Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said Wednesday the Justice Department’s initial recommendation to imprison Republican political consultant Roger Stone for up to nine years was both extreme and a plot by prosecutors linked to the Mueller probe to legitimize their now-defunct investigation.

“It rises out of the Mueller investigation, which has been thoroughly compromised by not only the FISA come up with the political nature of the investigators, most of whom are Democrats or Democrat donors,” Fitton told “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “You also have them investigating Trump for almost two years, knowing the underlying issue — Russia collusion — was a big scam and a big lie.”

Fitton said Stone’s entire case came about because of Mueller’s investigation, which found no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, and which Fitton said was “compromised” by the FISA abuse scandal and the “political nature” with which the ex-FBI director’s probe was executed. Fitton also noted that two of the four prosecutors who withdrew from the Stone case — Aaron Zelinsky and Jonathan Kravis — after the Justice Department filed for a reduced sentence are linked to the Mueller investigation.
