In an extraordinary statement, former Attorney General Bill Barr has completely thrown President Donald Trump under the bus, accusing him of “orchestrating” the storming of the U.S. Capitol and calling his alleged actions “inexcusable.”

“Orchestrating a mob to pressure Congress is inexcusable. The president’s conduct yesterday was a betrayal of his office and supporters,” he reportedly said in a statement to the Associated Press on Thursday.

The statement was stunning because Barr had been considered an extremely loyal Trump administration official who’d stuck his neck out to push forward with the president’s agenda — justifiably and legally so, to be clear.

He justifiably refused to move forward with dubious “obstruction of justice” charges against the president following the publication of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

He justifiably designated U.S. Attorney John Durham special counsel so he may continue investigating the sketchy predicates of the Russia probe even once President-elect Joe Biden takes office.

And when he resigned last month, he did so with glowing praise for the president, whom he congratulated for his “many successes and unprecedented achievements.”

Yet here he is now:

Why the sudden change of heart?

One theory is that he genuinely believes the president screwed up by encouraging and speaking at the “Stop the Steal” rally in D.C.

While there was nothing inherently wrong with the rally, it eventually dissolved into a riot as the president’s supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol and commandeered the House and Senate chambers. Barr is clearly among the myriads of Trump critics who believe the president bears responsibility for this.

Another theory, according to the president’s most ardent supporters, is that Barr was never loyal in the first place — that it’d all been an act. Either that or he’s just an “idiot” and “asshole.”

Look (*Language warning):

You get the picture.

Barr isn’t the only one who’s “capitulated,” as the president’s supporters have put it.

So has former House Speaker Newt Gingrich:

So has Sen. Lindsey Graham, who was once once one of the president’s most enthusiastic congressional supporters but has since said he’s “out.”

And so has Vice President Mike Pence, according to the president’s supporters. They say that by affirming President-elect Joe Biden’s victory, he’s stabbed the president in the back and proven himself to be a “traitor” who supposedly “sold out.”

Look:

The only one who hasn’t sold out and remains utterly infallible to the president’s most ardent supporters is of course the president himself.
