President Donald Trump on Wednesday erupted over the alleged mistreatment of Roger Stone, his longtime political aide.
Trump railed against the prosecution of Stone, calling it a disgrace. “They ought to apologize,” the president said.
Stone was convicted last year of lying to Congress, tampering with a witness and obstructing an investigation into whether the Trump campaign coordinated with Russian operatives.
Four federal prosecutors abruptly resigned from Stone’s case on Tuesday after senior officials in the Department of Justice intervened on his behalf an sought a less sentence.
Trump was also asked if he planned to pardon Stone.
“I don’t want to say yet,” he replied.
Asked what being impeached had taught him, Trump said he learned that “the Democrats are crooked. They got a lot of crooked things going. That they’re vicious.”

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham claimed on Wednesday that President Donald Trump "barely knows" former Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-CA), who has been linked to a possible pardon for Julian Assange.
At a pre-trial hearing earlier on Wednesday, Assange asserted that he had been offered a pardon in exchange for publicly denying that Russia hacked Democratic National Committee servers during the 2016 election campaign.
Rohrabacher admitted in 2017 that he had tried to broker a deal between Assange and the White House.

Or the city famous for its canals will build a large hotel for sex workers.
All in all, a prostitution hotel with indoor windows or an erotic center is the most obvious choice," the Amsterdam city council said in a statement.
