DOJ Spokesperson Responds To Rumors Of Barr’s Resignation

Department of Justice spokesperson Kerri Kupec took to Twitter Tuesday night, ”Addressing Beltway rumors: The Attorney General has no plans to resign.”

The tweet was in response to media rumors that Attorney General William Barr is considering resigning his position because of President Trump’s tweets about the Roger Stone case. The rumors sprang up mainly due to articles released by the Associated Press and Washington Post, with the Associated Press reporting that Barr was confiding to those close to him about his potential resignation.

The Washington Post reported: “The administration officials said Barr seemed to be sharing his position with advisors in hopes that the president would get the message that he should stop weighing in publicly on the Justice Department’s ongoing investigations.”

In an interview with ABC News last week, Barr denied that the president has ever asked him to do anything in a criminal case, but noted he found the president's public comments about the Justice Department and its investigations to be frustrating.

“And I’m happy to say that, in fact the president has never asked me to do anything in a criminal case. However, to have public statements and tweets made about the department, about our people in the department, our men and women here, about cases pending in the department, and about judges before whom we have cases, make it impossible for me to do my job and assure the courts and the prosecutors in the department that we’re doing our work with integrity.”

Despite rumors to the contrary, it would appear that the current official statement is that the Attorney General does not plan to resign his post at this time.
