Attorney General William Barr authorized federal prosecutors and investigators to initiate federal criminal investigations into “substantial allegations” of voter fraud in the Presidential election.
The left “immediately claimed that Barr was again using the Justice Department as a weapon against President Trump’s political opponents, and there is no evidence of vote fraud that warrants any federal investigations,” redstate.com reported.
Of course, the left offered zero evidence to support their claims.
“Richard Pilger stepped down as head of the Justice Department’s election crimes division after his boss, Attorney General William Barr, called for more investigations into voting fraud allegations coming from President Donald Trump. (Trump had no involvement in Barr’s decision).
Pilger submitted his letter Monday night shortly after Barr’s announcement, which followed nearly three days of growing cries of foul from Trump and top Republican leaders in Washington.
In his letter, Pilger wrote: ‘Having familiarized me with the new policy and its ramifications … I must regretfully resign from my role as Director of the Election Crimes Branch,’ NBC News reported.
Only hours earlier, Barr told U.S. attorneys in a letter that more investigations could move forward ‘if there are clear and apparently-credible allegations of irregularities that, if true, could potentially impact the outcome of a federal election in an individual State,” the Associated Press reported.
The attorney general made clear that “fanciful or far-fetched claims” shouldn’t be pursued,” ibtimes.com reported.
“Attorney General William P. Barr, wading into President Donald Trump’s unfounded accusations of widespread election irregularities, told federal prosecutors Monday that they were allowed to investigate allegations of voter fraud before the results of the presidential race are certified.
Barr’s authorization prompted the Justice Department official who oversees investigations of voter fraud, Richard Pilger, to step down from the post within hours, according to an email Pilger sent to colleagues that were obtained by The New York Times.
Barr’s directive ignored the Justice Department’s long-standing policies intended to keep law enforcement from affecting an election’s outcome. And it followed a move weeks before the election in which the department lifted a prohibition on voter fraud investigations before an election. Sun-sentinel.com reported.
President Trump had nothing to do with Barr’s decision to authorize federal law enforcement to investigate potential fraud. No doubt, the decision was made after a thoughtful analysis of the ineptness of election officials and their surrogates spread across the various states.
It is essential to remember that over 72 million American citizens voted for Trump to be President. The huge majority of this group do not believe the election was fair; indeed, their views are not unproven. Apart from the implied fraudulent acts of election officials and their surrogates or technical flaws in the computers allegedly calculating the vote totals, the mainstream media and Big Tech are doing their part to cast skepticism on the fraud and technology claims.
Trump supporters have rightfully formed the belief that the combination of the far-left media and big tech’s bias against Trump, from the moment he won the primaries, has factored into the alleged fraud; at every moment, and each time, President Trump makes a move, they are there to stop him regardless of the goodness of his acts. He can’t do anything right in their eyes. Their continuous denouncement of possible fraud adds to the shroud they have placed over Trump.
