Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), Richard Blumenthal (D-CT), Edward Markey (D-MA), Patty Murray (D-WA), Jeff Merkley (D-OR), Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), Ron Wyden (D-OR) and Mazie Hirono (D-HI) sent Barr a scathing letter ripping the Justice Department’s “unethical political intervention” in the case.

“The interference in this case by you or other senior DOJ officials working under you is a clear violation of your duty to defend fair, impartial, and equal justice for all Americans,” they wrote. “As a result, we call on you to resign immediately.”

The Democrats accused Barr of meddling “in a clearly political fashion” to shield Stone on Trump’s behalf after the political adviser was found guilty of obstructing Congress and witness tampering in Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.......................................

1. Kinda disappointed to not see either CA senator on the list ...

Not that Barr will do anything with this letter ... other than maybe use it for TP ...

I do appreciate the effort by these 9 however.

And I hope he knows that this will go down on his PERMANENT record.

8. That's a better avenue. Calling trump appointed rats might get blocked, but

Gov't lifers will come forward. Public servants will respond like they did in the House hearings.

It'll keep the truth coming out, it'll show the trump rats in the worst light (rats hate light), more people will reach an "I've had enough" moment.

Unfortunately the best tools we have are the House, investigations, relentless pursuit and the truth. Keep pounding away, Dems.
