Attorney General William Barr has considered resigning over President Trump’s continued tweets regarding Justice Department investigations, according to multiple reports Tuesday night.

The Washington Post, which first reported the news, citing three administration officials, reported that Barr told people close to the president he was considering leaving over Trump’s tweets, which have continued unabated since Barr addressed them last week.


Trump publicly backed Barr earlier Tuesday, telling reporters: “I have total confidence in my attorney general. I think he’s doing an excellent job. He’s a strong guy.”

“I do make his job harder,” Trump added. “I do agree with that. I think that’s true.”

Republican leaders also publicly expressed support for the attorney general on Tuesday, with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsay Graham (R-S.C.) and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) calling him a “man of the highest character and unquestionable integrity” in a joint statement.

    DOJ has already denied the report.

    I agree with Rick Wilson. Pure bovine excrement. I’ll also add my opinion that this is part of the Trump never-ending reality tv show. Manufactured drama. Entertainment for the fans.
