"Detached from Reality": Barr Says Trump Embraced Lies & Conspiracy Theories After His Election Loss

One of the key witnesses who testified live at Monday's hearing of the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the U.S. Capitol was former Fox News political editor Chris Stirewalt, who led the the Fox News decision to become the first network to call Arizona for Joe Biden on election night in November 2020. Fox fired Stirewalt months later. Answering questions from Congressmember Zoe Lofgren, Stirewalt said Trump's chance of winning was virtually zero. His comments were supported by Trump's former Attorney General William Barr. The committee also heard testimony from Trump's former campaign manager Bill Stepien, who said he had contradicted false election victory claims by Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani, and was part of what he called "Team Normal." Former Attorney General Barr told the committee about how he became "demoralized" after the 2020 election when he tried to counter allegations of voting fraud with then-President Trump. #DemocracyNow
