Barr has authorized federal prosecutors to investigate allegations of voter fraud in key swing states. Federal prosecutors across the U.S. are now available to investigate what Barr calls “substantial allegations’ of voter fraud, particularly in battleground states.
Fox News has reported that a memo they’ve acquired says that AG Barr has advised that allegations of voter fraud “should be handled with great care.” The memo goes on to say that “specious, speculative, fanciful or far-fetched claims should not be a basis for initiating federal inquiries,” suggesting that evidence Barr has based his decision on is significant enough to warrant further action.
Any investigation of claims of irregularities that, if true, would clearly not impact the outcome of a federal election in an individual State should normally be deferred until after the election certification process is completed.
Barr was seen visiting Mitch McConnell’s office earlier today, but declined address reporters when he left.
However, McConnell did express his support of Trump right to seek remedies in the courts.
The Trump campaign is currently filing 4 to 5 lawsuits in battleground states to look into credible reports from whistleblowers and voters who’ve been disenfranchised or had dead relatives vote in the election.
