Following media and Democrat noise about Attorney General William Barr’s decision to reduce the sentencing recommendation for Trump associate Roger Stone on seven counts of obstruction, witness tampering, and making false statements to Congress, former DOJ public affairs deputy director Ian Prior said that no one at the Justice Department is taking calls for Barr to resign seriously.
Reports that 1,100 former DOJ employees had signed a letter demanding Barr resign are just “faux outrage,” Prior said, noting that even 2,000 signatures would only represent .001 percent of all former DOJ employees currently living.
“It’s really just ex-Obama officials funded by liberal donors that are trying to resist the Trump administration with litigation and statements like that,” he added.
