U.S Elections: Attorney General Set To Investigate Claims Of Fraud By Trump.

The Attorney General of the United States of America, William Barr has directed country’s department of Justice to investigate Donald Trump’s claims of voting irregularities in the 2020 presidential election.

In a memo signed on Monday, William Barr addressed U.S. Attorneys; the assistant attorneys general for the DOJ’s criminal division; civil rights division; the national security division; and the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), to look into the claims of President Trump.

Part of the Memo read;

“Now that the voting has concluded, it is imperative that the American people can trust that our elections were conducted in such a way that the outcomes accurately reflect the will of the voters.”

The Attorney General noted that although states are primarily responsible for the conduct and supervision of elections, the Department of Justice has “an obligation to ensure that federal elections are conducted in such a way that the American people can have full confidence in their electoral process and their government.”

He also said he has already authorized the DOJ to pursue substantial allegations of voting and voting tabulation irregularities in specific instances.

Stating that inquiries and reviews may be conducted if there are clear and apparently-credible allegations of irregularities that, if true, could potentially impact the outcome of a federal election in an individual state.

However he added that his authorization should not be taken to mean that voters irregularities as claimed by Trump and his party has affected the outcome of the election.

Although the winner of the election has not been officially declared, the media on Saturday projected Joe Biden as the President-elect after he scored over 270 electoral college votes.

However, President Donald Trump has rejected the result citing massive irregularities and election fraud in key battleground states where he believes he was leading.
