President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Wednesday morning to congratulate Attorney General William Barr and slam the now-former prosecutors in the Roger Stone case, who all withdrew from the case Tuesday night after Barr’s went over their heads and intervened for a shorter sentence.

Following some patented color commentary on the New Hampshire presidential primary and an attack on federal judge Amy Berman Jackson, who’s presiding in Stone’s trial, Trump tweeted his praise for Barr “for taking charge of a case that was totally out of control and perhaps should not have even been brought.”

Stone, 67, is a decades-long friend of Trump and was a close adviser during the 2016 election and beyond.

Trump then turned his ire on the prosecutors. “Rogue prosecutors maybe? The Swamp!” Trump tweeted.
