You can already see it developing:
Do you see it? They’re going to pretend to investigate the vote fraud allegations, and then, after they conduct their fake investigation, they’re going to say, “Well, we found some voter fraud, but nowhere near enough to change the election’s outcome.”
And of course that will mean that Joe Biden is the most legitimate President in US history. So shut your damn mouth, you stupid, annoying-ass right-wing conspiracy theorists!
I don’t know why so many people on the right trust William Barr. The guy was George H.W. Bush’s Attorney General from 1991-1993. That’s not inherently disqualifying in and of itself, but it means he’s got serious Establishment Ties going back decades. Plus, in the 26-year gap between his two stints as Attorney General, he was on the boards of lots of major multinational corporations.
But the biggest thing about Barr: his much-hyped investigations of the Swamp haven’t yielded any results. And if he’s not able to expose the vote fraud in the 2020 election, all of his much-hyped investigations of the Swamp will vanish into thin air.
I am still not sold on this guy at all. If he does nothing about the 2020 election fraud, then he will leave office in less than two months having done nothing about the corrupt Swamp. He’ll go down as one of the biggest fraud ever.
However, the AP headline was, predictably, misleading.
If you go and read the AP article on the matter, even though it’s biased towards Biden to an almost comical degree, the actual quote from Barr paints a different picture than the headline indicates:
Barr told the AP that U.S. attorneys and FBI agents have been working to follow up specific complaints and information they’ve received, but “to date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”
The AP headline–“Disputing Trump, Barr says no widespread election fraud“–makes it seem like Barr has finished his investigation and found minimal amounts of fraud.
But he did not say his investigation was complete.
The funniest part here is that the AP takes a quote from Barr that his investigation has not yet found “fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election” and spins that as proof that Trump’s allegations of vote fraud are completely baseless.
The guy literally said they found vote fraud.
Shouldn’t that be the story? That there was voter fraud actually found?
We’ve been lectured for years that there is NEVER any vote fraud ANYWHERE EVER. But the US Attorney General just said on the record that they found voter fraud.
I love how the media acts as if the DoJ finding some vote fraud is the same as the DoJ finding no vote fraud.
Does the AP not understand that even one single fraudulent vote means the entire election is compromised?
Why would anyone commit a small amount of vote fraud that won’t change the outcome of an election? Just for the hell of it? Because it’s fun? Because some people just like to live dangerously?
No, you commit vote fraud to swing the result of an election. Otherwise, why the hell would you take the risk and commit a federal crime if it’s not actually going to make a difference in the election? It makes no sense at all.
If you conduct an investigation and find “some vote fraud, but not enough to change the election,” all that means is that you haven’t found all of the vote fraud.
