Donald Trump attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis released a statement on Tuesday after Attorney General William Barr said that the Justice Department found insufficient evidence to back the president’s claims that the election was rigged against him.
The lawyers’ remarks came after Barr told the Associated Press that the DOJ has “not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election.”
Giuliani and Ellis quickly responded in a statement.
“With all due respect to the Attorney General, there hasn’t been any semblance of a Department of Justice investigation,” the statement said. “We have gathered ample evidence of illegal voting in at least six states, which they have not examined.”
“Again, with the greatest respect to the Attorney General, his opinion appears to be without any knowledge or investigation of the substantial irregularities of systemic fraud,” the lawyers added.
