The Democrats are back to making coordinated attacks against Republican Attorney General William Barr in the hopes of getting him to resign.
Representative Adam Schiff went on CNN’s “New Day” to complain that, “I was one of those making the case he never should have been confirmed and certainly not confirmed unless he committed to recusing himself from an investigation where he had an obvious bias. And now we’re seeing that bias playing out time and time again.”
“He should have never been given the job under these circumstances. Now I think in the interest of the department, he should step down, but I have no expectation that he will,” Schiff continued. “What we are seeing is anyone who gets close to Donald Trump becomes tainted by that experience, and the fundamental conundrum is how do you ethically serve a deeply unethical president? And as we are seeing with Bill Barr and I think as we saw with Rod Rosenstein, you can’t.”
In what appears to be a planned move, shortly after Schiff’s remarks Senator Elizabeth Warren jumped on Twitter to echo the sentiment.
These Democrats are spitting into the wind however as Barr has constantly defended his actions regarding the Mueller report and shows no signs of stepping down.
