US Attorney General Orders Investigation Into Alleged Election Fraud
U.S. Attorney General William Barr has allowed federal attorneys to investigate alleged irregularities in voting in the U.S. presidential election.
It should be noted that US President Donald Trump has repeatedly said that he lost the presidential election due to fraud.
According to foreign news agency AFP, William Barr, a close aide to Trump, quoted a letter written for attorneys across the country as saying that his letter was not intended to convince Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden. There is evidence of fraud in the election.
But William Barr freed prosecutors from previous restrictions on such investigations.
He said that after the allegations of electoral fraud in several states by the Republicans, they are still waiting for concrete evidence of the facts.
In his letter, William Barr said that the voting process in the current election is over. he authorized to follow up on allegations of irregularities in balloting and voting in some cases before the election certificate.
he said if there is clear and credible evidence of irregularities, it could potentially affect the outcome of the federal election.
The attorney general said that vote fraud investigations are usually under the purview of individual states that establish their own electoral rules.
“It’s never hard or fast,” William Barr told attorneys.
He stressed that if he sees anything that could disprove the election results, he should drill a hole in it.
US Attorney General William Barr wrote that while serious allegations should be handled with great care, disclosures, speculations, fictions or claims should not be the basis for launching a federal inquiry.
It should be noted that the Republican candidate in the US presidential election, Donald Trump, had claimed that he had been deceived.
In an unusual statement at the White House two days after the vote, Trump said he was “trying to steal the election.”
