Former Attorney General Bill Barr said Trump ‘orchestrating a mob’ to storm the Capitol was a ‘betrayal of his office.’ Barr also refused to form a special counsel to investigate voter fraud. President Trump was surrounded by backstabbers.
President Trump vs The Swamp
In a statement to the Associated Press, Barr said “orchestrating a mob to pressure Congress is inexcusable.” The president headlined a “March for Trump” rally on Wednesday where he demanded Congress to do the right thing and address the voter fraud, election-rigging, and faulty voting machines that Democrats used to steal the 2020 presidential election. Trump also urged his supporters to march to the Capitol, where Congress was convening to count up the electoral votes in the 2020 election and finalize Joe Biden’s victory.
After the Trump rally, thousands of his supporters marched to the Capitol, breached barriers, clashed with law enforcement officials, ransacked lawmaker’s offices and forced both the House and Senate to go into recess. Vice President Mike Pence and senior members of Congress were evacuated, while other lawmakers, Hill staffers, and reporters were told to shelter in place and hide behind makeshift barricades before being evacuated as patriots occupied the building.

AG Barr turns his back on Trump
Last month President Donald Trump announced on twitter that Attorney General Bill Barr will leave the administration before Christmas.
“As per letter, Bill will be leaving just before Christmas to spend the holidays with his family,” Trump wrote, sharing a copy of Barr’s resignation letter on Twitter.
Barr, the nation’s top law enforcement officer and one of Trump’s most loyal cabinet members, resigned his post at the head of the Justice Department last month after he didn’t see a need to appoint a special counsel to investigate Trump’s election fraud claims, or Biden’s son, Hunter, who is currently under criminal investigation by the Justice Department over his financial dealings.
Just had a very nice meeting with Attorney General Bill Barr at the White House. Our relationship has been a very good one, he has done an outstanding job! As per letter, Bill will be leaving just before Christmas to spend the holidays with his family…
