“He [Bill Barr] Was Really Working Against This Administration In A Lot Of Ways”
President Trump’s Director of Trade and Manufacturing Policy, Peter Navarro, spoke out today on Sunday Morning Futures about former Attorney General William Barr.
Bill Barr was fast-tracking Biden’s Executive Orders while he was slow-walking President Trump’s, according to Peter Navaro.
From Maria Bartiromo’s Sunday Morning Features:
MARIA BARTIROMO (ANCHOR): Before an executive order reaches the president’s desk, it must first be vetted. It’s vetted by the Department of Justice, which begs the question — how were 17 of these executive orders ready to go, and waiting for President Biden to sign minutes after inauguration, on day one?
PETER NAVARRO (FORMER WHITE HOUSE TRADE ADVISER): Sure, Maria. In my term, 4 years at the White House, I probably drafted over 50 of these orders. What you have to do is make sure you have the statutory authority to do what you’re going to do, right. And the last checkbox that needs to be done is at the Department of Justice, for what’s called form and legality.
Navaro shared that the last checkmark that had to be done to complete the Executive Order (EO) process was to run the order by the Department of Justice (DOJ):
Here’s the news behind the news. Bill Barr, President Trump’s Attorney General, also it turns out, happens to be Joe Biden’s first Attorney General because here was what was happening. We had over 30 executive orders queued after Election Day, ready to go but we kept running into these roadblocks, roadblocks, and hurdles. It turned out that Bill Barr’s office of legal counsel was fast-tracking all of these Biden EO’s and basically it was a Deep State coup. Now this has implications Maria.
Navarro went on to explain how the DOJ helped approve a Biden EO where he allowed the Chinese access to the US power grid which would have horrible consequences if the US gets into a predicament with China.
Biden’s order will allow China to take down the US grid and Barr’s DOJ approved it. At the same time, Navarro was unable to get through an order on offshoring which never went through the DOJ.
“Yeah, we got slow-walked at the Department of Justice. The problem I told Barr about numerous times and he should have been fired months before he was. By the last year of this Administration, he was really working against this Administration in a lot of ways,” he said.
