Barr says Trump’s tweets ’make it impossible to do my job’

AG William Barr said President Trump’s tweets on sensitive cases make it ’impossible’ for him to his job. ’I cannot do my job here at the department with a constant background commentary that undercuts me,’ Barr said. Barr’s unexpected comments came days after Trump criticized Justice Dept. prosecutors for recommending a 9-year prison sentence for his former adviser Roger Stone.

“I’m not going to be bullied or influenced by anybody ... whether it’s Congress, a newspaper editorial board or the president,” Barr said. “I’m gonna do what I think is right. And you know ... I cannot do my job here at the department with a constant background commentary that undercuts me.” So he's not gonna be influenced but people (POTUS) talking about it makes him unable to do the job because of influence? Am I missing something?

Note that Barr's words are in paraphrase marks, not quotation marks. There's are real good reason for that.

Who would believe this lying sack of shit? Empty words, this is part of the game, come out and condemn this but behind the scenes continue working closely with Trump to weaponize the DOJ. This is a smokescreen.

What Barr is communicating here is that he can't effectively subvert the justice system when Trump keeps calling attention to his efforts. "Please boss, if you want me to bend the rules to get your friends out of jail, you need to stop tweeting about it."

Kevin that is EXACTLY what that statement was. This administration communicates their agenda publicly so they can deny anyone ever told them to do something illegal.

A somewhat transparent attempt at damage control to restore his and the DOJ's credibility. Looks and sounds good for the cameras, but expect Trump to take it easy on him.

Barr can’t do his job because he doesn’t understand that he works for the people and his oath is to the constitution, not the president. Barr lacks an ethical backbone and a set of low hangers that are required for his position at the DOJ. That is exactly why Trump picked the fat little weasel. I wonder what it’s like to know you make Jeff Sessions look butch, because Barr is living that role every day.

Barr to Trump: If you want to tell me what to do, please call on a secure phone. Don't tweet. We need to maintain 'plausible deniability'. Barr would have thought Trump would know that without being told. But Trump has gotten away with so much and brazen is part of his personality.
