PRESIDENT Donald Trump "might fire Bill Barr" after an "intense" White House meeting when the Attorney General said there's no evidence of voter fraud.
An administration official and two people familiar with the situation told NBC News that the president has not ruled out the possibility of getting rid of Attorney General William Barr.
According to the sources, a call to fire Barr would be made by President Trump.
However, the sources also said the possible firing is not expected to happen anytime soon, NBC News reported.
The report comes as Barr had an "intense" meeting with President Trump on Wednesday.
Sources told ABC News about the allegedly fiery exchange between the attorney general and Trump - but didn't reveal any more information on their meeting.
In a Tuesday interview with The Associated Press, Barr said
Barr told The Associated Press on Tuesday that there have been no claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
He said: "To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.
“There’s a growing tendency to use the criminal justice system as sort of a default fix-all, and people don’t like something they want the Department of Justice to come in and ‘investigate.'
"Most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct. They are not systemic allegations.
"And those have been run down; they are being run down. Some have been broad and potentially cover a few thousand votes. They have been followed up on.”
His interview comes amid President Trump’s repeated claims that the election was stolen, and his refusal to concede his loss to President-Elect Joe Biden.
The president wrote: "...People are coming forward like never before. Large truck carrying hundreds of thousands of fraudulent (FAKE) ballots to a voting center? TERRIBLE - SAVE AMERICA!"
