Sen. Elizabeth Warren called for Attorney General William Barr to resign after the Justice Department recommended a shorter sentence for President Trump’s former political confidant Roger Stone.

“Americans of all political stripes should be gravely concerned about the corruption that pressures federal prosecutors to give sweetheart deals to criminals who do their crimes on behalf of Donald Trump,” Warren tweeted. “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.”

The article goes on to state the following:

Federal prosecutors initially told a judge this week that Stone, who was convicted of lying to Congress and witness tampering, should serve at least five years in prison.

Warren said the country is watching a “descent into authoritarianism,” according to The Hill.

From The Hill:

“I have to say, I know everybody wants to talk about the horse race,” Warren said on CNN’s “Anderson Cooper 360,” on her performance in the Tuesday night New Hampshire primary, “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 of Donald Trump’s inappropriate influence, and the attorney general overturning a sentencing of Donald Trump’s cronies, right in front of our eyes we are watching a descent into authoritarianism,” she added. 

“This just seems like a moment to me [when] everybody should be speaking up,” Warren said on CNN. “Presidential candidates should be speaking up, people around this country should be speaking up.”
