President Donald Trump didn’t rule out replacing Attorney General Bill Barr if he gets a second term during a Wednesday interview with Newsmax.

“I have no comment. Can’t comment on that. It’s too early,” Trump told Newsmax host Greg Kelly. “I’m not happy with all of the evidence I have, I can tell you that. I’m not happy.”

The president has criticized Barr and U.S. attorney John Durham in recent days after reports surfaced that Durham’s probe into the investigation will not be completed prior to the 2020 general election in November, a development he called a “disgrace” while guest hosting The Rush Limbaugh show Friday.

“This is the problem with Republicans,” he continued. “They don’t play the hard game.”

Trump expressed additional frustration with Barr during the Newsmax interview while reacting to reports that the Justice Department has closed its investigation into unmasking of Trump-linked associates and will likely not charge any of the Obama administration officials involved, including former Vice President Joe Biden.

“Personally, I think it’s ridiculous. It’s ridiculous. It’s a disgrace,” Trump said’ Wednesday. “I think it’s really a horrible thing that they’re allowed to get away — when they say no indictments, they actually said no indictments before the election.”

“I had to go through elections with all those clouds over my head, but they don’t because the Republicans are so nice,” he added. “Personally, I think it’s too bad. I think it’s too bad, they’re guilty as hell.”

The DOJ did not immediately respond to Daily Caller’s inquiries on Trump’s comments.
