AG Barr isn’t happy about what President Trump just did.
While the Democrats scheme to find something to kickstart another impeachment inquiry. Attorney General William Barr and President Trump might now be butting heads.
According to the Daily Wire, AG Barr criticized President Trump for repeatedly tweeted about the sentencing of Roger Stone, which he believes interferes with him being able to effectively do his job.
“I think it’s time to stop the tweeting about Department of Justice criminal cases,” Barr said to ABC News. “Public statements and tweets made about the department, about our people in the department, our men and women, about cases pending in the department, and about judges before whom we have cases, make it impossible for me to do my job and to assure the courts and the prosecutors in the department that we’re doing our work with integrity.”
When asked if he was ready to face a possibly angry President Trump after making these comments, Barr stated, “Of course, as I said during my confirmation, I came in to serve as attorney general.”
“I am responsible for everything that happens in the department. But the thing I have the most responsibility for are the issues that are brought to me for decision and I will make those decisions based on what I think is the right thing to do, and I’m not going to be bullied, or influenced by anybody and I said at the whether it’s Congress, newspaper editorial boards, or the president,” Barr continued. “I’m going to do what I think is right and I cannot do my job here at the department with constant background commentary that undercuts me.”
