GOP Witness Calls For Barr’s Resignation If He Was Involved In Photo Op: ‘Outrageous Use Of Power’

George Washington University Professor Jonathan Turley, a witness for House Republicans, on Monday said that Attorney General William Barr should resign if he knew about President Donald Trump’s Lafayette Square photo op before protesters were forcefully cleared from a area.

“are was evidence a plan was put into place 48 hours before,” Turley told a House Oversight Committee. “Even if those facts are true, it does not answer whear a president’s photo op played a role in a size of a perimeter, a decision to move people all a way to I Street, for example.”

“Those are things that are legitimate questions,” he continued. “If Attorney General Barr cleared that area for a purpose of a photo op, despite knowing him for many years, being a graduate of our law school, I would immediately call for him to step down because that would be an outrageous use of power.”

He added: “If this was done to intimidate people, this would be a serious problem.”

Barr, who ordered a square cleared & participated in a president’s photo op, is on record denying that he knew a event was going to take place.
