The former guy ranted about his former attorney general Bill Barr in a three-page letter to Lester Holt, who interviewed Barr about his new book, saying that Barr was “groveling to the media, hoping to gain acceptance that he doesn’t deserve.”
“I would imagine that if the book is anything like him, it will be long, slow, and very boring,” Trump wrote in his letter to Holt.
The interview was aired Sunday evening, when Barr said he held Trump responsible for January 6 “in the broad sense,” trying to intimidate Congress, but added, “I haven’t seen anything to say he was legally responsible for it in terms of incitement.”
When asked about TFG taking classified documents from the White House as the National Archives has said, Barr suggested it was probably not illegal for Trump to do that, and would not have likely investigated the matter.
“The whole classification system is done under executive order. It’s the president. The president decides everything,” Barr said, although there’s no indication Trump formally declassified the documents that left the White House with him.
