All Of a Sudden, William Barr Says He’s Considering Quitting: Report

The controversy surrounding President Trump’s interference with the Justice Department took a dramatic turn Tuesday night as Attorney General William Barr told White House officials that he is considering stepping down over President Donald Trump’s tweets about Justice Department investigations, according to The Washington Post.

Citing three administration officials, The Post reported that Barr “told people close to President Trump, both inside and outside the White House,” about his intentions of quitting his post at the DOJ, “foreshadowing a possible confrontation between the president and his attorney general over the independence of the Justice Department.”

Trump has constantly defied Barr’s requests, both public and private, to keep quiet on matters of federal law enforcement. It was not immediately clear Tuesday if Barr had made his posture known directly to Trump.
