“It is surprising that the line in the sand — a revised notification,” a senior DOJ official told Fox News, adding that the problem with the original sentencing recommendation, it was told to the judge, to ensure that the only possibility for justice, was a long sentence.
“We are secure, “It must”,” the DOJ source told Fox News. “The amended filing says it’s a felony and jail time is appropriate; let’s just say it doesn’t have to be 87 to 108 months.”
In an interview with journalists on Tuesday, Trump said, he stayed out of internal DOJ deliberations, but strong against your first conviction of a recommendation.
