William Barr, United States Attorney General and a close ally to Donald Trump resigned his appointment few minutes after the Electoral College elected Joe Biden.
In a letter of resignation signed by him, Barr said he was leaving after four years, thanking Trump for allowing him to serve the country in the capacity.
Trump tweeted in his Twitter handle: “Just had a very nice meeting with Attorney General Bill Barr at the White House. Our relationship has been a very good one, he has done an outstanding job!
“As per letter, Bill will be leaving just before Christmas to spend the holidays with his family. Deputy Attorney General Jeff Rosen, an outstanding person, will become Acting Attorney General. Highly respected Richard Donoghue will be taking over the duties of Deputy Attorney General. Thank you to all!”
