On Tuesday, Attorney General William Barr stated that DOJ has found no proof of Donald Trump’s voter fraud claims related to the 2020 presidential election.
In his interview with The Associated Press, Barr said that US attorneys have assisted the FBI to investigate the claims, however, “to date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”
AG Barr’s statement was immediately criticized by Donald Trump’s lawyers, pointing out that the AG used to be among the most trusted allies of the US president who had previously brought up the concept of mail-in voting fraud.
On Tuesday, Barr had a meeting at the White House lasting approximately three hours.
“Most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct. ... And those have been run down," according to Barr.
Several officials who contested the voter-fraud claims of the US President have already been dismissed from their positions, and according to the Democratic leader Chuck Schumer. Barr will be “the next one to be fired.”
Meanwhile, Donald Trump continues to dispute the election’s integrity, despite some members his administration, including former CISA Director Christopher Krebs, stating that it was the most secure election ever.
