The interview caused his boss to explode, many people who knew about his reaction said.
On Thursday, he did not say whether Trump had confidence in the bar.
“Ask me in several weeks from now. They should be watching all these scams,” Trump said after taking a moment to answer a question asked by reporters at the Oval Office for the Medal of Freedom ceremony.
Trump reiterated on Thursday the baseless claims of “massive fraud” and “tough elections.” State officials and the bar say there is no evidence of widespread electoral fraud.
“He did nothing. He didn’t see it (for cheating in the Georgia election),” Trump said of Bar and his administration of justice.
The Justice Department declined to comment Thursday on the Trump-Bar relationship.
However, a few hours after the attorney general commented to the Associated Press on Tuesday, a spokesman appeared to be attempting to recover the loss, saying the department had not completed its election fraud investigation and therefore had not “confirmed no fraud in the election.”
A spokesman for the Justice Department said in a statement that “the department will receive all serious and credible allegations of fraud as soon as possible and pursue them seriously.”
Although White House Press Secretary Kylie McEnney said Wednesday that she did not know if Trump and Barr met when they were at the White House on Tuesday, sources described the meeting as controversial, but said the president was not shouting at Barr.
Whose guess is whether he will do it in the end.
Trump is still sensitive about shooting someone with bar-like ability after the fall he experienced from firing FBI Director James Comedy. Trump is worried about the legal consequences after his resignation and the removal of the Attorney General will cause him more problems.
The comments barred to the AP indicate the latest official reprimand from Republicans, with the president claiming widespread fraud in the loss to Joe Biden.
“To date, we have not seen any frauds on the scale of a different outcome in the election,” Barr said.
Echoing Trump’s claims that mail-in voting is not safe before the election, Barr said both the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security’s fraudulent claims have been vacated.
Two attorneys working for Trump quickly rejected Barr’s assessment on Tuesday, repeating the argument that “they have enough evidence for illegal voting in at least six states,” saying the attorney general was not private.
Lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis said in a statement:
The lawyers, who have been rejected by multiple courts in states across the country, have so far shown no evidence to back up their claims and their efforts will soon be confirmed or confirmed by several states – including the main states of Michigan, Georgia and Pennsylvania – or their results.
Several other prominent Republican officials, including Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, have also denied from the president that their state election is safe.
Last week, the Georgian government rejected Trump’s calls to manipulate state election results, saying Brian Kemp and Georgia’s foreign secretary were also safe in their elections.
The main frustration for Trump with the bar that failed to support Trump’s voter fraud claims was the lack of a report from John Durham. Trump and his senior White House staff are of the opinion that they will come out before the election, and Trump will ask, “Where is this?”
