***Today’s Call To Action***

BARR HAS CORRUPTED THE OFFICE OF ATTORNEY GENERAL 


Fake Attorney General William Barr acts as Trump’s personal defense attorney and fixer. He has politicized and corrupted the DOJ to serve Trump’s political agenda,  and actively protects the racist law enforcement system that brutalizes people of color.

 Here are some examples – Barr:

  • Attacked, misrepresented, and redacted the Mueller report attempting to support Trump’s claim of exoneration.
  • Attacked the report of the independent Inspector General who found no bias in the Mueller report, then supported Trump when he fired him.
  • Announced DOJ investigations into those who investigated Trump, promoting false right-wing conspiracy theories.
  • Ordered a lenient sentence for one of Trump’s convicted political allies and halted the investigation of another.
  • Refused to testify or provide information to Congress after his department withheld the whistleblower complaint.
  • Denied the existence of systemic racism in law enforcement and refused to investigate it.
  • Warned communities to show proper respect for law enforcement or “find themselves without the police protection they need.” 
  • Violently suppressed Americans protesting the murder of George Floyd with a militarized force that he assembled, some of whom wore no insignia or ID.

Barr is unfit to hold the office of Attorney General; demand that Congress investigate his abuse of power at the DOJ.

Investigate Bill Barr!

Disbar Bill Barr!

Demand Barr’s Resignation! 


**ACTION ONE: CALL OUR U.S. SENATORS**

SAMPLE SCRIPT FOR SENATORS MERKLEY and WYDEN:

“My name is [–] and I’m a constituent from [city], Oregon [zip code]. 

William Barr has no allegiance to the American people and serves only Donald Trump. He has politicized and corrupted the Department of Justice and is not fit to be Attorney General.  He should be impeached, but at the least his acts of political interference and misuse of the DOJ must be investigated.

It’s also up to Congress to lead against the systemic racism in law enforcement that Barr denies and refuses to address.  Congress must pass Representative Pressley and Omar’s resolution to condemn police brutality.

Moreover, please tell Senator [  . . .  ] to call for both Barr and Trump’s resignation. Publicly. Loudly. Every day. 

Thank you.”
