WASHINGTON, D.C. – Just days after reports that Attorney General William Barr’s job could be in jeopardy, the New York Times is now reporting that “three people familiar with his thinking,” say Barr is now mulling whether to step down before President Trump’s first term ends on January 20, 2021.
The news comes just days after Barr told AP reporters the Justice Department had uncovered no widespread voting fraud that would affect the outcome of the election, during their investigations; a conclusion said to be premature by Trump Campaign Attorney Rudy Giuliani, since none of his witnesses were interviewed.
“With the greatest respect to the Attorney General, his opinion appears to be without any knowledge or investigation of the substantial irregularities and evidence of systemic fraud,”Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis, senior legal adviser to the campaign.

Trump was said to be “livid” following Barr’s declaration sparking at least one unnamed senior official to say the President might invoke his popular “you’re fired” attitude and ‘terminate’ the nations top law enforcement officer, however, the Times noted that it did not have details on whether a resignation would be related to Trump’s frustration.
Barr, 70, was confirmed as Attorney General in February 2019 and shorty thereafter assigned John Durham, the U.S. attorney in Connecticut, to open an investigation into the Russian Collusion hoax and determine if any wrongdoing was done under the Obama administration, investigations which as of yet have produced minimal results outside of a single guilty plea for making a false statement.
