Barr asked prosecutors to explore charging Seattle mayor over protest zone: report
By Rebecca Klar - 09/16/20 09:31 PM EDT

Attorney General William Barr asked Justice Department prosecutors to explore charging Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan (D) over a protest zone in the city, The New York Times reported Wednesday.

Barr asked prosecutors in the department's civil rights division to explore charging Durkan during a call with prosecutors last week, the Times reported citing two people briefed on those discussions.

Barr asked the attorneys to explore charging the Democratic mayor over allowing some residents to establish a police-free protest zone near the city’s downtown for weeks this summer amid demonstrations over police brutality and racial injustice, the Times reported.


During the call, Barr also reportedly encouraged federal prosecutors to charge protesters with sedition, according to the Times. The Wall Street Journal first reported on Barr’s remarks about sedition Wednesday.
