[See NewsBusters for more.] Ex-Roger Stone prosecutor Aaron Zelinsky testified in front of the House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday that the decision to reduce Stone's sentence was made because Stone was a friend of President Trump. For MSNBC Live's Chuck Todd and Katy Tur, this confirmed their beliefs that the DOJ under Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr is being politicized to extent where it is comparable to Richard Nixon and committing a crime.

Todd began by reporting that the DOJ rejects Zelinsky's assertion, "They don't deny getting involved, they just deny it was a political motivation that got the attorney general involved. He just thought the sentencing thing was a mistake and he got involved that way. They're not denying he was getting involved. They're just denying the motive, and I think that becomes eye of the beholder."
