House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif) in a tweet Tuesday night accused President Trump of engaging in “political interference in the sentencing of Roger Stone” and called for an investigation into the Department of Justice (DOJ).

Pelosi also commended the four prosecutors who quit Stone’s case Tuesday after the DOJ asked for a lighter sentence than what they had recommended.

The article goes on to state the following:

“By tweet @realDonaldTrump engaged in political interference in the sentencing of Roger Stone,” she wrote. “It is outrageous that DOJ has deeply damaged the rule of law by withdrawing its recommendation. Stepping down of prosecutors should be commended & actions of DOJ should be investigated.”

Pelosi was referring to President Trump’s tweet, which he fired off around midnight Monday night.

“This is a horrible and very unfair situation. The real crimes were on the other side, as nothing happens to them. Cannot allow this miscarriage of justice!” Trump had tweeted.

Within just minutes after Pelosi’s tweet demanding an investigation, Trump fired off another post. He wrote:

Who are the four prosecutors (Mueller people?) who cut and ran after being exposed for recommending a ridiculous 9 year prison sentence to a man that got caught up in an investigation that was illegal, the Mueller Scam, and shouldn’t ever even have started? 13 Angry Democrats?
