Justice correspondent for The Nation and frequent MSNBC guest Elie Mystal went on an epic rant during Saturday’s AM Joy, during which he called for thousands of prosecutors across the country to resign in protest of interference by Attorney General William Barr on behalf of President Trump in cases pertaining to the Trump administration.

Host Joy Reid brought up Trump using tweets and other pressure in “manipulating” and “warping” the legal system on behalf of his allies.

“Look, I don’t care what he Tweets at who, or what Barr said,” Mystal replied. “Look, it’s all theater, they’re all liars, I do not care what they say. What I care about is what we’re going to do about it.”

“Everybody here knows that what Barr is doing is immoral, illegal, and unjust. We’ve known that since the moment that he was appointed. We’ve known that since November when he gave a speech to the Federalist society announcing his view of executive power. We know what Barr is,” he said, expanding on the point. “So what are we going to do about it?”

Mystal brought up the four prosecutors who resigned over interference from the top at the Justice Department with regard to the sentencing recommendation in the Roger Stone case.
