In a Fox News piece on Thursday, former Attorney General Bill Barr commented on Trump’s opinion that it was “unfair” to try him on his numerous criminal charges while he was actively running for president, and made it clear that it was no “immunity”. to have in this scenario.
“You don’t get immunity two years leading up to the election just by saying, ‘Hey, I’m a candidate you can’t run me against,'” Barr told host Neil Cavuto. “These investigations are already underway.” For a while, everyone knew about it before they even announced their candidacy.
In response, Trump hit back at Barr in a pointed Truth Social post, in which he writes, “Why does FoxNews keep portraying the slow-thinking and lethargic Bill Barr who had neither the courage nor the stamina to fight the far left ?’ lunatic when he was Attorney General and, more importantly, refused to fight voter fraud. He knew what was going on, just look at his earlier remarks! Unless FoxNews starts recruiting the RIGHT people, their ratings will never recover.” Join the fray, Marjorie Taylor Greene defended Trump (as usual) with her own attack on Barr via social media, writing: “Bill Barr is a traitor! I’m glad he got FIRED!” Trump was quick to voice that opinion of his own accord.
