“To date, we have not seen enough fraud to affect a different outcome in the election,” Barr said.
Echoing President Donald Trump’s claim before the election that mail-in voting was not secure, Barr said both the judiciary and the Department of Homeland Security had been left empty-handed over allegations of fraud.
“There is a claim that it is a systematic fraud and that the machines were allegedly designed to avoid election results,” Barr said. “And DHS and DJ have taken note of it. So far we have not seen anything to confirm it.”
Two lawyers working for Trump quickly rejected the bar assessment on Tuesday, reiterating that “they have ample evidence that they voted illegally in at least six states” and that the attorney general did not have privacy.
“With the utmost respect to the Attorney General, his opinion appears to be without any knowledge or investigation of evidence of substantial malpractice and systematic fraud,” attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis said in a statement.
“People who are trying to change the rules for this, for this system – which is a matter of logic, very open to fraud and coercion – are irresponsible and dangerous and people are playing with fire,” Barr said.
