A month after the US presidential election, in which the controversial president failed to get a second term, it is now a big question whether he will fire his Attorney General Bill Barr, who until this week was a staunch Trump loyalist.
Bars’ “crime” in Trump’s terms is his failure to substantiate the big lie Trump is trying to spread that the election results are based on fraud – something for which there is no evidence and which has been put into trial after trial Has stalled.
Other senior officials in the Trump administration have also seen that their jobs do not support the president. One big name was the man in charge of election cybersecurity who was unemployed without being able to say goodbye to his staff for failing to confirm Trump’s ridiculous claims.
Much is at stake for the president, who could face an onslaught of legal action if he is not president after Biden’s inauguration on January 20. His protection right now is that he is president.
I don’t know if there are any bets left on Barr’s future job prospects, but it would make a good market. I suspect he has a 50/50 chance of survival.
