DOJ reverses course

Less than a month after Attorney General Barr’s Sgt. Schulz-style “I see nussing” imitation, the Department of Justice has finally detected election fraud:

Senior Adviser to the Justice Department John Lott reveals voter fraud was rampant in this year’s elections. In his new study, Lott revealed an unusual pattern of subtracting Trump votes from the final tally and adding excess votes to Joe Biden.

He found more than 11,000 Trump votes were subtracted in Fulton County, Georgia and another 44,000 Trump votes were wiped out in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania.

Lott also discovered that Biden received 289,000 “excess” votes across five battleground states and it’s unclear where those votes come from. President Trump shared the study on Twitter. He said elections officials gave Biden hundreds-of-thousands of fake votes.

However, it’s possible that Barr was only playing dumb. If you parse his words carefully, he was merely stating that the DOJ had not “uncovered evidence”, which did not necessarily mean that the DOJ was unaware of evidence that other parties had uncovered.

“The Justice Department has not uncovered evidence of widespread voter fraud that would change the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.”
