From the report:
"Following his confirmation last month, a representative for Attorney General William Barr on Monday said Barr would not be recusing himself from overseeing Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s ongoing Russia probe.

“Following General Barr’s confirmation, senior career ethics officials advised that General Barr should not recuse himself from the Special Counsel’s investigation,” Kerri Kupec, the Director of the Office of Public Affairs at the Department of Justice, told Fox News in a statement.

“Consistent with that advice, General Barr has decided not to recuse.”

However, a senior DOJ official tells Fox News that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is still the primary liaison for Mueller's Office. Barr is ultimately in charge, but Rosenstein is still the primary liaison between the DOJ and Special Counsel Mueller's office."

I wonder how long that will last. Don't think Rosenstein will like having someone looking over his shoulder he can't bamboozle. Especially someone that can fire him.

    Just came across this news about Barr:

    Successfully addressing elder abuse!

    Not that I want to downplay its importance, but didn't he find more pressing issues to look after? Such as the DoJ, FBI corruption, the deep state and the ever more emboldened left?

    Is he pulling a Sessions?

    He is not there for concentrating on small potatoes.
