Here we go.
People have been wondering where Attorney General Bill Barr has been with all these swirling questions of voter fraud and irregularities.
Well, wonder no longer. He’s on it and the fight is on.
He clearly thinks there’s enough smoke to pursue the issues, authorizing prosecutors to pursue “substantial allegations” of voting irregularities from the election.

“While serious allegations should be handled with great care, specious, speculative, fanciful or far-fetched claims should not be a basis for initiating federal inquiries.”
Good, then it’s hard just to dismiss the claims as media and Democrats have been trying to do if prosecutors are formally looking into it.
Barr declared it “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” and that the DOJ had an obligation to ensure that the voters could have “full confidence” in the process.
“I authorize you to pursue substantial allegations of voting and vote tabulation irregularities prior to the certification of elections in your jurisdictions in certain cases, as I have already done in specific instances. Such 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[…..]
While it is imperative that credible allegations be addressed in a timely and effective manner, it is equally imperative that Department personnel exercise appropriate caution and maintain the Department’s absolute commitment to fairness, neutrality and non-partisanship. You are the most senior leaders in the United States Department of Justice and I trust you to exercise great care and judgment in addressing allegations of voting and vote tabulation irregularities. While serious allegations should be handled with great care, specious, speculative, fanciful or far-fetched claims should not be a basis for initiating federal inquiries. Nothing here should be taken as any indication that the Department has concluded that voting irregularities have impacted the outcome of any election. Rather, I provide this authority and guidance to emphasize the need to timely and appropriately address allegations of voting irregularities so that all of the American people, regardless of their preferred candidate or party, can have full confidence in the results of our elections. The American people and the leaders they freely elect deserve nothing less.
The left is already melting down, that’s how you know it’s good.
Here’s Crazy Mazie:
Bill Barr disgraces his office again by acting like Trump's consigliere — sending US Attys on a fishing expedition to legitimatize baseless conspiracy theories.
Come Jan. 20, it will be a relief to have an AG who will uphold the rule of law on behalf of the American people. https://t.co/UqVicDAIHQ

Now, the DOJ can make it good and call out what’s going on. Make it very clear for all Americans so there is absolutely no question.
