Trump associate Roger Stone was sentenced to 40 months in prison for obstructing a congressional investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. Stone's sentencing was put under a microscope due to Trump's perceived intervention on Stone's behalf — Trump took to Twitter to advocate for his friend, saying Stone's prosecution is a "disgrace." Federal prosecutors first recommended a sentence of seven to nine years, but Department of Justice officials sent a second memo recommending a lighter sentence, which led four of the federal prosecutors to resign.
