Did AG Barr even read the witness affidavits…?

WASHINGTON (AP) — Attor­ney Gen­er­al William Barr said Tues­day the Jus­tice Depart­ment has not uncov­ered evi­dence of wide­spread vot­er fraud that would change the out­come of the 2020 pres­i­den­tial election.

His com­ments in an inter­view with The Asso­ci­at­ed Press come despite Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump’s repeat­ed base­less claims that the elec­tion was stolen, Trump’s effort to sub­vert the results of the 2020 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion and his refusal to con­cede his loss to Pres­i­dent-Elect Joe Biden.

Barr said U.S. attor­neys and FBI agents have been work­ing to fol­low up spe­cif­ic com­plaints and infor­ma­tion they’ve received, but they’ve uncov­ered no evi­dence that would change the out­come of the elec­tion. Barr was head­ed to the White House lat­er for a pre­vi­ous­ly sched­uled meeting.

“To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effect­ed 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. 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.
