Trump distanced himself from Berman’s ouster Saturday as he left the White House for Tulsa, Okla., and said it was Barr’s call.
“That’s all up to the Attorney General,” Trump said when asked about Berman’s firing. “Attorney General Barr is working on that. That’s his department, not my department.”
“We have a very capable Attorney General so that’s really up to him,” Trump said before leaving for his first rally since March. “I’m not involved.”
