The president can be capricious when it comes to personnel decisions. But pray he does not fire AG Bill Barr before the term ends. It would not be a smart move. Thus, administration sources say the president is miffed, but was placated by the naming of John Durham as a Special Counsel. But Trump’s annoyance lingers.
FNC: “President Trump Thursday wouldn’t say whether he still has confidence in Attorney General William Barr two days after the AG said the Justice Department hadn’t seen widespread election fraud that could overturn the results.
‘Ask me that in a number of weeks from now,’ Trump told a reporter. ‘They should be looking at all of this fraud.’ Barr told the Associated Press Tuesday, ‘To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election.’ When he heard that, Lou Dobbs hurled insults at Barr.
Haaretz: “The comments, which drew immediate criticism from Trump attorneys, were especially notable coming from Barr, who has been one of the president’s most ardent allies. Fox News host Lou Dobbs accused Barr on his show Tuesday of joining ‘the Deep State and the Resistance,’ adding ‘he is either a liar or a fool or both. He may be – perhaps compromised.’ ” Oh dear God Dobbs, get a grip.
Lou Dobbs absolutely loses it over Bill Barr saying there's no evidence of widespread voter fraud, accusing Barr of joining "the Deep State and the Resistance" before saying this:

The AG, who had echoed the president’s claims that mail-in balloting wasn’t secure, said both the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security have looked into election fraud charges and come up empty. Empty? Hmmm, that situation seems to be changing.
Two of the capable attorneys working for Trump’s official team, as opposed to the two loons who have gone rogue, rejected Barr’s analysis on Tuesday, saying again that they have “ample evidence of illegal voting in at least six states,” which they say Barr isn’t read in on. Why the hell not? You can’t blame a guy for not knowing something if he doesn’t have info you’re just sitting on.
Barr’s “opinion appears to be without any knowledge or investigation of the substantial irregularities and evidence of systemic fraud,” attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis said in a statement. Then if you have the knowledge give it to him. If not, what else can he honestly say?
