Barr—a longtime Trump ally and defender—faced heat from Trump for failing to produce the Durham report on corrupt Democrats’ Russia collusion hoax prior to the election.

Some questioned the rationale behind his recent decision to appoint US Attorney John Durham as a special counsel, which could potentially prevent Trump from declassifying key documents.

Barr also drew criticism for publicly second-guessing reports of widespread vote fraud that Trump’s campaign legal team had pursued.

The final straw may have been the public acknowledgement from Hunter Biden that he was under a tax-fraud investigation.

While the integrity of the investigation may have hinged upon keeping it closely guarded, the confirmation during pre-election scandals may have impacted Trump’s impeachment proceedings last year as well as the Nov. 3 election.

Trump had retweeted items critical of Barr recently, calling him a “big disappointment.”

Trump expressed confidence in Deputy Attorney General Jeff Rosen, who will step in for the duration of the term, which will be roughly a month until the Jan. 20 inauguration.

Democrat Joe Biden is expected to assume the presidency then, barring any dramatic reversals in Trump’s legal efforts.
