“All Americans should keep this fact in mind: On the morning of Jan. 6, President Trump’s intention was to remain president of the United States despite the lawful outcome of the 2020 election and in violation of his constitutional obligation to relinquish power,” Rep. Liz Cheney (R-Wyo.), the vice-chair of the House select committee investigating the insurrection, said in a lengthy opening statement that outlined the bulk of the evidence the panel has gathered against Trump.
One of the major highlights of the hearings is former Attorney General William Barr’s testimony and how diametrically opposed his view was to that of the President.
“My attitude was: It was put-up or shut-up time. If there was evidence of fraud, I had no motive to suppress it. But my suspicion all the way along was that there was nothing there. It was all bullshit,” Barr said.
Barr said he “repeatedly told the President, in no uncertain terms, that I did not see evidence of fraud, and — you know, that would have affected the outcome of the election. And frankly, a year and a half later, I haven’t seen anything to change my mind on that,” said Barr.
The Vice-Chair Rep. Liz Cheney said Attorney General Barr also told President Trump that his allegations about Dominion voting machines were groundless.
“I saw absolutely zero basis for the allegations, but they were made in such a sensational way that they obviously were influencing a lot of people, members of the public, that there was this systemic corruption in the system and that their votes didn’t count, and that these machines, controlled by somebody else, were actually determining it, which was complete nonsense. And it was being laid out there. And I told him that it was crazy stuff and they were wasting their time on that and it was doing grave disservice to the country,” Barr said in his interview.
Meanwhile, Former President Trump’s daughter Ivanka was seen on the screen saying she knew her father had lost the election.
“I respect Attorney General Barr, so I accepted what he was saying,” she said of Barr’s assertion there was no widespread election fraud.
