No one trusts Barr……
Not since it came out that he suppressed the Hunter Biden scandal last year, as well as neglecting to investigate ANY of the election fraud which occurred.
Barr was asked numerous times by President Trump, and by the people to investigate claims of election fraud, but what we got instead was a straight up dismissal of the facts.
He didn’t even bother to lift a single finger!
Memos and reports have since come out detailing his sloth over the entire issue.
Personally, I think that his suppression of the Hunter Biden scandal is even worse than his lack of initiative whatsoever on election integrity.
Why you may ask?
Because he 100% knew about the ongoing investigation and chose not to disclose it during a national election for fear that it would hurt Joe Biden’s campaign.
Election fraud required further investigation, but he ALREADY knew what was going on with the Biden investigation—that’s what makes it so bad.
Either way, it looks like Barr is going to get the full vitriol treatment from President Trump from here on out, and I think it is well deserved.
Take a look at the fractured relationship between the two:

Former President Donald Trump laid into his last attorney general, William Barr, who recently called the former president’s claims of election fraud “bulls***t.”
“If there was evidence of fraud, I had no motive to suppress it."https://t.co/kC9wKG8hw8

The Hill summarized Trump’s words on Bill Barr:
Former President Trump on Sunday lambasted his former Attorney General William Barr after Barr described Trump’s repeated unsubstantiated claims about the 2020 election as “bullshit” in a forthcoming book.
“Bill Barr was a disappointment in every sense of the word,” Trump said in a statement issued late Sunday. “Besides which, Barr, who was Attorney General (lawyer) shouldn’t be speaking about the President.”
“Instead of doing his job, he did the opposite and told people within the Justice Department not to investigate the election,” Trump continued. “Just like he did with the Mueller report and the cover up of Crooked Hillary and RUSSIA RUSSIA RUSSIA, they don’t want to investigate the real facts. Bill Barr’s weakness helped facilitate the cover up of the Crime of the Century, the Rigged 2020 Presidential Election!”

BILL BARR: Fmr AG:
A SWAMP RAT EXPOSED? BARR didn't investigate any crimes( FBI/H Clinton) with ample "PROBABLE CAUSE". He covered up the HUNTER BIDEN LAPTOP DISCOVERY & now is covering up widespread voter FRAUD. Could BARR be complicit by knowing it was going to be RIGGED?🇺🇸

Barr’s opinion was featured in The Atlantic:
But Barr told me he had already concluded that it was highly unlikely that evidence existed that would tip the scales in the election. He had expected Trump to lose and therefore was not surprised by the outcome. He also knew that at some point, Trump was going to confront him about the allegations, and he wanted to be able to say that he had looked into them and that they were unfounded.
So, in addition to giving prosecutors approval to open investigations into clear and credible allegations of substantial fraud, Barr began his own, unofficial inquiry into the major claims that the president and his allies were making.
“My attitude was: It was put-up or shut-up time,” Barr told me. “If there was evidence of fraud, I had no motive to suppress it. But my suspicion all the way along was that there was nothing there. It was all bullshit.”
The Department of Justice ended up conducting no formal investigations of voter fraud, but as part of Barr’s informal review, he asked the U.S. Attorney in Michigan about Trump’s claim that mysterious “ballot dumps” in Detroit had secured Biden’s victory in the state.
