Former Pres. Donald Trump ranted and raved about his AG Bill Barr in a letter to Lester Holt, “NBC Nightly News” anchor.
Bill Barr was interviewed by Lester Holt about his new book “One Damn Thing After Another” and received a letter from Donald Trump, Axios reported.
The 3 page letter revealed that Trump thinks Bill Barr was “not one of my better picks.”
Trump opened the letter: “Bill Barr was more concerned about being accepted by the dishonest Washington Media than he was about taking care of the American people. He was lethargic, slow, and I knew from the start that he would not have what it took to be a good Attorney General.”
In context, Bill Barr told Holt in the interview that Donald Trump had gotten “very angry” when he told him that there was not any evidence that the 2020 election was rigged.
“I told him that all these things about election fraud was b*******,” … Barr said, Axios reported.
“It was not right to be shoveling it out the way his team was doing. And he started asking me questions about different kinds of theories and because of this I was able to tell him that ‘this is wrong.” Barr added.
Bill Barr also said that Donald Trump never totally understood “the job of the Department of Justice [and] to some extent, the president’s job.”
In his letter, Trump said that Bill Barr is a failure who instead of standing up for the right, caved in to the left.
“I made a lot of great achievements during my Administration, and we accomplished more than most Administrations could even dream of, but Bill Barr was not one of my better choices,” Trump wrote.
“He fell apart under the pressure, and bowed down to the Radical Left — And that is not acceptable. Now he is wallowing for the media, hoping to get acceptance that he does not deserve,” he added.
Donald Trump claimed that Barr would not acknowledge the evidence of a fraudulent election.
“Even with huge amounts of evidence, with a lot more found after he left, he would not go after the irregularities and fraud that had so openly taken place in the Presidential Election of 2022,” Trump wrote.
Trump went on to express his disappointment in Bill Barr.
“Bill Barr was a huge disappointment to me as an AG, he was scared to act, and usually he didn’t,” he wrote.
“He was very cowardly and lazy, he just never really understood what was going on.”
However, in his interview with Lester Holt, Barr said plainly that he holds Donald Trump at fault for the events on January 6,2021, “in the broad sense,” when protesters entered the Capitol, the New York Post reported.
“I believe the whole idea was to intimidate Congress,” Barr said. “I think that that was wrong.”
