President Donald Trump and his Attorney General William Barr now appear to be on very shaky ground.
As the frayed ties between them look to be quickly going from bad to worse.
The president went public with a clear message to Barr last week. Trump let him know it was time for action.
Yet Barr it seems won’t be swayed by public sentiment. Which is apparently a kind of split.
Trump was and still is hoping to see charges filed against top Democratic Party officials. He claims they spied on his 2016 presidential campaign. There has been no evidence to support this claim as of yet.
Trump also claims that Barr needs to take action against the left pushing a fake Russian collusion narrative. And tags former Commander-in-Chief Barack Obama as part of that conspiracy.
Raw Story told:
In an interview with Newsmax TV that will air Wednesday night on “Greg Kelly Reports,” President Donald J. Trump is refusing to confirm whether Attorney General William Barr will remain in his position should he manage a second term win.
Trump reportedly said, it’s “too early” to determine his staffing question surrounding Barr and added, “I’m not happy with all of the evidence I have, I can tell you that. I’m not happy.”
Along with Obama’s ex-Vice President Joe Biden. Plus one-time Sec. of State and 2016 Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
With Obama era CIA Director John Brennan serving as a back channel of communications.
Barr appointed U.S. Attorney John Durham to investigate roots of the Russian probe in spring, 2019. Since then Durham has secured one guilty plea.
That coming from past FBI attorney Kevin Clinesmith who confessed to falsifying documents used for obtaining a surveillance warrant.
The investigation plagued by accusations of political pressure. Top prosecutor Nora Dannehy stepped down from Durham’s team over the summer. While reports indicate an expectation there would be more significant results by Election Day.
Could this ultimately spell curtains for the notorious alliance between Trump and Barr?
