William Barr served for two years as Donald Trump’s Attorney General.
It ended ugly when Barr publicly stated he saw no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election.
And William Barr published one tell-all book that will leave Donald Trump red with rage.
Former Attorney General William Barr is out with a 600-page book entitled, One Damn Thing After Another, that details his time in the Trump administration.
In the book, Barr attacks Trump as unfit to lead and says Republicans should look for a new candidate in 2024.
Barr recounts how his falling out with Trump began in a December 2020 Oval Office meeting after Barr publicly stated he found no evidence of massive voter fraud in the November election.
Those comments enraged Trump.
“’This is killing me—killing me. This is pulling the rug right out from under me,’” Barr wrote that Trump yelled. “He stopped for a moment and then said, ‘You must hate Trump. You would only do this if you hate Trump.’”
The Wall Street Journal – which previewed the book – reported Barr wrote how Trump teed off on him for failing to prosecute the co-conspirators in the Russian-Collusion hoax, including disgraced former FBI Director James Comey.
“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,” the Journal reported.
Barr then offered to resign on the spot and Donald Trump accepted, with Barr writing that Trump told him to “leave and don’t go back to your office. You are done right now. Go home!”
Barr officially announced his resignation a few weeks later around Christmas.
Trump replaced former Attorney General Jeff Sessions with Barr after he lost faith in Sessions following Sessions’ recusal from the Russia investigation.
Barr’s tenure as Attorney General also ended in ugly fashion after Trump lost confidence in him for publicly breaking with Trump as well.
