President Trump gave no sign about whether he would have Attorney General William Barr stay on in his administration should he win the election.
The president said he was “not happy” with the operations of the Justice Department, but declined to comment when asked if he would request Barr to lead it in a second term.
“I have no comment. Can’t comment on that. It’s too early,” Trump told Newsmax TV. “I’m not happy with all of the evidence I have. I can tell you that. I’m not happy.”
Trump’s response comes after a Justice Department investigation, led by U.S. Attorney John Bash, found no “substantive” wrongdoing into “unmasking” requests by Obama administration officials into retired Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn in the Russia investigation. The findings “fell short of what Trump and others might have hoped,” according to the Washington Post. However, the scope of Bash’s findings is not known as the conclusions of the investigation have not been made public.
