Barr Says DOJ Has No Proof of Systemic Election Fraud

Lawyer Common William Barr says the Justice Division has not uncovered proof of widespread voter fraud that will change the end result of the 2020 presidential election, reports the Associated Press. His feedback come regardless of President Donald Trump’s baseless claims that the election was stolen, Trump’s effort to subvert the outcomes of the 2020 presidential election and his refusal to concede his loss to President-Elect Joe Biden. Barr mentioned U.S. Attorneys and FBI brokers have been working to comply with up particular complaints, however they’ve uncovered no proof that will change the end result of the election. The feedback are important coming from Barr, who has been one of many president’s most ardent allies. Earlier than the election, he had repeatedly raised the notion that mail-in voter fraud could possibly be particularly weak to fraud in the course of the coronavirus pandemic. Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani and his marketing campaign issued a scathing assertion claiming that, “with all due respect to the Lawyer Common, there hasn’t been any semblance” of an investigation.

Final month, Barr allowed the nation’s U.S. Attorneys to pursue any “substantial allegations” of voting irregularities, in the event that they existed, earlier than the 2020 presidential election was licensed, regardless of no proof at the moment of widespread fraud. That memo gave prosecutors the flexibility to disregard longstanding Justice Division coverage that usually would prohibit such actions earlier than the election was licensed. Quickly after it was issued, the division’s prime elections crime official stepped except for that place due to the memo. Former Trump lawyer Sidney Powell has spun tales of election programs flipping votes, German servers storing U.S. voting data and election software program created in Venezuela. Barr mentioned, “There’s been one assertion that will be systemic fraud and that will be the declare that machines have been programmed primarily to skew the election outcomes … we haven’t seen something to substantiate that.”
