Bill Barr was summoned to a meeting with Donald Trump on Tuesday after he said in an interview that the judiciary had found no evidence of widespread voter fraud.
A source briefing the meeting at a meeting published by ABC News on Wednesday evening said it was ‘intense’.
The attorney general was already on the White House grounds for a few hours Tuesday for other meetings, Trump wanted to talk to him.
During a press briefing Wednesday afternoon, White House Press Secretary Calehi McKenney said he did not know if Barr and Trump had met since the report was released and declined to comment on whether there was any change in upcoming staff.
‘I’m not aware when they talk. I know that the Attorney General was here yesterday for a pre-scheduled meeting with the Chief of Staff and they discussed various issues. But I don’t know if the president spoke to him directly, “McKennie told reporters.
Asked if he still has “faith” in Trump’s bar, McKennie said: “President, if he has a staff announcement, you’ll find out first.”
In an interview with the AP on Tuesday, Barr said the judiciary and the FBI have not been able to uncover any evidence that could change the outcome of the election.
“To date, we have not seen scale fraud that could affect different outcomes in elections,” Barr said.
After the meeting between the bar and Trump, a DOJ spokesman sent a statement claiming that the media had misrepresented the attorney general’s remarks from the interview.
Attorney General Bill Barr was summoned to a meeting with President Donald Trump after the verdict was announced and the judiciary found no evidence of widespread voter fraud.
Leaving the White House: Byrne was already in the White House for other meetings when Trump claimed he would talk to his attorney general.
After the meeting, a DOJ spokesman issued a statement claiming that the media had misunderstood and that Barr’s comments were ‘misreported’.
White House Press Secretary Calehi McKenney told reporters at a press briefing on Wednesday that he was not aware of whether Bar and Trump had spoken since the report and declined to comment on whether the president still had “confidence” in the bar.
“Some media outlets have misreported that the department has completed its investigation into electoral fraud and announced an investigation into any evidence of electoral fraud,” the spokesman said. “It’s not an Associated Press report or a statement from the attorney general.”
The statement said, “The Department will continue to receive and strictly follow up on all specific and credible allegations of fraud as soon as possible,” the statement said.
Joe Biden joked on Tuesday evening that the bar should be recorded in “witness protection” after his comments to the AP.
Speaking to The New York Times on Wednesday morning, Biden laughed and said that Barr had only asked him if he could get him on the witness protection program to interrogate him.
Although Barr did not actually support Democrats, Biden is advising his release on the election, acknowledging that there is no way to withdraw Trump’s results.
Former Vice President Bar বারa has since made rumors against the angry mob that he will be the next person in the Trump administration with only a few weeks left.
Despite Trump’s repeated claims that the election was rigged and rigged, the bar’s comments came as he spread the clip on multiple claims of voter fraud.
Trump still refuses to acknowledge Biden.
The comments came directly from one of the president’s most persuasive allies.
Prior to the election, he repeatedly raised the notion that mail-in voter fraud could pose a particular risk for fraud during the coronavirus epidemic because Americans feared going to the polls and decided to vote by mail instead.
Biden went on to say that he felt that Trump had succeeded in his bid for the presidency by becoming one of the most influential people in the country.
“I think I’ve done something good for the country by ensuring that Donald Trump doesn’t become president for another four years,” Biden told The Times.
‘But there was no moment of joy,’ he said, referring to an uncertain time of the epidemic and the situation with a president who refused to deny defeat. ‘It’s just one of these moments. There is a lot to do. I’m focused on doing what I can. ”
Barr issued a directive to the United States to pursue “substantial allegations” of voting irregularities before the 2020 presidential election was confirmed.
The memorandum gives prosecutors the power to revise long-term DOJ policies that typically prohibit such disclosures before election certificates.
Joe Biden joked in an interview Tuesday evening that Barr needed to be put on witness protection for his comments.
Shortly after Barr issued the order, the department’s top electoral crime officer announced that he would step down because of a memo.
The Trump campaign’s legal team, led by Rudy Giuliani, has accused Democrats of a vast conspiracy to throw millions into the illegal voting system.
They have filed multiple lawsuits in the state of the battlefield alleging that Republican poll observers did not have clear opinions at polling stations in some places and therefore something illegal must have happened.
Giuliani and ally Trump’s lawyer Jenna Ellis raped Barr’s remarks in a statement.
“There was no sign of a judicial investigation with due respect to the attorney general,” they wrote.
The two said, “We have gathered enough evidence to vote illegally in at least six states.” ‘Many of our witnesses have sworn in that they have seen crimes involving voter fraud. As far as we know, not a single interview was conducted by the DOJ. The judiciary has not audited any voting machines or exercised their sub-powers to determine the truth.
‘Nevertheless, we will continue to search for the truth through the judiciary and the state legislature and move forward towards the constitutional order and every legal vote will be counted and every invalid vote will be ensured not to be taken. Again with the utmost respect for the Attorney General, his views appear to be significant irregularities in traditional forgery and without any knowledge or investigation of the evidence, ‘said Giuliani and Ellis.
Republican judges who have repeatedly rejected allegations of voter fraud lack evidence in cases that have ruled in their favor.
Trump has tweeted 24 times about the Dominion voting system, claiming the election was “rigged.”
Trump has spoken out against the election in tweets and interviews, although his own administration has said the 2020 election was the safest ever. Trump recently allowed his administration to begin relocating to Biden, but he has refused to admit defeat.
The Trump campaign and its allies have highlighted commonalities in each election: signature, privacy envelopes, and mail-in ballot mail problems, as well as the possibility of a small number of ballots being misused or lost.
But they have also requested federal probes for claims. Attorney Sidney Powell has created a fictional story of the electoral system, flipping votes, German servers preserving US voting information and Venezuelan-made electoral software “at the behest of Hugo Chavez,” – the late Venezuelan president who died in 2013. Powell was then removed after giving an interview where the legal team threatened to file a lawsuit against Georgia in a ‘biblical’ court.
Repeatedly did not name Paul but said: ‘There is a claim that there will be systematic fraud and it will be claimed that the machines were originally programmed to draw election results. And the DHS and DOJ have looked into it and so far we haven’t seen anything to prove it, ‘Barr said.
He said the public was confusing allegations of the federal criminal justice system into civil lawsuits. He said the national remedy for these allegations would be a top-down audit conducted by state or local officials, not the U.S. judiciary.
“There’s a growing tendency to use the criminal justice system as a predetermined fix-all, and people don’t like something that the judiciary wants to come and investigate,” Barr said.
He said there must first be a basis for believing that there is a crime of investigation.
‘Most claims of deception are very specific to specific situations or to a specific set of actors or behaviors. They are systemic complaints and not. These have gone down; They are being let down, ‘said Bar. ‘Some broad and potentially thousands of votes have been covered. They have been followed. ‘
Giuliani and Trump discussed a possible presidential pardon for Giuliani last week, the New York Times reported – Giuliani hinting at possible banking after Trump’s term expires. Giuliani has denied the report.
