Over 1,100 former Justice Department officials are calling for Attorney General William Barr to resign in the wake of the DOJ’s decision to ask for a shorter prison sentence for Trump confidante Roger Stone.
“Barr’s actions in doing the President’s personal bidding unfortunately speak louder than his words,” the group of ex-officials wrote in a letter posted on Medium.
“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.”
“Such behavior is a grave threat to the fair administration of justice,” they write. “A person should not be given special treatment in a criminal prosecution because they are a close political ally of the President.”
Stone, 67, was recommended a 7-9 prison sentence by Mueller prosecutors last week over a process crime — more jail time than what rapists and murderers receive on average.
Barr’s DOJ rebuked their recommendation, prompting the four prosecutors to resign from Stone’s case.
The letter goes on to call on other bureaucrats within Washington to follow the prosecutors’ “heroic example.”
