Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) on Wednesday called for Attorney General William Barr to resign in light of the Justice Department’s move to ask for a shorter sentence for longtime Trump ally Roger Stone.

“Congress must act immediately to rein in our lawless Attorney General,” Warren, a 2020 presidential candidate who has previously called for Barr’s resignation, said on Twitter. “Barr should resign or face impeachment. And Congress should use spending power to defund the AG’s authority to interfere with anything that affects Trump, his friends, or his elections.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Four federal prosecutors arguing the case against Stone resigned en masse on Tuesday ahead of the Justice Department’s request to ask a judge for a lighter sentence than the one they had originally proposed.

Warren blasted out a series of Twitter posts Wednesday, voicing her outrage against President Trump and Attorney General Barr, and declared the Trump administration is an “authoritarian regime like Putin’s Russia.”

See her entire statement in the tweets below:

Donald Trump is shredding the rule of law in this country. His AG overruled career prosecutors to reduce the sentence for his buddy Roger Stone after Stone committed crimes to protect him. Every Republican who voted to acquit Trump for his corrupt actions enabled and owns this.

Donald Trump can continue his corrupt rampages and vendettas because elected Republicans do nothing. They lack the courage and backbone shown by four career prosecutors who stepped down rather than facilitate the Attorney General’s corrupt scheme. But we are not powerless.

Congress must act immediately to rein in our lawless Attorney General. Barr should resign or face impeachment. And Congress should use spending power to defund the AG’s authority to interfere with anything that affects Trump, his friends, or his elections.

I am the only candidate to propose an independent DOJ task force to investigate crimes by Trump administration officials. Every Democratic candidate must commit to it—so Trump officials know they will be held accountable by career prosecutors once he is out of office.

Abusing official power to protect political friends and attack opponents is common in authoritarian regimes like Putin’s Russia. Trump and Barr’s conduct has no place in our democracy. To end it, Congress must act—and the American people must hold them accountable in November.
