To: Department of Justice Inspector General; House Judiciary Committee

Investigate DOJ's Roger Stone Reversal!

The Department of Justice appears to be putting Donald Trump's friends above the law.

Following a tweet from Trump, the Justice Department undid the work of career civil servants prosecuting Trump's confidante, the convicted criminal Roger Stone, shortening the sentence they were seeking in his case. All four of the federal attorneys responsible for pursuing justice for Stone's crimes have resigned in protest.

The Justice Department's internal watchdog must investigate the corrupt about-face made at the seeming behest of Donald Trump and call out cronyism within its own ranks. But given how compromised disgraced Attorney General William Barr is, we cannot trust the Justice Department to correct its course. The House Judiciary Committee, which has oversight of Barr, must also investigate independently.

Why is this important?

Donald Trump has already shown that he thinks he's above the law, and will act accordingly. But the Justice Department showing preferential treatment for Trump's criminal accomplices is a threat to the country. This turn has come within a week of the Senate GOP refusing to hold Trump accountable for his impeachable offenses. If the Department of Justice's Inspector General and the House Judiciary Committee don't act now, Trump will be shown that he is free to bend the law to his whim.

Reasons for signing

  • Corrupt administration
  • This is a blatant abuse of power by the current administration. The Trump administration has to be held accountable and the recent failure to convict in the senate has led the “president” to believe that he is above the rule of law.
  • It's time to hold criminals accountable for their actions. Just because you're old, it shouldn't mean you get away with crimes!! Don't do the crime if you can't do the time! And Barr needs to stop suckling up to trump! Enough is enough!! They all need to be thrown out of office....smh
