Attorney General Barr may resign

Make sure to let us know what you think... we now have comments turned ON below the article!

There has been quite a bit of back and forth between President Trump and Attorney General William Barr the last week or so. Barr has been working on various issues in the DOJ and President Trump has been tweeting on subjects related to those issues.

The president’s tweeting touched on the recommended sentencing of Roger Stone. Former Mueller prosecutors recommended that Stone get nine years for lying to investigators when he was caught up by the Mueller investigation.

President Trump thought the recommendation was too harsh and tweeted as much. Barr was already was moving to reduce the recommendation but the president’s tweet made it look like Barr was just doing the president’s bidding.

Barr expressed some frustration with the situation, telling ABC News Chief Justice Correspondent Pierre Thomas, “I think it’s time to stop the tweeting about Department of Justice criminal cases.”

The swamp fights back

Meanwhile, back in the swamp, more than 1,000 former DOJ prosecutors and employees signed a petition demanding that Barr resign over the Stone controversy.

The signers included an investigator that was named in the Horowitz report. The online petition read,  “Mr. Barr’s actions in doing the President’s personal bidding, unfortunately, speak louder than his words. Those actions, and the damage they have done to the Department of Justice’s reputation for integrity and the rule of law, require Mr. Barr to resign.”

The left has been targeting Barr since he said the “S word” (spying) in relation to the FBI’s Crossfire Hurricane operation in a congressional hearing, back in the spring of 2019. Barr’s insistence that he be independent is admirable and should lend him credibility as his investigations begin to yield some fruit.

We can’t afford to lose Barr

Barr has been doing excellent work. According the Washington Examiner, “In recent weeks, Barr has established new rules for launching investigations into political candidates, requiring they be approved by the heads of the FBI and DOJ. He also set up a process outside of DOJ headquarters for analyzing the information Giuliani is digging up overseas…”

Barr does not cave to the progressive swamp creatures that are constantly accusing him of being corrupt, biased, and the president’s yes-man, but there are signs that he may resign if President Trump insists on undercutting him with public discussion or tweeting of DOJ matters. According to the Washinton Post:

Three administration officials said, 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.

But it looks like the Washington Post got it wrong. They might want to check their sources.  The Director of Communications for the DOJ, Kerri Kupec, tweeted that Barr has no plans to resign.

Addressing Beltway rumors: The Attorney General has no plans to resign.

This is good news from the DOJ, because if Barr were to step down, the whole country would be the poorer for it, especially since none of the Crossfire Hurricane misdeeds have been settled, nor has the Ukraine matter been sorted out.
