REPORT: Attorney General Barr spokesperson posts statement
The spokesperson for Attorney General William Barr posted a brief statement on Twitter Tuesday evening, in response to a claim by the Washington Post that Barr was considering throwing in the towel.
Citing “three administration officials close to President Trump” who spoke “on the condition of anonymity,” the Washington Post reported that Barr said he is considering quitting over Trump’s tweets about Justice Department investigations.
After the Washington Post published their report, multiple other mainstream news outlets covered the report as well.
Kerri Kupec, Director of Communications & Public Affairs for the Justice Department, tweeted in response, “Addressing Beltway rumors: The Attorney General has no plans to resign.”
