Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Bill Barr Rips Trump in New Interview: His Tweets 'Make It Impossible to Do My Job'”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Under heavy criticism for Department of Justice intervention in the Roger Stone case, Attorney General William Barr insisted that President Donald Trump has never asked him to interfere in any criminal case, but also ripped the commander in chief for tweeting about his department.

When asked by ABC about Trump’s tweets on criminal cases, Barr replied that they “make it impossible for me to do my job.”
