Barr said: “What’s with the letter? Why didn’t you pick up the phone and call me?” Well, if it’s a phone call, the conversation is a he said/(s)he said situation where there is no way to conclusively prove what was actually said; it’s all based on memory. A letter offers no similar possibility of a long-term deception about its contents, once it is published. Barr lied about the Mueller report — and that worked until it was released.
Yes — MAGAts continue to recite Barr’s original lies but others now have conclusive proof of Barr’s and Trump’s dishonesty.
