During a softball interview with Fox News William Barr appears to directly contradict what Donald Trump had said earlier over the reason for him descending into the White House bunker.
“This is especially true for the upcoming elections in November. We live in a very divided country right now and I think that it is critical that we have an election where the American people are allowed to make a decision a choice between President Trump and Vice President Biden based on a robust debate of policy issues. We cannot allow this process to be highjacked by efforts to drum up criminal investigation of either candidate. And Im committed that this election will be conducted without this kind of interference.”
“When history looks back on this decision, how do you think it will be written?” Barr: “Well, history is written by the winners [smug laughter] so it largely depends on who's writing the history.”
