Today's comes from the eminent Constitutional scholar, Laurence Tribe --
For those new to these pages, Newton Minow is best known as the former patient and poker-playing buddy of my doctor father, Edward. Among his other credentials, he was the FCC Chairman under President Kennedy, recipient of the Medal of Freedom from President Obama, and -- perhaps most important of all -- father of three daughters including the oft-mentioned around these parts, Nell.
He also hired Barack Obama to work at his Sidley Austin law firm in Chicago, where Michelle Robinson was also employed.
If you want to read the article by Newt that Tribe refers to, you can find it here. It's very short and exellent. But the quick summary is that he suggests Judge Amy Berman require all the prosecution lawyers in the Roger Stone case explain why their sentencing recommendation got changed in order to get to the bottom of the truth before making her decision -- and if she doesn't get a satisfactory answer, that she call Attorney General William Barr.
