AG Bill Barr Just Publicly Contradicted Trump’s Claim He Was ‘Inspecting’ White House Bunker




Attorney General William Barr appeared to contradict President Donald Trump’s claim on Wednesday that he was just merely visiting an underground bunker at the White House last week to inspect it, not because of security concerns over heated protests outside the executive mansion’s gates late last month.

Trump dismissed as “false” reports that the Secret Service had “rushed” him into the bunker on May 29 as protests ignited by the death of George Floyd escalated across the street.



“I went down during the day, and I was there for a tiny little short period of time,” he said during an interview with radio host Brian Kilmeade.

“It was much more for an inspection. There was no problem during the day,” Trump claimed.

But in a new interview with Fox News on Monday, Barr appeared to confirm multiple reports that Trump was rushed into the bunker by the Secret Service for his own safety.

“Things were so bad, the Secret Service recommended the president go down to the bunker,” said Barr. “We can’t have that in our country.”



Barr also denied playing any role in ordering law enforcement officials to disperse protesters with tear gas and rubber bullets, even though photographs show he was on the scene minutes before the action was taken and even though the White House press secretary said he ordered the perimeter pushed back.
