Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand now joins Warren's call for Barr to resign.
Attorney General Barr has to resign. Today, once again, he has shown that he is more interested in protecting the president than in working for the American people. We can not trust him to tell the truth, and these shameful propaganda demonstrations have to stop.

Once she asked Barr, Senator Kamala Harris said she should resign.

Q: "Should I resign?"

Multiple Democratic presidential candidates of 2020 are not happy with the testimony of Attorney General William Barr before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Before the hearing concluded, Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) requested her resignation, saying that "she is not a credible head of the application of the federal law" and, due to that, "she should resign".
AG Barr is a shame, and his alarming efforts to suppress Mueller's report show that he is not a credible head of federal authorities. It should resign, and based on the real facts of the Mueller report, Congress should initiate a process of impeachment against the President.

The former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development and Mayor of San Antonio, Texas, Julian Castro shared similar sentiments. Instead of asking Barr to resign, he wants Congress to oust the Attorney General and President Donald Trump.
In trying to deceive the American people, Attorney General Barr introduced himself to Congress and lied under oath. Congress should hold this administration accountable, beginning with the launch of indictment investigations against William Barr and Donald Trump. pic.twitter.com/y7F4QZvzY9

Democrats are upset with Barr because of a report on Tuesday night Washington Post Y New York Times with a letter from special attorney Robert Mueller to Attorney General William Barr, saying he was not happy with the way the media interpreted the key findings of the Russian investigation.
The left is trying to turn Mueller's letter so that it appears that Barr mischaracterized the Special Adviser's report.
