US attorney general found no evidence of election fraud: Trump disagrees
The US Department of Justice found no evidence to support allegations of widespread fraud that could affect the presidential election. This was stated by US Attorney General William Barr, writes CNN.
Barr's comments, who have consistently supported President Donald Trump during his tenure, are essentially the official Republican reaction to the president's claims of widespread fraud that allegedly led to Joe Biden's victory.
“To date, we have not found any type of fraud on a scale that could affect the outcome of the election,” Barr said.
Barr, who often echoed Trump's pre-election claim that mail-order voting was unsafe, said the Justice Department and the Department of Homeland Security had reviewed allegations of alleged fraud and concluded that there was no such thing.
“There was one claim that, if confirmed, could be considered a systematic fraud. The point is that the counting machines were supposedly programmed to distort the election results, Barr said. "Both DHS and the Department of Justice have looked into this matter, and we have not seen anything to support such speculation."
Trump and his lawyers still trying to challenge the 2020 election results in some key states, even though some have already certified results.

Barr’s comments will almost certainly raise questions about Trump’s relationship with his attorney general in the future, especially given the fact that Chris Krebs, the chief executive of the Department of Homeland Security’s cyber division, was fired by the president over claims that Trump’s accusations of widespread electoral fraud were "extremely inaccurate."
Two lawyers working for Trump's headquarters quickly dismissed Barr's words, reiterating their claim that they have "sufficient evidence of illegal voting in at least six states."
“With the utmost respect for the attorney general, his opinion does not seem to be based on any information about the investigation of material violations and evidence of systematic fraud,” said lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis in a statement.
