AG Barr Continues to Refute Trump on Hunter Biden and Election Fraud

Looks like Billy is fully off the Trump Train at this point.

Attorney General Bill Barr will be leaving his office at the Department of Justice in a matter of hours, and he’s certainly poised to go out with a bang.

Barr had once been a fairly reliable ally of President Donald Trump, going to bat for the Commander in Chief on a number of issues, and even taking a verbal beating from members of Congress at one point during a contentious hearing.

Now, however, as Barr’s trajectory continues to point toward the exit, he seems to be rebuking President Trump at every turn.

Attorney General William Barr said Monday he sees no reason to appoint a special counsel to lead the ongoing federal investigation into Hunter Biden or to probe further President Trump’s claims of widespread fraud in the 2020 election.

The comments from Barr, delivered at what was likely his final news conference as attorney general, put a damper on two ideas that the president has reportedly raised in recent days. But Barr’s ability to influence events all but disappears Wednesday when he will step down as attorney general.

On the voter fraud issue, Barr was resolute.

Barr has previously said the department looked into allegations and found no evidence of systemic fraud that would change the election’s outcome. On Monday, Barr said he stood by those remarks.

“If I thought a special counsel at this stage was the right tool and was appropriate, I would name one, but I haven’t and I’m not going to,” he said.

Trump had previously and publicly chastised Barr for his statements on voter fraud, and tales of a tense meeting between the two at the White House emerged shortly before Barr submitted his resignation.
