President Donald Trump announced Monday that US Attorney General William Barr has resigned, equivalent to the Minister of Justice.
Tensions between the two escalated after William Barr said there was no evidence that the November 3 presidential election had been rigged, and a study, backed by the current president, was defeated by Democrat Joe Biden.
Donald Trump even hinted at the possibility of dismissing William Barr, who hid from him that an investigation had been launched into tax fraud in the name of his election rival, Hunter Biden.
Donald Trump released William Barr’s resignation letter on Twitter and announced that his vice president, Jeff Rosen, will be the interim Attorney General of the United States from December 23, when Barr’s resignation takes effect.
William Barr resigns on November 3, the day the Electoral College confirmed the popular vote in the presidential election and gave victory to Joe Biden.
The current White House Leaseholder’s Order expires on January 20, 2021.
