Apparently it wasn’t all roses in White House garden amongst Trump and some of his officials.
In private conservations with liberal journalist Jonathan Karl, Former Attorney General William Barr repeatedly referred the then-President Trump bull**** for his claims that the 2020 presidential election was rife with fraud, despite the overwhelming evidence to prove it.
Barr’s betrayal were revealed in excerpts from the book of “Fake News” correspondent Jonathan Karl called Betrayal, which is set to release this November.
President Trump and AG Barr came to blows according to White House accounts when the former Attorney General refuse to investigate Trump’s election fraud claims. The pair apparently exchanged very harsh words in front of staffers and advisers.
“My attitude was: It was put-up or shut-up time. 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 bulls***,” Barr said in a private conversation.
“From the beginning many of us realized Trump’s claims were bull****. There was no discrepancy found anywhere. There were counting machines, the machines counted the votes, and Trump lost. Where is the fraud?”
In December directly after the election, Barr told the press his team did not believe there was evidence of voter fraud on the scare the President’ claimed there to be, and surely not enough to change the outcome of the election.
Trump allegedly confronted the Attorney General and a heated battled ensured, according to Karl. t
The Former President directly Barr if he made those statements to the press.
“Yes,” Barr responded.
“How the f*** could you do this to me? Why did you say it?” Trump reportedly said.
“I said them because they are true,” the former attorney general lied.
Barr then told the president “no self-respecting lawyer would go near any of your legal claims. Mr, President you have five weeks after an election to make legal challenges. This would take a team of highly-trained lawyers with a disciplined strategy, and what you have is a clown show.”
It’s also been revealed that AG Barr was behind Sen. Mitch McConnell’s reluctance to support President Trump’s fraud claims.
Former President Trump, while a great president, was forced to surround himself with many establishment figures that proved to be destructive to his America-First agenda. Was his legal claims of voter fraud properly investigated, the outcome of the presidential election would be much different and we would correctly be under the leadership of Mr. Donald Trump, not the dotard Joe Biden.
Trump has since responded to the claims Barr makes in Karl’s book:
