Former Attorney General William Barr turned on former President Donald Trump in an NBC interview with Lester Holt.
“Former AG Barr says then-President Trump became furious after Barr told him there was no evidence that the 2020 election was fraudulent.”

Barr said, “I told him that all this stuff was bulls—… about election fraud. And, you know, it was wrong to be shoveling it out the way his team was.” As Trump pressed on about his alledged election fraud claims, Barr was not looking to help him in any way.
He continued, “The narrative was I was a toady to Trump and I would do Trump’s bidding. And the media constantly went out with that story. Well, I think no, because I tried to take every issue that came to me and decide it what I thought was the right thing.”
Barr also went after the former president for wanting to investigate the Biden family, “This whole maneuver of trying to get the Ukrainians to investigate Biden — that was a hair-brained scheme. It was ridiculous.”
As we previously reported, “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.’ “
While many on the right once respected and liked Bill Barr, following the 2020 election, many Trump supporters may claim that he turned on Trump. After resigning from the Trump administration, he has since distanced himself away from him.
