William Barr is stepping down as attorney general “before Christmas,” President Donald Trump said in a Twitter post Monday, Dec. 14.
“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 said.
Trump said that deputy attorney General Jeff Rosen, whom he described as “an outstanding person,” will become the acting attorney general after Barr departs the administration.
