Good Wednesday morning.
Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:
- The president has lunch with the Vice President
- The President and First Lady meet with the President of the Republic of Ecuador and Mrs. Rocio Gonzales De Moreno
- The president participates in an expanded bilateral meeting with the President of the Republic of Ecuador
- President Trump delivers remarks at a Fundraising Committee Reception at the Trump International Hotel
Sanders squeaks out a win in New Hampshire
Senator Bernie Sanders won the New Hampshire primary with 26% of the vote and Buttigieg closely followed with 24%. Both men will get 9 delegates. Senator Amy! Klobuchar took third place with 20% of the vote and Senator Elizabeth Warren got 9%. If you are wondering where Biden is in the mix, 8% of the primary voters cast a ballot for him. Biden left New Hampshire before the election yesterday, which was not an encouraging sign for Biden fans.
I don’t know how much longer Biden can hold on. His strategy is to hit it big in South Carolina but after 2 humiliating defeats and a probable poor performance in Nevada on February 22, there might not be much left for him. It’s clear that Biden’s fall has benefited Amy! as those voters who don’t want a socialist on the top of the ticket flocked over to her. Klobuchar is planning to expand her campaign so we will see if she can keep her momentum in Nevada.
Elizabeth Warren is also tanking, she doesn’t have much time left unless she delivers in Nevada. I don’t know if she will even make it there, she might drop out today.

After absurd sentencing request for Roger Stone, Four U.S. Attorneys resign
Four former Mueller-connected federal prosecutors resigned yesterday after the DoJ said it would revise the ridiculous sentencing request for Roger Stone. The DoJ had initially asked for 7 to 9 years for the aged Stone who was convicted on non-violent process crimes generated out of the sham “investigation” into RUSSIA collusion.
Aaron Zelinsky, who handled several of the most prominent cases in the special counsel’s probe, and Jonathan Kravis, an assistant U.S. attorney in Washington, D.C., filed notices of their withdrawals with Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who oversaw Stone’s trial. Prosecutors Adam Jed and Michael Marando also withdrew.
Before the four attorneys bailed, the DoJ released a statement saying they were reconsidering the length of the Stone sentence saying it was “extreme, excessive and grossly disproportionate.” And President Trump also tweeted his displeasure with the recommendation, calling it “disgraceful,” and said he “cannot allow this miscarriage of justice.”
Did the prosecutors lie about their sentencing recommendation? “The Department was shocked to see the sentencing recommendation in the filing in the Stone case last night,” an official told Fox News. “The sentencing recommendation was not what had been briefed to the Department.”
And that’s not all! According to CNN, President Donald Trump on Tuesday abruptly withdrew the nomination for Jessie Liu, the former US attorney who headed the office that oversaw Roger Stone’s prosecution, to serve in a top Treasury Department position.” Liu was scheduled for a confirmation hearing on Thursday.
Now there are calls for an “investigation” of course.
By tweet @realDonaldTrump engaged in political interference in the sentencing of Roger Stone. 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.
