Donald Trump’s tweets are so alarming and disruptive to Attorney General Bill Barr’s activities that he’s told people he is considering resigning over them, according to a report in the Washington Post.

It was not immediately clear Tuesday whether Barr had made his posture known directly to Trump. The administration officials said Barr seemed to be sharing his position with advisers in hopes the president would get the message that he should stop weighing in publicly on the Justice Department’s ongoing criminal investigations.”
Barr’s spokesperson says he has no plans to resign:
And does anybody really believe this isn’t a smoke screen Barr hopes will make him look like he’s some kind of impartial player after months of aiding the Ukraine cover-up?
