Attorney General William Barr is one of Donald Trump’s most trusted advisors.
But rumors swirled that Barr reached a breaking point.
And William Barr threatened to quit over one thing Trump did. Here’s what happened next.
Attorney General Barr sat of an interview with ABC news where he asked the President to stop tweeting about Justice Department cases.
The President – as well as many Americans – were upset with what they saw as a double standard where prosecutors terrorized the President’s associates into prison while looking the other way and letting their Deep State buddies escape scot free.
Barr has put in place numerous investigations into the Russian collusion hoax and the Michael Flynn case and Barr feared the President may be undermining any criminal findings they discover by publicly demanding Barr jail Deep State conspirators.
The fake news wants to invent tension between Barr and the President because they worry Barr’s investigations will hit close to home and expose the Russian collusion criminal conspiracy as well as the misconduct of the FBI in framing Michael Flynn.
That’s why the Washington Post dropped a bombshell story claiming Barr told the President’s advisors that he was considering resigning if the President continued to Tweet about ongoing Justice Department matters.
The Washington Post exclusively reported:
Attorney General William P. Barr has told people close to President Trump — both inside and outside the White House — that he is considering quitting over Trump’s tweets about Justice Department investigations, three administration officials said, foreshadowing a possible confrontation between the president and his attorney general over the independence of the Justice Department.
So far, Trump has defied Barr’s requests, both public and private, to keep quiet on matters of federal law enforcement. It was not immediately clear Tuesday if Barr had made his posture known directly to Trump. 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.
But this story was published by a Russian collusion hoaxer and the Department of Justice quickly went on the record to dent the story as fake news.
