Blumenthal Says AG Barr Has ‘Obligation to Resign’

May 2, 2019

On CNN’s Situation Room Wednesday, Sen. Richard Blumenthal called on Attorney General William Barr to resign over his handling of the Mueller report.

“What I heard today was continuing evasive, disingenuous, and outright deceptive answers to our questions,” Blumenthal said. “I think that Attorney General William Barr ought to recognize that he has an obligation to resign here. I have called it at the very least for him to recuse himself from those 12 to 14 ongoing investigations into the President of the United States, in other jurisdictions. He declined. In fact, he ducked the question entirely, as to whether he has had any conversations with the White House about them. He said he couldn’t recall. A response that is very difficult to believe. So I think he should resign,” Blumenthal added.
