William Barr Reveals What Cost Trump the 2020 Election, Drops Major 2024 Hint

Former Attorney General William Barr isn’t shying away from discussing his time serving the Trump administration.

The former AG who resigned in 2020 after breaking with Trump following the Jan. 6th Capitol riot and claims of election fraud told NBC’s Savannah Guthrie why Trump lost. While the former president maintains that widespread voter fraud is what cost him a second term in the Oval Office, Barr says that Trump’s inability to win over independent and Republican voters in the suburbs.

The Hill reports:

“If you look at the vote, the actual vote, and there’s no mystery as to why he lost,” Barr told co-anchor Savannah Guthrie on NBC’s “Today” show.

“He lost for the reason he was told for a whole year he was gonna lose, which is he alienated independent and Republican voters in the suburbs. That’s why he lost,” he added.

“First, all the examples that were thrown up very early were, you know, vaporware, there was nothing to them, they were, they were just false,” Barr said.

“Second, no evidence has come out since then,” he added.

Barr appeared on NBC’s “Today” show one day before his book, “One Damn Thing After Another: Memoirs of an Attorney General,” is set to publish.

However, despite Barr’s recent criticisms of the former President he hasn’t completely given up. Trump has strongly hinted at launching a third presidential campaign and Barr still would likely cast his vote for him but wouldn’t be too thrilled about it.

According to separate reports from The Hill:

“I certainly have made it clear, I don’t think he should be our nominee and I’m gonna support somebody else for the nomination,” Barr said.

Pressed by Guthrie on if he would support Trump should he receive the nod from the GOP, Barr said he could not imagine a scenario in which he did not support the Republican nominee. He said the progressive agenda is “the greatest threat” to the country.

“Because I believe that the greatest threat to the country is the progressive agenda being pushed by the Democratic Party, it’s inconceivable to me that I wouldn’t vote for the Republican nominee,” Barr said.

“So even if he lied about the election and threatened democracy as you write in your book, better than a Democrat,” Guthrie responded.

“It’s hard to project what the facts are gonna turn out to be three years hence, but as of now, it’s hard for me to conceive that I wouldn’t vote for the Republican nominee,” Barr added.

People like Barr appear to be the greatest threat to our country. Calling election fraud BS was not sufficient. How about Wisconsin election fraud? How about all the mysterious appearance of ballots after midnight. He is a swamp dweller as bad as his ex buddy Bush.

Explain why the most popular president on paper had such low voter turn out at his dismal campaign rallies. Even Hillary’s big band rallies didn’t make her popular. America is not stupid.

And the candidate, who did not even campaign, got 81 million votes. Is this reasonable to think??

Barr is dead wrong and is full of BS. Trump won 75 million votes, a record by far for any GOP candidate for President. That was 13 million more than Romney, 16 million more than McCain, and 13 million more than GW Bush. Trump got plenty of votes from independents and suburbia. Supposedly Trump did not win because Biden got 81 million, which was 16 million more than Hillary and Obama. Where did those 16 million votes come from? They were not evident on the campaign trail. Trump had massive adoring crowds. Biden was in his basement and when he did emerge could not attract a tiny crowd. The explanation is vote fraud.

Barr is a mediocre DC swamp rat loyal to the DC swamp who has nothing really to say. In the end, he failed as AG. His “See No Evil Monkey” act as to vote fraud was an abdication of responsibility. And we are now suffering the consequences of a disastrous Biden Administration.

Barr’s a lying pathological liar living up to his reputation who needs to be in jail himself for his treasonous acts while in office. Barr, being a part of the deep state commiecrats, did all he could to aid and abet the Demonrat enemy. But of course NBC which is part of the lying anti-Amerncan media would bring him on to spout his lies.

This AG, claims that there was no evidence of election fraud, when he nor the courts, would even look at the evidence. Affidavits were signed, under penalty of perjury, and to this day have never been even looked at, to my knowledge. If these people were lying, why are they not being prosecuted for perjury. This AG, in my opinion, has one brain cell left, if he still votes R,in the next presidential election.

You are 100% correct. The cases were stopped on “procedural” issues. The evidence was never allowed. We, as a country, are paying a huge moral and financial price for the democrats hatred of America

AG Barr never revealed any information or details on who investigated, FBI/ Justice, CIA,local/Federal agents, which States were investigated. Where are the reports that Barr based his conclusion on? No wonder he was fired. More recent investigations have shown a number of questionable votes.

Barr is hallucinatory! Plenty of evidence of fraud. Not admitting it doesn’t make it go away. Trump was WAY ahead in all 5 “swing” states but then the CITY mail-ins were “counted” and he fell behind in all five. Trump got plenty of suburban and independent votes–he didn’t get FICTIONAL votes.

THERE IS NO DOUBT… There was fraud (when you have more people voting in a district, than you have registered to vote… how can there not be fraud?) Next, whether it would have affected the outcome is NOT the point! ….FRAUD is the point! Confront it and deal with it!

There was ample reason to INVESTIGATE election FRAUD in about 6-states, enough to overturn Biden’s election and the election of several republican senate and house candidates. Barr was part of a COUP against Trump’s re-election. I am sickened at Washington’s betrayal of our CONSTITUTION. And OUR country suffers from it. We no longer have a GOVERNMENT BY THE PEOPLE, FOR THE PEOPLE.

William Barr is a lying LAZY man. He works hard at NOT working. If he would put that same energy into investigating the corrupt election it would have been thrown out. Barr is both LAZY and corrupt.

Barr has always been deep state but he was recommended and that was the problem. Barr, if you look into his history, upbringing, schools such as Horace Mann, then you see a pattern that is what they are and what they do. Barr is a liar for the deep state and was never loyal to the President. And stay away from the fat burgers, they don’t help, fatso.

There were, literally, 43,000 votes that made the difference in the 2020 election. Only a few key precincts in a few key battleground states needed to be ‘added’ or ‘changed’. It’s all in Mollie Hemingway’s excellent book “Rigged”. Nobody, and I mean NOBODY, with a functional brain believes Joey won. And somebody better be looking to investigate Mark Zuckerberg.

Barr apparently is seeking to enrich himself rather than help save this country. He knows the present administration is absolutely destroying this country, yet he goes around bad-mouthing Trump to fawning media outlets who are Trump haters. Barr knows Trump’s policies were good for the country, yet he has decided to throw in with the corrupt left.
He has proven himself to be just another swamp creature.

Barr is just another Deep State Puppet and knows as well as the rest of America that the 2020 Election was a Corrupted Deep State STEAL. Evidence seems to be coming out daily now in many states. Recounts don’t count as an audit. It also appears that some of the truth aboutn Bill Barr is coming to light.
