Attorney General Bill Barr resigned Monday touting President Trump’s record and accomplishments, despite what he called a “partisan onslaught” and “relentless, implacable resistance.”
Republicans and the President were furious at Barr’s cover-up of the Hunter Biden investigation before the election.
Barr, who will leave the Justice Department next week, had his departure announced by President Trump on Twitter Monday evening.
Immediately after, President Trump announced his newest appointment:
…Deputy Attorney General Jeff Rosen, an outstanding person, will become Acting Attorney General. Highly respected Richard Donoghue will be taking over the duties of Deputy Attorney General. Thank you to all! pic.twitter.com/V5sqOJT9PM— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 14, 2020
Many on the right are celebrating the newest pick, Richard Donaghue, who has a strong military record and ties to General Flynn:
Sometimes it helps me to see what the other side is saying.
And when the Black Lives Matter people have this to say about someone, I know they must actually be a great patriot:
Corrupt Deputy Attorney General Jeff Rosen, an outlandish person, will become a worse Attorney General.— Donood J. Twump #BlackLivesMatter (@WealDonoodTwump) December 14, 2020
Lowly & disrespected Richard Donoghue will be taking over the duties of degrading the Deputy Attorney General’s office. DAMN you to all, especially #CrybabyTrump!
