Description

Hours after the Justice Department intervened to seek a shorter sentence for Roger Stone, the four federal prosecutors who secured his conviction withdrew from the case.

Stone was convicted in November on charges of lying to Congress, obstructing its investigation and witness tampering. Judge Amy Berman Jackson has the ultimate authority to hand down the sentence in his case.

This episode: congressional correspondent Susan Davis, Justice Department correspondent Ryan Lucas, and White House correspondent Tamara Keith.
