Attorney General Barr authorizes probes into alleged 'voting irregularities' amid Trump's unfounded 'fraud' claims

ATTORNEY General William Barr has authorized the Department of Justice to look into voting irregularities in the 2020 election despite there being no evidence of voter fraud.

Although little evidence of widespread voter fraud in the states Trump has a legal battle in, Barr's move to sign off on investigations into those states legitimizes the president's accusations.


The Biden campaign has already faced challenges from federal agencies in the Trump administration in the three days that have elapsed since being determined the winner of the election.

The head of the General Services Administration – which leads the transition between presidential administrations – has yet to formally begin the transition process.

Likewise, the attorney general's push for DOJ investigations comes in accordance with other top Republicans who have yet to publicly put pressure on Trump to concede the election.

Many, like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, fear publicly alienating the president or his fervent supporters as they risk hold of the Senate majority lead, as determined by a special election in Georgia.


This also comes as Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani, days after holding a press conference at the Four Season Total Landscaping explaining lawsuits to come, refuses to accept the election results.

"FakeNews won’t cover law suit which will invalidate 300,000 or more crooked democrat votes votes in Philly," Giuliani tweeted. "Real Clear Politics just took PA away from Biden and made it a toss up. Only the beginning please look beyond the Big Media censorship to watch it all change."

Giuliani is referring to a new lawsuit the president has initiated in Philadelphia, where the campaign is launching a bid to disqualify hundreds of thousands of votes in Pennsylvania's largest city, in the state that ultimately handed Biden the election.



Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany launched a series of accusations so baseless, Fox News decided to cut from the presser. In it, she falsely claimed illegitimacy with the Pennsylvania election system, and the start of the Trump campaign's lawsuit within the state.

Thousands of Trump supporters have gathered in swing states where Trump has alleged voter fraud and are arguing for a fair count of votes.

In Arizona, which handed Biden its 11 electoral votes after Trump lost by a still growing 21,000 votes, supporters of the president are participating in "Stop the Steal" protests across the state, including at the at the Maricopa County Tabulation and Election Center in Phoenix.
