Former Attorney General William Barr accused President Donald Trump on Thursday of a "betrayal of his office" — the latest rebuke of the president by a former high-ranking administration official after pro-Trump rioters stormed the U.S. Capitol.

"Orchestrating a mob to pressure Congress is inexcusable," Barr said in a statement obtained by POLITICO. "The President's conduct yesterday was a betrayal of his office and supporters."

Barr's criticism on Thursday was not his first public comment on the chaos at the Capitol. As the president's supporters breached the building on Wednesday afternoon, he released a statement through his spokesperson that did not refer to Trump by name.
