(CNN)Of everyone in his Cabinet, Donald Trump should be happiest with Attorney General Bill Barr.

And yet, despite all that Barr has done to promote Trump's conspiratorial agenda and the idea of the chief executive as all-powerful within the broader government, the President is still not entirely happy.

Why on Earth would Trump not be happy with Barr?

As far back as August, Trump has made clear that his assessment of Barr's job future is almost entirely dependent on whether the AG can ensure charges are brought against senior Obama administration officials for their "spying" on his 2016 campaign.

Not only is Trump totally comfortable seeking to use the Justice Department to settle personal scores, he also feels fine about making clear that if Barr doesn't do exactly what he says -- facts and the law be damned -- it could well cost the AG his job.
