Trump Slams Fox News for Listening to Former Attorney General Bill Barr – Watch
Former President Donald Trump lashed out on Tuesday at Fox News. He was angry that they gave a platform to former Attorney General Bill Barr on their network.
Trump sent a message fuming over this on Truth Social to his followers, and it was written in all capital letters:
“WHY DOES FOX KEEP PUTTING ON BILL BARR. AS ATTORNEY GENERAL HE WAS A COMPLETE COWARD WHO WAS ABSOLUTELY PETRIFIED OF BEING IMPEACHED, WHICH THE DEMOCRATS THREATENED TO DO UNTIL HE BECAME THEIR VIRTUAL “SLAVE” AND REFUSED TO INVESTIGATE AND PROSECUTE THE MASSIVE ELECTION FRAUD THAT TOOK PLACE IN THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, BY FAR THE RADICAL LEFT’S GREATEST CONCERN. HE SAID HE DID INVESTIGATE, BUT HE DIDN’T HAVE THE “GUTS” TO PROPERLY DO SO, AND NOW WE HAVE A NATION IN MASSIVE DECLINE!,” Trump wrote.
These words from the former president came after Democrat District Attorney of New York Alvin Bragg indicted him on Thursday.
Bragg is likely going to argue that Trump classifying a reimbursement in October 2016 to his then-lawyer Michael Cohen for “hush money” to porn actress Stormy Daniels as legal expenses was a state crime of falsifying business records.
But this, at most, would be considered a misdemeanor, so Bragg will seek to upgrade that to a felony by arguing it was done specifically to hide another crime. And he will argue that this is the federal campaign finance crime of not reporting the payment as a campaign expense.
During an interview Friday on Fox Business, Barr said Bragg’s indictment against Trump was an “abomination.”
He added, “It’s the epitome of the abuse of prosecutorial power to bring a case that would not be brought against anyone else. They are going after the man, not a crime. And the legal theory, frankly, is pathetically weak.”
But on Fox News Sunday, Barr said that Trump should not testify in the criminal case against him.
Barr commented, “I’m not his lawyer, but generally, I think it’s a bad idea to go on the stand, and I think it’s a particularly bad idea for Trump because he lacks all self-control. It’d be very difficult to prepare him and keep him testifying in a prudent fashion.”
