More than eleven hundred former Deep State operatives have signed a petition calling for AG Bill Barr to resign before he starts ripping them a new butt with his investigation against the FBI and DOJ Deep State.
They are using the excuse that Barr railed against a sentencing recommendation that was way out of line with reality.
When prosecutors met with Barr and associates, they claimed to be wanting a normal sentence but once in court they asked for the unheard prison sentence of 7 to 9 years for a process crime.
Rapists, child molesters and in some cases murderers get a shorter sentence than that. But, the Deep State thinks it is a just punishment for anyone having anything to do with President Trump.
They are also urging whistleblowers to come forward with whatever sixth or seventh hand information they have so that Adam Schiff can reprise his role as King of the Clowns. It would be like a going away party for Nancy Pelosi who will be thrown out of her Speaker’s job the first of 2021.
The letter also called on current DOJ officials to “report” abuses, resign in protest and to withdraw from cases that involve “misconduct.”
More than 1,100 former Justice Department employees signed a public letter Sunday urging Attorney General William P. Barr to resign over his handling of the case of President Trump’s longtime friend Roger Stone — and exhorted current department employees to report any unethical conduct.
“Mr. Barr’s actions in doing the President’s personal bidding unfortunately speak louder than his words,” the Justice Department alumni wrote in the letter posted online. “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.”
Signatures for the letter were gathered by Protect Democracy, a group that has been critical of Barr’s handling of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation into Russian election interference and Trump.
The letter acknowledges there is little chance the signatories’ criticism will lead to Barr’s departure, adding, “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 letter called on DOJ officials to follow the “heroic” example of the four Mueller prosecutors who resigned from Roger Stone’s case “and be prepared to report future abuses to the Inspector General, the Office of Professional Responsibility, and Congress; to refuse to carry out directives that are inconsistent with their oaths of office; to withdraw from cases that involve such directives or other misconduct; and, if necessary, to resign and report publicly — in a manner consistent with professional ethics — to the American people the reasons for their resignation.”
