An insider claims that Attorney General Bill Barr has dismissed President Donald J. Trump's attacks as a "deposed king ranting" and declared that he "isn't intimidated" by being called a "big disappointment" regarding the alleged Hunter Biden tax investigation.

The President lashed out at the AG on Twitter Saturday morning, demanding answers as to why he didn't reveal that there was an ongoing investigation into Joe Biden's son before the election. Trump even retweeted a post calling for Barr to be fired immediately.

Trump's attacks came after it emerged Wednesday that the DOJ boss had opted to keep a probe into Hunter Biden over his overseas business dealings and taxes under wraps in the weeks leading up to the election.

According to a source, however, Barr is equally angry with Trump and is simply biding his time until the next administration takes office. The anonymous insider reportedly told CNN Saturday that Barr "cannot be intimidated by Trump" and has dismissed his outbursts as "the deposed king ranting." According to the source, they are "irrelevant to the course of justice and to Trump's election loss" and Barr "is not someone who takes bullying and turns the other cheek."

Barr, per the insider, plans to stay on in his role despite the growing rift between himself and Trump and is likely to only quit if he thinks the president is about to fire him. Furthermore, the source claimed that tensions are so high between the two that it's like a "cold war."

That said, Trump and Barr's relationship had already begun to deteriorate before news of Hunter Biden's federal investigation emerged this week. The AG left the president rather miffed last week when he told AP that the DOJ had found no evidence of widespread election fraud.

Trump launched a series of tweets aimed at Barr Saturday morning. "Why didn't Bill Barr reveal the truth to the public, before the Election, about Hunter Biden," he tweeted. "Joe was lying on the debate stage that nothing was wrong, or going on - Press confirmed. Big disadvantage for Republicans at the polls!" 

"IF Biden gets in, nothing will happen to Hunter or Joe. Barr will do nothing, and the new group of partisan killers coming in will quickly kill it all," he added in another tweet, and even shared conservative pundit Todd Starnes' call for Barr to be fired immediately if the allegations were true. Trump added the comment, "A big disappointment!"



 



 



 

Speaking to CNN, another source claimed that Trump had discussed firing Barr during a meeting with advisers in the White House Friday. The insider said the president was "furious" over the alleged Biden probe silence.

Hunter Biden's overseas dealings became a major talking point for the GOP during the election, especially after bombshell revelations from a discarded laptop was reported by the New York Post.

At the time, however, Biden's campaign brushed off the articles as "Russian disinformation" and smear campaigns. "Not one single solitary thing was out of line," Joe Biden said of his son's dealings during the second presidential debate. "My son has not made money in terms of this thing about, what are you talking about, China."
