Barr has considered resigning over Trump tweets about DOJ: reports

Attorney General William Barr has considered resigning over President Trump’s continued tweets regarding Justice Department investigations, according to multiple reports Tuesday night.

The Washington Post, which first reported the news, citing three administration officials, reported that Barr told people close to the president he was considering leaving over Trump’s tweets, which have continued unabated since Barr addressed them last week.

Justice Department spokeswoman Kerri Kupec pushed back on the reports Tuesday night, calling them “Beltway rumors” in a tweet and stating that Barr “has no plans to resign.”
