(DailyVantage.com) – During an interview with Fox News, former Attorney General Bill Barr talked about the various criminal trials involving Donald Trump and whether the multiple criminal investigations into the former president were election interference from political rivals.
While on Fox, Barr discussed the pending legal action involving his former boss. He clarified that any claims of election interference regarding Trump’s criminal cases are “simply wrong. Barr regularly criticizes Trump when appearing on mainstream media outlets like Fox News or CNN. Barr consistently claims that Trump’s misconduct prompted the ongoing criminal cases against him rather than political interference from Trump’s rivals in Washington, D.C.
Although Barr defended Trump against two of the four indictments against him, Barr claims that the other indictments against the former president are legally sound and concerned with Trump’s alleged misconduct rather than being politically motivated, as many citizens claim on social media. Despite Barr’s claims, Trump remains adamant that the ongoing criminal cases against him result from a political witch hunt and are part of a concentrated effort to hinder his election campaign against President Joe Biden.
Barr recently defended Trump against the latest indictment against the former president, which originated in Georgia. Despite defending Trump, Barr claimed he would be convicted federally before 2025 in one of the four cases against him. Barr stated the Fulton County indictment against
Trump is too broad and lacks a solid foundation to charge the former president. Trump is accused of using his influence to affect the outcome of the 2020 election and attempting to overturn election results in Georgia. Barr also claims the charges against Trump in Manhattan are a “political hit job” solely based on political affiliation rather than genuine criminal concerns. Barr’s defense of Trump shocked many, as the former attorney general remains one of Trump’s staunchest critics when discussing his time serving under the former president.
While Barr claims the charges against Trump are not active election interference, many Americans feel otherwise. Trump’s campaign received record donations following Trump’s arrest in Georgia, and the former president currently polls the best of any 2024 presidential candidate. Despite this increase in support, Trump faces an uphill battle as his legal cases unfold during the primary season.
