Trump Claims Prosecutors Who Quit Only Did So Because ‘They Got Caught In The Act By Me!’
Donald Trump got interviewed by Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera this week where he lashed out once again at the prosecutors in charge of the Roger Stone case.
According to Trump, the four prosecutors who quit didn’t do it because they were morally opposed to Trump’s intervention in the Department of Justice’s sentencing guidelines, but because the president “caught them in the act.”
“I don’t think they quit for moral reasons,” the president said. “I think they got caught in the act by me!”
He then explained exactly what he “caught” the prosecutors doing.
“What am I going to do, let a man go to jail for nine years when murderers aren’t going to jail!” he fumed. “You have some of the most serious, horrible rapists and everything else, they don’t go to jail for nine years!”
Rivera then suggested that the prosecutors recommended between seven to nine years for Stone because they were trying to hurt him.
“They’re doing it because they’re bad people!” Trump replied.
