Excellent article in The Atlantic on how Moscow Mitch persuaded Attorney General William Bar to come forth and state that the U.S. Justice Department found that there was no evidence of voter fraud in the 2020 election:

Which of course completely enraged the Orange Dotard.

Some choice excerpts (emphases added are from me):

“Look, we need the president in Georgia,” McConnell told Barr, “and so we cannot be frontally attacking him right now. But you’re in a better position to inject some reality into this situation. You are really the only one who can do it.”

“My attitude was: It was put-up or shut-up time,” Barr told me. “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 bullsh!t.”

We realized from the beginning it was just bullsh!t,” Barr told me, noting that even if the machines somehow changed the count, it would show up when they were recounted by hand. “It’s a counting machine, and they save everything that was counted. So you just reconcile the two. There had been no discrepancy reported anywhere, and I’m still not aware of any discrepancy.”

Yet untold millions of Trump-loving morons continue to believe that pathological liar. Simply amazing.

Thank you. This is a very interesting read. I thought the words "Clown Show" said a lot in that it certainly caused many elected officials to deny their "Oath of Office." AG Barr is also mentioned in the book, "The Hunting of the President- The Ten-Year Campaign to Destroy Bill & Hillary Clinton". He and so many other names that surfaced again. Maybe all of this will have been enough?

Balderdash! Barr is shadier than an entire bosque cottonwood forest. Nobody should buy in to his attempted reputation-repair apology tour. Like Barr, the entire GOP has become the party of black mold. Like black mold, You can't simply spray it with Clorox and clean it up. No, the entire building must be burned to the ground.
