“There is not a single thing that we have learned about Trump’s attempted coup on January 6 2021 that has made it seem less dangerous, less of a threat, or more benign. In fact, just the opposite, “It was a near-death experience.”
Trump Started Speaking In The Third Person During A Heated Discussion With Bill Barr Regarding The Election Results, Book Says
Trump spoke in the third person during a heated discussion with Bill Barr over voter fraud, per a new book.
Trump was incensed that Barr dismissed claims of mass voter irregularities during an AP interview.
Barr eventually resigned from his post just weeks after the AP interview.
Last December, then-Attorney General Bill Barr sat downwith Associated Press reporter Michael Balsamo, where he essentially rejected then-President Donald Trump’s claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election.
Barr said that the Department of Justice had looked into credible claims of fraud, but notably revealed that “to date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election.”
After the interview, Barr then headed to the White House for a previously scheduled meeting with chief of staff Mark Meadows, where he was told by Meadows that Trump would be “livid” at the election-related statements from the interview, according to a new book by Washington Post reporters Carol D. Leonnig and Philip Rucker.
Barr was told by White House counsel Pat Cipollone that Trump wanted to see him in his private dining room, where the president was watching the right-leaning One America News Network (OANN).
