Zelinsky to Congress - Stone got favorable treatment because US ATTY was "Afraid of the President"

STATEMENT FOR THE RECORD
Assistant United States Attorney Aaron S. J. Zelinsky
House Judiciary Committee
June 24, 2020

Testimony before Congress re: Roger Stone
SNIP-

"I was told that the Acting U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia, Timothy Shea,
was receiving heavy pressure from the highest levels of the Department of Justice
to cut Stone a break, and that the U.S. Attorney’s sentencing instructions to us were
based on political considerations. I was also told that the acting U.S. Attorney was
giving Stone such unprecedentedly favorable treatment because he was “afraid of
the President."

1. sadly, "I was told..."

isn't going to cut it as evidence. Does he have a memo, email or recording?

I 100% believe him otherwise
