DOJ Official Reports AG Bill Barr May Resign, Here’s What Barr Had to Say
Attorney General Bill Barr and President Trump, as well as the Trump legal team; and Sidney Powell along with Lin Wood, have all seen things differently in regard to the election fraud.
While it seems clear to me that there was a lot of shady business to say the least, the evidence seems to point toward fraud having occurred.
AG Barr seems to disagree with that statement and said that he has not seen any evidence of widespread fraud that could change the results of the election.
Now, there are reports swirling that Barr may be considering resigning. He would be doing so with just weeks left if he indeed believes that Joe Biden will be the next president.
The New York Times reported,
Attorney General William P. Barr is considering stepping down before President Trump’s term ends next month, according to three people familiar with this thinking. One said Mr. Barr could announce his departure before the end of the year.
It was not clear whether the attorney general’s deliberations were influenced by Mr. Trump’s refusal to concede his election loss or his fury over Mr. Barr’s acknowledgment last week that the Justice Department uncovered no widespread voting fraud. In the ensuing days, the president refused to say whether he still had confidence in his attorney general.
One of the people insisted that Mr. Barr had been weighing his departure since before last week and that Mr. Trump had not affected the attorney general’s thinking. Another said Mr. Barr had concluded that he had completed the work that he set out to accomplish at the Justice Department.
…Mr. Barr has not made a final decision, and the prospect of him staying on through Jan. 20 remains a possibility, the people familiar with his thinking cautioned.
This is now being reported by others as false information.
The DOJ on Tuesday attempted to clear up Barr’s statement, with a spokesperson saying that a number of media outlets have “incorrectly reported that the Department has concluded its investigation of election fraud.”
“Some media outlets have incorrectly reported that the Department has concluded its investigation of election fraud and announced an affirmative finding of no fraud in the election,” the spokesperson said. “That is not what the Associated Press reported nor what the Attorney General stated. The Department will continue to receive and vigorously pursue all specific and credible allegations of fraud as expeditiously as possible.”
It really wouldn’t make sense for Barr to resign this close to January 20th.
