In opening the first public hearing of the January 6th Committee, Committee Chair Bennie Thompson (D-MI) shared footage of testimony from Bill Barr, who served as Donald Trump’s Attorney General. Barr — who did not take any action to counter Trump’s lies — says that behind the scenes, he told the former president the plan to overturn the election was “bullsh*t.”

Barr, as Vanity Fair has reported, took actions at the time to allow prosecutors to look into the unsubstantiated allegations of election fraud, and initially voiced no public objection to the Big Lie.

Since then, he has said that he never believed the election fraud claims, but he’s also taken public positions that further support the conspiracy theories, such as complaining about the fact that legal ballots were vetted and counted, rather than being thrown out.

Now, we learn that he testified before the January 6th Committee that he warned Trump the whole thing was “bullsh*t” and actually quit because of the Big Lie.

“I had three discussions with the president that I can recall…in that context I made it clear that I did not agree with the idea of saying that the election was stolen, and putting out this stuff, which I told the president was bullsh*t.” I didn’t want to be a part of it…you can’t live in a world where the incumbent administration stays in power based on its view, unsupported by specific evidence, that there was fraud in the election.”
