(JustPatriots.com)- Former President Donald Trump released the dirt on former Attorney General William Barr in another one of his scathing social media posts, according to Mediaite.
Trump called Barr “sloppy, weak and ineffective,” who was fired. He said that Barr is now just a former employee and was “petrified” of impeachment until he began to parrot the Democrat narrative on the “rigged election.”
He called Barr a “RINO,” meaning “Republican-in-name-only, and suggested that he caved to the Democrats, calling him a “disgrace to the Republican Party, & our Nation!”
Trump is reportedly responding to an opinion piece Barr penned for The New York Times titled, “Trump threatens to burn down the GOP, it’s time to move on.” The former attorney general railed into his old boss, saying that his ability to burn down the party will not be based on principle but his “supreme narcissism.”
Barr, who allegedly resigned in December 2020 after disputing Trump’s claims of election fraud, continued to say that Trump considers the Republican Party an “extension of himself—a cult of personality.” Since his resignation, he has become a proponent of “election integrity,” often siding with Democrats on the issue of whether there was widespread fraud in key states, such as Arizona, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.
The relationship between the former president and attorney general had always been rocky, with a series of other confusing events reportedly taking place during Trump’s first term.
In March 2019, Barr famously hurried through the Mueller report, sending a four-page summary to Congress, which was then criticized by Robert Mueller himself saying that the letter “did not fully capture the context, nature, and substance of this office’s work and conclusions” of his investigation.
Federal Judge Reggie B. Walton called the report “distorted” and “misleading” a year later, adding that it was filled with “inconsistencies.” Walton wondered whether it was intentionally created to craft a “one-sided narrative” about the investigation, and a narrative that is also “substantively at odds” with the report.
