Trump was responsible for the January 6 attack on the Capitol

Former Attorney General Bill Barr revealed to Lester Holt that he believes the former President donald trump was responsible for the January 6 attack on the US Capitol. However, he also says that he “saw nothing to indicate that he was legally responsible in terms of hate speech”.

Barr sat down with Holt to promote his upcoming announcement Book One damn thing at a time the full interview will be broadcast next Sunday as a primetime special called Bill Barr: In the Eye of the Storm. As the NBC press release reveals, it is Barr’s first televised interview since stepping down as attorney general in the Trump administration.

An excerpt of the video was shared TODAY, which was sent with a press release that read:

March 4, 2022 – Exclusively to NBC News, former US Attorney General William Barr shares with NBC News’ Lester Holt that he believes President Trump was responsible for the Jan. 6 attack on Capitol Hill, saying, “I think he was largely responsible for the meaning of that word, since it seemed part of the plan to send that group up the hill. I think the whole idea was to intimidate Congress. And I think that was wrong.”

He also says, “I haven’t seen anything to suggest that he was legally responsible in terms of inciting.”

During the session, Barr also said that President Trump, while alleging voter fraud in 2020, told Trump, “The reason you are where you are is because you put on a clown show of lawyers.”

Barr’s assertion that Trump is responsible for the attacks but that he falls short of legal responsibility will certainly be seen by his detractors as the kind of cowardly behavior that made Trump’s behavior possible.

A previously released clip of the interview showed Barr recounting how he came to resign from the Trump administration after telling the then-president that claims of a stolen election were bullshit.
