WASHINGTON D.C.- Now that things have fallen apart in their attempt to remove President Trump from office, they’re setting their eyes on Attorney General William Barr.
Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said Wednesday on CNN that Barr should resign or be impeached over the Justice Department’s reversal on Roger Stone’s sentence following a tweet posted by President Donald Trump.
“I have to say I know everybody wants to talk about the horse race, but the thing that is really getting to me right now is what’s going on over at the Justice Department.
The whole notion that we have people in our Justice Department resigning because Donald Trump’s inappropriate influence and the attorney general overturning a sentencing of Donald Trump’s cronies.
You know, right in front of our eyes, we are watching a descent into authoritarianism. And this just seems like a moment to me everybody should be speaking up.”
A simple count of the fingers on our hands when comparing Stone’s sentence to others makes for a staggering comparison.
Roger Stone, a first-time offender with no criminal record at all, was sentenced to 9 years for lack of candor, or lying.
People committing armed robberies average 3 to 4 years; rapists average only 6-7 years, and the prosecutors, whom have all resigned this week, pushed for extenuating circumstances and increased time spent in prison for Stone, 67, to the point where the man would die in prison.
Add to that strange bit of news about the prosecutors and the fact that the jury foreman in this trial posted anti-Trump opinions and posts on social media while serving on the jury.
Elizabeth Warren added to her diatribe:
“Understand we should all be calling for the Attorney general to resign. What Barr has done should mean that we are demanding a resignation, and if that guy won’t resign, then the House should start impeachment proceedings against him.”
The left is calling for another impeachment push on President Trump related to this same matter. The idea of the attorney general remarking about an insane sentence for a first-timer and non-violent crime isn’t anything new.
Why wouldn’t an AG comment on an unusual sentence in a high-profile trial?
Another thought is that President Trump could simply pardon Roger Stone and the whole subject goes away, except for that loud shrieking noise of Democrats revolting over involvement by the AG and president.
Barr isn’t the only “Trumpster” she wants gone.
Strongly announcing her position on abortion, and ripping conservatives and other pro-life personnel from the administration, Elizabeth Warren has announced that one of her first tasks as president would be to remove or “weed out” every pro-life government employee or appointee set in place by President Trump.
Senator (D – MA) and Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren has a plan to reverse the actions President Donald Trump has taken to protect the rights of unborn babies, including removing pro-life government employees from office.
In her “Restoring Integrity and Competence to Government After Trump” plan, Warren explains how, if elected, she would “weed out” the pro-life employees who Trump appointed to federal agencies, the pro-abortion outlet Rewire News reports.
These include several important U.S. Department of Health and Human Services leaders who work to protect the lives and freedoms of all Americans, including those not yet born.
Rewire identified HHS Secretary Alex Azar, Roger Severino and Diane Foley specifically as “radical anti-choice” officials who could be ousted under Warren’s plan.
According to Warren’s plan, her administration would “ask for the resignations of all political appointees, including U.S. Attorneys, save only those positions necessary to preserve continuity and protect national security during the transition period.”
This would be a gift to the abortion industry, which is dumping tens of millions of dollars into the 2020 election. As Rewire reports:
Among the steps Warren would take include preventing Trump’s political appointees from “burrowing” into career positions at federal agencies like the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), which today is controlled by activists hostile to reproductive health care…the burrowing of radical anti-choice and anti-LGBTQ Trump administration officials has long been a concern among abortion and LGBTQ rights advocates.
Though not typically highlighted among Trump’s pro-life accomplishments, his appointments of pro-life leaders to his administration have made a huge impact for life.
For example, Severino, the director of the Office for Civil Rights under HHS, has been leading efforts to restore religious freedom to pro-life doctors, nurses and other medical workers.
Recently, Severino’s office has been advocating for a pro-life nurse in Vermont who said her employer basically tricked her into helping abort an unborn baby.
Warren or any other of her fellow Democrat presidential candidates could erase these gains and jeopardize the most basic rights of present and future Americans. All of the top Democrat presidential candidates support unrestricted abortions through all nine months of pregnancy and want to force taxpayers to pay for them.
During a November presidential debate, Warren said she believes “abortion rights are human rights,” and she will “fight” for abortion if elected president.
Her Medicaid for All plan also would force American taxpayers to pay for the killing of unborn babies. Warren consistently has said she supports taxpayer-funded abortions without restriction. She also opposes even modest limits on abortion after unborn babies are viable.
