It's Time to Defund Attorney General Bill Barr

You may have seen that, on February 11, all four prosecutors who were working on Roger Stone’s criminal case withdrew in protest from the case. One of those prosecutors resigned from the Department of Justice completely. Roger Stone, the deeply corrupt former campaign adviser to Donald Trump, has been convicted of obstruction of justice, lying to Congress, and witness tampering. The four prosecutors working on his case had originally recommended to the judge that Stone be sentenced to 9 years in prison. Then, all of a sudden, they all withdrew.

Why? Good old-fashioned corruption. The Attorney General of the United States himself, William Barr, personally intervened to try to score a lighter sentence for Stone, who is still beloved by Trump. This is not a normal thing for the Attorney General to do. It is an extraordinary lapse in our democratic system that runs counter to the entire purpose of the Department of Justice, the agency that Barr heads. But Barr did it, because Donald Trump tweeted that he wanted it done. 

The Department of Justice is not a private law firm. The Attorney General is not the president’s personal lawyer. The Attorney General and the Department of Justice are supposed to represent the interests of the United States, not the personal interests of Donald Trump. Yet Bill Barr is exploiting his position to run favors for the president. 

Not even Richard Nixon and his cronies were this flagrant. Not only did Barr personally intervene in Roger Stone’s case, he also tried to get a lighter sentence for Michael Flynn, Trump’s former National Security Adviser, who pled guilty to lying to the FBI in 2017. And if that’s not bad enough, Barr removed another top prosecutor at DOJ, Jessie Liu, apparently because she angered Trump by declining to prosecute Andrew McCabe, a former deputy director at the FBI and one of Trump’s top Twitter targets, who got on Trump’s bad side by investigating his ties to Russia. 

It is not normal for the President of the United States to personally interfere with the Department of Justice in this way, and it is not normal for the Attorney General to go along with it.

Bill Barr is the most corrupt Attorney General in American history. He has no business serving as the Attorney General of the United States. But booting him out of office will be next to impossible. That’s why we need Congress to not only investigate Barr, but to defund his office at the Department of Justice until he (and all the other Trump appointees working in the department) recuses himself from any investigation related to Donald Trump or his associates. 

In other words, we need to defund Bill Barr.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer has already sent a letter to DOJ’s inspector general (the agency’s internal watchdog that investigates fraud within the department) demanding an investigation into Barr’s misconduct. Every senator should be on the record supporting an investigation into Barr, and they should all publicly support defunding Bill Barr until he stops subverting our democracy for Trump’s benefit.

What are the asks for your House representatives?

There’s a way to hold Barr accountable for his behavior: by defunding Barr’s office at the Department of Justice. Call your representative and:

  • For Democratic representatives, tell them you have their back in investigating ongoing misconduct on the part of Attorney General Bill Barr, and demand they support defunding Barr’s office (where Barr and high-level DOJ appointees work) until he and all other Trump appointees at the department recuse themselves from any Trump-related investigations. 

  • For Republican representatives, tell them it’s time to finally stand up for our democracy. Demand that they support investigations into Attorney General Bill Barr, and demand they support defunding Barr’s office (where Barr and high-level DOJ appointees work) until he and all other Trump appointees at the department recuse themselves from any Trump-related investigations.

What are the asks for your senators?

Every Senator should support an investigation into Trump’s politicization of the Department of Justice, and Bill Barr’s misconduct. Call your senators and:

  • For Democratic senators, demand that they support investigations into Bill Barr’s misconduct, and publicly support defunding Barr’s office until he recuses himself from any investigation or prosecution relating to Trump or any of Trump’s co-conspirators.

  • For Republican senators, demand that they, at long last, stop selling out our democracy to protect Trump. Demand that they support investigations into Bill Barr’s misconduct, and publicly support defunding Barr’s office until he recuses himself from any investigation or prosecution relating to Trump or any of Trump’s co-conspirators.
