The mainstream media now think they have the power to declare the presidential winner.
But that’s not the way the American system works.
William Barr issued one command to the DOJ that horrified Democrats.
The Democrats have investigated Donald Trump at every possible turn even when there was no evidence to back their claims.
And for years the mainstream media ran with the story that Trump did not win the White House legitimately.
In 2020 many states made large-scale changes to their voting systems and sent out a large number of ballots unrequested.
Making large-scale changes right before the election was a bad idea and made the election more insecure.
Thirty-nine House Republicans asked that the DOJ investigate election irregularities.
However, Democrats went ahead with the changes and now are trying to insist that the results cannot be double-checked but Attorney General William Barr isn’t listening to Democrats and has authorized the DOJ to investigate voting irregularities.
Barr issued a memo stating:
“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 memo read.
Barr noted in his memo that states have the primary job of overseeing elections but said that the DOJ 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 added that the DOJ had already taken action in some specific instances.
“Given this, and given that voting in our current elections has now concluded, 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,” he said.
If there are any cases of voter fraud that could change the outcome of the election they need to be done fast before the inauguration.
“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,” he said.
“The American people and the leaders they freely elect deserve nothing less,” he continued.
This shouldn’t be a contentious statement.
Yet Democrats are accusing Barr of using the DOJ as a political tool.
They shouldn’t have to worry unless there actually is widespread voter fraud that would change the election results.
But suddenly the Democrats aren’t in favor of investigations and want to pretend that the election is over.
