Impeach and Remove Attorney General Barr
Late on a Friday night, William Barr’s Justice Department sent out a press release stating that Geoffrey Berman, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, was “stepping down” from his position.
But this announcement came as a total shock to Berman, who responded: “I learned in a press release from the Attorney General tonight that I was ‘stepping down’ as United States Attorney. I have not resigned, and have no intention of resigning, my position[.]”
That’s right: Barr blatantly lied to the American people and tried to strong-arm Berman into abandoning his role -- so that he could fill it with a Trump lackey.
Berman has consistently fought for justice and upheld the rule of law -- despite Barr’s conversion of the DOJ into a partisan Trump protection machine. For example, Berman’s office prosecuted Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen, who went to prison -- and Berman is currently investigating top Trump confidant Rudy Giuliani.
It’s no surprise that Trump wanted Berman out -- and that he sent Barr to do his dirty work. And the day after Berman denied his resignation, Barr had Trump fire Berman -- though Berman fought to ensure his successor would continue to investigate Trump's allies.
Barr has time and time again shown that he is unfit to serve as Attorney General. He dropped all charges against Trump’s former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, even after Flynn pleaded guilty… he brazenly misled the public about Robert Mueller’s findings… and his Department of Justice tried to bury the whistleblower complaint that led to Trump’s impeachment.
Barr’s attacks on Berman are yet another example of his willingness to damage our nation’s system of justice to protect President Trump. Common Cause called for Barr's impeachment and removal at the end of last year  -- and now, we're renewing that vital call.
If you agree, add your name to demand that Congress respond to Barr’s many abuses of power -- by impeaching him and removing him from office.

Attorney General Barr forced Geoffrey Berman -- an independent-minded U.S. attorney whose office has led several corruption investigations into President Trump’s inner circle -- out of his role, while trying to lie to the American people about it.
Barr has repeatedly proven that he is unfit to serve: ignoring the rule of law, politicizing the DOJ, and doing President Trump’s bidding at the expense of real justice. Now, Congress must stop him before he can do any more harm -- by impeaching Barr and removing him from office.
