Trump 'not happy' with Barr, won't commit to keeping AG in potential second term
After investigating the Iraqi government by the Department of Justicia, President Donald Trump, on Wednesday, claimed that he was "not satisfied" with Procurator General William Barr.
He also refused to say whether he will continue to act as attorney general for a potential second term. Trump made the comments at Newsmax TV.
"It's too early. I'm not comfortable, I will give you all the facts I have. I'm not satisfied," Trump said in the interview. "I can't elaborate about it.
In previous interviews, Trump admired and attacked Barr and used the Justice Division for perceiving political rivals as a cudgel.
Recently, reports erupted that Barr's Justice Department concluded a report on "disclosure" of those identified in Russian National Security Papers — a procedure alleged by Trump and conservators was a domestic conspiracy, commissioned to Barr from the Obama period.
The Department of Justice could not, though, find sufficient proof of misconduct and refused to officially disclose their findings or to sue.
The first news was published by the Washington Post.
According to a source with direct knowledge and no interview with former CIA Director John Brennan, NBC News, a federal prosecutor appointed by Barr concluded his review without finding evidence of wrongdoing.
Brennan informed NBC News that the US Prosecutor had not interviewed him.
Procurator John Bash from Texas Western District or anybody else related.
There has been no briefing by representatives in the Justice Department, another central player in the unmasking discussion that agreed to get their identities listed.

In May Barr appointed Bash to lead the investigation into the "unmasking."
The probe of Russian involvement at the 2016 presidential elections by John Mueller was launched as a spin-off from the probe by the US Connecticut prosecutor, John Durham.
Such as revealing involves needing a deeper knowledge of a text to remove the writing of the secret content.
In this case, the names of Americans appeared in intelligence reports produced on foreign nationals through electronic eavesdropping.
The squad of Bash was questioned by officials from Obama such as Brennan, FBI Chief James Comey, and Vice Chairman Joe Biden whether they had been mistaken when they demanded the identification of Michael Flynn, who became Trump's recipient national security advisor, unidentified in intelligence papers.
The amount of Obama administration officials investigated by the Bash team is unknown, if any, although Bash 's team might have enough evidence from other outlets, such as records, and was told by a source that the same inquiries are undertaken.
After the Bash enquiry, Trump's racially driven and unfair probe into his operation in 2016 before Election Day is likely to be unwilling to point out.
Bash reported last week that he was resigned from the Department of Justice, noting a intention to work privately.
Durham said he will not send a study before the election of november 3.
