Attorney General William Barr announced his resignation on Monday in a letter to President Trump.
In the letter, Barr massaged Trump’s ego and announced he “will spend the next week wrapping up a few remaining matters important to the administration, and depart on December 23.”
The Wall Street Journal reported over the last few days that Barr personally ordered the DOJ to keep the Hunter Biden investigation under wraps.
From the WSJ on Monday, “Barr Kept Hunter Biden Probes From Public to Avoid Election Politics”:
ATTORNEY GENERAL WILLIAM BARR, IN THE WEEKS BEFORE NOVEMBER’S ELECTION, INSTRUCTED PROSECUTORS AND SENIOR COLLEAGUES TO PREVENT WORD OF INVESTIGATIONS INTO HUNTER BIDEN FROM BECOMING PUBLIC AND KEEP THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT OUT OF CAMPAIGN POLITICS, ACCORDING TO PEOPLE FAMILIAR WITH THE MATTER.
MR. BARR TOOK MORE STEPS THAN PREVIOUSLY REPORTED TO INSULATE THE INVESTIGATIONS, DESPITE CALLS FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP AND REPUBLICAN ALLIES TO ANNOUNCE A PROBE INVOLVING PRESIDENT-ELECT JOE BIDEN’S SON HUNTER.
