WASHINGTON – More than 1,100 Department of Justice alumnus signed a letter calling on Attorney General William Barr to resign Sunday, writing that his handling of the Roger Stone case “openly and repeatedly flouted” the principle of equal justice under the rule of law.

The letter comes after a contentious week for the Justice Department, which already faces allegations of succumbing to political pressure from President Donald Trump.

“Although there are times when political leadership appropriately weighs in on individual prosecutions, it is unheard of for the Department’s top leaders to overrule line prosecutors, who are following established policies, in order to give preferential treatment to a close associate of the President, as Attorney General Barr did in the Stone case,” the letter reads.
