    1,100 former prosecutors call on Barr to resign

    More than 1,100 former prosecutors and other DOJ officials call on Attorney General Bill Barr to resign


    US Attorney General William Barr.

    2/16/20
    More than 1,110 former Justice Department officials who served in Republican as well as Democratic administrations posted a statement Sunday calling on Attorney General Bill Barr to resign. "Mr. Barr's actions in doing the President's personal bidding unfortunately speak louder than his words. Those actions, and the damage they have done to the Department of Justice's reputation for integrity and the rule of law, require Mr. Barr to resign. But because we have little expectation he will do so, it falls to the Department's career officials to take appropriate action to uphold their oaths of office and defend nonpartisan, apolitical justice," the officials wrote in a statement. The rare statement from the officials -- mostly former career prosecutors, but also some former political appointees -- came in the wake of an extraordinary week at the Justice Department. In just one week, career prosecutors withdrew from a case after Barr overruled their sentencing, the attorney general pushed back against the President in an unusual interview and separately ordered an examination of politically charged cases involving those close to President Donald Trump.
    And there you have it. Barr is doing incalculable damage to the Justice Department and US rule of law. He is a heat-seeking missile aimed at the heart of American democracy.

    He knows that. He just can't honestly deal with it.

    Easy to see who wants to gamble everything to get Trump out of office and get rid of Barr because he is doing just about what Holder did for Obama.

    The DOJ should advance the presidents policy objectives, not his political objectives.
