“This week, the New York Times provided further confirmation that the U.S. media, the Intelligence Community, and Joe Biden himself lied when they denied the authenticity of Hunter Biden’s laptop and called it probable ‘Russian disinformation.’” – Kyle Becker
Jesse Watters: Did you just hear the conversation about the laptop from hell?
Bill Barr: Yes, I did.
Jesse Watters: When this was all going down in the fall, did you see what the left was doing with this disinformation campaign? Did you come out and say anything about that?
Bill Barr: Absolutely. As soon as this letter came out from the so-called intelligence specialists, the DNI, John Radcliffe at the time, and the FBI, which worked for me, both came out and said this was not the result of disinformation, Russian disinformation. The media ignored that completely just kept on going with the disinformation line.
Jesse Watters: I mean, that’s pretty egregious. I mean, would you say that there was a conspiracy between Big Tech, former intelligence officials, the media, the Democrats to, I don’t know, let’s just use the word rig an election.
Bill Barr: Definitely, that, yes, that definitely made an impact on the election.
Jesse Watters: Okay,
Bill Barr: Suppressing that news. And it’s not a question of whether it was criminal or not.
Jesse Watters: Right.
Bill Barr: Just the facts alone were shameful. And most Americans would immediately see what was going on and how repulsive it was and it would have had an effect. The issue of criminality is a different issue,
Jesse Watters: We’ll get to that at some point.
