Former Attorney General – turned Trump enemy – said this lawsuit against President Donald Trump is just a “political hit job”

Donald Trump has made a lot of enemies because of his honesty and straight talk.

He even gets attacked by many of his former allies.

But this former Attorney General – turned Trump enemy – said this lawsuit against President Donald Trump is just a “political hit job.”

If there is one complaint about Donald Trump from conservative activists, it is that he doesn’t always choose the best people to serve him.

His administration was rife with neoconservatives like John Bolton, and others who turned on President Trump due to their lack of morals, ethics, and character.

Unfortunately, Trump doesn’t always see this until it’s too late.

Take Trump’s former Attorney General Bill Barr.

From Trump antagonist to Trump defender

Barr was Trump’s pick to serve as Attorney General and things started off decently. 

But the two soon started butting heads and Barr tried to step out and show his independence from the President.

Most of Trump’s supporters, and the former President himself saw Barr’s actions as a betrayal.

And after Biden became President, Barr’s attacks on Trump continued.

Until recently.

The former Attorney General said on Fox News’ America Reports that New York State Attorney General Letitia James’s lawsuit against former President Trump and his adult children was just a “political hit job.”

Barr argued, “It’s hard for me not to conclude it’s a political hit job. This is a woman who campaigned for office promising she was going to go after Trump, which I think is a tremendous abuse of office to go headhunting and targeting individuals. So I think she was targeting Trump.”

That’s right, Barr is back to defending Trump.

Lawsuit is a gross overreach

Barr continued to explain that he thinks the lawsuit is a bad one even against Trump alone. 

But by drawing Trump’s children into it the New York Attorney General is showing her hand, and it’s full of political cards.

“This is after three years a civil lawsuit, the gist of which is when the Trump organization borrowed money, Trump personally guaranteed those loans, and to support that, she’s claiming that he inflated his assets on his financial statements. I’m not even sure she has a good case against Trump himself, but what ultimately persuades me that this is a political hit job is she grossly overreaches when she tries to drag the children into this.”

Barr went on, “Yes, they had roles in the business, but this was his personal financial statement. It was prepared by the CFO, accounting firms were involved in it. The children aren’t going to know the details of that, nor are they expected in the real world to do their own due diligence and have it reviewed independently.”

Trump Derangement Syndrome strikes again

The fact that Barr, no Trump loyalist by any means, is willing to take such a hardline against the lawsuit proves it is nothing more than a political attack from an out-of-control leftist Attorney General.

If there was any merit to the case at all, you could expect Barr to at the very least remain quiet, if not come out in support of the suit.

Instead, Trump’s one-time ally took Letitia James to task for her blatant political hit job on, not just Trump, but his family too.

Barr concluded, “This to me looks like gross overreach, which I think is going to end up backfiring on them. I think it will make people sympathetic for Trump. This is another example of people piling on because of Trump derangement syndrome, you know, this strong entire to punish him.”

Maybe Barr has gotten over his Trump Derangement Syndrome for now, and is at least willing to call out the most heinous attacks on the former President.
