Former U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr Blames Donald Trump for Capitol Hill Insurrection

It's been two weeks since rabid Donald Trump supporters stormed the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. hoping to overturn the 2020 presidential election after Trump lost to Joe Biden [click here if you missed that]. 

Now Donald Trump's former U.S. Attorney General, Bill Barr, blames Trump for the insurrection on Capitol Hill...

From The Daily Mail
Bill Barr has said that Donald Trump's allegations of election fraud and his claims that the Presidency was 'stolen' from him 'precipitated' the DC riots, in his first TV interview since resigning as Attorney General.
Barr was asked about Trump and his campaign's claims about the legitimacy of the election, and appeared to take a swipe at his former boss.
ITV News Global Security Editor Rohit Kachroo asked Barr: 'Perhaps the debate about the integrity of the election was the final straw?'
Barr replied: 'I think that was the thing that precipitated the riots on the Hill'

Bill Barr, who was appointed U.S. Attorney General by Donald Trump, has publicly shot down any claims of widespread election fraud.
