Trump’s Minister of Justice wants a national investigation into voting fraud.
US Attorney William Barr has ordered prosecutors to investigate election fraud. His boss, President Trump, says there has been widespread fraud but comes with no evidence.
Barr writes in instructions to prosecutors that there are “substantial allegations of irregularities in voting and counting.” According to him, they should investigate this.
“I give my consent to investigate substantial allegations of fraud in voting or vote-counting before the election results become final,” Barr wrote in a letter. He does add that they should not go after ‘unrealistic or far-fetched’ claims.
