On Friday, former President Trump slammed his former Attorney General Bill Barr, calling him “weak” and “ineffective” and accused him of not doing more to combat Trump’s bogus accusations of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
In a statement, Trump stated, “Former Attorney General Bill Barr wouldn’t know voter fraud if it was glaring him in the face – and it was.” “The truth is, he was weak, ineffective, and terrified of being impeached, as the Democrats threatened all the time.” He was ‘broken’ by them.”
Trump also accused Barr of wanting to “save his hide” by refusing to act on Trump’s charges of election fraud and irregularities in the 2020 election.
Trump’s remarks came after Barr told NBC News that the former president became furious when he told him there was no evidence that the 2020 election was rigged. Officials from both parties around the country, as well as in crucial swing states, have backed Barr’s position.
“I informed him that all of this election fraud nonsense was nonsense.” And, you know, shoveling it out the way his people did was inappropriate,” Barr said, recalling Trump’s “extremely angry” reaction to the statements.
Barr also stated that he offered to retire from his position, which Trump took up. Trump’s allegation that he was the one who requested Barr’s resignation is contradicted by the former attorney general’s story.
Trump has continued to disseminate the erroneous concept that the 2020 election was stolen from him and that he was the rightful winner of the presidential campaign more than 13 months after leaving the White House.
He’s also defended several of his fans who took part in the violence at the US Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, blaming Democrats and so-called “RINOs” (Republicans in Name Only) for targeting them for political benefit.
In a court filing this week, the House select committee investigating the Jan. 6 riot said it had discovered evidence that Trump and his team attempted to illegally block Congress’s certification of electoral votes and were “involved in a criminal conspiracy to defraud the United States.”
