Barr Says Trump Never Understood Department of Justice Role

Former President Trump ranted against former attorney general William Barr in a letter to "NBC Nightly News" anchor Lester Holt, who interviewed Barr about his new book, "One Damn Thing After Another." Trump said Barr is “groveling to the media, hoping to gain acceptance that he doesn’t deserve,” Axios reports. Barr told Holt that Trump became "very angry" when the attorney general told him that there was no evidence the 2020 election was rigged. Barr said Trump never really understood "the role of the Department of Justice [and] to some extent, you know, the president's role."

Trump said that, "ANTIFA, BLM, and 50 many others have gotten away with, literally, murder, where others have been, in many cases, persecuted. It is now a fact that my campaign was spied on ... This is treason that has now been confirmed by [special prosecutor] John Durham. Barr was unwilling, or unable, to act in a timely fashion on this and other important matters." Trump added, "I would imagine that if the book is anything like him, it will be long, slow, and very boring."
