Report: Attorney General Bill Barr is Considering Stepping Down Over President Trump’s Tweets
A report from Breaking 911 has indicated that Attorney General Bill Barr is considering resigning from his post due to his anguish over President Donald Trump’s tweets.
The Department of Justice has officially denied the report:
Addressing Beltway rumors: The Attorney General has no plans to resign.

Big League Politics has reported on Barr’s anger after President Trump called out the deep state railroading of Roger Stone on his Twitter account:
“I think it’s time to stop the tweeting about Department of Justice criminal cases,” Barr said to ABC News Chief Justice Correspondent Pierre Thomas.
“I’m not going to be bullied or influenced by anybody … whether it’s Congress, a newspaper editorial board, or the president,” Barr said. “I’m gonna do what I think is right. And you know … I cannot do my job here at the department with a constant background commentary that undercuts me.”
This came in response to President Trump calling out the deep state’s railroading of his long-time confidant Roger Stone.
Meanwhile, Barr is also reviled by Democrats and the radicalized Left because they see him as being too pro-Trump in how he wields power as AG:
More than 1,100 former Department of Justice prosecutors and employees signed a letter released Sunday demanding that Attorney General Bill Barr resign from office.
The letter takes a staunchly partisan Democratic tone, leaving no doubt as to their partisan allegiances of the high-ranking government employees who have signed it. The letter claims that Barr is “doing the President’s personal bidding” for clamping down on a culture of corruption present within elements of the powerful government entity.
The liberal bureaucrats are especially upset with Barr’s intervention in the criminal case of a former Trump campaign advisor, Roger Stone. Stone was set to be sentenced to a draconian and lengthy prison sentence for process crimes that amount to no more than lying to congress, a witch hunt that had many James Comey-style elite DOJ employees smitten with glee. Barr intervened to overturn the sentencing goals of prosecutors tasked with the case, leading to several of them resigning in protest.
The moralistic and sanctimonious letter claims that Barr is somehow harming the credibility of the already controversial department, but the DoJ alumni that have openly endorsed it seem largely unaware that their own endorsement of a staunchly partisan and anti-Trump statement does far more to harm the already- questionable credibility of the department.
While many would mourn Barr’s departure from the administration, his record as AG does not live up to the hype. Barr has currently put exactly zero deep state criminals behind bars for their attempted coup against Trump. He has also declared publicly that deceased pedophile Jeffrey Epstein killed himself, despite the mountain of evidence that shows otherwise.
Barr leaving the administration may result in his replacement with an individual who will actually drain the swamp, not just pay lip service to the idea.
