Barr worried Trump was ‘detached from reality’ in aftermath of 2020 election

Former attorney general Bill Barr said he worried in the aftermath of the 2020 election that then-President Trump had become “detached from reality” as Trump made repeated claims about voting fraud.


Barr told the House committee investigating the Jan. 6 Capitol riots in recorded testimony that Trump was making increasingly outlandish claims about rigged voting machines and fraudulent vote dumps that Trump claimed were swinging the 2020 election against him.
