Former US attorney general William Barr has told ITV News that questioning the legitimacy of the presidential election result “precipitated the riots” in the US Capitol on January 6…

In an exclusive interview with ITV News, Mr Barr said he would not describe the violence by Trump supporters on January 6 as “inevitable” but continued: “I think that when you start suppressing free speech, when people lose confidence in the media, and also when they lose faith in the integrity of elections – you are going to have some people resort to violence.”
