Speaker Nancy Pelosi was urged to start impeachment proceedings against the attorney general of the United States on Tuesday.
AG Bill Barr's Department of Justice told a judge they were wrong to suggest that longtime Donald Trump political advisor Roger Stone should serve seven to nine years in federal prison after a tweet from President Donald Trump.
Backlash against Barr's actions resulted in the resignations of Stone prosecutors Aaron Zelinsky, Jonathan Kravis, Adam Jed, and Michael Marando -- all four of the federal prosecutors working on the case.
