The New York Times, recently published an article citing three people familiar with his thinking, that "Attorney General William Barr may quit before the end of the year." Like with many recent New York Times articles this does not appear to be factual reporting. You will remember when the NYT claimed they has irrefutable proof of "Russian Meddling in the 2016 Elections" going on to win a Pulitzer Prize for their coverage of Russian interference in the 2016 election and the links between the Kremlin and the Trump campaign.
President Trump commented on their Pulitzer win: "So funny that The New York Times & The Washington Post got a Pulitzer Prize for their coverage (100% NEGATIVE and FAKE!) of Collusion with Russia - And there was No Collusion! So, they were either duped or corrupt?" the president wrote on Twitter. "In any event, their prizes should be taken away by the Committee!"
Now CBS is is throwing cold water on the NYT's claims that "Barr Is Said to Be Weighing Whether to Leave Before Trump’s Term Ends."
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”
President Trump has publicly voiced his disappointment in Bill Barr for his weak response to blatant Democrat voter fraud in the 2020 election.
The Justice Department has refuted a New York Times report that Attorney General William Barr may leave before the end of the year, saying in a statement that he "intends to stay as long as President Trump needs him."
