WASHINGTON — President Trump asserted Friday that he had the legal right to intervene in federal criminal cases, a day after Attorney General William P. Barr publicly rebuked him for attacks on Justice Department prosecutors and others involved in the case of Roger J. Stone Jr., the president’s longtime friend.

In a morning tweet, Mr. Trump quoted Mr. Barr saying that the president “has never asked me to do anything in a criminal case.” The president said he had “so far chosen” not to interfere in a criminal case even though he insisted that he is not legally bound to do so.

“This doesn’t mean that I do not have, as President, the legal right to do so, I do, but I have so far chosen not to!” he said.

The assertion by the president, rejecting a request by Mr. Barr to stop tweeting about the department’s cases, adds to the mounting controversy over the decision by senior Justice Department officials to overrule prosecutors who had recommended a seven to nine year sentence for Mr. Stone, who was convicted of seven felonies in a bid to obstruct a congressional investigation that threatened the president.

When did President Obama meddle in a pending federal prosecution or suggest a particular sentence was too severe?

More importantly when did Obama's own AG complain about his meddling like Barr is doing with Trum

 :lol: Oldsport, it is so unfortunate that you, a professed Christian and a member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc, cannot seem to communicate with folk with whom you disagree without resorting to name calling and profanity. Morgan State must be very proud of you.

Anyway, so, you can't name one instance where President Obama meddled in a pending federal criminal investigation or suggested that a particular sentence was too severe.  I didn't think you would be able to do so. :shrug:

I have read Article II of the United States Constitution. The first sentence reads as follows: The executive Power shall be vested in a President of the United States of America.

However, I don't believe Article II of the Constitution gives the President authority to abuse his power by corruptly interfering in a pending criminal investigation.

K----, he meddled the entire time during the Hillary Clinton investigation and set the stage for the BS Comey spewed...in basically exonerating her from indictment something which he had no authority to do as the FBI head. (However, Obama was basically a empty suit and mere talking head just like the gay blade Buttigieg. While Sanders is basically a Marxist gadfly who does not know his a**  from a hole in the ground, I respect him more than either Biden or Buttigieg...Warren is basically a GD idiot...Bloomberg is a smart man but he's not electable for reasons I won't say here. )

Please post Obama’s words that show he was meddling. The rest of your post is irrelevant to my inquiry.
