Elizabeth Warren calls on William Barr to resign over “naked abuse of power”. Earlier, Attorney General William Barr’s attempt to oust U.S Attorney Geoffrey Berman in Manhattan backfires as calls for his resignation hieghtens.
Elizabeth Warren called on Barr to resign after the Justice Department’s botched attempt to push out U.S. Attorney Geoffrey Berman, whose office is investigating members of Donald Trump’s inner circle.
“This is a naked abuse of power. I’ve already called for AG William Barr to resign & for Congress to impeach him. Congress should pass my bill now to defund Barr’s authority to interfere with matters related to Trump, his family, & his campaign,” Warren, a Massachusetts Democrat and former presidential candidate, tweeted Saturday.

Warren shared a link to a New York Times article that reported Berman is refusing to step down.
Since taking the job in January 2018, Berman oversaw the prosecution of former Trump fixer Michael Cohen and has been investigating Rudy Giuliani, the president’s attorney and confidante. He is also reportedly investigating Deutsche Bank loans to the Trump organization and the financing of the president’s 2017 inaugural.
After William Barr announced Berman’s departure in a news release late Friday, the Manhattan prosecutor told the world he wasn’t going anywhere.
