Fmr-DOJ Official and FISA Abuser Signs Letter Calling on Barr to Resign
 
A former DOJ official who was named in the FISA abuse report is now using his moral compass to call on Attorney General William Barr to resign.

According to The Daily Caller:

A former Justice Department official who is discussed throughout the inspector general’s report on FISA abuse added his name Monday to a petition calling on William Barr to resign as attorney general.

David Laufman, who served as chief of the Justice Department’s counterintelligence and export control section through 2018, said Monday that he joined more than 2,000 former Justice Department employees who signed the petition, which was started by the anti-Trump activist group, Protect Democracy.

“Proud to join over 2000 of my fellow Justice Dept. alumni in expressing our alarm over recent actions by Attorney General Barr, and the vital importance of protecting the rule of law and the impartial, nonpartisan administration of justice,” wrote Laufman. 

The petition blasted Barr intervening in federal prosecutors’ recommendation that the Trump confidante serve between 87 months and 108 months in prison for obstructing a congressional investigation and witness tampering.

  Attorney General Barr has reiterated that he believes Roger Stone deserves jail time but the prosecutors' recommendations were excessive.
