President Donald Trump announced Monday evening that Attorney General Bill Barr will step down from his position atop the Justice Department “just before Christmas.”
“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,” Trump tweeted. “As per letter, Bill will be leaving just before Christmas to spend the holidays with his family.”
Trump added that Deputy Attorney General Jeff Rosen, who he called “an outstanding person,” will serve as Acting Attorney General and Richard Donoghue will now perform the duties of the Deputy Attorney General.
