After Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) went on a Twitter tirade against Attorney General Barr and all of “Trump’s criminal friends,” former Secret Service agent and conservative commentator Dan Bongino suggested “an intervention” in response to her “clear call for help.”

Waters tweeted Tuesday that she doesn’t just want the attorney general to resign, she wants him disbarred, humiliated and incarcerated because “They ALL belong in jail!”:

“It’s not enough for Barr to resign. I want him out of DOJ, disbarred, disgraced, & investigated for obstruction of justice. Barr sabotaged Mueller report, was in on Ukraine plot, & now he wants to free Trump’s criminal friends. In my estimation, they ALL belong in jail!”

Waters then called Senate Republicans pathetic “cowards” for not convicting Trump in his impeachment trial – and declared that “It’s rumored that he has mafia associations”:

“Trump using AG Barr to get his criminal friends out of jail is the tip of the iceberg. I’ll say it again: Trump will pardon Flynn, Manafort, & Stone b/c the GOP cowards in the Sen bowed to his feet. Repubs now stand for crime, corruption, autocracy, & Russia! They are PATHETIC!”


“The opposition is growing & fed judges decided Trump & Barr’s interference in the Stone case warrants emergency meeting tomorrow to talk about the danger to our country. The judges know what Barr did is not ordinary. Stay tuned for meeting & whether the judges release an opinion!”


“More than 2000 former DOJ officials courageously organized letter explaining why Barr’s interference in Roger Stone’s sentencing is dangerous & a threat to our democracy. Trump doesn’t seem to care that it’s rumored he has mafia associations, but he sure acts like a mafia boss!”

Waters’ posts are “a clear call for help,” Dan Bongino, publisher of “The Bongino Report,” replied on Twitter, calling for an intervention to help the congresswoman – because the president obviously “broke her”:

“This is a clear call for help. Someone must stage an intervention. Embarrassed and humiliated, it’s now clear that Trump broke her”
