    More Than 1,100 Former DOJ Officials Press For Attorney General Barr To Step Down

    More Than 1,100 Former DOJ Officials Press For Attorney General Barr To Step Down | HuffPost
    The officials warned William Barr’s interference in criminal cases for Trump’s personal benefit is behavior one would expect to see in an autocracy.

    More than 1,100 former federal prosecutors and Justice Department officials are calling on Attorney General William Barr to resign following reports Barr and President Donald Trump intervened in the criminal prosecution of Trump’s friend Roger Stone.

    In an open letter released Sunday, the former officials say Barr broke Justice Department rules when he overruled federal prosecutors in Stone’s criminal case, seeking a far more lenient sentence than the potential nine years prosecutors originally recommended.

    “It is unheard of for the Department’s top leaders to overrule line prosecutors, who are following established policies, in order to give preferential treatment to a close associate of the President,” they said.

    In their call for Barr’s resignation, the former Justice Department officials suggested his behavior is a threat to democracy.

    How about we get on with the election.

    the stooge won't step down. the only way that he steps down is if Tweety fires him. then we'll know that his ABC interview wasn't theater orchestrated by Punkinhead, or that Punkinhead forgot that it was.

    LOL, all Obama Administration and left wing radicals who don't like being challenged or having their radical agenda opposed. If the left doesn't think the ruling is correct they protest only supporting those who support their ideology. Why is this even an issue? How has Stone affected you and the country? Such hated and such ignorance

    Don't really give a damn about your opinions as they are irrelevant to the results generated and results matter. All you are doing here is fueling the fires of hate, politics of personal destruction, class envy, and jealousy as you appeal to the radical left who are working hard to divert from results. So sad that people like you are so civics challenged that you don't understand the problem is the Congress, NOT the President. States and local governments are doing great and that really bothers big gov't liberals like you

    I feel like more candidates need to speak up about how dangerous Trump's consolidation of power really is. Separation of powers is fundamental to maintaining the republic.

    That's exactly the reasoning used by The Just Men for assassinating Julius Caesar, the Republic fell and the dictators ruled Rome. The Just Men were each hunted down and killed.
    What kind of a man is a man who has not left this world a better place?

    No one is in control.

    We just had an impeachment trial where the Senate majority leader openly stated that he would take input from the White House on how the investigation would be conducted and at least one Senator openly state that they would not be a fair juror yet voted anyway. We now have an Attorney General interfering in cases for the president as well as the president's long time friend digging up conspiracy theories and being given a direct channel to the State Department. We have multiple reports of Trump threatening anyone that doesn't toe the line and can clearly see the backlash anytime a republican politician decides to think for themselves. I realize that Trump is a republican and so you pretend to be blind but essentially blaming the House for everything tells me you might want to brush up on civics yourself.
