Fox News has now reportedly come under fire from former President Trump for airing an interview with William Barr, who served under Trump as attorney general, just hours before Barr is scheduled to be arraigned on criminal charges in connection with an alleged hush-money payment to an adult film star in the state of New York.
Trump lashed out at Fox News for daring to air the interview with Barr.
“Why does Fox keep putting on Bill Barr. As attorney general he was a complete coward who was absolutely petrified of being impeached, which the democrats threatened to do until he became their virtual “slave” and refused to investigate and prosecute the massive election fraud that took place in the 2020 presidential election, by far the radical left’s greatest concern.”
Barr has been a regular commentator on legal issues and news events related to Trump and politics in general on the airways of Fox News, where he gives his opinion on a variety of topics.
Barr stated that President Trump should not testify in the criminal case against him in New York because he lacks the ability to exercise self-control during an appearance he made on Fox News Sunday over the weekend.
In recent weeks, Trump has been quite critical of Fox News for its generally positive coverage of Ron DeSantis, the Republican governor of Florida, who is generally expected to challenge Trump for the nomination for the GOP presidential candidate in the year 2024.
