ATTORNEY GENERAL/WILLIAM BARR: “Former Attorney General William Barr said in an interview aired on Friday that he believes former President Trump is responsible for the Capitol riot ‘in the broad sense of that word.’ […]
‘I do think he was responsible in the broad sense of that word, and that it appears that part of the plan was to send this group up to the Hill. I think the whole idea was to intimidate Congress, and I think that that was wrong,’ Barr responded.
Holt noted during the interview that Trump provided a three-page response to the network over Barr’s remarks, in which he called his former attorney general a ‘coward,’ ‘a big disappointment’ and ‘lazy.’ He also said Barr’s forthcoming memoir, ‘One Damn Thing After Another: Memoirs of an Attorney General,’ was ‘fake.’
