During a press hit earlier this morning, Trump issued a veiled threat against his Attorney General, signaling that unless Bill Barr investigates the many phony claims of voter fraud to help Trump overthrow the results of the 2020 presidential election his job is gone.

NBC's Kristin Welker asked Trump to respond to Bill Barr's comments he made the other day when he said he had not seen any evidence of election fraud enough to overturn the election.

"Given that, why is not the time to concede?" Welker asked.

"Well, [Barr] hasn't done anything so he hasn't looked," Trump replied.

(There is no way the most corrupt Attorney General in our lifetime would make those comments without investigating the court cases and claims Trump's legal team made in their ridiculous attempts to undermine the will of the American people.)

"When he looks, he'll see the kind of evidence you're seeing in the Georgia Senate -- they're finding tremendous volumes," he lied. "He hasn't looked very hard which is a disappointment to be honest with you because it's massive fraud..."

Trump listed all the lawsuits and nonsense Giuliani has been spewing and bragged about the pending suits in Wisconsin, Michigan, Pennsylvania, Nevada, and Georgia.

Trump claims he won every state he lost.

"You still have confidence in Bill Barr?" Welker asked.

Trump paused and said, "Ask me that in a number of weeks from now. They should be looking at all this fraud. This is not civil. He thought it was civil."

In other words Bill Barr needs to recant his election fraud statements and seriously attempt to aid Trump in overthrowing the 2020 presidential election.

The Washington Post is reporting that aides are trying to stop Trump from firing Bill Barr.

One senior administration official said there was a chance Trump would fire his attorney general and asserted that the president was not merely frustrated over Barr’s fraud-related assertions. The person said that several people are trying to persuade Trump not to do so. Like others, this official spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.

48 days left until he's gone.
