William Barr gets the cold shoulder from the White House [View all]

(Washington Post via MSN) If there’s a member of President Trump’s Cabinet who has gone furthest out on a limb for him, it might be Attorney General William P. Barr. Since issuing a misleadingly pro-Trump summary of the Mueller report, he has intervened in a number of cases on behalf of Trump’s allies, sometimes in extraordinary ways. He has also echoed Trump’s controversial rhetoric on issues such as mail voting and antifa.

But even Barr has apparently become a squish in the eyes of Trumpworld. And on Wednesday, he received a rather conspicuous lack of an endorsement from the White House.

In a news briefing, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany was asked whether Trump has confidence in Barr after the attorney general said Tuesday that he had found no voter fraud on the level required to change the results of the 2020 election. Her answer was decidedly noncommittal — even more so than past instances in which she has been asked about other administration officials and nominees.

McEnany declined to commit to that.
