'A POLITICAL HIT JOB': Former AG Bill Barr Blasts Letitia James for 'Gross Overreach'

posted by Hannity Staff - 9.21.22

Former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr stopped by Fox News’ America Reports to share initial reactions to New York AG Letitia James’ lawsuit against former President Donald Trump; Barr says it’s a “political hit job.”

“It’s hard for me not to conclude that this is a political hit job,” Barr said. “I’m not even sure that she has a good case against Trump himself, but what ultimately persuades me that this is a political hit job is that she grossly overreaches when she tries to drag the children into this.”

While Barr concedes that Trump’s children play a role in his business, “this is his personal financial statement, prepared by the CFO, accounting firms were involved in it…The children aren’t going to know the details of that, nor are they expected in the real world to do their own due diligence and have it reviewed independently.”

Watch the clip below:

Trump’s children are already sounding off, including Donald Trump Jr. who calls James a “Dem activist.”

“Letitia James doesn’t care about the law. She’s a Dem activist, who only cares about politics. Here’s the most recent poll in her reelection race. So she’s now desperately trying to fire up her leftwing base with this BS. This is ALL politics, nothing more. Disgraceful!!!”
