Bill Barr has a new book out, so he’s been traveling from talking head show to vapid talking head show, trying to make his point of view sound interesting while also not totally infuriating the MAGA voters that watch Fox.
Particularly egregious have been his lies about the Hunter Biden laptop.
For example, when discussing the issue with Fox, he said he was “shocked” by Biden’s lying about the laptop and whether it was real or Russian disinformation:
“He’s squarely confronted with the laptop, and he suggested that it was Russian disinformation and pointed to the letter written by some intelligence people that was baseless—which he knew was a lie. And I was shocked by that.”
Of course, speaking about that letter written by those intel officials, Barr tried to cover his A** and also said:
“As soon as this letter came out from the so-called intelligence specialists, the DNI, John Radcliffe at the time, and the FBI – which worked for me – both came out and said this was not the result of Russian disinformation, The media ignored that completely just kept on going with the disinformation lie.”
Perhaps he did say something, but even if he did he didn’t say it anywhere near vociferously enough to get people to go back to paying attention to the laptop. People believed what the intel officials said for the longest time because Barr’s FBI was mostly silent about it while the leftie talking heads continually brought up Russia.
Further, under Barr the FBI did nothing with the laptop, which contains quite a bit of compromising information on at least Hunter and possibly the Bidens generally. Rather than use the laptop to protect the man he was working for, Barr seems to have just ignored it.
And that might have been the worst part about what Bill Barr did, as Giuliani said in a recent video with Emerald Robinson:
“The FBI first had access to this information [ i.e. the Hunter Biden laptop] for two and a half years. It deliberately covered it up for a year and a half — and so did phony [Bill] Barr who is making a pathetic fool of himself now. He held back that hard drive for a year and a half when it would have completely cleared the President of the United States. There never would have been an impeachment. He should be ashamed of himself, and he should give up his license to practice law.”
Watch him say that here:

Further, as she pointed out on her substack, what Barr was up to rather than using the laptop to attack Biden was framing patriots for crimes: rather than going after Hunter or Joe, Barr and the FBI were setting up patriots in Michigan for a plot to kidnap Whitmer. As Robinson put it:
The problem with Bill Barr’s version of events regarding the laptop is clear to anyone who owns a calendar. Allow me to summarize it in simple terms. Who was the Attorney General when the FBI obtained Hunter Biden’s laptop in 2019, and thus who allowed the FBI to hide it from the public in order to help Joe Biden before the 2020 election? Bill Barr.
That’s not a question that anyone is going to ask Bill Barr at the lefty outlets where he likes to puff himself these days. Of course, there are plenty of contenders for Bill Barr’s least favorite question. Here’s another one: who was the Attorney General when the FBI fabricated an entire militia group for the Governor Whitmer kidnapping hoax that was used to hurt President Trump before the 2020 election?
You guessed it: Bill Barr.
Barr is a fraud of a patriot. He’s not on the side of the MAGA movement and that needs to be recognized.
