President Donald Trump announced Monday afternoon that Justice Department Department Attorney General William Barr will by leaving office shortly before Christmas.

Trump, who had disagreements with Barr’s handling of the DOJ’s investigation into the FBI’s malfeasance in the Russia probe, as well as Barr’s conflicting point of view that there was no evidence of wide spread election fraud, said he had met with Barr and discussed his resignation.

“Just had a very nice meeting with Attorney General Bill Barr at the White House,” Trump tweeted. “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.”

The next in line will be Deputy Attorney General Jeff Rosen, who will become the acting attorney general, added Trump.

Trump also noted that Richard Donoghue “will take over the duties of Deputy Attorney General.”

Barr said in a letter to the president, which was posted by Fox News that he was proud to have served in his administration and that he would be leaving his office on December, 23.

Barr and Trump found themselves at opposite ends of the spectrum on the issue of election fraud. Barr had said earlier this month that the DOJ found no evidence of widespread election fraud.

Barr became a major disappointment to those supporting Trump and failed to hold former Obama federal law enforcement, government and intelligence officials accountable for the unlawful and now debunked investigation into claims that Trump’s 2016 campaign and administration had conspired with Russia.

He noted in his letter to Trump, however, that Russia hoax investigation by the FBI “was the effort to cripple, if not oust your administration, with frenzied and baseless accusations of collusion with Russia.” Still, Barr did little to hold those who attempted to oust Trump from office accountable.

Barr replaced another divisive Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, who early on had recused himself from the Russia investigation that led to former Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

Federal Reserve Economist on hidden camera: ‘we don’t want Trump to be in the government’

Hidden Camera captures Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve talking about Jerome Powell’s legacy as “somebody who held the line against like, Trump.” According to hidden camera footage of Aurel Hizmo, principal economist at the Federal Reserve, the U.S. agency could have fixed inflation a while ago but refused to do so for fear of hurting President Joe Biden’s re-election efforts.

Hizmo told an undercover reporter that the Fed stopped raising the rates to tackle inflation because it could cause a recession that would likely end Biden’s 2024 campaign.

The influential agency responsible for maintaining a stable monetary system appears to not just be establishing interest rates, but to be setting policies for desired social outcomes. “Under Powell, the Fed has changed to think about equity issues, like racial issues, think about wealth inequality as part of the mandate, as part of the things we are following. Think about climate change.” Aurel Hizmo, Principal Economist at the Federal Reserve, who prior to working at the Fed was an Assistant Professor helps write speeches for Federal Reserve Board Chair Jerome Powell for the Federal Open Market Committee.

Hizmo says “Trump is just a crazy person” and conservatives are “dumb” as he describes to OMG’s American Swiper Citizen Journalist a politicized Federal Reserve Board where Powell has promoted ESG issues like climate change and “wants to be remembered in history” “as a savior.” But shhh…don’t tell anyone because Hizmo says: “I’m just really worried that I’m saying stuff that’s classified…It’s all classified.”
