Many former federal prosecutors have spoken out against Attorney General William Barr, while current federal prosecutors have understandably remained silent. The attorney general’s comments at Hillsdale College, however, compel me to speak out as well. While I am a federal prosecutor, I am writing to express my own views, clearly not those of the department, on a matter that should concern all citizens: the unprecedented politicization of the office of the attorney general. The attorney general acts as though his job is to serve only the political interests of Donald J. Trump. This is a dangerous abuse of power. From his misleading summary of the Mueller Report, to his selective intervention in cases against political allies of the president, to his accusation that victims such as George Floyd are being used as mere “props” by those calling for racial justice, to his baseless claims about mail-in ballots, William Barr has done the president’s bidding at every turn. For 30 years I have been proud to say I work for the Department of Justice, but the current attorney general has brought shame on the department he purports to lead.

Mr. Herbert is, of course, entitled to his own stupid opinion, however...if he ever allows his opinion to affect his work his superiors would be justified in kicking his ass out into the streets.

You really believe that, don't you?

Certainly. Nothing Mr. Herbert wrote is untrue.

As a matter of fact, Mr. Herbert elected not to mention many of Barr's further transgressions for the sake of brevity.
