On Tuesday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused President Trump of using his Twitter account to engage in “political interference” in regards to Roger Stone’s pending sentencing, and she demanded an investigation.

Upon learning of an initial 9-year sentence recommendation from prosecutors handling Stone’s case, Trump tweeted, “This is a horrible and very unfair situation. The real crimes were on the other side, as nothing happens to them. Cannot allow this miscarriage of justice!”

According to Fox News, senior DOJ officials were also “shocked” that prosecutors handling Stone’s case were recommending between 87 and 108 months in prison.

As a result, the DOJ submitted an amended filing on Tuesday, where they told the judge that the government “respectfully submits that a sentence of incarceration far less than 87 to 108 months’ imprisonment would be reasonable under the circumstances,” but that the government “ultimately defers to the Court as to the specific sentence to be imposed.”

The move by the DOJ’s top brass ultimately led to four prosecutors who were handling Stone’s case to withdraw from their posts out of protest.

In response to the entire fiasco, President Trump tweeted: “Who are the four prosecutors (Mueller people?) who cut and ran after being exposed for recommending a ridiculous 9 year prison sentence to a man that got caught up in an investigation that was illegal, the Mueller Scam, and shouldn’t ever even have started? 13 Angry Democrats?” See Below

President Trump’s Official Tweet

Moments after the president’s tweet, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi accused Trump of engaging in “political interference” and demanded the entire situation surrounding Stone’s sentencing be “investigated.”

“By tweet @realDonaldTrump engaged in political interference in the sentencing of Roger Stone,” Pelosi tweeted.

“It is outrageous that DOJ has deeply damaged the rule of law by withdrawing its recommendation. Stepping down of prosecutors should be commended & actions of DOJ should be investigated,” she declared.

Earlier on Tuesday, House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler reacted to the move by the DOJ regarding Roger Stone’s sentencing and already implicated President Trump in the situation without knowing all of the facts.
