Excerpts from the article entitled “William Barr: no evidence of voter fraud that would change election outcome” by Amanda Holpuch of The Guardian should carry weight with the sycophants who continue to belabor the voter fraud accusations made by the outgoing president. It won’t be enough, but it is a large voice.
“William Barr said on Tuesday the US Department of Justice has not uncovered evidence of widespread voter fraud that would change the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.
The attorney general’s comments come despite Donald Trump’s repeated claims that the election was stolen, and his refusal to concede to President-elect Joe Biden.
Trump did not immediately comment. But campaign lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis said in a statement: “With the greatest respect to the Attorney General, his opinion appears to be without any knowledge or investigation of the substantial irregularities and evidence of systemic fraud.”
Barr made his comments in an interview with the Associated Press. US attorneys and FBI agents have been working to follow up complaints and information, he said, but have uncovered no evidence that would change the outcome of the election….
‘Most claims of fraud are very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct. They are not systemic allegations and those have been run down; they are being run down,’ Barr said. ‘Some have been broad and potentially cover a few thousand votes. They have been followed up on.’”
The above speaks for itself. The only thing I will add is how many Republican election officials, judges, secretaries of state, governors, cybersecurity officials, and now a small but increasing number of Republican elected officials will it take to tell the outgoing president he lost because he got fewer votes and have it sink in?
They need to use the term that maybe, just maybe, will rattle his core as he plays this masculine role with false bravado – man up and admit you lost.
