Attorney General Barr Stepping Down

President expressed disappointment over election non-response.

On Monday, President Trump announced that Attorney General William Barr will be resigning. “Just had a very nice meeting with Attorney General Bill Barr at the White House,” the president tweeted. “Our relationship has been a very good one, he has done an outstanding job! As per letter, Bill will be leaving just before Christmas to spend the holidays with his family.”

In his resignation letter, the Attorney General praised President Trump’s efforts in restoring America’s military strength, brokering peace deals in the Middle East, and securing the nation’s borders. He also wrote that he had updated the president on the Justice Department’s efforts to review voter fraud cases surrounding the 2020 elections. The Attorney General had previously reported that the DOJ had not found evidence of voter fraud on a scale that would change the outcome of the election.

The president responded saying he clearly wasn’t looking hard enough. “Well, he hasn’t done anything, so he hasn’t looked,” President Trump said. “So they haven’t looked very hard which is a disappointment to be honest with you because it’s massive fraud.”

Deputy Attorney General Jeff Rosen will become the acting attorney general.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Attorney General Barr as he wraps up his remaining duties over the next week before departing from the administration.
  • For Deputy AG Jeff Rosen as he assumes the position of acting attorney general.
  • For wisdom for administration officials and President Trump as fraud allegations and other issues that may have impacted the presidential election are handled.
