    Group of more than 1,000 judges calls emergency meeting amid Trump concerns

    Judges will meet to address alarm over the president intervening in politically sensitive cases

    A national association of federal judges has called an emergency meeting to address growing concerns about the intervention of Donald Trump and justice department officials in politically sensitive cases, according to US media reports.

    Cynthia Rufe, a Philadelphia US district judge who heads the independent Federal Judges Association, which has more than 1,100 members, told USA Today the group “could not wait” until its spring conference to discuss the matter.

    “There are plenty of issues that we are concerned about,” Rufe told USA Today. “We’ll talk all of this through.”

    The meeting comes after more than 2,000 former US justice department officials, including some of the top government lawyers in the country, called on the attorney general, William Barr, to resign in the wake of the Roger Stone scandal.

    Alumni of the Department of Justice posted to Medium on Sunday a group letter that tore into Barr for “doing the president’s personal bidding” in imposing on prosecutors the recommendation of a reduced sentence for Stone, a longtime friend of Trump who was convicted of lying to and obstructing Congress and threatening a witness in the Russia investigation.

    Barr, the officials said, had damaged the reputation of the department for “integrity and the rule of law”.

    The spiralling constitutional crisis began last week when Barr imposed his new sentencing memo, slashing a seven- to nine-year proposed prison term suggested by career prosecutors. In the fallout, the four prosecutors who had handled the case resigned in disgust.

    US district Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who is presiding over the Stone’s case, has ordered both sides to participate in a conference call on Tuesday to discuss the status of the case. Following the call, it was confirmed that Stone’s sentencing would go ahead on Thursday.

    Rufe voiced her strong support for Jackson, according to USA Today.

    “I am not concerned with how a particular judge will rule,” Rufe said. “We are supportive of any federal judge who does what is required.”

    It was not clear whether the FJA would issue a statement after the emergency meeting. The Guardian contacted the FJA for comment.

    I’m shocked! Shocked to hear that commie leftist judges who have been infiltrated by leftist politicians into the entire judicial system would protest someone who is not part of the same agenda.

    Ironically, IMHO, Bill Barr is doing this to protect the left establishment more than Trump associates. He is a status quo, old time establishment member. He wants to stop all of the prosecutions of political figures because he is protecting the system. He is defending the DOJ, FBI, CIA and them. Just like McCabe. Investigate, but never prosecute.

    The hard left doesn’t care. They want to destroy their perceived enemies at any cost. Anyone who disagrees with their schemes, even if their plans will never work. The ends justify the means. By any means necessary. As Chris Matthews said, they will never be happy until there are mass executions in Central Park or a baseball stadium.

    I think fed judges are supposed to follow the rule of law . That does not include meeting in covens to set agendas outside the law . Sounds like dissention to me. We have that worthless fbi , maybe they should look into these .

    I would not discount Zippy so much. He's shown time and time again he has solid connections to the mods of RPF.
