Attorney General Barr resoundingly rejected the New York Times' account of a private conversation between himself and John Bolton in a scathing statement released late Monday evening, saying it “grossly mischaracterizes” what was discussed.
“While the Department of Justice has not reviewed Mr. Bolton's manuscript, the New York Times' account of this conversation grossly mischaracterizes what Attorney General Barr and Mr. Bolton discussed. There was no discussion of ‘personal favors’ or ‘undue influence’ on investigations, nor did Attorney General Barr state the the President's conversations with foreign leaders was improper. If this is truly what Mr. Bolton has written, then it seems he is attributing to Attorney General Barr his own current views - views with which Attorney General Barr does not agree.”
