Washington, December 1st In an interview with the media on December 1, U.S. Attorney General Barr said that the department had not found any large-scale fraud that may affect the election results.
Barr made the above statement in an interview with the Associated Press on the same day. He said that U.S. prosecutors and the FBI have been following up on the allegations and information they have received, but “so far, we have not seen any large-scale fraud that may affect the election results.”
Before the election, Barr publicly said that large-scale mail-in voting could cause election fraud. He also ordered that prosecutors across the United States be allowed to investigate any “substantive allegations” of voting fraud before the election.
U.S. President Trump’s team subsequently issued a tit-for-tat statement, accusing the Department of Justice of not investigating the president’s allegations and claiming that there is a lot of evidence of fraud in the election.
Trump has not admitted defeat so far. Although few public statements were made after the election, he repeatedly questioned the fraud in the election on social media. Its team has filed a lawsuit in multiple states to demand a recount or suspend the election results certification process.
With Arizona and Wisconsin officially certifying election results on November 30, all the “swing states” that the Trump team initiated litigation have completed the election results certification process.
In response to the claim that there was a “use of voting machine systems to tamper with voting results” in the 2020 U.S. election, Barr said that the Department of Homeland Security and the Department of Justice have investigated this, “but so far we have not seen any evidence to prove this.”
Trump removed Krebs from the Department of Homeland Security’s Director of Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security in mid-November. The Bureau issued a statement saying that there was no evidence that any voting system had deleted, lost or changed ballots in the 2020 U.S. election, and that there was no damage to the voting system of any kind.” The November 3 election is the safest election in the history of the United States.”
Barr went to the White House that afternoon and left after staying for more than two hours. According to the U.S. Department of Justice, he attended a “pre-arranged meeting”, but the White House did not comment.
After Barr’s statement was reported, a spokesman for the U.S. Department of Justice issued another statement saying that the Department will continue to receive and actively pursue all specific and credible allegations of election fraud.
