Left Wing Group Organized Barr Attack Letter

(Editor’s Note: ‘The New York Times reports ‘Protect Democracy’ is the nonprofit behind a recent letter signed by over 1,100 former US DoJ officials calling upon US Attorney General William Barr to resign.)

Protect Democracy houses a number of former Democratic staffers—including a former aide to U.S. Representative Adam Schiff (D-Calif.)—and Obama White House alumni. Ricki Seidman, last seen advising Christine Blasey Ford, is a director for Protect Democracy. 

Several NeverTrumpers also are involved with Protect Democracy; National Review columnists Mona Charen and Linda Chavez, ABC News pundit Matthew Dowd, and failed presidential candidate Evan McMullin serve as advisors.

Omidyar also funds Republicans for the Rule of Law, headed by Bill Kristol; Lawfare…; R Street, home to disgraced FBI lawyer James Baker; and Stand-Up Republic, headed by McMullin. All have been on the attack against Trump and Barr….
