Attorney General Bill Barr criticized President Trump’s tweets during an interview with ABC News this week; saying his posts on social media were “making it impossible” for him to do his job at the Department of Justice.
“I think it’s time to stop the tweeting about Department of Justice criminal cases,” Barr told ABC News Chief Justice Correspondent Pierre Thomas.
“I’m not going to be bullied or influenced by anybody….whether it’s Congress, newspaper editorial boards, or the president," Bill Barr tells @ABC News.

This is a horrible and very unfair situation. The real crimes were on the other side, as nothing happens to them. Cannot allow this miscarriage of justice! https://t.co/rHPfYX6Vbv

“I’m not going to be bullied or influenced by anybody … whether it’s Congress, a newspaper editorial board, or the president,” Barr said. “I’m gonna do what I think is right. And you know … I cannot do my job here at the department with a constant background commentary that undercuts me.”

'IT WAS IRAN': Israel Says TEHRAN Behind Gaza Mortar Barrage
Israeli officials publicly blamed Iran for the recent mortar attack on southern Israel Wednesday, saying Tehran was the “culprit” behind the barrage that included 180 Iranian-manufactured shells.
According to the Jerusalem Post, IDF Spokesperson Ronen Manelis confirmed the mortar shells were produced inside the Islamic Republic and smuggled into the region by Hamas and Islamic Jihad.
“Despite Israel’s intelligence superiority over terror groups, as well a blockade imposed both by the IDF and Egypt, Hamas and other terror groups in the Strip have restocked their supply of weapons in the four years since the last round of fighting between Israel and Hamas,” writes the Post.
“The mass-produced Iranian mortar shells used in Tuesday’s salvos were also used by Islamic Jihad in an attack in January and in a barrage 12 mortar shells fired toward an army outpost in November,” adds the author.
The revelation raises new questions over Iran’s influence in the region as the United States urges western allies and other nations to help clampdown on Tehran’s nuclear program.
A NEW LOW: Left-Wing Congressman Uses BARRON TRUMP to SMEAR the President
Liberal Congressman Steve Cohen used the President’s youngest son to viciously attack the Commander-in-Chief over the weekend, accusing Trump of neglecting Barron and spending his time on the golf course; bizarrely adding “He will start a war!”
Cohen smeared the President on twitter New Year’s Eve, saying reporters never “see him with Barron,” adding that “you’d think he’d be golfing with Dad occasionally, but narcissists only engage in activities where they are the show.”
“He golfs when he could be reading or be in church or be with his family. Never see him with Barron. You’d think he’d be golfing with Dad occasionally but narcissists only engage in activities where they are the show. No movies, sports viewing either just Fox! He will start a war!” tweeted the left-wing legislator.

Cohen’s comments immediately came under fire from both liberals and conservatives, warning the lawmaker that “kids are off limits.”
“You went after a child in a tweet?? What on earth is WRONG with you? Disgraceful and disgusting,” wrote one user.
