Nearly 2000 former DOJ officials call for AG Barr to resign over Flynn case
ABC News
5-6 minutes

It's not clear how the judge in Flynn's case will react to DOJ's reversal.

Nearly 2000 Justice Department officials have signed onto a letter calling for Attorney General William Barr to resign over what they describe as his improper intervention in the criminal case of former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn.

Last week, the DOJ moved to drop charges against Flynn who had pleaded guilty twice to lying to the FBI about his contacts with the former Russian ambassador during the presidential transition.

The letter, signed mostly by former career officials in the department, accuses Barr of joining with President Trump in "political interference in the Department’s law enforcement decisions."

"Attorney General Barr’s repeated actions to use the Department as a tool to further President Trump’s personal and political interests have undermined any claim to the deference that courts usually apply to the Department’s decisions about whether or not to prosecute a case," reads the letter, which was organized by the group 'Protect Democracy'.

Make it 20,000 or 200,000 former employees, it will make no difference.

"Former DoJ officials" are a dime a dozen in an agency that large.  Those signatures and $2 will get you a cup of coffee.
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

There are over 119,000 employees for the DOJ currently.

Likely much more than that are former employees of the DOJ.

So 2000 likely is less than 1%.

This is nothing.

This is a letter from the exact same group claiming to be 2,000 "former DOJ Officials" that demanded Barr resign because of Roger Stone.  Here's the February letter linked from an ABC story in February:

https://medium.com/@dojalumni/doj-alumni-statement-on-the-events-surrounding-the-sentencing-of-roger-stone-c2cb75ae4937

And here's the letter linked in this ABC News story about General Flynn:

I think we can safely assume this is the same caliber of bullshit in both letters.
We need to re-coin the expression, "Press Bias" to "Media Bigotry."
I will NOT comply.

If Barr were worth a good BM, 50% of the 120,000 employees would be purged.  Obama fatten up the ranks of the government employees big time as POTUS.  You could scale back all agencies by 50%, and this government would not skip a beat. All vacated positions should be red shirted, with no exception.

What I have witnessed is an extreme case of diminishing returns with the number of people working in the different agencies, etc, including and particularly the CDC.  The project work that fits in the category of do this, but if we do not do this, no one will care constitutes about 50% of what they are doing.  In fact, I laughed heartily when several senators today thanked the medical folks for all the hard work they have done in conjunction with this virus, and the fact is the CDC has done little, little to nothing.  Only in the past month have they come alive to work on this virus.  Almost all of them sat at home doing very little prior to a month ago.  They quit doing contact tracing which made no sense to me early on.  I understand stopping in breakout cities like New York, but there were areas of the country where there were only a handful of infected folks, and contact tracing would have been extremely helpful.

Also, the CDC sat quiet when idiots like Gov Cuomo made the decision to put folks infected with the virus in nursing homes, which when I first heard it, I thought totally asinine.  Where was the CDC guidance then?  Nonexistent, that's where.

To say I am not the least bit impressed by Dr Fauci or Dr Redfield would be an understatement.  Both these characters are deficient in their roles.

Honestly, I haven't been impressed with Barr....no one has been indicted yet.  Lots of evidence is coming forth; he's a lot of talk and no action.
I Believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union, one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution, to obey its laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies.

If the former DOJ employees were still employed there, that would make a fine
beginning list for terminations. Best practice is to clear the decks when taking
a new spot. This is an old lesson. Bring in your old team as the old ones have
a different master.

Officials? Like they were or are in some elevated position to know?

I am a results guy.  So far, not one indictment.  I listened for years about the great Trey Gowdy, 'never lost a case as prosecutor', etc, etc.  And the RESULTS of all his investigations....a BIG FAT NOTHING!!!!

Do not hold your breath in regard to folks being indicted....FOR ANYTHING!!!

And Trump betrayed justice when he said at the start of his administration that 'Hillary Clinton was to be left alone'.  Her and Bill should both receive the Rosenberg treatment for Uranium One...Left alone.  Trump lost some credibility when that happened.
