The guy who carried the water for a lawless President is coming out with a book that essentially says …
‘Yea…I helped my Boss who IS fucked up’…..
William Barr is urging Republicans to put former President Donald Trump in the rearview mirror in 2024 in favor of the political party’s younger leaders, the former attorney general writes in a new book.
In his upcoming 600-page book, “One Damn Thing After Another,” Barr says he thinks Trump could’ve beaten Joe Biden in 2020 if he had “just exercised a modicum of self-restraint, moderating even a little of his pettiness,” according to the Wall Street Journal.
The conservative lawyer encouraged members of his party to consider “an impressive array of younger candidates” that he did not identify by name — who he believes shares Trump’s agenda but not his “erratic personal behavior,” the book says.
The former attorney general, who served from February 2019 to December 2020, wrote that the former president has “shown he has neither the temperament nor persuasive powers to provide the kind of positive leadership that is needed.”…
In his book, Barr defends himself against accusations that he was protecting Trump when he issued a summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report on his investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
He also dropped the criminal case against Michael Flynn, Trump’s former national security advisor, for lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russian officials during the presidential campaign.
Barr wrote that he had to intervene in those cases because of what he saw as overreach by federal prosecutors.
“Predictably our motion to dismiss the charges led to an election-year media onslaught, flogging the old theme that I was doing this as a favor to Trump,” he wrote in the book. “But I concluded the handling of the Flynn matter by the FBI had been an abuse of power that no responsible AG could let stand.”….
