The House Judiciary Committee released the transcript of a July 9 interview with Geoffrey Berman, the former U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York. Berman was dismissed from his position last month. The ousted U.S. attorney told the committee that Attorney General William Barr told him he would be fired if he "did not resign from [his] position." Berman alleged that Barr warned him that getting fired would "not be good for [his] resume or future job prospects." The transcript of the interview can be found here and below.
