Open Letter, Statement

Open Letter Supporting the 100,000 Lawyers, Agents, and Staff Members of the U. S. Department of Justice

We, the undersigned, are attorneys from across the political spectrum and across the country. We write to express support for Department of Justice (“DOJ”) professionals who may face difficult choices about participating in political misuse of the DOJ in the election period ahead. The public and these professionals should know that if they stand up to such misuse — whether via resignation, public statements, or other forms of expressive dissent — they will have broad support in the legal profession, whose best traditions they will be upholding.

By word and deed, Attorney General Barr has demonstrated a willingness to politicize the DOJ by backing and helping to implement the President’s most partisan and extreme views. Mr. Trump’s refusal to commit to a peaceful transition of power – even if solely intended as another effort to discourage voters – heightens our concern about what actions the Attorney General might take that would undermine the vote and the rule of law.

The Department of Justice is a cornerstone of our legal system. Trust in its fairness and impartiality requires an Attorney General singularly dedicated to the principles espoused on its own website: 

Thomas Jefferson wrote, “The most sacred of the duties of government [is] to do equal and impartial justice to all its citizens.” This sacred duty remains the guiding principle for the women and men of the U.S. Department of Justice.

Attorney General Barr’s prosecutorial actions supporting the President’s friends and partisan interests have eroded public confidence in his commitment to impartial justice for all people. Earlier this year, Barr’s intervention in DOJ cases against presidential allies Roger Stone and Michael Flynn prompted more than 2,000 DOJ alumni to speak out in protest.  

In July, twenty-seven distinguished DC Bar members filed a disciplinary complaint against Mr. Barr. Among other things, the complaint cited his misrepresenting the law in Senate testimony defending his decision that the Mueller Report’s evidence was insufficient to charge the President with obstructing justice. The complaint also charged him with violating his lawyer’s oath to uphold the Constitution when he oversaw the use of force against peaceful protestors in Lafayette Square. The complaint stated that: “Mr. Barr has consistently made decisions and taken action to serve the personal and political self-interests of President Donald Trump, rather than the interest of the United States.”  

As the election approaches, Mr. Barr has increasingly politicized the DOJ with his public pronouncements and actions:

  • On September 14, he stated: “As an attorney general, I’m not supposed to get into politics.” He then immediately undermined that standard: “We [are] going to find ourselves irrevocably committed to the socialist path . . . if Trump loses this election. . . .”
  • On September 16, The New York Times reported that Attorney General Barr had asked DOJ prosecutors to consider filing criminal charges against the Seattle Mayor, whom President Trump had attacked for allowing a police-free zone to help calm unrest.
  • On September 17, Barr embraced one of the President’s chief campaign themes with a shocking statement, asserting that state stay-at-home measures to control coronavirus spread constituted the “greatest intrusion on civil liberties” in history “other than slavery.”
  • On September 23, Barr dishonored constitutional checks and balances by blocking DOJ officials from appearing before Congress because House Judiciary Committee Democrats had been “scolding” him at his July 28, 2020 testimony.

Further, DOJ’s impartiality has traditionally meant avoiding actions shortly before elections that might affect the outcome. Mr. Barr has indicated that he is poised to abandon that tradition by pressing his hand-picked prosecutor, John Durham, to issue an irregular “report” with partisan impact within weeks of the election. 

Additionally, Mr. Barr’s statements raise grave concern about his readiness to influence the upcoming election. He has defended the President’s threat to send law enforcement to polling places — historically done to intimidate voters. Barr’s endorsing the President’s unfounded mail-in ballot fraud claims raises red flags about potentially using DOJ in post-election litigation to undermine the vote.

We support DOJ attorneys and personnel who stand by their oaths and the Department of Justice’s duty to do justice for the public by not participating in partisan misuse of the DOJ. They honor the rule of law, our profession, and the country as we face this crucial test for our democracy.

Affirm your support of the tens of thousands
of dedicated DOJ employees
