Former Attorney General William Barr has attacked President Donald Trump, accusing him of fanning the flames of the chaos in the Capitol building on Wednesday.

Barr said the president's "conduct" was a “betrayal of his office and supporters.”

Trump's former ally also blasted him in a statement to the Associated Press, saying that “orchestrating a mob to pressure Congress is inexcusable."

Barr resigned last year as Trump noted a “very good” relationship and praising him for doing an “outstanding job."

Before his resignation, Barr said the Justice Department did not uncover any evidence of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.

Barr told the Associated Press at the time:

"To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election.”

Both Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi called for Vice President Mike Pence to use the 25th amendment to remove Trump from office.

Protesters clashed with law enforcement as they breached the U.S. Capitol, which forced evacuations and lockdowns on Wednesday.

The certification of the election was delayed for several hours as a result.

But Congress later certified the electoral votes making Joe Biden president-elect.

House Democrats have now drafted articles of impeachment against Trump.

“He also willfully made statements that encouraged — and foreseeably resulted in — imminent lawless action at the Capitol,” the articles of impeachment, drafted by Reps. David Cicilline (D-RI), Ted Lieu (D-CA), and Jamie Raskin (D-MD), read.

The articles added that Trump is a “threat to national security, democracy, and the Constitution.”

Trump has “acted in a manner grossly incompatible with self-governance and the rule of law,” the articles read.

“President Trump thus warrants impeachment and trial, removal from office, and disqualification to hold and enjoy any sort of office of honor, trust, or profit under the United States.”

Amid the chaos, 35-year-old Air Force veteran Ashli Babbit was shot dead inside the Capitol following clashes with police,

A law enforcement official told NPR that the alleged shooter of the woman was a senior U.S. Capitol Police officer and that she was unarmed.
