The revelation comes from the book “Betrayal” written by ABC News correspondent Jonathan Karl in Washington. The book is due out in November.
The Atlantic published an excerpt from the book on Sunday. It provided important details about Barr’s relationship with Trump in the administration’s waning days. and look at the current Attorney General’s comments regarding the repeated claims. And there’s no basis for Trump’s election fraud.
“My attitude is: It’s time to rest or shut up,” Barr told Karl in an interview, citing why he decided to endorse prosecutors in an investigation of allegations of fraud and why he opened such an investigation. It’s not official in the claim.
“If there is evidence of fraud I have no motivation to suppress it. But my suspicion has always been that nothing is there. It’s all bulls —-,” Barr added.
The former attorney general also said that allegations that voting machines nationwide were regulated to turn Biden’s vote against Trump are not true.
“We knew from the start that it was just a cow—” Barr told Karl.
“It’s a counter. And they record everything that counts. So you just reconcile both. No discrepancies have been reported and I am not aware of any discrepancies,” he added.
Barr also revealed that the Senate Majority Leader at the time Mitch McConnellAddison (Mitch) Mitchell McConnell, a Democrat blasting Sinema logic about opposition GOP senators, warns they can pull back support for the Biden White House deal: ‘ridiculous’ for the GOP to have trouble with infrastructure guidelines. More dual-track (R-Ky.) urged the Attorney General to speak up against Trump’s repeated calls of election fraud.
Senate leaders reportedly told Barr the allegations hurt the country and the GOP and hurt the party’s efforts to race to flee Georgia’s Senate twice, a priority for the party that controls the chambers.
McConnell confirmed the account with Karl based on an excerpt of the book.
“Listen, we need a president in Georgia,” McConnell told Barr.
“So we can’t attack him in front right now. But you are in a better position to put reality in this situation. You are the only one who can really do it,” he added.
“I get it,” Barr said, according to the report. “And I will do it at the right time.”
during the conversation Trump reportedly blamed Barr for his comments, asking him, “How do you do this to me? Why do you say that?”
“Because it is true,” Barr replied.
Trump replied, “You must hate Trump. You must hate Trump.”
