Donald Trump’s indictment for the events of January 6 took a turn for the worse as former Attorney General Bill Barr has expressed his willingness to provide testimony against the former president. Barr, originally appointed by Trump, acknowledged on CBS’s “Face the Nation” that he would be open to appearing as a witness in the trial concerning federal charges linked to alleged attempts to overturn the 2020 election. However, Barr refrained from confirming whether he was interviewed by the special counsel in relation to the federal investigation.

Barr’s relationship with the former president has soured since his resignation shortly after the 2020 election, and he has criticized Trump extensively. He deemed the case brought forth by special counsel Jack Smith to be intricate, yet he asserted that he doesn’t believe it infringes upon First Amendment rights.

When asked about his interactions with Trump and how he communicated the absence of election fraud evidence, Barr recounted that his thorough investigations into the matter led him to “satisfying” conclusions.

“Well, I go through that in my book in painstaking detail, but on three occasions at least, I told him in no uncertain terms, that there was no evidence of fraud that would have changed the outcome,” he asserted.

Addressing the recent indictment of Trump for his efforts to maintain power post his 2020 election loss to President Biden, the Justice Department’s 45-page indictment alleges Trump engaged in a campaign marked by “dishonesty, fraud, and conceit” to impede a fundamental aspect of democracy. Trump entered a not guilty plea to the charges.

In a separate but related context, Florida Governor DeSantis has distanced himself from Trump’s claims regarding the 2020 election outcome, firmly stating, “of course, he lost.”

During an upcoming NBC Nightly News interview, DeSantis, responding to NBC News correspondent Dasha Burns, was asked about his stance on Trump’s victory claims. DeSantis replied that the true winner of the presidential election is the one who takes the oath of office every four years on January 20th.

Pressed for a direct answer, DeSantis firmly responded, “No, unquestionably he lost; Joe Biden is the president.”

This interview aligns with DeSantis’s earlier statement at an Iowa campaign event where he asserted that the allegations of election fraud in 2020 did not hold up.

The declarations of both Barr and DeSantis reflect a multi-faceted stance on Trump’s actions and claims following the 2020 election. While Barr offers his willingness to testify against Trump, DeSantis takes a clear stance against Trump’s assertions of victory, calling it a complete lie.
