2,000 Former DOJ, FBI Officials Call on Barr to Resign Over Michael Flynn Case
Officials protest our current Attorney General’s willful miscarriage of justice after the most egregious example of partisan abuse of office since McConnell held the Garland nomination.
Nearly 2,000 former Justice Department and FBI officials on Monday signed an open letter strongly critical of Attorney General William Barr’s decision to abandon the prosecution of Michael Flynn, calling the action “extraordinarily rare, if not unprecedented.”
If anyone else who is not a friend of the president “were to lie to federal investigators in the course of a properly predicated counterintelligence investigation, and admit we did so under oath, we could be prosecuted,” the letter said.
The letter calls on Barr to resign and encourages Congress to formally censure Barr over “his repeated assaults on the rule of law in doing the President’s personal bidding rather than acting in the public interest.”
