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.

San Francisco voters have officially recalled extreme progressive Chesa Boudin. The San Francisco Chronicle noted the event as a “historic recall.”

“The election, closely-watched across the nation, came after months of intense debate over criminal justice and public safety in San Francisco” writes the Chronicle.

The voters are “frustrated with a dysfunctional city” and horrendous crime rates. They saw “an elected official unwilling to acknowledge he was at least partly responsible for the problems – and cast him out.”

Boudin received an overwhelming 60% vote in favor of recall. San Francisco voters “embrace being labeled as progressive” but “decided they wanted a more traditional crime-fighter as district attorney and delivered what will be viewed nationally as a blow to efforts to reshape criminal justice” adds the Chronicle.
