On Tuesday, Attorney General William Barr told the Associated Press that the Department of Justice was unable to find enough evidence that would prove there was voter fraud in this year’s election.
Barr’s announcement drew speculation from citizens across the country who now believe that Trump may fire Barr and put Rudy Giuliani in his place.
“I guess he’s the next one to be fired,” Schumer says of Barr after the AG said no evidence of fraud that would overturn the elections

Having fought Barr as impeachment co-counsel and since, this is remarkable.
Barr was willing to embrace and promote Trump's lies about so much: Mueller, Lafayette Park, COVID, Flynn, mail-in voting.
You know just how insane Trump's vote fraud lie is if even Barr rejects it. https://t.co/yxrB6Snsdf

If Barr isn't investigating it's because he knows there's nothing there and all these lies the Trump campaign is pushing to try to steal the election would quickly become crimes when you lie to the FBI.
That said, he still could totally pull whatever.

Bill Barr just left Trump on the Titanic. But we have news for ya Billy, there's a hole in your lifeboat, and the water's gettin' choppy.

The fact that Barr has now admitted reality should not excuse anything else he's done. He gave federal prosecutors special permission to investigate and he helped Trump set the table for the voter fraud nonsense with his loose talk about VBM fraud.
Also, everything else he did

If Trump fires Barr for failing to stoke baseless conspiracy theories, it will be perhaps the defining proof that embracing Trumpism ultimately leads to ruin if you aspire to ever be your own person. Barr threw away his entire legacy to defend Trump—only to have it end like this. https://t.co/iVUdrJHx2I

Trump is going to go apeshit when he hears Barr told the AP the election was clean and there’s no fraud that would change the outcome. This is why Trump made his psycho comments about the DOJ and FBI on Sunday. Barr got ahead of him by taking it public. This will demolish Trump

Dear @realDonaldTrump: FYI below, this is from Bill Barr, the Attorney General you appointed.
Long past time for you to respect the will of the American people, concede gracefully, and sign the stimulus package that the House passed, twice. https://t.co/FJvzsC7541

Barr being at the White House is interesting giving the timing, and because there was no previously disclosed Trump-Barr meeting today.
Firing Barr would be insane, so Trump just might do it
