The article specifically referenced the attorney general's intervention in the Flynn case, which current and former officials said "seemed to be part of a new pattern of Justice Department political leadership spinning up inquiries that might help Trump and his friends and hurt their perceived foes".
Michael Flynn's case is not moving forward after the Justice Department recommended it should be dismissed.
It marked the latest instance of the department under Barr, a Trump political loyalist, changing course under public pressure from the president to go light on one of his allies.
Flynn was charged in December 2017 with lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his interactions with a Russian ambassador to the United States before Trump took office. "I wish there were tapes in my case, but [I] learned a lot from Richard Nixon, and you don't do that".
Donald Trump said he didn't know that the justice department was going to drop its charges on Thursday against his former national security adviser, but he didn't hold back on his thoughts.
The FBI set out to interview General Michael Flynn, when they had no predicate for any investigation of any crime.
Flynn was one of several former Trump aides charged under former Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation that detailed Moscow's interference in the 2016 USA election to boost Trump's candidacy and contacts between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation.
The President has described Flynn as a "great warrior" and "great gentleman" and declared the reports about Flynn's involvement with Russian Federation as "fake news".

"The evidence against General Flynn is overwhelming".
During an interview with CBS News' Catherine Herridge, Barr said the Justice Department had been investigating Flynn's accusation of misconduct by the government, and after finding additional material, he agreed the case should be dismissed.
In court documents being filed Thursday, the Justice Department said it is dropping the case "after a considered review of all the facts and circumstances of this case, including newly discovered and disclosed information".
Barr was appointed by Trump long after Flynn was charged.
Mr Flynn was one of six people associated with the Trump campaign who were ultimately convicted or pleaded guilty in the Mueller investigation. This year he attempted to withdraw his plea, arguing he did not intentionally lie.
"I did nothing wrong and there are no tapes", Trump said.
Mr Trump fired him after it emerged that he had discussed lifting sanctions on Russia with the Russian ambassador to Washington before Mr Trump took office and had lied to the vice-president about that conversation.
In 2014, the Obama administration fired Flynn from his role as head of the Defense Intelligence Agency, citing issues of mismanagement and temperament. It says there was nothing on his Russian Federation calls "to indicate an inappropriate relationship between Mr. Flynn and a foreign power". "And they asked him if he remembered saying that, and he said he didn't remember that".
