Attorney General William Barr said the Justice Department had not uncovered evidence of widespread electoral fraud that would alter the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.

His comments come despite repeated unsubstantiated claims by President Donald Trump that the election was stolen, his efforts to undermine the 2020 presidential election results, and his refusal to admit his loss to President-elect Joe Biden.

Mr. Barr said U.S. attorneys and FBI agents worked to follow up certain complaints and information they received, but they found no evidence that could change the outcome of the election.

« To date, we have not seen any fraud on a scale that could have resulted in a different election result, » said Barr.

The comments are particularly direct from Mr. Barr, who was one of the President’s most ardent allies. Before the election, he had repeatedly voiced the notion that fraud against mail-in voters during the coronavirus pandemic could be particularly vulnerable to fraud as Americans feared they would vote and wanted to vote by mail instead.

Shortly after Mr. Barr’s statement was released, President Trump tweeted baseless allegations of election fraud.

And his attorney Rudy Giuliani and his election campaign made a damning statement claiming that « with all due respect to the Attorney General, there has been no appearance of an investigation ».

Last month, Mr. Barr issued a policy to US attorneys across the country allowing them to prosecute any « material allegation » of voting irregularity if it existed before the 2020 presidential election was confirmed, even though at that time as yet there was no evidence of widespread fraud.

This memorandum gave prosecutors the opportunity to bypass the Justice Department’s longstanding policy of normally prohibiting such overt acts before the election was confirmed.

Shortly after the release, the ministry’s chief electoral officer announced that he would be stepping down from that position based on the memo.

Hope everyone is watching @OANN right now. Other media are afraid to show. People step forward like never before. Big truck bringing hundreds of thousands of fraudulent (FAKE) ballots to a polling station? TERRIBLE – SAVE AMERICA!

The Giuliani-led Trump campaign team has alleged a widespread Democratic conspiracy to cast millions of illegal votes into the system with no evidence.

You have filed several lawsuits in battlefield states alleging that partisan polling observers in some places at polling stations were not clear enough and therefore something illegal must have happened.

The claims have been repeatedly dismissed, including by Republican judges, who have ruled that the lawsuits contained no evidence. Local Republicans in some battlefield states have followed President Trump and made similar unsupported claims.

President Trump has railed against the elections in tweets and interviews, despite his own administration saying the 2020 elections were the safest ever.

President Trump recently allowed his administration to begin transitioning to Mr Biden, but has still refused to admit that he lost.
