President Trump on Friday asserted he has the “legal right” to order Attorney General Bill Barr to do anything he wants in criminal cases handled by the Justice Department – a day after the nation’s top law enforcement officer criticized the commander-in-chief’s tweets.
“‘The President has never asked me to do anything in a criminal case.’ A.G. Barr,” the president said in a tweet, quoting what Barr told ABC News in an exclusive interview Thursday.
“This doesn’t mean that I do not have, as President, the legal right to do so, I do, but I have so far chosen not to!” Trump added.
In his rare rebuke of his boss, Barr said the president should stop tweeting about the Roger Stone case because his posts “make it impossible for me to do my job.”
“I think it’s time to stop the tweeting about Department of Justice criminal cases,” Barr said, adding that he has a problem “with some of the tweets.”
