Steve Bannon, a former top political consultant to then-President Donald Trump, railed at former Attorney General William Barr on his Tuesday podcast, calling him a “sellout” who turned on their onetime boss.
Specifically, Bannon took Barr to task as he makes the rounds hawking his new memoir, parts of which are highly critical of Trump.
“Well, he’s Walter Mitty. He’s a nerd and been a nerd all of his life. He not only stabbed Trump in the back, he stabbed the nation in the back,” Bannon said.
“On this hard drive from hell, what he did, he suppressed this information so that what the elites in our country were doing, compromised by the Chinese Communist Party and all of the situation in Ukraine, stealing money with both hands,” Bannon noted.
“Barr, It’s all going to come out… And we’re going to have a field day going into the details of what a total and complete scumbag you are… You had this in December of 2019 (Hunter’s laptop) and you actively suppressed it from the people of the United States,” he continued.
“Don’t worry about joining a law firm. You better lawyer up… Nothing gets me worked up as much as these guys, the scum of the Bush, that are just complete filth and trash,” Bannon railed.
“And we’re going to do it with facts. We’re going to walk you through the facts of what Bill Barr knew and when he knew it. And Chris Wray. Throw Chris Wray into the pile too,” he added.
Barr’s new memoir, “One Damn Thing After Another,” appears to go all-in to assail Trump over his alleged “erratic personal behavior.”
“The 600-page book is due out March 8, and according to a report from the Wall Street Journal, Barr uses it to attack Trump’s credibility, leadership, and temperament — framing his own service in the Trump Administration as a ‘personal sacrifice,’” The Daily Wire reports.
The WSJ notes:
Former Attorney General William Barr writes in a new book that former President Donald Trump has “shown he has neither the temperament nor persuasive powers to provide the kind of positive leadership that is needed,” and that it is time for Republicans to focus on rising new leaders in the party.
Barr is also clear on where he stands regarding Trump’s oft-repeated claims that the 2020 election was “stolen.”
“The election was not ‘stolen.’ Trump lost it,” Barr wrote.
