Former Attorney General William Barr said on Sunday that former President Donald Trump is the Republican candidate who is “most likely” to fall short against Vice President Biden in a potential 2024 contest.

The Hill, citing the latest interview from ABC’s “This Week, mentioned that Barr talked about the accusations against Trump in a New York City hush-money case. 

William Barr claimed that Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s (D) lack of transparency regarding the case indicates that it is most likely weak.

The former attorney general echoed criticisms made by Trump supporters and even some detractors when he termed the case “unjustified” and “an abuse of prosecutorial power.”

William Barr Says Trump Will Lose 2024 Elections

Former Trump attorney general William Barr stated that he thinks the former president’s legal issues would likely help him during the Republican primary elections but “greatly weaken” him during the 2024 general election, which Barr claimed the former president cannot win.

“He’s already, I think, a weak candidate that would lose, but I think this sort of assures it,” Barr, who has previously said in an NPR report that he won’t support Trump’s reelection, told ABC News “This Week” on Sunday.

Barr said that it is not due of Trump’s arrest last week in New York on suspicion of receiving hush money during his 2016 presidential campaign.

Instead, William Barr said it’s a separate federal investigation examining Trump’s behavior in connection with the violence that occurred at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021, and more than 300 allegedly sensitive papers that were discovered at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida. Barr added the results of the first two probes will ultimately make Trump an unpopular candidate with most voters.

Supporters May Reunite in Favor of Trump

The Washington Post reported last week that the Department of Justice and the FBI had acquired fresh information that suggests probable obstruction by Trump, citing people with knowledge of the situation.

William Barr nonetheless believes that any criminal accusations brought against Trump will spur his fans to unite in favor of him ahead of the primaries early the next year. But he believed such support wouldn’t carry over to the general election.

If Trump is found guilty of any crimes, Barr said he doesn’t think he will be sentenced before the 2024 presidential election.

Dec. 4 has been set aside for Trump’s subsequent in-person hearing on the hush-money allegations. That places the start of the 2024 Republican presidential primary calendar about two months away.
