WASHINGTON—Four federal prosecutors quit the case against Roger Stone on Tuesday after the U.S. Department of Justice dialed down its sentencing recommendations for the longtime ally of President Donald Trump. A federal jury convicted Stone last year of lying to Congress and obstructing special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Stone was accused of concealing his attempts to discover WikiLeaks’ plans to release stolen emails damaging to 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
