Barr tells federal prosecutors to look into unsupported allegations of voting irregularities

Barr tells federal prosecutors to look into unsupported allegations of voting irregularities 1


Attorney General William Barr reminded federal prosecutors Monday that they should examine allegations of voting irregularities before states move to certify results in the coming weeks. But the nation's top federal law enforcement official didn't provide any indication that the Justice Department has come up with evidence to support President Donald Trump's claim of massive fraud in last week's election.
In his memo, Barr notes that while "most allegations of purported election misconduct are of such a scale that they would not impact the outcome of an election and, thus, investigation can appropriately be deferred, that is not always the case."
"Furthermore, any concerns that overt actions taken by the Department could inadvertently impact an election are greatly minimized, if they exist at all, once voting has concluded, even if election certification has not yet been completed," he wrote.
Barr's letter to criminal prosecutors broke a days-long silence that has been awkward as Trump and his campaign lawyers have held news conferences and filed lawsuits that have been devoid of any evidence of widespread fraud. Trump claims voting irregularities explain why he is behind in states he would need to win reelection and has refused to concede defeat to President-elect Joe Biden.
A Justice official says no one asked or directed Barr to issue his memo.

    I guess since he saw Esper get fired, he felt he needed to do something

  6. The only thing worse than LOSING is being a SORE loser 😂

    • Mo A, that’s right. Dumb-o-crats have been SORE losers for the past 4 years, rioting in every major american city, just because Trump won 4 years ago. Well guess what schoolboy, Trump is going to win again this time in 2020, and Dumb-o-crats are going to “lose it” for another 4 years. Trump will “Make Liberals Cry Again” LOL! TRUMP 2020!! DON JR 2024!!! ERIC 2028!!!!

    • @joe doe 😥😥😥

    • @john smith Agree – he couldn’t believe that he lost the popular vote. Something had to be wrong. 😊 So he made up a story about how his inauguration crowd was the biggest ever – it wasn’t. Ad nauseum.

    • @L P from???

    Barr should be disbarred.

  8. “Nothing There”. He’s just trying to appease his sour loser cry baby boss 45.

  9. Let them carry on digging their own hole. The longer they continue with this, the more clearly American voters will see that the Republicans are utterly corrupt.

  10. When is the last time a Democratic DOJ launched an investigation into voting fraud with no evidence?

    • STOP THE STEAL!!!!! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 – THE AMERICAN people (more specifically the legal ones).😎

    • When was the last a Democrat Politician did anything for the country? Just check net worths.

    • @Terry Grass yes if there’s been an allegation, that’s exactly what happens. Hey relax, Joe was the most popular candidate in history plus there’s no evidence, so nothing to fear, right? 😉

    • @Qwad Luzr not really …. evidence it collected , dna, witness statement, murder weapon, video tape… etc police collect it … give it to DA to review for charges…. charges laid in court …. then fair trial before impartial jurist.

    • @Josh Evans seriously.. I mean wtf? These folks.. Im weak

  11. We need accountability for all of what went down over the last four years! Period!

    And right now, we need protests in the street against this corruption!

    • I have to say that I have at times railed against Trump appointing ‘The Man From Raytheon’ – Mark Esper – to the top of Defense, but I must commend Esper on not doing Trump’s anti-constitutional bidding to have active American troops on the streets of American cities – especially when it was to be against protests caused by police brutality. So well done that man.

  12. AG Roseanne just having his last hurrah before scurrying back under his rock.. what happened to the earthquake Durham report? Wasn’t that going to put people in jail?

    I don’t like AG’s that has no shame swimming in the swamp!!

  14. Bill Barr looks like the Churchill dog. This is so embarrassing now, they are so desperate to keep the cult alive.

  15. Can’t wait until Barr is gone. Worst AG ever in the history of the United States 🇺🇸

  16. “Widespread fraud” is Trumpspeak for there is “no credible evidence.”

    Hello everyone, The so called AG Will Be Fired too on jan 20th.

  18. Remember in the Flintstones when the sabre tooth cat threw Fred out of the house at the end of every episode?
    We need that cat

  19. The slimiest, most corrupt AG talking about “credible” allegations?

  20. The only “irregularities” are from the USPS attempting to sabotage the entire election – headed by Louis DeJoy and directed by Trump himself.
