Bill Barr, the US Attorney General on Tuesday, disclosed that there has been no significant evidence of voter fraud found by the Justice Department that is enough to alter Democrat Joe Biden’s defeat of President Donald Trump in the November 3 election.
Barr in an interview with Associated Press said, “To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election”.
His comments came even as Trump’s campaign continues to insist and to prove there was fraud in key states Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and elsewhere, all in a bid to prevent Biden’s win from being made official in the Electoral College on December 14.
In a quick reaction to Barr’s statement, Trump’s lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Elis said, “With all due respect to the Attorney General, there hasn’t been any semblance of a Department of Justice investigation,”
“We will continue our pursuit of the truth through the judicial system and state legislatures,” they said.
Fake ballot printing, ballot-box stuffing, thousands of dead people having voted and vote-counting machines being programmed to favour Biden are most of the claims by Trump’s Attorneys.
In several legal filings — all rejected by the courts — the Trump campaign has sought to invalidate millions of votes for Biden based on claims that lacked any evidence.
Barr didn’t address specific 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 said, referring to the departments of Homeland Security and Justice.
Barr, long seen as a political loyalist to the president, said 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 said.
“Some have been broad and potentially cover a few thousand votes. They have been followed up on.”
Barr’s comments were reported about the same time he arrived Tuesday at the White House for unspecified meetings.
Around the time of the election, media reports said Trump was unhappy with the Justice Department Chief for not making efforts to support his reelection, and that Barr could be fired.
