William Barr: Trump Shouldn’t Run in 2024 Because He’s to Blame for January 6
Trump has show 'neither temperament nor persuasive powers' to be President
Former Attorney General William Barr has claimed that President Donald Trump was to blame for the January 6 Capitol Hill riot, even calling for a new 2024 nominee.
In Barr’s upcoming 600-page book, profiled by the Wall Street Journal, Barr writes that Trump has “shown he has neither the temperament nor persuasive powers to provide the kind of positive leadership that is needed.”
Barr goes on to say that Trump could have won the 2020 election if he had “just exercised a modicum of self-restraint, moderating even a little of his pettiness.”
“The election was not ‘stolen,’” he asserts in the book, titled One Damn Thing After Another.
“Trump lost it," he wrote.
Barr advises that Republicans look to “an impressive array of younger candidates” for 2024 and avoid the pitfalls of the former president’s “erratic personal behavior.”
Barr recalls a meeting he had in the Oval Office after he publicly declared that widespread evidence of voter fraud didn’t exist.
“’ This is killing me—killing me. This is pulling the rug right out from under me,’” Barr claims Trump shouted at him.
“He stopped for a moment and then said, ‘You must hate Trump. You would only do this if you hate Trump.’”
Per the Wall Street Journal:
Mr. Trump then launched into a list of other grievances he had with his attorney general: that the federal prosecutor Mr. Barr ordered to review the origins of the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s Russia probe that preceded the Mueller report hadn’t released his findings before the 2020 election, and that Mr. Barr declined to prosecute former FBI Director James Comey after a department watchdog rebuked him for sharing memos that contained sensitive information about his interactions with Mr. Trump, a complaint brought up repeatedly by the president.
At that moment, Barr claims he offered his resignation, which Trump accepted.
“Leave and don’t go back to your office. You are done right now. Go home!” Barr asserts Trump told him.
Weeks later, Barr resigned from his position.
As Breitbart noted:
Regarding January 6, the former attorney general said that Trump lost himself after the election and pushed the voter fraud to such an intense degree that it led to the riot on Capitol Hill.
“The absurd lengths to which he took his ‘stolen election’ claim led to the rioting on Capitol Hill,” he writes.
Last week, Trump strongly hinted at a 2024 presidential run during his speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC), saying, “we’re going to be doing it again.”
As Neon Nettle reported:
The 45th president warned his detractors that “They’re going to find out the hard way” after the midterms and 2024 general election.
“And this is some crowd. We broke the record again, but they’re going to find out the hard way starting on November 8, and then again even more so on November 2024,” Trump said.
“They will find out like never before we did it twice,” he said.
