Bill Barr is facing pressure to resign from more than 1,000 former Justice Department employees.

In a public letter, 1,143 DOJ alumni said the attorney general should step down from his post due to his handling of the case with Roger Stone, a longtime friend of Donald .

'Each of us strongly condemns President 's and Attorney General Barr's interference in the fair administration of justice,' the letter reads, and welcomes other former employees to join in signing the petition.
