President Donald Trump is the most corrupt president in our lifetimes and we’re witnessing more evidence today, Senator Ben Sanders has said.

Sanders, in a tweet, added that Trump is not meant to be a political tool of the president.

“Trump and Barr have utter contempt for the rule of law. Congress must initiate an investigation of this firing immediately,” he added on Saturday.

The former Democrat presidential aspirant was responding to a New York Times tweet, reporting that “Attorney General William Barr said President Trump fired Geoffrey S. Berman, the US attorney in Manhattan, who had led inquiries into Trump circles”.
