On Sunday (June 11), former President Donald Trump repeatedly attacked his former attorney general, Bill Barr, with insults, including calling Barr “a coward who didn’t do his job,” arguing that “virtually everybody” except Barr considers the former President’s recent federal indictment a “disgrace.”

In an interview on “The Roger Stone Show” on 77 WABC, Trump declared his indictment “a disgrace,” saying that everyone thinks so “other than a low life like Barr,” who he noted he “terminated because he was gutless [and] wouldn’t do what you’re supposed to do.

The interview was the debut episode of the longtime Trump ally’s radio show and the former President’s first media interview since he was indicted Thursday (June 8) on 37-count stemming from his handling of classified material after leaving the White House.

Trump shared his thoughts that Barr is a “coward” and “didn’t do his job.”

The former President recalled how Barr “was desperately afraid of being impeached,” highlighting that Democrats were planning to impeach Barr although there was “no reason” to impeach him.

Trump explained that although his administration had “unbelievable people,” but described Barr as a “mistake.”

Barr served as attorney general during the Trump administration until leaving the Department of Justice in December 2020, parting ways with Trump, saying publicly that the FBI and DOJ found no evidence to support the then-president’s allegations of widespread voter fraud in the presidential election from 2020.

Barr recently criticized the characterization of Trump as the victim of a politically motivated “witch hunt” as “ridiculous.”
