Attorney General William Barr will use the Department of Justice to “try to interfere” in the 2020 presidential election to re-elect Donald Trump, MSNBC’s national affairs analyst predicted on Tuesday.

John Heilemann was interviewed by Lawrence O’Donnell on MSNBC’s “The Last Word.”

“He made a travesty of the Mueller report and continues to lie on Donald Trump’s behalf at every opportunity,” he added.

“I would bet every dollar of my bank account we’re going to see that whenever this report comes out,” Heilemann added.

“Everything he’s saying here is simply a lie — everybody knows he’s a liar,” said Biden, repeatedly reminding the audience that Trump has attacked the ACA and tried to destroy it.
