US Attorney-General, Barr States Justice Department’s Position On Election Fraud



US Attorney-General, Bill Barr, on Tuesday, noted that the Justice Department has not found any evidence of fraud in the November 3 presidential election.

Barr stated this while reacting to Donald Trump‘s campaign team’s claim that there was fraud in key states Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania and elsewhere.

The presidential candidate of the Republican Party is working effortlessly to prevent Biden’s victory from being made official in the Electoral College on December 14.

“To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election,” Barr said.

Trump’s lawyers have claimed everything from ballot-box stuffing and fake ballot printing, to thousands of dead people having voted, to vote-counting machines being programmed to favor Biden.

However, Barr said: “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.”
