President Donald Trump complained on Thursday, Dec. 3, that Attorney General Bill Barr has not looked at the evidence for voter fraud in the presidential election that others are seeing.
“He hasn’t done anything,” President Trump answered a question from a reporter who asked him to respond to a recent comment from Barr after the attorney general indicated he has not seen enough evidence of fraud at this point to overturn the election results.
“He hasn’t looked. When he looks he’ll see the kind of evidence that right now you’re seeing,” the president said, pointing to what is happening in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and Michigan, which he said were “tremendous volumes” of evidence.
“They haven’t looked very hard, which is a disappointment, to be honest with you, because there’s massive voter fraud,” the president repeated.
“This is probably the most fraudulent election that anyone’s ever seen,” he said.
When asked if he still has confidence in Barr, President Trump responded, “Ask me that in a number of weeks from now. They should be looking at all of this fraud. This is not civil, he thought it was civil. This is not civil, this is criminal stuff. This is very bad criminal stuff.”
The Associated Press (AP) on Tuesday, Dec. 1, cited Barr saying that he had not seen conclusive evidence of voting fraud that could change the election outcome. Some media outlets quoted the AP concluding that a federal investigation into whether the Democratic Party resorted to election fraud to win the presidency had already ended.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) on Wednesday rejected mainstream news that misreported the AP coverage.
