Attorney General William Barr said Tuesday the Justice Department has found no evidence of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election. He told the Associated Press, “To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.” The statement is a rare act of defiance for Barr, a staunch Trump loyalist, as the president continues to make baseless claims of voter fraud even as his multiple lawsuits have failed. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer responded to Barr’s statement.
Sen. Chuck Schumer: “Well, in response to Attorney General Bill Barr, I guess he’s the next one to be fired, since he now, too, says there’s no fraud. Trump seems to fire anyone in that regard.”
