(NewswReady.com) – Every week Attorney General William Barr and Senate Republicans meet up for lunch. Presumably, they talk quite a bit about politics and the state of the nation. This week will be a little different, though.
This week, Barr and other Republicans will talk about the petition, signed by over 2,000 former Justice Department employees, that calls for Barr’s resignation:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and House Minority Leaders Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) have recently released a statement defending Barr from this attack:

Barr has reportedly stated that he was considering a resignation on his own because Trump sometimes makes his job harder to do. Even with his complaints, he doesn’t seem to want to follow through with that course of action. Although people don’t believe that Barr will resign over his recent complaints or over this petition, we should hear more details about this story as the week goes on.
