Former Attorney General describes how Trump got angry after he pushed back against election fraud claims

Former Attorney General William Barr discussed his interaction with then-President Donald Trump leading up to his 2020 resignation during an interview on MSNBC’s “Andrea Mitchell Reports.”

Mitchell said:

“Former Trump Attorney General, William Barr, who came under fire for intervening in criminal cases in ways favorable to his boss, is for the first time talking about what happened inside the Trump White House and what led him to resign.

“In December 2020, despite Trump’s baseless claim, Barr told the president that The Justice Department uncovered no evidence of widespread voter fraud that could change the outcome of the election.

“In the first television interview, since stepping down as head of The Justice Department, Barr tells NBC’s ‘Nightly News’ anchor Lester Holt what happened when he submitted his resignation," Mitchell said.

'I told him that all this stuff was bullsh*t about election fraud,' Barr said

Barr responded:

“I told him that all this stuff was bullsh*t about election fraud.

"And, you know, it was wrong to be shoveling it out the way his team was," Barr said.

“And he started asking me about different theories.

"And I had the answers.

"I was able to tell him, ‘This is wrong because of this,’” he added.

WATCH:

Holt said, “You’re trying to set him straight?”

Barr responded:

“Yes, and he listened.

"He was obviously getting very angry about this.

"I said, ‘Look, I understand you’re upset with me. And I’m perfectly happy to tender my resignation,’ and then boom.”

Holt said, “He slaps the desk.”

Barr said:

“He slapped the desk and said, ‘Accepted, accepted.’

"And boom, he slapped it again, ‘Accepted! Go home! Don’t go back to your office! Go home. You’re done.’”

Last week, Barr claimed Trump was to blame for the January 6 Capitol Hill riot, even calling for a new 2024 nominee.

As Neon Nettle reported:

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.”
