Barr's resignation letter is in the Catherine Herridge tweet, below. I believe Barr is a fundamentally decent man, but he made some misguided decisions--particularly with regard to keeping the public and the president in the dark on important investigations in which both had a right to information. That ended up presenting the appearance of being more concerned with departmental process over simple justice. Those missteps were compounded by his post election statement that was unnecessary and uninformed.

From John Solomon's account:
"Just had a very nice meeting with Attorney General Bill Barr at the White House. Our relationship has been a very good one, he has done an outstanding job!" Trump tweeted. "As per letter, Bill will be leaving just before Christmas to spend the holidays with his family."
"Deputy Attorney General Jeff Rosen, an outstanding person, will become Acting Attorney General. Highly respected Richard Donoghue will be taking over the duties of Deputy Attorney General. Thank you to all!" the president added.
In his letter, Barr revealed his last day will be Dec. 23 and that the purpose of his meeting with the president Monday was to brief the president about his department's efforts to investigate voter fraud.
