Attorney General Bill Barr outlined the electoral intrigues of President Donald Trump on Monday, when he said he would not appoint a special counsel to investigate election fraud or Hunter Biden because there is no requirement.
Trump has not yet accepted the election, and some allies have suggested the federal government confiscate voting machines. Over the weekend, Trump met with appellate attorney Sydney Powell about a possible voter fraud investigation.
Pressed by journalists over a special counsel investigation, voter fraud and the confiscation of voting machines, Brar offered little support for any such move.
“There is no longer any basis for the confiscation of machines by the federal government – the wholesale seizure of machines by the federal government,” he said, adding that he stood by his statement that there was no widespread fraud that would have led to the presidential election result Will affect.
The Attorney General added on a potential special counsel investigation into voter fraud: “If I felt that a special counsel at this stage was the right tool and was appropriate, I would – I would name one, but I haven’t, and I said, ‘I’m not going.’
Trump tweeted last week that Barr would step down as attorney general just before Christmas; Deputy Attorney General Jeff Rosen will serve as acting Attorney General for the final weeks of Trump’s term.
The president has spent months arguing widespread voter fraud in the election, baselessly claiming that he lost the general election in November because of it. Barr, who entertained the possibility of fraud earlier this year, severed ties with Trump earlier this month that there was no evidence of widespread fraud in the 2020 election.
Trump has also claimed without evidence that President-elect Joe Biden, while holding the office of his vice-president, corruptly promoted his son’s business work and Hunter Biden was being paid by foreign governments.
Barr has said that the authorities were handling the ongoing investigation of Young Biden’s taxes properly and dismissed a question about a special counsel investigation into Hunter Biden.
“To the extent that there is an investigation, I think it is being handled responsibly and professionally currently within the department and at this point, I have not seen any reason to appoint a special counsel, and my first I have no plans to leave, ” said Barr.
NBC News reported that federal officials investigating Hunter Biden’s taxes are investigating his business dealings in China.
The source said that Hunter Biden announced on Wednesday that his father had announced his candidacy for the presidency in 2018. When Barar was appointed Attorney General, the investigation was already in motion.
