Former Attorney General William Barr blamed former President Trump for the shocking Jan. 6th Capitol riot. During an interview with NBC’s Lester Holt, Barr was asked if the former president was responsible for what happened at the Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.

The Hill reports:

“I do think he was responsible in the broad sense of that word, and that it appears that part of the plan was to send this group up to the Hill. I think the whole idea was to intimidate Congress, and I think that that was wrong,” Barr responded.

Holt noted during the interview that Trump provided a three-page response to the network over Barr’s remarks, in which he called his former attorney general a “coward,” “a big disappointment” and “lazy.” He also said Barr’s forthcoming memoir, “One Damn Thing After Another: Memoirs of an Attorney General,” was “fake.”

The interview comes one day after an excerpt of Barr’s memoir was published in The Wall Street Journal on Thursday in which he discussed confronting Trump about the former president’s baseless claims that the 2020 presidential election was rigged.

“You started blaming the department for the inability of your legal team to come up with evidence of fraud,” Barr told Trump during a conversation, according to his memoir. “The department is not an extension of your legal team. Our mission is to investigate and prosecute actual fraud. The fact is, we have looked at the major claims your people are making, and they are bullshit.”

In the excerpt Barr says that the conversation prompted him to offer the president his resignation, however, Trump has pushed against the claims and has said he was the one to ask for Barr’s resignation.

President Trump is NOT “former” and Barr has now proven that he’s just another first-class idiot. I wonder who got to him first.

Of course he turns on Trump. Almost all do when they leave so they can sell their books or seek revenge.

Maybe, just maybe, bag pipes Barr is blowing smoke up my fanny again. This sack of baloney tried to cover up the investigation of the Obama administration in the first failed planned coup of Trump instead of expose it. This snake is almost as sneaky as Biden’s pet rodent, sneaky Mayorkasm the open borders czar sack of dodo. All we can do is [email protected] pray these criminals are exposed one day.

Not only exposed, but hanged for treason. Maybe then, the other rats will flee before the end up at the business end of a rope!

Bill Barr has been all over the map with his opinions. And opinions is all he has to offer. He’s a deep stater first, Attorney General second. I was for him at first, until the deep state loyalty started to show. His pick for Special Investigator is going to come back to haunt him. THE TRUTH THE WHOLE TRUTH AND NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH!

Barr was not effective at all – if i were Trump, I would have fired him on the spot. Too bad Barr – too many states have proven Trump was correct on he falsification of election results as there are far too many avenues that were compromised. Ask AZ, GA, PA, and WI for starters. Those states have more than ample evidence including camera footage.

Seems like all liberal Democrat appointees right away accept investigation submitted by democrats, without any evidence. Why couldn’t Barr do it too. Just another traitor and a RINO.

Bill Barr has been despicable and not worthy of the AG job! We thought the President Trump should have made a better appointment after Sessions ( who might have been better than that one!) Traitor!

Barr is a coward.
He could not bear the negative press and took the easy way out.
If the Republicans ever pulled the same obvious criminal actions on the Democrats he would have ripped them to pieces because the lying media and big Tec would have praised him as a hero for years.

Time will prove cowardice as his legacy.

If John Durham doesn’t buckle to the awesome corruption power of the triad of msm, big Tec, and the Democrat machine the United States can regain some integrity in their Democracy.

The real question is, was Barr a “plant” from the get-go! If the Democrats had supported a neutral or even pro Democrat candidate for Attorney General, his methods and conclusions would NOT have been accepted by ANY pro-Trump politicians – probably not even the RINOs. BUT! Since Barr was considered and even painted by the MSM as a pro-Trump AG candidate, whatever he said and did would be accepted by the Republicans – until it was too late to do anything else. And that is exactly how it turned out!

January 6th aside, where were you Bill Barr regarding the Hunter Biden laptop? You knew about the laptop AND its contents, but did nothing. You also knew the Russian Collusion fiasco was a hoax and did nothing.

If I were in charge, I’d hang Bill Barr along with the past three AGs (Holder, Lynch and Sessions) and the current AG, Merrick Garland. If any of these scum did their jobs, half the politicians in DC would be in prison.
