President Donald Trump took a victory lap online on Tuesday evening after Attorney General Bill Barr's Department of Justice revised their recommended sentence for longtime Trump political adviser Roger Stone.


Trump had blasted the proposed sentence on Twitter shortly before 2 a.m. on Tuesday morning.

Following Trump's tweet, the Department of Justice announced they would seek a lighter sentence from Trump's pal.

Stone prosecutors Aaron Zelinsky, Jonathan Kravis, Adam Jed, and Michael Marando resigned after interference in the case from main Justice.
