Bill Barr is AG no more, as predicted two days ago by some of us. OK, he will remain on the payroll, clearing his office, until Dec 23.
Did he resign or was he fired?
Still licking trump’s boots on his way out … or did trump’s staff write this letter?
Yes, that letter makes no sense. trump has been fuming at Barr since election day for not doing enough to help him steal the election.
According to the letter, he will officially leave on Dec 23. trump should do the same, don’t you think?
See diary “Bill Barr reportedly said about trump - "It’s the deposed King ranting” for what transpired over the weekend.
Bill Barr reportedly said, according to CNN’s Jaimie Gangel - “none of this matters— it’s the deposed King ranting. Irrelevant to the course of justice and to Trump’s election loss.”
Poll results for the question in the diary -
Was Barr reflecting the sentiment of the republican establishment? Is the republican party about to ditch trump? What is their long game?
Barr is probably resigned to his fate, now that he has no reputation left to speak of. Just last year, Barr fatalistically said — “Everyone dies and I am not, you know, I don't believe in the Homeric idea that you know, immortality comes by, you know, having odes sung about you over the centuries, you know?” as a pathetic way to defend the shredding of his reputation in the service of trump.
Will this widen the growing schism between the GOP and trump supporters? Let’s hope so.
Now that the electoral college has voted, and there will soon be a new acting AG (who?), what fresh hell will trump unleash?
