O’Donnell pointed out: Bill BerleThe former Trump attorney general gave a rather lukewarm response when asked if he thought it was possible.
“I’m skeptical about that. I don’t think Rudy Giuliani would do that. I hope he doesn’t, but I don’t know,” Barr told Fox News.
O’Donnell was stunned.
“Don’t you know?” he said. “William Burr knows Rudolph Giuliani well. Mr. William Burr knows Donald Trump well. And the two worked together to sell a $2 million pardon and split the money. When asked if he could have done so, William Barr replied, “I don’t know.”
