Trump tears into 'RINO' Bill Barr for being a 'disappointment in every sense' in response to claims his AG thought election fraud clams were 'bulls***t'

 Donald Trump shot back at 'disappointment' Bill Barr on Sunday night for 'letting down the American people' after a report emerged that his former attorney general thought the election fraud investigation was 'bulls**t' from the start.

'RINO former Attorney General Bill Barr failed to investigate election fraud, and really let down the American people,' Trump said in a statement from his Save America political action committee email.

The term 'RINO', or Republican in name only, has been dubbed an insult to those on the right who identify as Republicans but pro-Trumpers feel are not Republican enough.


'It's people in authority like Bill Barr that allow the crazed Radical Left to succeed,' the former president continued in his statement. 'He and other RINOs in the Republican Party are being used in order to try to convince people that the election was legitimate when so many incredible facts have now come out to show conclusively that it wasn't.'

Trump has repeated his claims nearly daily that the 2020 presidential election was stolen and rigged by Democrats for Joe Biden.

Barr said, according to excerpts from an upcoming book published on Sunday, that he only really launched a Justice Department probe into Trump's voter fraud claims because he wanted to cover his bases when the then-president came to him about it.

'My attitude was: It was put-up or shut-up time,' Barr told Axios' Jonathan Karl. 'If there was evidence of fraud, I had no motive to suppress it.'

'But my suspicion all the way along was that there was nothing there. It was all bulls**t,' he added. 'Instead of doing his job, he did the opposite and told people within the Justice Department not to investigate the election.'

Trump said in his statement that it was then-Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell who pressured Barr to downplay GOP claims of voter fraud because he was worried about losing Republican Senate seats in two runoff elections in Georgia at the time.

Bill told Karl in interviews published in The Atlantic Sunday, that he concluded early on when declaring the investigation that it was highly unlikely that any evidence existed that would change that outcome of the 2020 election.

'He came in with a semi-bang and went out with a whimper,' Trump wrote Sunday of his former DOJ head, claiming he 'did nothing about' COVID-era election rules that he said left the ballots 'very open to fraud.'

'Bill Barr was a disappointment in every sense of the word,' he added.

Instead of doing his job, he did the opposite and told people within the Justice Department not to investigate the election.

Barr said he opened an investigation because he knew former Trump was going to confront him about his claims of fraud and a 'rigged' election, and he wanted to be able to say he looked into it and found nothing.

The former attorney general said that McConnell urged him to keep in good favor with Trump, but also speak out against election fraud claims because he felt he wasn't in a good position to do so himself.

'Look, we need the president in Georgia,' McConnell said, according to Barr. 'And so we cannot be frontally attacking him right now.'

At the time, the Republicans were vying in two key Senate runoff elections in Georgia, which ultimately decided the Democratic majority in the upper chamber after both Republican incumbents were defeated.

Barr said McConnell told him: 'You're in a better position to inject some reality into this situation. You are really the only one who can do it.'

Trump responded to this part of the report with: 'Now it was revealed that Barr was being pushed to tell lies about the election by Mitch McConnell, another beauty, who was worried about damaging the Republicans chances in the Georgia runoff.'

'What really damaged the Senate Republicans was allowing their races to be rigged and stolen, and worse, the American people to no longer believe their vote matters because spineless RINOs like Bill Barr and Mitch McConnell did nothing,' he accused.

Following Joe Biden's declared win in November 2020, Trump immediately launched claims of widespread voter fraud by Democrats and began a series of lawsuits and probes into the election – especially involving the mass amount of mail in ballots in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.

The former president is still spewing these claims, including at his first post-presidency rally in Ohio on Saturday night where he said that he is the legitimate election winner. 

'This was the scam of the century and this was the crime of the history,' he said to a massive crowd gathered in Wellington, Ohio.

Last December, Barr told the Associated Press: 'To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election.'

Karl said Barr told him about a conversation he had with Trump after the report went out.

'Did you say that?' Trump had asked Barr, according to the former attorney general.

'Yes,' Barr responded.

'How the f**k could you do this to me? Why did you say it?' he shot back

'Because it's true,' Barr said he told the then-outgoing president.

'You must hate Trump. You must hate Trump,' he responded, referring to himself in the third person.


Trump insisted to supporters at his Ohio rally Saturday that in some states there were 'more votes than voters', that there was 'North Korean-style turnout' and that 'ballots were wheeled in backdoors.'

'There's just mountains of evidence,' Trump claimed, adding that Democrats 'used COVID in order to cheat.'

He said the Trump campaign lost dozens of court cases because 'many of our judges were gutless.'

'And I am ashamed of our Supreme Court,' the ex-president said.

The court, which skews 6-3 conservative thanks to three Trump nominees making it through in his four years, refused to take up the election fraud cases.


Trump gave a shout out to MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell, who has been publicly pushing the conspiracy that Trump won.

'Where's Mike, the pillow man?' Trump asked the crowd as he referred to Lindell as a 'patriot.'

He also raged at the government's treatment of the 'greatest mayor in the history of New York' Rudy Giuliani, who lost his law license Thursday over the election fraud farce. He also had his home raided by the FBI earlier this year and 18 electronic devices were seized.

'I'm not the one trying to undermine American democracy, I'm the one trying to save American democracy,' Trump went on.
