    I remember former intelligence officials claiming Trump colluded with Russia.

    This is not formal intelligence professionals, number 1 it is his own group that he is over the DOJ. So you really think if your own group is trying to force you to resign that he won't????

    And he did collude with Russia. You may be thinking about "Conspiracy against the United States."
    A lot of evidence on that too, but just not enough to convict.
    I'm not shocked that this is news to you.

    He won't. These are democrat holdovers or exes that are spewing the party line.

    The exact ones he was hired to deal with. They aren't Republicans, but democrats.

    I hope he fires all of them in the Justice Department.

    He will not have an impeachment trial, if he does the democrats will lose, again.

    They already look stupid, this would only confirm that they are more stupid.

    Do you not understand that the words "collusion" and "conspiracy" are 2 different things? The Mueller investigation didn't look for collusion. Old news.
    Keep living the fantasy. Oh ya, let's not forget "the report did not exonerate the president."
    Next you're gonna tell me that Trump isn't impeached.

    (CNN)More than 1,110 former Justice Department officials who served in Republican as well as Democratic administrations posted a statement Sunday calling on Attorney General Bill Barr to resign.

    "Mr. Barr's actions in doing the President's personal bidding unfortunately speak louder than his words. Those actions, and the damage they have done to the Department of Justice's reputation for integrity and the rule of law, require Mr. Barr to resign. But because we have little expectation he will do so, it falls to the Department's career officials to take appropriate action to uphold their oaths of office and defend nonpartisan, apolitical justice," the officials wrote in a statement.

    The rare statement from the officials -- mostly former career prosecutors, but also some former political appointees -- came in the wake of an extraordinary week at the Justice Department. In just one week, career prosecutors withdrew from a case after Barr overruled their sentencing recommendation, the attorney general pushed back against the President in an unusual interview and separately ordered an examination of politically charged cases involving those close to President Donald Trump.

    The statement went on to say career attorneys should report any troubling actions they see to the department's Inspector General.

    The Justice Department declined to comment when reached by CNN Sunday. Barr has so far not given any indication that he is considering stepping down from his current role.

    Attorney general's actions spark outrage and unease among US prosecutors

    Th upheaval at the Justice Department began when all four federal prosecutors who took the case against Roger Stone to trial withdrew from the case Tuesday afternoon after Barr overruled their sentencing recommendation hours after the President criticized it on Twitter.

    Barr on Thursday claimed he couldn't do his job with Trump publicly commenting on sensitive investigations, but insisted the Justice Department had acted appropriately, and, without explanation, suggested prosecutors' recommended sentence for Stone was too harsh.

    contin

    In an interview with ABC News, Barr defended the department's rank-and-file.
    "I cannot do my job here at the department with a constant background commentary that undercuts me," the attorney general said.

    In an unusual move on Sunday, Judge Amy Berman Jackson, who is overseeing Stone's case, called for a "scheduling" conference call with attorneys in the case on Tuesday, ahead of the sentencing hearing set for later this week, according to court documents.

    Barr should have known that Trump would ruin him too.

    Collusion is not a crime, conspiracy is. The report did not exonerate the president, nor, did it claim his guilt in crime.

    Now then, if he had committed conspiracy, an illegal plot, to have aid from Russia in his campaign, i.e. collusion, whatever Mueller said about it, the impeachment trolls would most certainly have listed it in their articles. Especially since the Constitution require a crime to impeach.

    You have heard by now that they did not. Like a grand jury, the house can impeach a ham sandwich if the majority party wants to.

    However, Trump is not guilty of any impeachable offense, signed, sealed, and delivered.

    Next you will tell me the fantasy you have about one of two 80 year old white guys, one never a democrat, a socialist, and the other, a billionaire Republican who just became a democrat trying to buy the nomination, is going to defeat Trump. I don't think so.

    Barr isn't ruined, except in the eyes of democrats who forget that Eric holder did the same things, and more, like being held in contempt of congress.

    Perhaps you don't remember Holder saying he was Obama's wingman. Do you know what a wingman does?

    CNN, the official news network of the democrat party, is a terrible source. They weren't bothered by Holder at all. He was one of their boys.

    Barr is embarrassed by Trump, but he can't do anything about Trump's continuing interference.

    Barr should have known Trump hurts everyone he uses.

    So, he is embarrassed by Trumps tweets, I am too.

    You have absolutely no evidence that Trump interferes with Barr, in his job. An opinion voiced is not interference. Does not Trump have the right of free speech like every other citizen?

    Lets take the absolute worst scenario, that Trump tells Barr what to do.

    You and the democrats seem to think that the Justice Department is an iindependent agency that operates totally separate from the rest of government.

    You and they are wrong. The Attorney General and the Justice department are under the control of the president. They are of the executive branch and all of the executive branch fall under the president. He, and only he is the judge of their performance.

    Though it is a bad idea, and gives the enemy ammunition, he has the right to be involved in the justice department as much as he chooses.

    Barr has the right to resign if he doesn't like it, he won't , because it isn't happening.

    Barr is over a department that has been carefully packed with ideological democrats for decades. These are the ones who resigned with their hair on fire because Trump voiced his opinion. They, and those who signed the infamous letter, and the democrats want to deny Trump having control as much as possible over the government he was elected to run.,

    It is all about fatally wounding Trump, because the people were stupid to elect him, and he cannot be allowed to do the job those stupid people want him to do, the democrats know better. It is a continuing coup d'eta, nothing less.
