NEW: A DOJ official tells @CBSNews that Attorney General Bill Barr intends to stay as long as President Trump needs him. Sunday NYTimes reported, “Barr Is Said to Be Weighing Whether to Leave Before Trump’s Term Ends”
Attorney General William Barr intends to stay in his post leading the Justice Department “as long as the president needs him,” Fox News has learned.
This comes amid reports that Barr was considering stepping down, possibly before the end of the year. But a senior Justice Department official told Fox News that Barr intends to stay at his post.
This comes after Barr, last week, publicly said that the Justice Department had not uncovered evidence of widespread voter fraud that could change the outcome of the 2020 presidential election, despite claims by President Trump and his campaign’s legal team.
