In an unprecedented move on Sunday, more than 1,110 former Justice Department officials  (who had worked for both Republican and Democratic administrations) called on Attorney General to resign over this handling of the Roger Stone case.

‘Each of us strongly condemns President Trump’s and Attorney General Barr’s interference in the fair administration of justice,’ the letter reads.

The statement goes on to say:

“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.”
This caps a wild week that saw four career prosecutors resign from the Roger Stone case after Barr overruled their sentencing recommendations, seemingly at the request of Trump.
Stay tuned.
