Twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton responded to the Justice Department officials' decision to withdraw from Trump advisor Roger Stone's case, saying that democracy is “in crisis."

Senior leaders at the department overruled a long prison sentence for the Stone case, igniting backlash from Democrats and the left.

Three of the officials left after Trump slammed the nine-year sentencing for the Republican operative.

“The rule of law & our democracy are in crisis,” Clinton tweeted Tuesday.

Last year, the jury found that Stone misrepresented and concealed his 2016 effort at colluding with Wikileaks and founder Julian Assange to obtain dirt on then-candidate Hillary Clinton.

He was also found to have concealed stolen emails when speaking with Trump-Russia investigators from the House Intelligence Committee in a spin-off case from special counsel Robert Mueller's two-year investigation.

Stone's charges included that he “corruptly influenced, obstructed, and impeded” the congressional investigation. 

President Donald Trump denied any role in the decision to lower the sentencing recommendation for Stone, who was found guilty of witness tampering and lying to Congress.

“I would be able to do it if I wanted. I have the absolute right to do it," Trump said.

"I stay out of things to a degree that people wouldn’t believe, but I didn’t speak to them,” the president added.

“I thought the recommendation was ridiculous. I thought the whole prosecution was ridiculous.”

Clinton also referred to Republican Sen. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee opposing three election security bills backed by Democrats.

The former security estate last year accused Republicans of employing tactics aimed at keeping women and minorities from the polls.

“This is one of those moments [where] we stand at a crossroads of our own, a crisis in democracy,” Clinton said.

Fox News contributor Donna Brazile also attacked Stone following his sentencing last year. 

“Well, he’s going to be sentenced February 6th — I hope he roasts in hell, that son of a B*tch,” Brazile blasted.
