I think it is as accurate as we are going to read since I do not believe Barr will ever trash Trump, and visa-versa:
WASHINGTON — Attorney General William Barr is resigning, confirming speculation that he would leave his top cabinet post amid mounting criticism of his performance from President Trump.
“Just had a very nice meeting with Attorney General Bill Barr at the White House. 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,” Trump tweeted Monday.
The president added: “Deputy Attorney General Jeff Rosen, an outstanding person, will become Acting Attorney General. Highly respected Richard Donoghue will be taking over the duties of Deputy Attorney General. Thank you to all!”
Trump recently began expressing frustration with Barr’s Justice Department for failing to bring charges against his political enemies, including Hillary Clinton, for their role in the investigation into his 2016 campaign, telling Fox News he was “not happy.”
But it was Barr’s declaration last week that the Justice Department had uncovered no evidence of widespread voter fraud, as repeatedly claimed by Trump, which angered the commander in chief.
“To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election,” Barr told the Associated Press last Tuesday.
Speaking to reporters in the Oval Office two days later, Trump accused Barr of not looking “very hard.”
“He hasn’t done anything, so he hasn’t looked,” the president said, calling the probe a “disappointment.”
When asked if he had confidence in his attorney general, Trump declined to comment, saying, “Ask me in a couple of weeks from now.”
Reports began surfacing this week that Barr, 70, was considering stepping down in the final weeks of the Trump administration.
According to the New York Times, Barr first discussed the matter with associates shortly after Election Day, when it became clear that Joe Biden had won.
The paper reported that had Trump won a second term, he would have liked to stay on as attorney general for an unspecified amount of time.
