Bill Barr Throws Trump Under the Bus Over 2020 Presidential Election, Urges GOP to Move On From Him in New Book

It was reported today that excerpts from former Attorney General Bill Barr’s upcoming book throw his former boss Donald Trump under the bus and urge the GOP to move on from him.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the release of the former attorney general’s 600-page book, “One Damn Thing After Another,” is coming as Trump is primed for another presidential run.

Barr wrote in the book that he was convinced that Trump could have won re-election in 2020 if he had “just exercised a modicum of self-restraint, moderating even a little of his pettiness,” the Wall Street Journal reported.

“The election was not ‘stolen,’ Trump lost it,” Barr added in regards to the 2020 election.

Barr also urged conservatives to move on from Trump and look to “an impressive array of younger candidates” who share his agenda but not his “erratic personal behavior.”

Although Barr offered that suggestion, he didn’t mention any potential candidates by name, the Wall Street Journal noted.

The Washington Examiner’s Byron York shared a screenshot of the excerpt from the WSJ and one Twitter user responded, “He was always working for the other side.”

York quote tweeted the response and said, “Knew many of you would knee-jerk attack Barr. Expected. But Trump was fortunate to have AG of his quality.”

“And (the) point that Trump could have won in 2020 had he ‘just exercised a modicum of self-restraint, moderating even a little of his pettiness’ is true,” York claimed.
