Former Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. is calling the four federal prosecutors who quit the Roger Stone case “heroes.”
“Jonathan Kravis, Aaron Zelinsky, Adam Jed and Michael Marando — Department of Justice heroes,” Mr. Holder tweeted on Wednesday. “I support them and all of the men and women of goodwill at DOJ. Be tough. Do not compromise your values; there can be no compromise with those who act corruptly.”
The prosecutors left the Stone case in protest after Justice Department officials reduced their recommended prison sentence for Stone, a longtime confidante of President Trump.
Mr. Holder was attorney general under President Barack Obama.
