As we previously reported, former Attorney General Bill Barr told ABC’s Jonathan Karl that he believed that claims about election fraud were “bulls**t” in an article in The Atlantic.

But as I wrote earlier today, there was a small problem with that, as President Donald Trump’s attorney Jenna Ellis pointed out. The problem even came out in The Atlantic article itself.

Trump also asked if Barr felt that way, then why did he say that he was “greatly honored” and “proud to have played a role in the many successes and unprecedented achievements you have delivered for the American people” by serving in Trump’s administration?
