A federal prosecutor and another official justice department plan will tell Congress Wednesday that Attorney General William P. Barr and his top deputies have given inappropriate orders amid investigations and trials “based on political considerations” and a desire to accommodate President Trump.
Aaron Zelinsky, an assistant United States attorney in Maryland, formerly described in the investigation of Robert S. Mueller III in Russia, will tell the House Judiciary Committee that prosecutors involved in the criminal trial against Trump’s friend Roger Stone “encountered heavy pressure from the highest levels of the Department of Justice to cut Stone a break” by asking for a lighter sentence , according to Zelinsky’s prepared remarks. He planned to testify that the expectation was that Stone would have to be treated “differently and more leniently” because of his “relationship with the president.”
Zelinsky will be joined by John Elias, an antitrust official at the Department of Justice, who will say that Barr instructed staff to investigate mergers of marijuana companies simply because he “didn’t like the nature of their underlying business,” according to his prepared testimony.
