Worthless Bill Barr Runs to Liberal News Outlet to Fight Off Attack from President Trump
Former Attorney General Bill Barr fired back at the recent allegations that he ordered his U.S. attorneys under him to not investigate anything related to the election last November.
As we had reported earlier this week, former U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, William McSwain said in a letter to President Trump,
“On Election Day and afterwards, our Office received various allegations of voter frɑud and election irregularities. As part of my responsibilities as U.S. Attorney, I wanted to be transparent with the public and, of course, investigate fully any allegations. Attorney General Barr, however, instructed me not to make any public statements or put out any press releases regarding possible election irregularities. I was also given a directive to pass along serious allegations to the State Attorney General for investigation – the same State Attorney General who had already declared that you could not win.”
This fits well because we know that Barr said he didn’t see any evidence of any frɑud, but that was because he didn’t allow it to even cross his desk.
Also, we know that he labeled the allegations as BS:
“My attitude was: It was put-up or shut-up time,” Barr said according to The Atlantic. “If there was evidence of frɑud, I had no motive to suppress it. But my suspicion all the way along was that there was nothing there. It was all bulls**t.”
“You know, you only have five weeks, Mr. President, after an election to make legal challenges. This would have taken a crackerjack team with a really coherent and disciplined strategy. Instead, you have a clown show. No self-respecting lawyer is going anywhere near it. It’s just a joke. That’s why you are where you are.”
Now, he’s ran to the Washington Post to try and spin up some more lies in response to what McSwain said.
According to the Washington Post,
In an interview, Barr disputed McSwain’s characterizations of his actions and said McSwain told him he wrote the letter in a bid to win Trump’s endorsement — or at least stave off attacks.
“Any suggestion that McSwain was told to stand down from investigating allegations of election fraud is false. It’s just false,” Barr said, adding that the assertions “appeared to have been made to mollify President Trump to gain his support for McSwain’s planned run for governor.”
Barr said he called McSwain on Monday to complain about the letter, which he heard about before it became public. McSwain defended his missive as technically accurate while asserting, “I can’t have Trump attacking me,” Barr said. McSwain, he added, told him that “he was in a tough spot because he wanted to run and he needed Trump’s at least neutrality, if not support.”
I’m more inclined to believe McSwain over Barr. What does President Trump have to gain by rubbing Barr’s name in the mud at this point? Nothing.
