Bill Barr Shows His True Colors

Published on

In his memoir, former Attorney General Bill Barr attacks his former boss Donald Trump, claiming Trump lost his grip once he started promoting his baseless election fraud theories in 2020.

In an excerpt from his 600-page new book, which he shared with the Wall Street Journal, Barr asserted that those theories were directly responsible for the rioting on Capitol Hill on January 6 last year.

In ‘One Damn Thing After Another,’ the former attorney general states that the election was not stolen. Trump lost it. The memoir recounts his time as the head of the Justice Department under Trump.

Trump and Barr’s relationship soured following Barr’s December 1, 2020 statement to the Associated Press stating that his Justice Department had found no evidence of widespread election fraud.

Barr resigned from his post at the end of that month.

Last June, Trump said Barr was a ‘disappointment in every sense of the word.’

According to Barr, Trump might have won the election if he ‘just exercised a modicum of self-restraint, moderating even a little of his pettiness.’

Shortly after that Associated Press interview, he revealed an intense exchange with Trump, which led to his resignation.

‘This is killing me — killing me. This is pulling the rug right out from under me,’ Barr asserts Trump shouted at him, just hours after he added to the legitimacy of Joe Biden’s election.

He writes that Trump responded by saying: ‘You must hate Trump. You would only do this if you hate Trump.’

The experienced DOJ veteran told Trump he had ‘sacrificed a lot personally to come in to help you when I thought you were being wronged.’

He reiterated that the DOJ failed to investigate allegations that the election was rigged, especially when Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis promoted conspiracy theories nationwide during the campaign.

The president then launched into a tirade of criticism directed at Barr, the ex-attorney general recalls until Barr finally decided to resign.

‘Accepted!,’ the president is said to have shouted as he slammed his desk.

‘Leave and don’t go back to your office. You are done right now. Go home!’

Barr claims the White House lawyers convinced Trump not to fire his DOJ head immediately.

Barr was one of Donald Trump’s closest allies until their disagreement over the election, and he was criticized by Democratic lawmakers who claimed he weaponized the DOJ on the ex-president’s behalf.

However, in his memoir, Barr encourages Republicans to move past Trump and consider ‘an impressive array of younger candidates’ whose viewpoints are conservative and without Trump’s bombastic and chaotic approach.

Trump has, according to him, ‘shown he has neither the temperament nor persuasive powers to provide the kind of positive leadership that is needed.’

Particularly after losing the election and after having ‘lost his grip’.

‘The absurd lengths to which he took his “stolen election” claim led to the rioting on Capitol Hill,’ Barr wrote.

A select congressional committee investigating the January 6 Capitol riot has been studying Trump’s actions after the departure of Barr and before the riot, especially his reported efforts to install a lower-level loyalist at the Justice Department.

Barr himself is said to have spoken to the committee, according to its chairman Rep. Bennie Thompson.

In Barr’s absence, Acting Attorney General Jeffrey Rosen took over the DOJ with less than a month to go before Trump leaves office.

Nevertheless, Rosen was soon the target of a pressure campaign by former DOJ attorney Jeffrey Clark. Initially, Clark requested Rosen to write the Georgia secretary of state and officials in other battleground states saying the DOJ was investigating “serious irregularities” in the presidential vote count and asking that the legislature convene to examine “new evidence” and “deliberate matter consistent with its constitutional duties.”

Trump threatened to have Rosen replaced with Clark after Rosen refused, but the Oval Office meeting on January 3, 2021, ended with Clark being replaced instead.

The DOJ, Council, and White House officials discussed over three hours whether Trump could replace Rosen with Clark, as well as whether Clark was qualified for the position. It is alleged that Clark implied he would send the letter if he were to take over the Department of Justice.

However, the DOJ officials ‘made clear that all of the Assistant Attorneys General would resign if Trump replaced Rosen with Clark,’ according to a report by Senate Democrats.

Deputy counsel Patrick F. Philbin and White House Counsel Pat Cipollone responded shortly after, with Cipollone describing Clark’s letter as a ‘murder-suicide pact’

There was no follow-through from Trump. Several members of Trump’s orbit have been subpoenaed by the Capitol riot committee, including Clark.

A couple of months ago, the panel voted to refer Clark to the House for a contempt vote, but Clark insisted on pleading the fifth.

He was seen on February 2 entering a US House of Representatives office building where depositions are being taken by the special committee investigating the Jan. 6, 2021, violence.
