Chairman Nadler Statement on Resignation of Attorney General William Barr

Washington, D.C. – Today, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) issued the following statement:

“From misleading the American public about the Mueller report to his dangerous efforts to overturn COVID safety measures, from his callous disregard for civil rights to his rampant politicization of the Justice Department, William Barr was willing to do the President’s bidding on every front but one.  Barr refused to play along with President Trump’s nonsensical claims to have won the election.  He is now out as Attorney General one month early.

“In 37 days, President-Elect Biden will be sworn into office.  Whomever Joe Biden chooses as the new Attorney General will have a tremendous amount of work to do to repair the integrity of the Department of Justice—and I, for one, look forward to being a partner in that project.  The work must begin without delay.”
