Sixteen prosecutors assigned by the Justice Department to monitor the election write a letter calling out William Barr for using the DOJ for political purposes.

The bipartisan group urges Barr to rescind his order for federal prosecutors not involved in election security to investigate claims of voter fraud. That order broke the longtime protocol of not interfering in matters related to an election.

The bipartisan coalition of federal “District Election Officers” said Barr’s marching orders “is not based on fact.”

“It was developed and announced without consulting non-partisan career professionals in the field and at the department. Finally, the timing of the memorandum’s release thrusts career prosecutors into partisan politics,” the prosecutors wrote.

The letter was co-signed by 16 assistant US attorneys from 15 out of the 44 jurisdictions that were chosen by the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division to monitor the Nov. 3 general election.
