Today’s Action: Defund Attorney General William Barr

One of Trump’s most recognizable leadership styles is his tendency to surround himself with yes-men, and get rid of those who cross him. It’s especially easy to spot because it’s a historical mainstay in most dictatorships.

Attorney General William Barr has been Trump’s crooked sidekick since 2019, when Barr took over after Jeff Sessions was forced out for recusing himself from the Russia investigation. Barr learned from Sessions that to keep his job, he needed to do whatever the president asked of him no matter how corrupt.

And in February, Trump’s longtime friend and associate Roger Stone had been recommended a 9-year prison sentence for witness tampering, obstruction of justice, and lying to Congress to cover up Trump’s crimes – but then, the Justice Department overruled the recommendation and the four prosecutors working on his case quit in protest. Why? How? Trump tweeted and Barr answered.

The Office of the Attorney General is supposed to protect the American people, not the personal interests of the president. Call or email your Members of Congress and tell them to defund William Barr’s office until he recuses himself from all investigations into Trump and Trump’s associates. And, ask them to investigate Barr as well.

Barr’s list of interfering at Trump’s request goes on. Early last year, he passed his big first test, purposefully misleading Congress and the American public about the damning findings in the Mueller Report in order to protect Trump. Remember that? It was pretty huge.

Barr also gunned to get Trump’s former national security advisor Michael Flynn’s sentence shortened (after lying to the FBI), and fired DoJ prosecutor Jessie Liu who angered Trump for not going after his nemesis Andrew McCabe (who investigated Trump’s connection to Russia).

We can’t vote Barr out. But we can shut him down and shed light on all he’s done.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Members of Congress and demand they support an investigation into William Barr’s misconduct and defund his office until he agrees to recuse himself from all investigations into Trump and his associates.
