White House deputy press secretary Hogan Gidley stated Wednesday that neither President Donald Trump nor White House officials spoke with Attorney General Bill Barr about changing the sentencing recommendations for Roger Stone.
“Unequivocally no,” Gidley said on Fox News when asked about the topic. “He didn’t talk to Attorney General [Bill] Barr before the sentence. In fact, the Attorney general and DOJ made it very clear they made this decision before any tweet went out. They made this decision on their own.”
The article goes on to state the following:
Gidley further insinuated that the DOJ would have to “address” the process in which the news of Stone’s sentence first broke.

President Trump tweeted Wednesday morning, “Congratulations to Attorney General Bill Barr for taking charge of a case that was totally out of control and perhaps should not have even been brought. Evidence now clearly shows that the Mueller Scam was improperly brought & tainted. Even Bob Mueller lied to Congress!”

While speaking with reporters in the Oval Office on Tuesday, President Trump confirmed he had not spoken with Barr on the matter, but said, “I thought the recommendation was ridiculous. I thought the whole prosecution was ridiculous. I thought it was an insult to our country and it shouldn’t happen.”
