Trump’s AG Barr on Trump’s claim the election was “stolen”: “The idea was bullshit” and “I didn’t want to be a part of it.”

In this testimony before the January 6 Committee released on June 14, former U.S. Attorney General under Trump, William Barr, says he disagreed with Trump telling the public the election was stolen and he told the president the idea was “bullshit”:

“I did not agree with the idea of saying the election was stolen and putting out this stuff which I told the President was bullshit, and you know, I didn’t want to be a part of it. 

And that’s one of the reasons that went into me deciding to leave. When I did, I observed, I think it was on December 1st, you know, how can … we can’t live in a world where where the incumbent administration stays in power based on its view, unsupported by specific evidence, that … there was fraud in the election.”

    gettin your shots ?

  2. day coming soon when the Masses claim
    ” HEY JOE WASN’T MY FAULT ! MY BALLOT WAS TRAFFICKED!”

    Biden regime insiders reveal that without Joe’s regular ‘dosing’ overseen by “Dr” ( not that kind of doctor) Jill,
    that dealing with joe is like dealing with a toddler. That why they hid him in the rec room in the basement during the campaign , and have such a mess now that he must go stumble around in public on occasion.

  3. … And and and then President Trump (45. 47.) reached through the bulletproof plexiglass, put the Secret Service agent in a sleeper hold from behind,
    waving a noose while screaming ‘This is MAGA Country!’
    then threw a potentially lethal Subway sammich at the responding minions.

    thank goodness sloJoe put this country back on the path! … to recession and nuclear conflict

  4. LOL great typo-check Ms. Seamy, ol chap. You are the Green M&M in my Van Halen concert, truly you are the wind beneath my beans.
    thank you for your service ¯\_ (ツ)_/¯

    Some (ex) assistant to the 2nd assistant swears Trump threw his lunch against a wall and grabbed the steering wheel. uh huh. pass the salty please . Oh and two Secret Service agents are offering to testify under oath against former aide’s ‘fraudulent’ assault claims.

    In other news , Robby Mook, hiLIARy’s actual CAMPAIGN MANAGER has testified on penalty of perjury that hiLIARy was a driving force, she was in on the Russian Collusion Hoax from the ground floor.

    Next, elements in the DOJ, the FIB and the Clowns In Action pushed the story out, all the while knowing it was a Hiliary Clitanon dirty trick , an in-house fabrication, and practically the entire Main Stream MissLeadia pushed that lie ceaselessly for 5 years.

    So sedition, treason, fraud, campaign dirty tricks, and a DNC/MSM cabal are mere trifles to conveniently forget & trod into the muck, while attempting to cobble together the latest “badmanorange got big mad” story.

    Whats this ? Now it surfaces that the The January 6 Pipe Bombs Look Like Another FBI Hoax ?? involving a $92M contract with FirstNet. And GUESS who worked for FirstNet? Karlin Younger, the woman who just HAPPENED to be doing her laundry that afternoon and just HAPPENED to notice a “pipe bomb” by RNC HQ on her way to laundry facility. A crazy coincidence, right?

    annnnd 18 months later—no suspect. no mention of pipe bomber by J6 committee. no promised report from FBI investigation.

    • Sound and fury…
      Let anyone who wants to testify in the Congressional Hearing; even your Cheeto Messiah.

      Of course, he can’t do that, because he literally can’t stop lying.

      Any other “punny business” you want to spew?

  5. trump will be right , again. Still surprised ?

    “I hardly know who this person, Cassidy Hutchinson, is, other than I heard very negative things about her (a total phony and “leaker”), and when she requested to go with certain others of the team to Florida after my having served a full term in office, I personally turned her request down. Why did she want to go with us if she felt we were so terrible? I understand that she was very upset and angry that I didn’t want her to go, or be a member of the team. She is bad news!”

    • Let’s see – one’s a dedicated public servant, a Republican, under oath…
      The other is a confirmed liar and proven fraud.

      • oppsie. take the L; The J6 shamittie again exposed as liars even before todays car chase & bloopers reel during the closing credits

        “Former Trump White House lawyer Eric Herschmann is claiming that a handwritten note regarding a potential statement for then-President Donald Trump to release during the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol was written by him during a meeting at the White House that afternoon, and not by White House aide Cassidy Hutchinson, sources familiar with the matter tell ABC News.

        At Tuesday’s Jan. 6 committee hearing, Rep. Liz Cheney displayed a handwritten note which Hutchinson testified she wrote after Trump chief of staff Mark Meadows handed her a note card and pen to take his dictation.

        Sources familiar with the matter said that Herschmann had previously told the committee that he had penned the note.

        “The handwritten note that Cassidy Hutchinson testified was written by her was in fact written by Eric Herschmann on January 6, 2021,” a spokesperson for Herschmann told ABC News Tuesday evening.

        “All sources with direct knowledge and law enforcement have and will confirm that it was written by Mr. Herschmann,” the spokesperson said.

      • Im not sure who is who in your claim above? ;

        the ” dedicated public servant & Republican oath-taker ”
        was just exposed for perjury live + pre-recorded, shown on public air waves,
        and she was exposed before she even left the Big Screen D&P show.

        The J6 con-Mitty didn’t even think to substantiate her sob stories with the obvious candidates such as the Secret Service agents who were present on the scene … meanwhile Hutchinson was admittedly NOT present.
        The SS agents are will to swear in.
        I much doubt Cheney & Benny will give them a call.

        but yeah, the orangeman bad-touched you & it hurts so bad.
        and apparently Trump was Right. Again.

        • Oh, look, another triggered Trumpsucker, another creepy reference to sexual assault to make him feel comfortable. What with Tina losing, and the truths about Trump coming out, you’re going to have to dig real deep into your fantasies to cope.

    • Here’s what Trump was whining about:
      ——- NY Times, 06/28/2022:
      WASHINGTON — The surprise hearing on Tuesday of the special House committee investigating the Jan. 6 attack lived up to the drama that preceded it, providing the most detailed and intimate picture yet of President Donald J. Trump’s actions as a mob was assaulting the Capitol in his name.

      The explosive and cinematic firsthand testimony from Cassidy Hutchinson, a trusted longtime aide of Mark Meadows, the White House chief of staff, portrayed the president as almost unhinged with fury when his Secret Service detail told him he could not go to the Capitol as his supporters, many of them armed, descended on it. Ms. Hutchinson said Mr. Trump knew of the threat of violence by his supporters but was unconcerned by it, since they were not targeting him; and that he sympathized with them as they chanted for the execution of Vice President Mike Pence, who had refused his entreaties to overturn the election. And she testified that senior aides had tried in vain to persuade Mr. Trump to call off the mob, but he resisted for hours. Her testimony was replete with stunning revelations.

      Here are six main takeaways:

      ‘They are not here to hurt me.’ Trump encouraged an armed mob to go to Capitol Hill.
      Upset that the crowd at his rally on Jan. 6, 2021, didn’t fill the cordoned-off space on the Ellipse, a furious Mr. Trump ordered security officials to allow people milling outside the security perimeter into the space so the event would appear well attended. Informed that some of those people were standing outside because they had weapons and didn’t want to pass through metal detectors, the president urged that they be allowed in anyway.

      “They are not here to hurt me,” he said, according to Ms. Hutchinson, who was within earshot of the president at the time. Using a string of expletives, she testified, Mr. Trump said he wanted the security features removed. She also said the president had been told that the crowd of his supporters were threatening violence and had come armed including with guns, knives, spears and flagpoles, and wearing body armor. Mr. Trump encouraged them to go to the Capitol anyway, a detail that could prove legally problematic for him.

      Trump refused to call off the mob.
      Ms. Hutchinson provided sworn testimony of an accusation that the panel has alluded to previously — that, despite the violence at the Capitol and the threats to Vice President Mike Pence, Mr. Trump refused repeated exhortations from his staff to intervene. Responding to a series of appeals from Pat Cipollone, the White House counsel, Mr. Meadows said that Mr. Trump was not inclined to try to call off the mob, according to Ms. Hutchinson’s account. “He doesn’t want to do anything,” Mr. Meadows told the White House lawyer when informed that violence was breaking out. Mr. Cipollone tried a second time, noting that the mob was chanting, “Hang Mike Pence.”

      “You heard him, Pat, he thinks Mike deserves it,” Ms. Hutchinson said Mr. Meadows responded. “He doesn’t think they are doing anything wrong.”

      Trump had bouts of fury.
      Mr. Trump was prone to rage as his attempts to get the election results overturned fell on deaf ears in his administration.

      Upon learning on Dec. 1 that Attorney General William P. Barr had publicly declared the allegations of widespread voter fraud unfounded, Ms. Hutchinson said Trump slammed his lunch against a wall in his dining room in the White House, as she learned from the valet who cleaned up the broken china and ketchup dripping down the wall.

      “There were several times throughout my tenure with the chief of staff that I was aware of him either throwing dishes or flipping the tablecloth to let all the contents of the table go on to the floor and likely break or go everywhere,” she said of the president.

      Ms. Hutchinson said she had been told that on Jan. 6, an irate Mr. Trump, when informed he could not go to the Capitol to join his supporters, sought to wrench the steering wheel away from the Secret Service agent driving him. He continued to press to head there even after they returned to the White House.

      Two top Trump advisers sought pardons after Jan. 6
      Mr. Meadows and Rudolph W. Giuliani, the former New York City mayor and Mr. Trump’s personal lawyer, both sought pardons from Mr. Trump before he left office in case they were implicated criminally in any events leading up to Jan. 6 or the assault itself. As she closed her testimony, Ms. Hutchinson stated very clearly that her former boss had joined Mr. Giuliani in asking for a pardon, though neither was granted one. Just their interest in obtaining clemency demonstrated they were worried about the potential consequences from their efforts on the president’s behalf.

      She also testified that at one point, Mr. Cipollone said he had serious concerns about what Mr. Trump had planned that day, including his desire to march to the Capitol. “We’re going to get charged with every crime imaginable,” Ms. Hutchinson quoted Mr. Cipollone as saying.

      Trump’s cabinet weighed removing him after Jan. 6
      Members of the president’s Cabinet were distressed enough by the assault on the Capitol and the president’s encouragement of the mob and refusal to intervene that they quietly discussed invoking the 25th Amendment to remove him from office, Ms. Hutchinson testified. The ignominious prospect of being the first president to be subject to the amendment was one of the reasons he agreed to record a video on Jan. 7 committing to a peaceful transfer of power.

      The panel believes Trump is discouraging cooperation with its inquiry.
      Members of the committee are hoping that Ms. Hutchinson’s willingness to come forward and provide such significant testimony will encourage others still holding back to do the same.

      “To that group of witnesses, if you’ve heard this testimony today and suddenly you remember things you couldn’t previously recall, or there’s some details you’d like to clarify, or you discovered some courage you had hidden away somewhere, our doors remain open,” Representative Bennie Thompson, Democrat of Mississippi and chairman of the committee, said.

      Representative Liz Cheney, Republican of Wyoming and vice chairwoman of the committee, suggested the panel had learned of attempts by Mr. Trump and his allies to influence witnesses and would be considering a response to such efforts.

      ——————————

      For the rest of history, this is what people will associate that MAGA hat and TRUMP 2020 / 2024 flags with; a lying coward who wanted his minions to literally kill his own Vice President for refusing to break the law.

      Be proud.

  6. Senate Sergeant at Arms Michael Stenger, who was in charge of securing the Capitol on January 6, dies one day before the Capitol riot committee is set to call a “surprise hearing” to present ‘newly uncovered evidence’ from some willing nobody

    Stenger, who resigned the day after the January 6 fed-riot amid criticism of his handling , said back in February 2021 that the role of ‘professional agitators’ needed to be investigated.

    Stenger testified that there was paid professional agitators at January 6th which needs to be ( but isn’t being) investigated.

    The TV exec fluffing up the J6 D&P show is distraught; now ANOTHER LEO (Stenger) has died as a ‘direct consequence’ of the j6 unarmed fedsurrection, but they can’t hold a state funeral since he was flagging the actual perps who are not the chosen perps.

  7. Ghislaine’s sentencing is today , so the J6 D&P show announced a unexpected hearing after recently cancelling the series, presenting evidence they had for months , mysteriously relevant for some reaso… HEY LOOK A SQUIRREL! LOOK OVER HERE! not over there.

    sick and sad, but very predictable. even better;

    “Additionally, Hutchinson told the Committee that those lawmakers “felt that he had the authority to—pardon me if my phrasing isn’t correct on this, but—send votes back to the states or the electors back to the states.”

    It is relatively common for House reps to take issue with electoral votes from states when they have concerns about the voting procedure in that state, or the closeness of an electoral contest.

    Democrat lawmakers attempted to do this prior to confirming 2016 Trump’s electoral college votes, and GOP lawmakers did the same with Biden’s votes from contentious, battleground states.”

    now with The Hill & Slate ect gushing over this latest minion singing from the j6 song sheet, I expect another big Nada Burger

    • It’s a good thing you didn’t watch Hutchinson’s testimony. You’d have shrieked yourself hoarse, deflecting, denying, and distracting.

      She was straightforward, calm, and quite convincing.

      Trump knew what was going to happen, encouraged it to happen, and refused to call off his wild-eyed, mouth-breathing, violent sychophants, even as FOX mouthpieces and his own staff begged him to do what was right for the country. He refused.

      This is what you’re defending. A traitor, a coward, and a wannabe dictator. Just your type.

      • Yeah, I misspelled “sycophants”; as someone who actually loves this country, I’m still a little put off over what Trump and his minions almost did to it.

  8. I try to make complicated points simple enough for even you, but this blog doesn’t allow a Crayola font. Do you own homework; this aint your old school days feeding the dog neglected assignments.

    Its no secret that many many rinos are globalist traitors and opportunistic hypocrites. Doesn’t change the fact we already long knew that most demoncrats /DNC/ect would have no standards at all , if not for ever-changing double standards. Are ya feelin good now? Ready to strut around the chess board kickin over the pieces ?

    A spectrum of DS scum are profiting while in clueless provocation of WW3, and are selling out & destroying the US & world as an ‘unfortunate by product’.

    Meanwhile the Good Guy , Joe Biden left a 2018 voicemail for Hunter saying he wanted to talk to him about a report on Hunter’s business deals in China. But but but Biden repeatedly said he “never discussed” business with Hunter, although he DID speak to his son about his relationship with criminal dubbed the ‘spy chief of China’.

    Joe Biden financed Hunter Biden’s participation in an escort ring tied to Russia, wiring $100,000 to Hunter from Dec. 2018 -to- Jan. 2019, the same timeframe he spent 30k on escorts tied to .ru email addresses. Enjoy the video of Hunter Biden accosting a Russian escort pleading with her to accept cash after he beat her in a little session.

    Jan. 18, 2019 : Joe Biden wires $5,000 to Hunter

    • “Do your own homework” = “I’m too chickenshit to show my source, because I’m concealing some element of the issue that will give context that blows my lame argument out of the water”.

      So, you can spin and spew all you want, wild theories, lame distractions, garbled paragraphs of Comet Ping-Pong Pizza level garbage…it’s all nonsense, because you have no facts.

      One again, you take up a page with nothing, and it takes just a few sentences to expose your lies and intellectual cowardice.

  9. Forty Democrats Labeled Ukraine’s Azov Battalion a Terrorist Organization in 2019. They compared them to ISIS and blamed them for the Christchurch shooter .

    then they sent them $31 billion in weapons.

    The letter was signed by prominent Democrats such as Rep. Bennie G. Thompson, Rep. Eliot L. Engel, Rep. Jamie Raskin, Rep. Stephen F. Lynch, Rep. Jim Cooper, Rep. Gregory Meeks, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, Rep. Ro Khanna, and Rep. Al Green.

    you didnt listen to them and you haven’t listen to one word Gregg Phillips has uttered because you can only let others think for you. I would a month of Slavko ALL GLORY UKRAINE! than a hardly original thought of yours

    Have you considered writing a script for that zuckerbucks / winkle voss twins flossy yarn ?
    …. I have a feeling it would make a great movie

    • Uh huh. What was the resolution, and how many Republicans signed it?

      Again, it’s not what you say, but what you’re too chickenshit to say, that tells the real story.

  10. Bill Bar has refused invitations to even meet with, let alone review the genuine data & legitimate analysis behind the 2000 Mules with the True The Vote organization.
    Won’t even watch the must-see movie …

    Bill Barr scoffs at TTV’s geo-tracking data, although Bill Barr headed a a branch of the federal government that spends million annually on the same data for investigations.

    His testimony above regards seems to stop in early December.

    I’m still watching from my trusty fencepost; either Bill Barr is either another lying ( or Nelsonian) swamp rat sell out of towering but not unique stature ( known as a Bush family Fixer) , or a player in a brilliant plan to wake up yet another segment of delusional people who think 2020 was legitimate , when he reverses his analysis due to “new information”. Meanwhile I suggest the left put full faith in new strange bedfellow Bill Barr either way. He will be dust binned by factual developments and he will make you salty sad.

    Let us not forget ( or hear about for time , more likely for this crowd …) the “Executive Order on Imposing Certain Sanctions in the Event of Foreign Interference in a United States Election” , the report which was badly bungled and late , apparently due to intel agency non-cooperation. It still exists even if ignored by the lapdog media. tictictic

    I also recommend to maintain health popcorn reserves to survive into Fall ’22

      • You apparently have a weak grasp on how Cabinet-appointment sausage are made. Trumps “right-hand” man Barr was handed-right to him, with the highest recommendations for sure! Another hero of the left Lindsey G gushed over him

        I am so very confused;

        are we championing the Bush -era Barr, famous for tracking down down the cabal’s missing $100milli in cash & coke way back in the Noreiga/Contra days ( see Gary Webb , a clue- for the -less) . When fun times lead to … you guess it ! Arkansas. hmmm who was gov back then ?

        or are we celebrating the BIll Barr who put Durham out of reach of the renegade biden DOJ?

        or the Hero who Speaks Truth to Power now that he landed some juicy quotes regarding his near 2-year old Nelsonian Ignorance on the 2020 debacle ?

        Keeping it straight is almost as hard as chosing between a “J6 Was an Insurrection – Support Our Institutions” Rally and the ” Ignore the Supreme Court , take the streets & hunt down Justices” the next block over. I’d like to cut back on $5 gas, can we just combine the events.

        I mean, if there WAS a cabal of out of control intel operators, warmonger internationalist industrialists, ultra wealthy families and grifter politicians and .. .it would be on the News, right ?
        RIGHT ?

        • That’s a lot of caterwauling to try and deflect from the simple fact that D’Souza’s latest pile of crap was soundly and irrefutably debunked.
          It’s so much easier to be concise when the truth is on your side.
