Former Attorney General Bill Barr has proven himself to be quite the opportunist.
He strategically waited for the dust to settle from the 2020 election, and now he’s released a book bashing President Donald Trump.
In the book, Barr rejects President Trump’s claims of fraud in the 2020 election.
“The election was not ‘stolen,'” Bar wrote in the book. “Trump lost it.”
Barr, who at one point in 2020 admitted that mail-in ballots were prone to fraud, did absolutely nothing to alleviate the American public’s concerns over the integrity of the 2020 election.
He has proven himself to be just another swamp creature…

Business Insider reports on Barr’s claim:
Former Attorney General Bill Barr in a forthcoming book unequivocally rejected former President Donald Trump’s claims casting doubt on the integrity of the 2020 election, according to excerpts published Sunday in The Washington Post.
Barr wrote in the book, “One Damn Thing After Another,” that Trump didn’t win the 2020 presidential race against Joe Biden.
“The election was not ‘stolen,'” the former attorney general wrote, per The Post. “Trump lost it.”
While Trump’s interactions with Barr regarding the presidential election have been mentioned in other books, the attorney general’s memoir is expected to detail some of the tensest moments between the two men as it related to Trump’s unfounded voter-fraud claims.

Bill Barr has a new book:
The election was not ‘stolen,’” Mr. Barr writes. “Trump lost it.” Mr. Barr urges conservatives to look to “an impressive array of younger candidates” who share Mr. Trump’s agenda but not his “erratic personal behavior.” https://t.co/0ZbetGb8wV

Interestingly enough, back in 2020, Barr admitted that mail in ballots were prone to fraud:
"Elections that have been held with mailed-in-ballots have found substantial fraud… We haven't had the kind of widespread use of mailed-in-ballots that's been proposed [in 2020]… you think that's a way to run a vote? This is playing with fire!" ~Bill Barr pic.twitter.com/qpPNbbCikH

Bill Barr went on CNN in October 2020 & said that “mail in ballots are prone to fraud”
Then following the election he did absolutely nothing to ease the concerns of the american people who had questions about the election.
Now he’s getting rich off a book trashing Trump. Swamp.

According to National Review, Barr now wants republicans to move on from President Trump:
Former Attorney General William Barr writes in a new book that former President Donald Trump has “shown he has neither the temperament nor persuasive powers to provide the kind of positive leadership that is needed,” and that it is time for Republicans to focus on rising new leaders in the party.
The release of the former attorney general’s 600-page book, “One Damn Thing After Another,” is coming as Mr. Trump, who remains the GOP’s dominant figure, contemplates another presidential run. Mr. Barr writes that he was convinced that Mr. 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.”
To many, Barr has simply revealed his true colors.
Perhaps he was truly a RINO all along…

Bill Barr is only relevant because President Trump made him relevant. Shame on him for turning his back on the greatest leader in world history.

President Trump: Bill Barr is another RINO. Do not trust the Republican Party. RINOS are more dangerous than Democrats. #VoteTrump2024
