On Monday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Deadline White House,” 2020 Democratic presidential candidate former Vice President Joe Biden “absolutely” joined calls for Attorney General William Barr to resign.
Host Nicolle Wallace asked, “So, we have been talking about the letter signed by more than 2,000 former Justice Department officials of both political parties calling on Attorney General Barr to resign. Do you join their calls for his resignation?”
Biden responded, “Absolutely, positively. This has been the most — the greatest abuse of power I have ever seen at the hands of this president who has no, no sense of decency or understanding of the Constitution. And Barr’s facilitating it is beyond my comprehension. I’ve been around a long time, used to chair the Judiciary Committee for years. No president, no president, no president has ever intimidated an attorney general into abusing power as much as this man has. It’s disgusting.”
