Trump Tears Into Barr in Letter to Lester Holt: 'He Crumbled Under the Pressure'

Share

Former President Donald Trump is blasting former Attorney General William Barr, saying he “crumbled under pressure.”

Axios first obtained the letter Trump wrote to NBC’s Lester Holt. Calling Barr a “big disappointment.” Trump added, “He was afraid to act, and usually didn’t.”

Trump claimed he “made many great appointments during my Administration, and we accomplished more than most Administrations could even dream of, but Bill Barr was not one of my better picks.”

He continued, “He crumbled under the pressure, and bowed to the Radical Left — And that is not acceptable. Now he is groveling for the media, hoping to gain acceptance that he doesn’t deserve.” 

The former president commented on statements Barr made during his interview with Holt.

“With respect to prosecuting political rivals, it was just the opposite,” Trump said in response to the network’s question about Barr’s statements. “Despite the many crimes committed by the Biden family, I did not push Barr to go after them. While the things done were legendarily corrupt, I thought it would be inappropriate for me to get personally involved.”

When asked about a statement Trump made during a December 1, 2020 meeting, the former president responded, “I never said ‘You must hate Trump,’ rather, I said ‘If you didn’t see corruption in the Election, of which so much has already been revealed (and massive amounts up until this date), than you are not capable of being Attorney General.'”

He added, “‘You don’t have the energy or backbone to stand up to the Radical Left. Please give me your letter of resignation.'”

Barr responded to the letter during an appearance on “Today” Monday morning.

Is the letter "childish"?

“It’s par for the course. The president is a man who, when he is told something, he doesn’t want to hear, he immediately throws a tantrum,” Barr said.

Barr then called the letter “childish.”
