US Attorney General Bill Barr Says No Evidence Of Decisive Election Fraud: Report


Bill Barr created the comments as Trump’s campaign persists in attempting to prove there was fraud in crucial states

Washington:

US Attorney General Bill Barr mentioned Tuesday that the Justice Department has discovered no proof of voter fraud substantial sufficient to reverse Democrat Joe Biden’s defeat of President Donald Trump in the November 3 election.



“To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election,” Barr told the Associated Press in an interview.



Barr created the comments as Trump’s campaign persists in attempting to prove there was fraud in crucial states Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and elsewhere, hoping to protect against Biden’s win from getting created official in the Electoral College on December 14.

“With all due respect to the Attorney General, there hasn’t been any semblance of a Department of Justice investigation,” Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis mentioned in a statement reacting to Barr’s announcement.

“We will continue our pursuit of the truth through the judicial system and state legislatures,” they mentioned.

Attorneys for Trump have claimed every little thing from ballot-box stuffing and fake ballot printing, to thousands of dead individuals obtaining voted, to vote-counting machines getting programmed to favor Biden.

In quite a few legal filings — all rejected by the courts — the Trump campaign has sought to invalidate millions of votes for Biden primarily based on claims that lacked any proof.

Barr did not address certain claims.

However, he told the news agency, “There’s been one assertion that would be systemic fraud and that would be the claim that machines were programmed essentially to skew the election results.”

“And the DHS and DOJ have looked into that, and so far, we haven’t seen anything to substantiate that,” he mentioned, referring to the departments of Homeland Security and Justice.

Barr, lengthy noticed as a political loyalist to the president, mentioned the only potentially justifiable claims of fraud “are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”

“They are not systemic allegations,” he mentioned.

“Some have been broad and potentially cover a few thousand votes. They have been followed up on.”

Barr’s comments have been reported about the exact same time he arrived Tuesday at the White House for unspecified meetings.

Around the time of the election, media reports mentioned Trump was unhappy with the Justice Department Chief for not generating efforts to assistance his reelection, and that Barr could be fired.
