President Trump is continuing his legal fight to overturn the results of the 2020 election this week with a massive new lawsuit in Wisconsin and a brutal Twitter smackdown of the Governor of Georgia, all while Rudy Giuliani and his crew crisscross the country looking for evidence of widespread voter fraud.
This fight has been ongoing for nearly a month now, and bitterly. Some of the President’s former allies have even begun to distance themselves from him in this battle, with Attorney General Bill Barr now the latest to split with the Commander in Chief.
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 come despite President Donald Trump’s repeated claims that the election was stolen, and his refusal to concede his loss to President-Elect Joe Biden.
In an interview with The Associated Press, 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.
“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 statement is sure to garner a harsh rebuke from the President, who has had no qualms with throwing his former confidantes under the bus now that the going has gotten tough.
