Barr: Trump's tweets make my job impossible

United States Attorney General William Barr stated on Thursday that President Donald Trump's practice of tweeting about the Department of Justice's (DoJ) criminal proceedings presents difficulties for the former "to do his job."

Speaking in an interview for ABC News, Barr called for a stop to the president's habit of commenting on court decisions, adding that he is "not going to be bullied or influenced by anybody." However, he pointed out that President Donald Trump never requested him "to do anything in a criminal case."

On Tuesday, four prosecutors in the legal process against Trump's associate Roger Stone quit after DoJ decided to intervene and announce that the sentence the prosecutors recommended "would not be appropriate."
