AG Barr has considered resigning over Trump’s continuous tweets on the Justice Department

AG Barr has considered resigning over Trump’s continuous tweets on the Justice Department

President Trump’s continued tweets concerning Justice Department investigations have compelled Attorney General William Barr to consider leaving office, as indicated by numerous reports Tuesday night.

According to The Washington Post, three administrative authorities, who stated that Barr told people close to the President that he was thinking about quitting over Trump’s tweets.

The Justice Department representative Kerri Kupec denied any ideas to leave on Twitter, stating, “Addressing Beltway gossip: The Attorney General has no intentions to leave.” White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham rehashed Kupec’s tweet.

A week ago, Barr expressed in an interview with ABC News, that “the President’s tweets make it “difficult” for him to carry out his responsibility “I believe it’s time to stop the tweeting on the Department of Justice criminal cases.”

Barr remarked after the Justice Department repealed a proposal that GOP political operative and longtime Trump counsel Roger Stone be convicted to seven to nine years in jail for misleading investigators and tampering witnesses.

The office has denied that Trump’s tweets censuring the first sentence recommendation had any impact on the verdict.

The President has utilized Twitter to proclaim the initial verdict recommendation for Stone a “miscarriage of justice,” and expressed his opinion on various sensitive Justice Department matters before.

Barr has since long been criticized for his recognized defense of the President, since the time he described then-special counsel Robert Mueller’s report without giving a full picture of Mueller’s findings. Barr’s critics have suggested he still intends to defend the President.

As a result of the continuous tweets by President Trump, Four federal prosecutors managing the Stone case, which stems from the special counsel investigation into Russian election interference, resigned in protest of the Justice Department’s actions.

Whereas, Trump publically backed Barr ere Tuesday, telling correspondents: “I have absolute confidence in my attorney general. I believe he’s working admirably. He’s a strong person.”

He agreed by saying, “I do make his task harder,” Trump included. “I do concur with that. I feel that is valid.”

Republican leaders also openly expressed support for the attorney general on Tuesday, with House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.), Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), and regarding him a “man of the most noble character and perfect integrity” in a joint statement.

Trump Control Comes Through Congressional Vote On Iran

A Republican controlled senate has finally passed a resolution to control President Donald Trump’s military moves against Iran. Now, Trump cannot make a move towards Iran with a congressional authorization.

This development has come through after a vote fell short of the two-thirds majority necessary to overcome a promised veto by the White House.

This reiterates that there is lack of faith in Trump’s administration that does not speak for the betterment of the United States as a whole. The vote shows that some Republicans have no qualms about break away from Trump on foreign policy, even if they largely remained aligned with the administration on most other issues.

While being a Republican leader, he has not received thumps up for his obtuse point of view when it comes to trade and foreign policy. His various decisions in Syria, China and Iran, have done nothing but created sense of unrest and disturbed inter-government dynamics.
In 2019, Republicans had joined Democrats to challenge the Trump administration on several foreign-policy measures. Nearly 130 House Republicans voted to oppose Mr. Trump’s decision to withdraw troops from Syria last year.

Bipartisan majorities in the House and Senate also have approved resolutions that aimed to withdraw U.S. support for a Saudi-led coalition in Yemen and block arms sales to Saudi Arabia. Mr. Trump vetoed both of them.
Sen. Tim Kaine is a democrat from Vermouth and the author of the resolution. According to Kaine, “While the President does and must always have the ability to defend the United States from imminent attack, the executive power to initiate war stops there,” Mr. Kaine said. “An offensive war requires a congressional debate and vote. This should not be a controversial proposition.”

In America, most such strategic decisions that can affect the national security of the country cannot be taken by the President without running it through the congressional approval. This is done merely to ensure the onus of a major decision does not lie with one person only. Read more Latest news on africa .

Majority Vote Prevents Trump From Being Impeached

Majority Vote Prevents Trump From Being Impeached

By Uttara Malhotra.

The Senate has finally acquitted President Donald Trump of the two articles of impeachment levied on Trump by the Democrats. It is now confirmed that the majority of a two-third vote was not there in order to remove him from his seat of power. Votes were largely along party lines.

Donald Trump had been accused of using his power seat to meet his personal agenda by influencing the Ukrainian President and about getting Joe Biden and his son investigated.

Further, Trump has also been accused earlier of possibly using Russian influence to shifting the voting influence to his side in the 2016.

Previous statements to the media by the Republicans confirmed that the party could not but acquit Trump else it would hurt the party in the long run. During the trial, Democrats repeatedly focused on the point that Trump had gone too far in cheating in the coming election by trying to damage a potential opponent. They were referring to Joe Biden. Republicans then had to create a protective net of words in which they claimed that the Democrats were improperly inflating missteps into impeachable offenses and trying to overturn the results of the 2016 election.

Democrats continued to say that the democracy has been failed by the president, while Trump has been happily boasting of how the economy has risen from the ashes, only because of his efforts. However, the finer print shows that Trump’s presence has disrupted the whole fabric of America’s relations with countries worldwide.

The first article of impeachment was abuse of power. All 47 Democratic-aligned senators and Mr. Romney voted to convict, falling short of the 67 needed to remove the president from office. On the obstruction of Congress article, the vote also failed, with all Democrats and no Republicans finding the president guilty.

Surprisingly, Romney voted out of the simple awakening of his conscience making him the first in the history of the party to do so. Two hours before the acquittal vote he marked in a floor speech that he had decided to vote to convict the president on the first article and said, “The president is guilty of an appalling abuse of public trust.”

Attacks on the Utah senator were planned as soon as he changed his stance. Those who can see the larger picture have admitted in various media polls that Mr. Trump abused his power and obstructed Congress. However, some 49% of respondents said he should be allowed to finish his term, compared with 46% who said he should be removed. see more news in america.

Trump Ridicules Democrats As He Prepares For Second Term

Trump Ridicules Democrats As He Prepares For Second Term

From the way the Republicans have swayed the trial’s outcome towards the impeachment of the President of US, it seems Donald Trump will be acquitted. Speaking to the Congress, Trump went all out to ridicule Democrats’ efforts to impeach Trump over two articles they submitted to the senate.

He was also able to establish credibility for being re-elected for a fresh term, when he boasted openly about how his policies of deregulation and tax cuts were responsible for “unparalleled success” in the economy. He also mentioned how in his presidency, the US economy had done better, and earned the respect the country deserves in the eyes of the world. “In just three short years we have shattered the mentality of American decline and we have rejected the downsizing of America’s destiny,” Trump said.

Soon later, Nancy Pelosi, the speaker of the house tore the speech of the president apart.  Her frustration and anger was verbalized in her action. While he got a standing ovation from his own party, Trump started his speech, steering the subject of his impeachment in the early portion of his speech. All the time, at the Congress meeting, the rival Democrats for the most part remained seated and showed their disgruntlement. Throughout his speech, Trump asserted how he had done so much better for the American economy than his predecessor Barack Obama. It has been seen over his term of presidency, that he has out of his way, to undo everything which had been done by Obama in his term to better the situation of America from the inside and on the outside. The worst damage done by Trump has been to the 2015 Nuclear deal which was designed and implemented by Obama. By undoing it, Trump has created war like conditions with Iran and misbalanced the equations with other European countries whose future also depends on this deal. Read more news in america.
