Nearly 2,000 former Justice Department employees called on Attorney General William Barr to resign his position after the DOJ decided to drop the case against former Trump National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.
The decision to drop the case was made after internal memos were released that showed the FBI agents investigating the case did not have real evidence against Flynn but kept the investigation open to see if they could entrap Flynn into lying.
Flynn did not lie to the agents, but later pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI after they threatened to indict his son as well.
“We continue to believe that it would be best for the integrity of the Justice Department and for our democracy for Attorney General Barr to step aside,” the former employees wrote in a statement. “In the meantime, we call on Congress to hold the Attorney General accountable.”
The fact that so many former DOJ employees can’t see that Barr was following the rule of law is a testament to the existence of the deep state that many have said has tried to bring Trump down throughout his presidency.
