McConnell, Graham, & McCarthy Praise ‘Selfless’ Bill Barr In Joint Statement: ‘The Nation Is Fortunate’

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), and Senate Judiciary Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) released a joint statement on Tuesday praising Attorney General William Barr amid the backlash he has received for his handling of Roger Stone’s case.

According to Politico, The three Republican lawmakers referred to Barr as a “man of the highest character and unquestionable integrity” and highlighted his previous Senate confirmations.

“Suggestions from outside groups that the Attorney General has fallen short of the responsibilities of his office are unfounded,” the lawmakers said. “The Attorney General has shown that he is committed without qualification to securing equal justice under law for all Americans. … The nation is fortunate that President Trump chose such a strong and selfless public servant to lead the Department of Justice.”

Barr has received a lot of backlash over his involvement in Stone’s case after the Justice Department revised a sentencing recommendation for Stone, after a tweet from Trump declaring that the initial sentencing recommendation of seven-to-nine years was “horrible and very unfair.”

More than 2,000 DOJ alumni have called on Barr to resign, according to the group Protect Democracy, which organized a letter.
