OPINION: This article may contain commentary which reflects the author's opinion.


Former Attorney General Bill Barr declared that he would vote for “the Republican ticket” in November’s presidential election, adding that a second term in office for President Joe Biden would be “national suicide.”

In an interview with Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom,” Barr said he believes Biden and his policies represent a greater threat to the United States.

“Well, I’ve said all along, you know, given two bad choices, I think it’s my duty to pick the person I think would do the least harm to the country and in my mind that’s — I will vote the Republican ticket,” Barr said. “I will support the Republican ticket.”

Barr warned that Biden is pursuing an extremely dangerous agenda, which he described as “the real danger to the country, the real danger to democracy.”

“Trump may be playing Russian roulette but a continuation of the Biden administration is national suicide, in my opinion,” he added.

“The choice now is a binary choice between these two candidates, and of the two, I support President Trump. And one of the reasons is because I think many of our critical problems, including deregulation, crime, restoring law and order, restoring control over our borders, rebuilding our defense in this increasingly dangerous world, standing by our allies, I trust President Trump to do that much more so than President Biden, I think. And I also worry very much that in the batting circle with Joe Biden is Vice President Kamala Harris. I feel that under these circumstances, the Republicans have to win in November,” Barr declared.

WATCH:

Trump was convicted last week on charges that legal experts from both the right and the left have deemed to be 34 contrived felonies related to a pre-election hush money payment made to a porn star before his 2016 victory.

And instantly, his campaign’s fundraising skyrocketed.

The Trump campaign has reportedly raised over $200 million in donations, a financial surge that includes nearly $53 million raised in the immediate aftermath of the verdict.

The total dollar amount includes contributions pledged by Republican megadonor Miriam Adelson, who intends to invest tens of millions of dollars in a pro-Trump SuperPAC after evaluating other candidates during the primary. In 2020, the late Sheldon Adelson, a casino billionaire, and his wife were the top donors to the Preserve America PAC, contributing over $90 million to support Trump’s campaign.

According to a report from Politico, Adelson plans to contribute upwards of $100 million to Trump’s campaign once again. Adelson, the principal shareholder of Las Vegas Sands and a majority stakeholder in the Dallas Mavericks alongside her son-in-law, has an estimated net worth of $33.3 billion, according to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index.

After his conviction, the Trump campaign raised over $50 million in just a few hours. This amount exceeded President Biden’s total fundraising for the entire month of May.

Meanwhile, top-rated SiriusXM podcaster Megyn Kelly criticized Democratic prosecutors, politicians, and voters who supported the prosecution and conviction of Trump.

She also said GOP district attorneys and prosecutors should now do the same to top Democratic figures.

“This whole scheme, and here it is the proper word, is corrupt. It’s a before and after moment for America. What just happened today is a line we can’t uncross, and these Democrats will rue the day they decided to use lawfare to stop a presidential candidate,” she said (see video below).

“I’m not talking about violence; I’m talking about tit for tat. You just wait, and it won’t be Hunter Biden next time; it’s going to be Joe Biden. It could potentially still be Barack Obama. It could still potentially be Hillary Clinton. We’re going to have to look at what the statutes of limitations are on the various crimes they surely committed,” Kelly predicted.

“We’re going to have to look at passing laws to revive those dead crimes, felonies, or misdemeanors so that those cases can be brought out of time. That’s what may be in the interest of justice, just like they did for E.J. Carroll with the New York State law that was passed so that she could sue him. That’s what happened,” she said. “Turnabout is fair play. And John Yoo, an amazing lawyer who worked in the Bush administration Department of Justice, has a great piece out today talking about how that’s the only way they’ll learn.”
