In his attempt to cling to power, and after his Attorney General told the Associated Press that there was no evidence of widespread voter fraud to overturn the presidential election results, Donald Trump is still alleging that “massive fraud” took place in November. Trump took questions from reporters at the White House and insisted that AG Bill Barr “hasn’t done anything.”
“He hasn’t done anything, so he hasn’t looked,” Trump falsely claimed.
“When he looks, he will see the kind of evidence that right now you are seeing in the Georgia Senate… they haven’t looked very hard, which is a disappointment,” he added.

Well, I’m not sure what that means exactly. I do not speak Turnip. But, according to what the AG told the Associated Press, “To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election.”
As we previously reported, Barr told the news outlet that U.S. attorneys and FBI agents have been working to follow up on specific complaints and information they’ve received. And, they’ve uncovered no evidence that would change the outcome of the November presidential election. So, that negates Trump’s claim that Barr hasn’t “done anything.” Again, the U.S. attorneys and FBI agents have been looking into complaints, which ultimately revealed no widespread voter fraud.
In February, Senate Republicans blocked an effort by Democrats to unanimously pass three election security-related bills, marking the latest attempt to clear legislation ahead of the November elections, The Hill reported. And in 2019, Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell blocked two bills on election security. And now, it’s December of 2020, and President-elect Joe Biden defeated Trump. The former reality show star and his Republican colleagues now want us to think they’re suddenly concerned about election integrity by spinning the thoroughly debunked myth of widespread voter fraud. You can’t make this stuff up.
