McConnell: Trump 'ought to listen to' Barr's advice on DOJ tweets


Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said President Trump should follow Attorney General William Barr's advice after the top Justice Department official said the president's tweeting was making it "impossible" to do his job.

Asked during an interview with Fox News's Bret Baier about Barr's comments, McConnell said that "the president should listen to his advice."

"If the Attorney General says it is getting in the way of him doing his job, maybe the president should listen to the Attorney General," McConnell added, asked if he didn't like the president's tweets.
Barr said during an interview with ABC News that he thought it was "time to stop tweeting" about DOJ criminal cases - a rare break with Trump.

"The public statements and tweets ... make it impossible to do my job and to assure the courts and the prosecutors in the department that we are doing our work with integrity," Barr told ABC News.
