Attorney Lin Wood has raised a number of questions to William Barr after the U.S. attorney general claimed that the Justice Department (DOJ) has not seen conclusive evidence of voter fraud to overturn the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.
Barr in an interview with The Associated Press said that U.S. attorneys and FBI agents have been following up on specific complaints and information they received, but they have not uncovered evidence of widespread voter fraud.
“To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election,” Barr told the newswire service.
In a respond to Barr’s comments, Wood, a conservative lawyer, raised seven questions that he said are “fair” to Barr.
Among the questions, the attorney asked Barr how much time the DOJ has spent on its investigation, if the experts were involved, how many poll watchers they have interviewed.
Wood also wondered about how many Dominion machines the DOJ has analyzed.
Fair questions for AG Bill Barr:
1. Did you investigate voting fraud?
2. What did you do?
3. What did you find?
4. How much time did you spend?
5. Were experts involved?
6. How many Dominion machines analyzed?
7. How many poll watchers interviewed?
We foot bill. We need answers.

The question was raised after Barr also said that there was no evidence yet to substantiate systemic machine fraud.
“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. And the Department of Homeland Security and DOJ have looked into that, and so far, we haven’t seen anything to substantiate that,” Barr said in the interview with the AP.
Barr also said, “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. Some have been broad and potentially cover a few thousand votes. They have been followed up on.”
While asking the answers, Wood again mentioned about a potential case of the election fraud in Georgia where “Chinese money, George Soros money, or Bill Gates money” could have been used to manipulate the results.
“Any public or private citizen of GA who took Chinese money, George Soros money, or Bill Gates money to manipulate our election in any manner is a TRAITOR. We need to root them out of their holes & lock them up,” Wood wrote in a follow-up tweet.

Wood last week filed a lawsuit against Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, releasing evidence of election fraud to argue that the state’s election was carried out unconstitutionally.
Wood’s response to Barr’s comments echoed to President Donald Trump’s legal team.
The president’s lawyers, led by Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis, said that they “have gathered ample evidence of illegal voting in at least six states,” which the DOJ has not examined.
“We have many witnesses swearing under oath they saw crimes being committed in connection with voter fraud. 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,” they said in a statement.
The legal team added that the attorney general’s opinion “appears to be without any knowledge or investigation of the substantial irregularities and evidence of systemic fraud.”
President Trump on Wednesday shared a video providing evidence that Democrats in Nevada are running a cash-for-votes scheme on Native American reservations, offering T-shirts, gas cards, and raffle tickets in exchange for voting.
