Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who is presiding over Roger Stone’s trial, has complete discretion in sentencing and is fully independent of President Donald Trump, explained John Malcolm, senior legal fellow at the Heritage Foundation, vice president of the Institute for Constitutional Government, and director of the Meese Center for Legal & Judicial Studies.

Malcolm joined Wednesday’s edition on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight with host Rebecca Mansour and special guest host Ed Martin.
