William Barr, the Attorney General of the United States has been at odds with President Trump in recent weeks after disputing the President’s claims about election fraud and for keeping his investigation into Hunter Biden silent before the 2020 election.
Today, Trump said Barr tendered his resignation effective as of December 23rd.
“Just had a very nice meeting with Attorney General Bill Barr at the White House. 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,” Trump said. “Deputy Attorney General Jeff Rosen, an outstanding person, will become Acting Attorney General. Highly respected Richard Donoghue will be taking over the duties of Deputy Attorney General. Thank you to all.”
Barr commended Trump for his accomplishments despite the non-stop barrage he endured during his four years from the liberal media, the Democrat party, and America’s far left.
“Your record is all the more historic because you accomplished it in the face of relentless and implacable resistance,” Barr said. “Your 2016 victory speech in which you reached out to your opponent and called for working together for the benefit of the American people was immediately met by a partisan onslaught against you in which know tactic no matter how abusive and deceitful was out of bounds.”
“Few could have weathered these attacks much less forge ahead with a positive program for the country,” Barr said. “You built the strongest and most resilient economy in American history one that has brought unprecedented progress to those previously left out.”
“During your administration, the Department of Justice has worked tirelessly to protect the public from violent crime, worked closely with leaders in Mexico to fight the dangerous drug cartels and supported the men and women of law enforcement,” Barr added.
