Pursue “irregularities” in 2020 Election, says Attorney General William Barr


U.S. Attourney General William Barr

WASHINGTON – U.S Attorney General William Barr wrote a letter authorizing federal prosecutors to pursue the allegations on tabulation and voting irregularities. This would be the first time since last week’s election that the U.S Attorney General has addressed President Donald Trump’s claims of mass voter fraud. Mitch McConnell, the Republican Senate Majority Leader stated several hours after Mr. Barr’s letter was presented that Mr. Trump is well within his rights to look at irregularities of the election. 

“I authorize you to pursue substantial allegations of voting and vote tabulation irregularities prior to the certification of elections in your jurisdictions in certain cases, as I have already done in specific instances,” said Mr. Barr.
