CNN reported that US President Donald Trump had discussed the possibility of firing Attorney General William Barr during a session on December 11 at the White House, but there is currently no indication that he will take such an act before the end of his term in January 2021.
According to CNN, during his meeting with advisers, President Trump is said to have expressed anger over Secretary Barr kept confidential information related to the federal investigation of tax matters against Hunter Biden – Son of rival Joe Biden – during the 2020 presidential election campaign.
According to CNN, the US President is also said to be angry at the news that Secretary Barr is considering resigning before his term ends.
On the morning of December 12, President Trump borrowed Twitter to complain about Mr. Barr’s term, calling the US Attorney General “a major disappointment.”
On the same day, a federal judge in Wisconsin dismissed the case of US President Donald Trump seeking to reverse the victory of rival Joe Biden in the Democratic state in the state.
This was Trump’s second defeat on the same day in the battlefield state of Wisconsin.
Judge Brett Ludwig dismissed the case while the Wisconsin Supreme Court listened to the arguments in the appeal on another case, when a state judge ruled against President Trump.
Judge Ludwig’s ruling was made before the meeting of the electoral college on December 14, when 10 Democrats will vote for Mr. Biden./.
