AG William Barr‘s recent announcement has sent the left running scared. Barr has authorized federal prosecutors to pursue “substantial allegations” of voting irregularities in the 2020 election prior to certifying the results.
The memo from Barr was sent to U.S. attorneys and other federal law enforcement officials. In his memo, Barr praised the “strength of our democracy as more than 140 million Americans cast ballots to select their leaders.”
Now that voting has concluded, the Attorney General made an announcement that it was “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.”
Barr said that the Department of Justice had an obligation to ensure that federal elections were conducted in a manner that voters can have “full confidence in their electoral process and their government.”
JUST IN: AG Bill Barr directs U.S. Attorneys and others to pursue allegations of voting 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.” pic.twitter.com/Lea0bIulzr

An Obama appointee within the Department of Justice, Director of the DOJ Election Crimes Unit Richard Pilger, immediately resigned after Barr’s announcement. Pilger, who is reportedly linked to the IRS Scandal, chose to run scared rather than investigate voter fraud. This gives a clue as to which party he supports, and his lack of ethics regarding the integrity of our elections.
2:30pm: Bill Barr meets with @senatemajldr.
3:23pm: @senatemajldr defends Trump in Senate speech.
7pm: Barr authorizes DOJ to investigate election fraud.
8pm: Obama lackey Richard Pilger resigns from DOJ election crimes job.
Maybe the GOP decided to fight.

Democrats are trying to reassure themselves that there is no way they can lose. A left-wing professor tweeted: “Don’t overreact to Barr’s empty memo. Stay confident.
Be patient. Keep calm. He is leaving.” Sounds like a mantra the left repeats to themselves daily, trying to keep themselves insulated from any opposing viewpoints or evidence that may shatter their worldview. Sounds like they’re scared of what the investigation might find.
Biden is ahead of Trump by 45,000 in Pennsylvania. In 2000, the gap between Bush and Gore in Florida was 537. There is NO scenario by which this result gets overturned. Don't overreact to Barr's empty memo. Stay confident. Be patient. Keep calm. He is leaving.

The Democrats, who spent the last 4 years denying and trying to overturn the results of the 2016 election, are now trying to prevent President Trump from taking actions he is legally allowed to do to ensure the integrity of the 2020 election.
