Why do you think Barr is going against Trump on this? Barr KNOWS it will almost certainly either prove there is zero proof and if there is, it will implicate Republicans. Trump is being led to believe that he was actually cheated. He isn’t just running his mouth for the sake of it, it truly believes his own lies. This is why so few Republican politicians will come out and acknowledge that Biden won, and why so many were quick to jump on the Texas AG lawsuit train. They know that Trump is absolutely seething, and they’re terrified that he’ll rat them all out in a fit of rage.
That’s because these companies making voting machines that Trump and his ilk have been saying were involved in massive voter fraud are looking to sue for defamation. And legal experts think they have a very strong case. Outlets like OAN and Newsmax don’t have the resources to survive a lawsuit like that. Dominion and SMARTMATIC could very well sue OAN and Newsmax out of existence. Reports are they have little interest in showing mercy either.
