MoveOn Responds to Trump AG Bill Barr’s Defense of No Labels

Washington, D.C.In response to an opinion article in which former Trump Attorney General Bill Barr attempts to provide political cover for No Labels and their reckless third-party campaign that will only help elect Donald Trump, MoveOn Political Action Chief Communications Officer Joel Payne released the following statement:

“MoveOn doesn’t need lectures about democracy and fairness from a man who misled the nation about the Mueller Report, dropped federal charges against Trump ally Michael Flynn, and personally ordered police and federal agents to clear out innocent protesters outside the White House. For years, Bill Barr encouraged and enabled Donald Trump while doing Trump’s personal and political bidding. It’s telling that someone like Bill Barr feels compelled to step up and act as a spokesman for No Labels’ dangerous and reckless efforts. Just as he did nearly every day he served as Attorney General, Barr’s latest act on the national stage – providing political cover for No Labels – is empowering Trump.”


MoveOn is celebrating 25 years of people-powered progress this year. For more than a generation, MoveOn has built independent political power and mobilized the left to elect Democrats and enact progressive change. MoveOn is a bulwark against the radical right, channeling our collective voices to drive progressive foreign policy, protect democracy, and advance justice for all.
