Sen. Kamala D. Harris, a Democratic presidential candidate on the Judiciary Committee, on Thursday joined calls for Attorney General William P. Barr to resign, saying his biases and dishonesty have proven he’s not fit for the job.

“He is clearly biased. He is clearly reluctant to share the truth with the United States Congress. And clearly unable to perform his duties as the attorney general of the United States,” the California senator said in an interview with CNN’s “New Day” show.

“I think he should resign. I think he has made it very clear that one, he is not able to perform his duties, not only in terms of doing it with the interests of the people in mind and being unbiased and fair and honest,” she continued.

“I would say he also has performed basically in a way that suggests that he’s not a professional in the way he does his work and doesn’t take his duties seriously. So I think he should resign,” she finished.

Ms. Harris would not answer whether she would pursue impeachment of Mr. Barr if he didn’t resign.
