your hard earned money ha ha , so they can rip you off like they did in their climate change town hall fund raiser.

  10. But doesn't Roger Stone know that prison is the BEST place to meet large black men who'd be happy to cuck his wife for him?

  11. There are only two type of white people that like Trump the ignorant and the racistthose same white people feel that most white people should be above the lawand it's pretty damn obvious Trump is trying to be a dictator like Russia and Putin that's what he's trying to turn the u.s. into and the current Republican party is complicit in trying to help Trump accomplish that

  12. Actually trumps you do not have the right to put yourself into an investigation that has nothing to do with you according to you

  13. Very simply put if you break the law for Trump and kiss Trump's ass Trump will protect you in the iend this just goes to show you Trump is all about breaking the law

  14. I just hope from Trump all the way down to his average supporter do realize in the end God is going to judge them and they are going to go to he'll for supporting Trump guarantee

  15. Haha! Roger Stone gets the last laugh Genk! The Internet will ALWAYS laugh and remember when Alex Jones and Roger Stone made a FOOL of Chunk Yogurt. Literally MILLIONS laughed at you and the triggered regressive left!

  16. Roger was illegally railroaded. We are supposed to be granted a right to a fair trial in the US. This is not a communist banana republic!

  17. If white people are so bad then why is cowfarts Cortez dating the whitest red headed “man” walking god’s green earth?

  18. 6:15 Black and brown people? I mean… probably more whites are in solitary confinement technically…. And are just as likely. Blacks/brown people are simply more likely to be arrested and convicted and sentenced longer. Not necessarily sent to solitary confinement.

  19. Dont you guys have enough to talk about with your screwed up primaries. Cant you get off Trump for 24 hours? You guys are insane with the trump coverage.

  20. When the right wing are in a jam, laws simply don't apply to them. Hell, corporate Democrats are susceptible to it, so I know the right wing will completely disregard law.

  21. Duuuuhhhhh … stop promoting this broken demented wannabe dictator. Every news feed you go to has the Tangerine Terrorist Trump on it 24/7. Stop just stop.

  22. Trump calling out the CROOKED & CORRUPT Dems daily–so good for America! Unfortunately the corrupt Dem media will only attack Trump, saying "most Americans" want him to go away. But decent & honest Americans know the Dem media are FILTHY & CORRUPT PROPAGANDISTS. Smart Dems joing the TRUMP TRAIN as we speak. Thanks so much–your kids will appreciate your wisdom!

  23. If Mueller lied to Congress, the House should hold an enquiry to establish the facts and take action against Mueller or more likely against Trump for promoting even further lies.

  24. Keep in mind that the neither the President, the attorney general nor the prosecutors sentence convicted criminals. Judges do that and they answer to no one, they are appointed for life for a reason. The President, as the head of the administration, has every legal right to tell the attorney general to try to influence that sentencing decision.

  25. Those prosecutors resigned because they finally realized that the boss may not always be right, in their opinion, but he is always the boss. They are part of the Trump administration and the Trump administration is led by Trump. Some people just can't figure that out and understand it.

  26. How stops and or lazy do you have to be to but into this shit? I just feel bad for the hundreds of people who actually bought a membership to this propoganda network.

  27. Cenk, do your mentally challenged followers a favor and explain to that the US Government has 3 separate and distinct branches. The is the Executive, Legislative (Senate and House of Representatives) and Judicial. The president and the president only runs the executive branch. The Senate is run my the majority leader and the house is run by the speaker. The Judicial is led by the chief justice of the supreme court. The Justice Department is part of the Executive branch and the President runs that branch. That's why he can tell the attorney general and prosecutors what he would like them to do.

  28. Cenk, do your mentally challenged followers a favor and explain to that the US Government has 3 separate and distinct branches. The is the Executive, Legislative (Senate and House of Representatives) and Judicial. The president and the president only runs the executive branch.

  29. So there was no FISA abuse? They couldn't have wire tapped Carter Page with a warrant from a regular public court? Secret courts are good now I guess.

  30. First you people at TYT are stupid. Stone had NO criminal past, None violent, NOT a danger to society, and NO victim, there was NOT one victim in all of this. They raid a 67 year old man's house in the middle of the night with helicopters and a Armed Swat team (tipped off CNN) so can you give me an example of another person who is NOT a danger to society being treated like this? OK I'll wait. This just like the Muller investigation was a political hit job and you think it's ok to put a 67 year old man away for life. Democrats are for prison reform but if it has to due with anything Trump it's the most extreme measures. This is why Barr RECOMMENDED less jail time, he has no authority but it's just a recommendation. Ultimately, it's up to the judge but the crime doesn't meet the sentence. Also, just like in every other person case with withheld exculpatory evidence I wonder how much exculpatory evidence they withheld in this case? The average rapist only gets 3-4 years. You are out of your mind. Now we are finding out that one of jurors had extreme Anti Trump bias. By all accounts this case has been tainted and must be retired. Last, Trump has the power to Pardon Stone so again TYT look like idiots.

  31. They already planned on community his sentence before trump even sent out his tweet. Also if trump wanted to commute Stones sentence then he has every right to do so with his pardoning powers. God you people are absolutely insane everything Trump does is “impeachable”.

  32. Growing up, I never dreamed i'd witness the fall of the United States ….. My mom always said Republicans only care about money and nothing else – she was right

  33. Trump is such a liar he did demand that the Rodger Stone case be changed to suit his own needs and the needs of his ally.

  34. Just listen to these Turk Motherfu-kers, The Mueller Report found that Trump did not collide with Russia. Oliver Stone should have never been investigated to begin with. Trump should pardon everyone those FBI bastards lives they ruined. This Democrat sh-t show was noting but a Soviet-style Give us a name and we'll invent the crime investigation

  35. Let no one deceive you in any way. For that day will not come, unless the rebellion comes first, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of destruction, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God. (2 Thessalonians 2:3-4)

  36. Another news Jussie Smollett indicted for lying to the police as every ordinarily American citizen. But the rich people play sardines with law and order it doesn't apply to them

  37. Saw the title, haven’t watched the video, but to answer the question posed, what difference does it make? Based on what we’ve JUST witnessed, thus far, he is not being held accountable for any wrongdoing…🤷🏾‍♂️🤦🏾‍♂️

  38. trump has the right and authority to pardon roger stone if he wants to and it's totally legal and there's nothing that anybody can do about it. but he's not about to do that. he just like to stir the pot to get your TDS moron goats.

  39. little donny dump trump thinks that if you do it in plain sight,and your president it cant be wrong, hes playing his con. cult 45

  40. Cenk, you've ALMOST got it. It's not how many times you try to impeach, it's the quality of the evidence you try and impeach with. The Democrats had only sketchy, hearsay evidence. That's why they lost. And why he's now, as you say, "above the law," and he's going to start locking up his enemies now. It's a horrible situation, but we have only the Democrats to blame.

  41. Trump is a man of honor in the vein of the late Mafioso Jo Bonanno. All Italian Americans can be proud of a man like Trump and his courage to stand by his friends. No wonder Bernie Sanders calls him the most dangerous president in history.
