ASSOCIATED PRESS: Disputing President Donald Trump’s persistent, baseless claims, Attorney General William Barr declared Tuesday the U.S. Justice Department has uncovered no evidence of widespread voter fraud that could change the outcome of the 2020 election.
Barr’s comments, in an interview with the The Associated Press, contradict the concerted effort by Trump, his boss, to subvert the results of last month’s voting and block President-elect Joe Biden from taking his place in the White House…
There’s a growing tendency to use the criminal justice system as sort of a default fix-all, he said, but first there must be a basis to believe there is a crime to investigate.
Most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct. … And those have been run down; they are being run down, Barr said. Some have been broad and potentially cover a few thousand votes. They have been followed up on.
