[UPDATE: 4TH AND FINAL PROSECUTOR OUT] – DOJ Prosecutors RESIGN from Roger Stone case after sentencing controversy

The former Mueller prosecutor who asked for the nearly 9 year sentence for Roger Stone has now resigned from the case, effective immediately:

Below is his one sentence notice of withdrawal:

Zelinsky didn’t give a reason for his resignation, but my guess is that it wasn’t of his own volition considering the earlier report that the DOJ leadership was quite unhappy with this sentencing recommendation, calling it ‘extreme’ and ‘grossly disproportionate’.

UPDATE: A second prosecutor has now resigned from Roger Stone’s case:

He’s reportedly not a Mueller prosecutor:

UPDATE: A third prosecutor is now resigned from the Stone case:

UPDATE: The fourth and final prosecutor has now resigned from the Stone case. Wow:

Hopefully we’ll be reporting next that they’ve all four resigned from the DOJ to go work at CNN.
