  • A former federal prosecutor says Bill Barr can incriminate Donald Trump over his election fraud allegations.

  • Barr can provide “directly incriminating evidence,” former prosecutor Glenn Kirschner said.

  • Trump claimed voter fraud despite Barr telling him the 2020 presidential election was not stolen.

Former federal prosecutor Glenn Kirschner has said former US attorney general Bill Barr can incriminate Donald Trump for making false claims that the 2020 presidential election was stolen.

Barr has “incriminating information he can share about Donald Trump. He can provide clear and directly incriminating evidence about Donald Trump’s guilty mindset, his corrupt intent, the mens rea of ​​his criminals,” said Kirschner in a video posted to YouTube on Friday.

Kirschner said Barr could provide evidence against Trump in court because he told the former president in December 2020 after losing the election that his allegations of widespread voter fraud were “bullshit.”

“Every day in the future … that Donald Trump said, ‘The election was stolen, it was fraudulent, stop the theft,’ he was lying and he knew he was lying,” Kirschner said. “Bill Barr, his attorney general, someone in a position to know, said it’s BS, that there’s no voter fraud undermining Joe Biden’s victory.”

“Donald Trump didn’t care. He lied about it, lied about it, lied about it, and then instigated a mob to attack the Capitol and try to shut down the certification of victory for Joe Biden,” Kirschner said. “So Bill Barr has directly and deeply incriminating evidence against Donald Trump.”

Barr, a longtime Trump loyalist who backed him when he made incorrect statements about mail-in voting during his tenure as U.S. attorney general, has become more outspoken against the former president since he left his post.

In February, for example, Barr again outright rejected any allegations of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election, saying in a book that “Trump lost it.”

“The election was not ‘stolen,'” the former attorney general wrote in his book, ‘One Damn Thing After Another.’

“It’s killing me — killing me. It’s pulling the rug out from under me,” Trump told Barr, according to an excerpt from the book published by The Washington Post. “He paused for a moment and then said, ‘You must hate Trump. You would only do this if you hate Trump. “”

Barr in the book said he reminded Trump that he “sacrificed a lot personally to come and help you when I thought you were being wronged.”

But, he said, there was no evidence of widespread voter fraud.

After the 2020 presidential election results, the Trump campaign filed dozens of lawsuits alleging voter fraud, most of which have so far been refused, rejected or withdrawn.

Independent election monitoring groups have repeatedly said there was no widespread voter fraud. After the results were released, for example, The New York Times contacted each state’s election officials, each of whom said there was no evidence the fraud influenced the presidential election.

But even since leaving office, Trump has continued to insist the election was rigged. Republican lawmakers and Trump supporters have also echoed his unsubstantiated claims.
