Since the day he was confirmed to be Attorney General, William Barr has been working on behalf of Donald Trump. And the president has been happy to use him as an attack dog. The Attorney General went as far as to have the Department of Justice intervene in E. Jean Carroll’s defamation suit against Trump.
But, unfortunately for the president, there is only so much that the DOJ can do to help his election fortunes. Trump was hoping for a high profile case to be made against Joe Biden, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. Now that that hasn’t come to pass, Trump is saying that he might not want Barr back if he wins a second term.
Trump made the comments during an interview with Newsmax’ Greg Kelly. He was asked about U.S. Attorney John Bash’s announcement that no evidence of wrongdoing was found in regards to “unmasking.”
“I have no comment. Can’t comment on that. It’s too early,” Trump replied. “I’m not happy with all of the evidence I have, I can tell you that. I’m not happy.”
Okay, so now that William Barr’s bullshit investigation is over, where is he hiding?

He continued, “Personally, I think it’s ridiculous. It’s ridiculous. It’s a disgrace. I think it’s really a horrible thing that they’re allowed to get away — when they say no indictments, they actually said no indictments before the election. I had to go through elections with all those clouds over my head. But they don’t because the Republicans are so nice. Personally, I think it’s too bad. I think it’s too bad, they’re guilty as hell.”
When asked if he would retain Barr if he was to be reelected, Trump simply said, “no comment.”
