Trump Believes He Has ‘The Legal Right’ To Intervene In Any Criminal Case

Donald Trump took to Twitter early Friday morning after a week of turmoil to claim that he can intervene in any criminal case if he wanted to because being president gives him that right.

This week, Trump’s former adviser Roger Stone was sentenced seven to nine years in prison. But shortly after the sentencing was announced, Attorney General William Barr intervened and said the sentencing was too harsh.

What caught people off guard is that Barr’s decision came hours after Trump had taken to Twitter to say that Stone’s sentencing was a “miscarriage of justice.”

Barr appeared on ABC News a day later to claim that the president has never told him to intervene in an investigation.

But Trump’s early morning tweet Friday quoted those words, then continued: “This doesn’t mean that I do not have, as President, the legal right to do so, I do, but I have so far chosen not to!”
