Former President Donald Trump lashed out at former Attorney General William Barr, calling him “weak” and “pathetic” in a scathing statement.
“I lost confidence in Bill Barr long before the 2020 Presidential Election Scam,” Trump said in the statement Tuesday. “He was afraid, weak, and frankly, now that I see what he is saying, pathetic.”
Trump’s comments come after a newly released book excerpt said that Barr suspected Trump’s allegations of fraud during the 2020 election were “all bulls***.” Trump called the reports in the book, written by ABC News's Chief Washington Correspondent Jonathan Karl, “made-up beyond any level imaginable” and “fake news.”
Trump claimed that he lost confidence in Barr when he “didn’t act on the very powerful Horowitz Report, and instead gave everything over to John Durham, who has seemingly disappeared from the planet.”
