DOJ corrects media for reporting that Barr told the AP he found no widespread election fraud


The corrupt media establishment may no longer disguise its bias in favor of the left, believing they have successfully defeated President Trump in the 2020 election, but one might think that they would peddle less fake news.

One would be wrong, as seen this week with numerous reports that Attorney General Bill Barr had concluded the Justice Department investigation into allegations of voter fraud, having found no evidence to support the claims.

 

CBS News investigative correspondent Catherine Herridge tweeted a statement from the DOJ disputing those reports.

“Some media outlets have incorrectly reported that the Department has concluded  its investigation of election fraud and announced an affirmative finding of no fraud in the election. That is not what the Associated Press reported nor what the Attorney General stated,” a spokesperson said. “The Department will continue to receive and vigorously pursue all specific and credible allegations of fraud as expeditiously as possible.”

The AP reported that Barr said U.S. attorneys and FBI agents have been following up on specific complaints and information they have received, but “to date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

“There’s been one assertion that would be systemic fraud and that would be the claim that machines were programmed essentially to skew the election results,” Barr added. “And the DHS and DOJ have looked into that, and so far, we haven’t seen anything to substantiate that.”

The media that carried Joe Biden across the finish line and then rushed to call the race in his favor are desperate to move on from the election, even though President Trump has a number of pending legal actions in support of voter fraud claims.

Trump’s legal team, led by Rudy Giuliani, criticized Barr in a statement released in response to initial reports.

“With all due respect to the Attorney General, there hasn’t been any semblance of a Department of Justice investigation,” the statement said. “We have gathered ample evidence of illegal voting in at least six states, which they have not examined.”

“We have many witnesses swearing under oath they saw crimes being committed in connection with voter fraud,” the release continued. “As far as we know, not a single one has been interviewed by the DOJ. The Justice Department also hasn’t audited any voting machines or used their subpoena powers to determine the truth.”

Keep in mind that with Democrats exploiting the pandemic to establish the universal mailing of ballots in many states, Barr himself warned of the potential for fraud.

“Elections that have been held with mail have found substantial fraud and coercion,” he said on CNN in early September.

There was a mad rush by the media to fact check this statement and declare it false.
