(Gateway Pundit) – It’s starting to look like the Deep State and Democrats planned the commotion this week to take down Attorney General Bill Barr.
Roger Stone’s deep state prosecutors this week stunned the Attorney General’s office by pushing for a sentence of 7-9 years for Roger Stone in a process crime in the Trump-collusion hoax investigation.

The Department of Justice said it was “shocked” at the excessive prison term being sought by Mueller’s prosecutors because it wasn’t what the DOJ was initially briefed on.
Either Mueller’s thugs lied to the DOJ or they sought more prison time for Roger Stone in retaliation for Trump’s impeachment acquittal.
And now it appears the same thing happened in the General Flynn case.
Attorney General Bill Barr was also reportedly stunned and angry when the Flynn prosecutors asked the judge last month to consider prison time for General Flynn.
Barr was under the impression his underlings would not advocate for that.
In recent filings, the Justice Department appeared to waiver on seeking prison. But they also have harshly warned Flynn of the consequences he may face by switching his plea to not guilty, if the judge allows it.
The filing on Wednesday — again positioning prosecutors in opposition to what Flynn wants — came amid rising tensions between the attorney general and the Justice Department’s career prosecutors in Washington, including former Mueller prosecutors still at work on cases that originated with the special counsel’s investigation. The Justice Department’s new filing on Flynn seemingly popped up out of nowhere, many days before any statement from the department was due to the court in the case.
In recent weeks, the Justice Department’s approach to Flynn has created a debate between career prosecutors who want him to serve prison time and top political officials at the Justice Department, who advocated for probation only. Attorney General William Barr was angry, for instance, when prosecutors asked the judge in January to consider prison for Flynn, because Barr had thought his underlings wouldn’t advocate for that.
