Barr Privately Told Trump Theories of Widespread Voter Fraud Were ‘Just Bulls***’: Report

Former Attorney General William Barr reportedly told President Donald Trump in a private meeting that his allegations of widespread voter fraud were not true.

Axios reported that Barr had a meeting with the president at the White House on December 1, after he gave an interview to The Associated Press where he revealed that the Department of Justice (DOJ) had not found evidence of widespread fraud.

Having read the AP story, Trump asked Barr, “Why would you say such a thing? You must hate Trump. There’s no other reason for it. You must hate Trump.”

“These things aren’t panning out,” Barr responded. “The stuff that these people are filling your ear with just isn’t true.”

He added, “It’s just bulls***.”

Barr said that he is a “pretty informed legal observer” and, “I can’t f***king figure out what the theory is here. It’s just scattershot. It’s all over the hill and gone.”

Barr disputed the president’s unsubstantiated claims of widespread in an interview with the AP as he said that the DOJ and FBI agents looked into allegations of fraud and, “To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

Roughly two weeks after Trump met with Barr, he announced on Twitter that the attorney general would be resigning by the end of the month.

Despite Barr’s insistence that there was no evidence of widespread fraud, Trump did not halt his campaign to overturn the election results. 

In a phone call earlier this month with Georgia’s Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, Trump said, “I just want to find 11,780 votes, which is one more than we have, because we won the state.”

“We won the election, and it’s not fair to take it away from us like this, and it’s going to be very costly in many ways and I think you have to say that you’re going to reexamine it,” he added.

And on January 6, shortly before Congress met to certify the results of the Electoral College vote, Trump told a crowd of supporters gathered outside the White House, “We will never give up. We will never concede. It doesn’t happen. You don’t concede when there’s theft involved. Our country has had enough. We will not take it anymore, and that is what this is all about.”

“We fight like hell, and if you don’t fight like hell, you’re not going to have a country anymore,” he added.

He also said he and his supporters would “walk down” to the Capitol and “try and give [lawmakers] the kind of pride and boldness that they need to take back our country” to encourage them to disqualify electoral votes in states that he lost. 

After his comments, hundreds of rioters stormed the Capitol, leaving at least five dead and bringing a halt to the proceedings. However, lawmakers reconvened hours later and voted to certify the election results.

The House voted just one week later to impeach Trump for “incitement of insurrection” — the first time a president has been impeached twice.

  1. trumphuhk and all of his apologists, enablers, promoters, and supporters live in a magical state of mind called Assholandia. They all worship trumphuhk and do only what he says. They all are known as stupid Assholes.

    1. I am confused, Bernadette.

      Does that mean that you will actually buy and read his tell-all book because you are also telling him to shut up. So confusing.

      1. If Trumpers have NOT read the Mueller Report, the Senate Intel Committee Report, IG Horowitz Report, Woodward’s “Rage” or “Fear,” Strozek’s “Compromised” or Rucker’s “Stable Genius” WHY would they buy and read a book by Barr? They have repeatedly told us to ONLY listen to MAGA Media—not the real news. Not only do THEY not want the truth, they don’t want us to know the truth.

  2. It would be great if Trump’s followers had the courage to admit they put all their eggs in a basket case like tRump

    1. “Former Attorney General William Barr reportedly told President Donald Trump in a private meeting that his allegations of widespread voter fraud were not true.”
      Two words here…..reportedly and privately. Then just stopped reading. Thanks IJR. You never disappoint. Drop the I because you aren’t.

        1. Don’t procreate. There are enough haters with limited vocabulary in the democrat party

      1. Cherl, HOW do you NOT KNOW that Barr told the entire country in an AP interview that there was not massive voter fraud?? It was reported by Newsmax and FOX News on December 1, 2020!

    2. “I didn’t realize Barr is stupid.” Ernest

      Well, he WAS almost King Donald The Loser’s personal lawyer, just like Rudy Ghouliani, so he can’t be all that bright.

      1. Paul, Please give yourself a review of the many things that MAGA media has told you and you believed.
        1. The Mueller Investigation was a “Democrat hoax.”—Does a “Democrat hoax” get ordered by the Trump appointed-R Senate Controlled confirmed Deputy Attorney General?? The House and Senate were both controlled by R’s in 2017. MAGA news wants you to overlook the obvious facts, but only Trumpsters are foolish enough to buy it.
        2. MAGA news claims “No collusion No obstruction.” 140 instances of Trump campaign contacts with Russians. 10 instances of attempts at obstruction of justice. Only those that have not read the Mueller report believe “No collusion No obstruction” You were scammed. But you apparently like being scammed.
        3. MAGA News told you that the Clinton Foundation was corrupt and the House R’s sent referral to the FBI for the Uranium One Deal (again) and the Clinton Foundation. Clinton Foundation is still in full operation and it is the Trump Foundation shutdown under government supervision.
        4. MAGA News told you Hillary Clinton was going to jail.—-That will not happen until the DOJ locates the law that private servers are illegal in America. No one has located that law. Once again the scam was welcomed by Trumpsters.
        5. Some hosts of MAGA News opinion shows claimed “3-5 million illegal votes for Hillary.”–Trump set up a commission which failed to uncover a single illegal vote so the commission was shutdown and the investigation sent to Trump’s Homeland Security Dept.—STILL NO ILLEGAL VOTES found. So despite that scam, YOU believed the election would be OVERTURNED in 2020 1. When the recounts were done.—DID NOT OCCUR. 2. When the crack legal team presented their evidence in court—DID NOT OCCUR. 3. When the states certified their electoral college votes on December 9th. DID NOT OCCUR. 4. When Josh Hawley and Ted Cruz presented their challenge. DID NOT OCCUR IN EITHER CHAMBER AND BOTH CHAMBERS WERE REQUIRED TO SUPPORT OVERTURNING. A thousand of so perceived storming the Capitol would produce the election result they wanted–DID NOT OCCUR. Sorry, but Trumpsters looked like Bernie Bros during the 2016 D primary. Gullible and uninformed of the reality of the situation. Trumpsters were scammed just as Bernie Bros were in 2016. –NOT a compliment.
        6. MAGA news told you Biden had dementia so Trumpsters repeated it knowing Trump has spoken more delusional and off beat remarks than Joe Biden.
        7. MAGA news told you COVID was “a Democrat hoax.” Over 400,000 individuals have died in America of that “Democrat hoax.”

        So WHEN do you decide to stop allowing MAGA news to make a fool of you?
