Trump 'not involved' in DOJ's handling of Roger Stone case

Prosecutors on Monday recommended a prison sentence of seven to nine years for Stone, who was one of several Trump associates who faced charges stemming from then-Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Trump declined to comment when asked by reporters at the White House whether he was considering issuing a pardon for Stone.
