According to Minister William Barr, the US Department of Justice has so far found no evidence of the election fraud alleged by US President Donald Trump on a large scale. “To date, we have not seen any fraud to the extent that it could have led to a different election result,” Barr told the American news agency AP. The attorney general contradicted Trump.
The attorney’s remarks come as a surprise: Barr is considered a Trump loyalist and has repeatedly backed the president in the past. Shortly after the AP interview was published, Barr was seen arriving at the White House. According to a spokeswoman for the Ministry of Justice, he appeared there for a “previously agreed meeting”.
Lawyers jump in on Trump immediately
Trump’s lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis immediately contradicted the Justice Minister’s assessment: There was not even “the appearance of an investigation by the Justice Department”. There is ample evidence of “illegal voting in at least six states”. Barr apparently commented on the matter “without knowledge”, said the president’s legal team. “We will continue our pursuit of the truth about the justice system and the state parliaments.”
Trump has been talking about alleged electoral fraud that is said to have helped his challenger Joe Biden to victory for weeks. Those responsible for elections and experts strongly disagree. The Trump camp also failed with a series of lawsuits against the election. Numerous states have now certified the election results, including the embattled key states of Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia, Arizona and Wisconsin.
In the election four weeks ago, Biden had secured 306 out of a total of 538 voters. The former vice president needed at least 270 electoral women and men for an election victory. The electors, who together form the so-called Electoral College, will cast their votes in their respective states on December 14th. Biden is slated to be sworn in as the 46th President in US history on January 20.
