Donald Trump had high hopes for William Barr after appointing Barr to replace Jeff Sessions as his Attorney General.
But that relationship is in tatters.
And William Barr crossed a line with this unbelievable break from Trump.
Donald Trump ripped former Attorney General William Barr as a RINO after Barr’s comments to ABC’s Jonathan Karl for Karl’s new book about the end of the Trump administration, where Barr profanely rejected Trump’s claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election.
“RINO former Attorney General Bill Barr failed to investigate election fraud, and really let down the American people,” a statement from Trump read.
Trump blasted Barr for rejecting what Trump said was evidence of fraud.
“It’s people in authority like Bill Barr that allow the crazed Radical Left to succeed,” Trump added. “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.”
One such example was officials in Fulton County, Georgia admitting 24 percent of the ballots there – more than Joe Biden’s margin of victory in the state – lacked legally-required chain of custody documentation.
In his comments to Karl, former Attorney General Barr called Trump’s claims of voter fraud “bull$%^.”
“My attitude was: It was put-up or shut-up time,” Barr told Karl. “If there was evidence of fraud, I had no motive to suppress it. But my suspicion all the way along was that there was nothing there. It was all bull$%^&.”
Attorney General Barr resigned in December following a growing rift with Trump over the election.
Barr publicly rejected Trump’s allegations of voter fraud which enraged the President.
Now Trump is furious that Barr is shilling to help an anti-Trump member of the corporate media sell books.
