Trump AXES Treasury Department Nominee Over Oliver Stone Case

, , 57 Comments

Right after the Justice Department moved to reverse its stiff sentencing recommendation for Roger Stone, President Donald Trump abruptly decided to withdraw the nomination of former U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu for the role of undersecretary for terrorism and financial crimes at the Treasury Department, Fox News reported.

Trump was reportedly very dissatisfied with the recommended sentence for Stone, and apparently it was Liu who was the U.S. attorney overseeing the case – which is why he chose to axe her.

Controversial DOJ move

Monday and Tuesday saw a flurry of activity surrounding the case of Roger Stone. The prosecuting attorneys on the case had recommended a 7-to-9-year sentence for Stone.

That recommendation was apparently made without consulting the higher-ups in the department, and the recommendation was sent to the judge without Attorney General Bill Barr’s approval, which is why early this week, the Department of Justice (DOJ) decided to change its sentencing recommendation for Roger Stone – a former campaign associate of Donald Trump’s.

You can read our report about the reversal here.

Needless to say, the decision made a lot of people angry – including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi – and has since caused a lot of chaos on the internet by Democrat activists.

Trump Is Happy Though

However, there is one person who is happy with the DOJ’s decision – and that person is President Donald Trump himself.

Trump lobbied very hard to reduce Roger Stone’s harsh sentence. So the fact that the DOJ is reversing course is a huge political victory for the president.

But not only is this a big victory, but it’s also proof of mismanagement by the prosecuting attorneys regarding Stone – which is a situation that Trump needed to deal with. That’s why Trump has decided clean house by withdrawing the nomination of former U.S. Attorney Jessie Liu. Trump doesn’t want that kind of mismanagement surrounding him, which is undoubtedly a smart choice on President Trump’s part.

    Roger Stone is NOT A DANGEROUS CRIMINAL.To goto his house in the middle of the night with guns blazing is absurd and his sentence is absurd. The D’s need to back off and start doing things that help the american people!!

      I am very concerned with the WRONG WAY of DEMOCRAT PARTY development. .Instead to learn from TRAGIC BOOMERANG EFFECT of “FAILED COUP”,sinking their CREDIBILITY to the bottom, increased the CHAOS ,take over of the SOCIALISM-COMMUNISM IDEOLOGY PROPAGANDA,DECREASING the chances to win in 2020 election at all levels, threatening to be considered the ALLY with BILLIONAIRES to buy the WH, will have a very disappointed strong effect on the REAL DEMOCRAT LOYALISTS.

    AFTER the “FAILED COUP”,the President has obligation to assure that the people from different positions, are LOYALS to AMERICAN people, not to internal and external enemies,propagandists of SOCIALISM ,and promoters of FAKE NEWS.
    In order to implement the goals of AMERICA: stop POLITICAL CORRECTNESS, GLOBALISM, OPEN BORDERS, SANCTUARY CITIES,DRIVERS LICENSE FOR ILLEGALS ,and many other benefits.TAKE CARE for AMERICANS.Drop prices of MEDICINES. Solve the HOMELESS without control movement.

    It doesn’t matter what President Trump says or does the Democrats are going to blow it out of proportion and cry fowl!! They seem to forget he is the President and has certain privileges and rights. It would be great if the Supreme Court judges would say enough already!!!

    Absolutely. Draining the swamp couldn’t happen at a better time and now that this fraudulent case is behind us, he can start to drain. The Communist Party is going to go nuts and now…..a new law needs to presented to outlaw communism and socialism in America and definitely outlaw these people serving in any government or state office.

    be now. You’re very intelligent. You already know thus significantly
    on the subject of this subject, made me in my opinion believe it from a lot
    of numerous angles. Its like men and women aren’t involved unless it’s something to do with Lady gaga!
    Your individual stuffs nice. At all times take care of it up!

    When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added”
    checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Many thanks!

    Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m looking to start my own blog in the near future but I’m
    having a hard time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most
    blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

    Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. Nevertheless
    just imagine if you added some great graphics or videos to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and clips, this blog could definitely be one of the best in its field.
    Wonderful blog!

    Hey! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest writing a blog post or vice-versa?
    My website addresses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I
    feel we could greatly benefit from each other.
    If you might be interested feel free to shoot me
