From Sen. Mark Warner’s campaign:
Time and time again, U.S. Attorney General Barr has proven that he is more committed to protecting Trump than protecting the rule of law.
Earlier this week, The Washington Post confirmed that Barr personally gave the order to violently clear peaceful protesters demonstrating against police brutality in front of the White House. These protesters, who were demonstrating for Black lives, were forcibly cleared using violent tactics including tear gas. All for a photo op for Donald Trump.
That’s not all.
Under Barr’s guidance, the Justice Department is dropping the criminal case against Donald Trump’s first national security adviser Michael Flynn. Even after Mark Warner pressured the Administration to release intelligence proving that Flynn lied to the FBI and that he was under investigation for a very good reason, Barr has continued to advance Donald Trump’s personal interests over the interests of justice.
One thing is clear: Barr is unfit for office. He is acting as Donald Trump’s personal lawyer instead of fulfilling his duty to act in the public’s best interest.
Thank you for your support.
