Trump Torches ‘RINO’ AG Bill Barr for Calling Election Fraud Claims ‘Bulls**t'
'RINO former Attorney General Bill Barr failed to investigate election fraud'
President Donald Trump has blasted former Attorney General Bill Barr in a blistering statement, calling him a coward and a “RINO” for failing to investigate alleged election fraud.
Trump wrote in a statement:
“RINO former Attorney General Bill Barr failed to investigate election fraud and really let down the American people."
Trump was responding to Barr's statements made to ABC News reporter Jonathan Karl in his book about Trump's fight in challenging the election in 2020.
Barr defended his statement to the Associated Press when he said his department had “not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election."
Barr also recalled that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell asked him to speak out against Trump’s election fraud claims.
McConnell noted the attorney general was “in a better position to inject some reality into this situation.”
According to Karl’s book, Trump said:
“How the f**k could you do this to me? Why did you say it?” he said after Barr’s December statement.
“Because it’s true,” Barr replied.
“You must hate Trump. You must hate Trump,” the president replied, according to Barr.
Trump criticized Barr in a statement for failing to take allegations of fraud seriously:
“It’s people in authority like Bill Barr that allow the crazed Radical Left to succeed,” he wrote.
“He and other RINOs in the Republican Party are being used in order to try to convince people that the election was legitimate when so many incredible facts have now come out to show conclusively that it wasn’t.”
Barr claimed he found no election fraud after investigating.
“My attitude was: It was put-up or shut-up time,” Barr said to Karl in an interview.
“If there was evidence of fraud, I had no motive to suppress it. But my suspicion all the way along was that there was nothing there."
"It was all bulls**t.”
Barr resigned on December 14.
“Our relationship has been a very good one. He has done an outstanding job!” Trump wrote at the time.
But on Sunday, Trump blasted Barr, saying he was “a disappointment in every sense of the word.”
“Bill Barr’s weakness helped facilitate the cover-up of the Crime of the Century, the Rigged 2020 Presidential Election!” he concluded.
In February, former Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy to Trump, Peter Navarro, blasted Barr for working against Trump.
"Bill Barr, President Trump’s Attorney General, also it turns out, happens to be Joe Biden’s first Attorney General because here was what was happening."
"We had over 30 executive orders queued after Election Day, ready to go, but we kept running into these roadblocks, roadblocks, and hurdles."
