The four prosecutors in the Stone case refused, and quit.
The judge will have the final say, and if you remember how Stone was a jerk during the trial, I expect he will get what he deserves (according the guidelines in the Sentencing Commission).
The Justice Dept is supposed to avoid even the appearance of involvement in politics. They're not even trying to hide it anymore. This is yet another degradation of democracy.
"By bulldozing into Roger Stone's sentencing, Donald Trump sparked a mutiny by four career prosecutors, raised fears about the impartial administration of justice and showed how his impeachment acquittal unchained an already rampant presidency.
The Justice Department's decision to water down a recommendation by its own prosecutors for Stone to serve up to nine years in prison that outraged the President sent shockwaves through Washington. It also appears to reflect Trump's redoubled determination to escalate pressure on core institutions of the US government to pursue his personal and political priorities."
