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.

PJ Media report: SHOCKER! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lago Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative

Published

PJ Media’s Kevin Downey Jr. has dissected a Washington Post report regarding findings from the raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate. “Shocker! WaPo Update About Mar-A-Lag0 Raid Doesn’t Fit the Narrative” Downey Jr.’s report is titled.

“Remember when the FBI raided Trump’s home supposedly looking for “nuclear secrets” a few months back? Guess how that turned out?” the article begins.

I’ll let the quislings at the Washinton Post spell it out:

Federal agents and prosecutors have come to believe former president Donald Trump’s motive for allegedly taking and keeping classified documents was largely his ego and a desire to hold on to the materials as trophies or mementos, according to people familiar with the matter.

In other words, Trump was keeping souvenirs, as everyone else does.

Funny how WaPo sat on that story until after the midterms, right?

But wait, there’s more!

That review has not found any apparent business advantage to the types of classified information in Trump’s possession, these people said. FBI interviews with witnesses so far, they said, also do not point to any nefarious effort by Trump to leverage, sell or use the government secrets. Instead, the former president seemed motivated by a more basic desire not to give up what he believed was his property, these people said.

The WaPo also found no evidence that Trump was looking to “leverage, sell or use the government secrets.”

They threw the idea in near the very end that they still might come up with something juicy:

The people familiar with the matter cautioned that the investigation is ongoing, that no final determinations have been made, and that it is possible additional information could emerge that changes investigators’ understanding of Trump’s motivations. But they said the evidence collected over a period of months indicates the primary explanation for potentially criminal conduct was Trump’s ego and intransigence.
