A shocking twist in the soap opera that is Washington D.C. was reported late on Tuesday. Attorney General William Barr has allegedly told people close to him that he’s considered resigning. More specifically because of President Trump’s decision to continue tweeting about Justice Department matters.
“Everybody has the right to speak their mind. And I use social media,” Trump expressed earlier today. “But I think [Barr] he’s doing an excellent job. He’s a strong guy. I never spoke to him about the Roger Stone situation. Roger Stone, just so you know, never worked — he didn’t work for my campaign.”
Plus added, “He’s a very straight shooter. We have a great Attorney General, and he’s working very hard. And he’s working against a lot of people that don’t want to see good things happen, in my opinion.”
In addition the president announced, “But I will say this: Social media, for me, has been very important because it gives me a voice, because I don’t get that voice in the press. In the media, I don’t get that voice. So I’m allowed to have a voice.”
A Washington Post report read:
The administration officials said Barr seemed to be sharing his position with advisers in hopes the president would get the message that he should stop weighing in publicly on the Justice Department’s ongoing criminal investigations.
While the Attorney General argued to ABC News last week: “I think the essential role of the Attorney General is to keep law enforcement, the criminal process sacrosanct to make sure there is no political interference in it.”
As President Trump stated, “I have total confidence in my attorney general. I think he’s doing an excellent job. He’s a strong guy.” Still he confessed, “I do make his job harder. I do agree with that. I think that’s true.”
The news is coming fast and furious here these days. VozWire will have further details as they unfold.
