Attorney General William Barr spoke with the Associated Press on Tuesday where he admitted that the Justice Department has not uncovered any evidence that would support Donald Trump’s claim that there was mass voter fraud in this year’s election.
Trump has been pushing the idea that Joe Biden did not win the election fairly and would only let him step in the White House if he can prove that his 80,000,000 votes were cast legally.
“Biden can only enter the White House as President if he can prove that his ridiculous ‘80,000,000 votes’ were not fraudulently or illegally obtained,” Trump tweeted last week.
Trump has no such power to stop a president-elect from taking over as president.
To make matters worse for Trump, his own attorney general is contradicting his claims of voter fraud.
According to Barr, U.S. attorneys and FBI agents have been looking into specific complaints and information they’ve received, but have found no evidence that could lead to the election results being overturned.
“To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election,” Barr told the AP.
“The comments are especially direct coming from Barr, who has been one of the president’s most ardent allies,” The AP reports. “Before the election, he had repeatedly raised the notion that mail-in voter fraud could be especially vulnerable to fraud during the coronavirus pandemic as Americans feared going to polls and instead chose to vote by mail.”
