Barr authorizes DOJ to investigate ‘substantial allegations’ of voting irregularities – Top DoJ Voter Fraud Investigator Quits…
Posted by Centipede Nation Staff on November 9, 2020 7:52 pm
The Associated Press obtained a memo to U.S. attorneys by William Barr who wrote that investigations “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.”
Dec. 8 is the cutoff date for States to resolve election disputes that include recounts and court contests. The outcome of the election is done by members of the Electoral College on Dec. 14.
Barr did also say that any allegations that doesn’t impact the elections should be delayed until after the elections are certified. From AP News:
He said any allegations that “clearly not impact the outcome of a federal election” should be delayed until after those elections are certified and prosecutors should likely open so-called preliminary inquiries, which would allow investigators and prosecutors to see if there is evidence that would allow them to take further investigative measures.
Barr does not identify any specific instances of purported fraud in the memo.
“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,” Barr wrote.
The NYTimes is reporting that Richard Pilger, the one who oversees voter fraud investigations – has quit:
“Having familiarized myself with the new policy and its ramifications… I must regretfully resign from my role as director of the Election Crimes Branch.”
Someone notify Richard Pilger that it is the DOJ’s responsibility for ensuring the integrity of federal elections.
The swamp is draining itself.
