Barr

about a week ago on camera on the record with ABC saying this all these

tweets

are making my job impossible now these anonymous reports that people close to him are telling the White House he might

resign

he may not

resign

but it seems to me he's sending a signal to the president please stop that's true I'm skeptical when I see these anonymous reports like what we saw last night about the about the AG

resign

ing and the DOJ very quickly swatting that down for the Attorney General there is there's a big burden on his shoulder and there's high expectations amongst the American public amongst the president amongst the president's supporters tens of millions of Americans who earlier in a segment last leg when you're talking about a two-tier justice system you mentioning Andy McCabe getting off and then seven to nine years of a sentencing recommendation as relates to Roger stone so as Durham's completing his work yep John Durham the prime the people are they want to see that the origins of the

the president

will

tweet the president is frustrated he's demanding with his own high expectations he's demanding transparency and accountability you're right that people are frustrated at the idea that there's two tears of justice but on the other hand isn't Bill

Barr

who's the president's own nominee by the way this is not some enemy of his isn't he's saying that it's harder to actually get justice in the make caved cases the Comey cases and the rest if the president even even if he's not interfering if it appears like he's interfering you mentioned Roger stone bill

Barr

says he had already determined he thought seven to nine years was too too long of a sentence but once the president started tweeting it looked like it was pressure from the president not an independent-minded bill

Barr

yeah I mean if there's a particular statement a feeling that the president has where he feels like he he should or could give the Attorney General some space on you know maybe he'll take that and consider eight but the president is not going to be silent after years of this cloud that basically the Department of Justice the FBI placed over the almost his entire term so I think it is at this point while the Attorney General may want the the President to to give him a lot of space really it's the president speaking not just on behalf of himself he's speaking on behalf of an entire country that is that sees misconduct...

Trump

chose such a strong and selfless public servant to lead the Department of Justice we expect that as always efforts to intimidate the Attorney General

will

fall woefully short they're talking about the letter from outside mostly liberals but some Republicans who have been saying that they used to work in the Justice Department they're frustrated but the question is aren't Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham also telling the president this guy is a good independent man make sure he doesn't leave I think the president agrees that attorney general

Barr

is a good man I believe that Attorney General bars is someone who is in a great position he's taken the reins of the Department of Justice and he is in a position to be able to drain the swamp inside the Justice Department let him to do do...

that I think that the the president is I don't think he's trying to intimidate the Prairie general I think the the president is speaking his own mind but but you know kudos to attorney general

Barr

he made 2,000 individuals expose themselves out of the swamp of individuals who apparently don't have much of a problem of you know Annie McCabe getting off and some of these other individuals escaping justice but they have a problem with you know in a case of Roger stolen someone who had guns out somehow CNN reported this story yeah a four person of the case who was an anti-

trump

person who called him the Klan president and then recommending seven to nine years on the Sentencing Guidelines instead of about three to four which what it should have been named all right people were fired up about in the last fifteen seconds we have do you believe bill Bart's gonna step down or not I don't believe so and I believe I believe he likes his job I believe he supports the president I believe he supports his mission he knows what he needs to do and I sure hope he gets it done got it we appreciate it coming in could say a cocksman
