Bill Barr authorises Justice Department probe into mail-in fraud allegations

Published on November 10, 2020 by

US Attorney-General William Barr has given prosecutors the green light to investigate allegations of voter fraud but warned they must only be substantial claims.

“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,” Mr Barr said in a statement.

“Specious, speculative, fanciful or far-fetched claims should not be a basis for initiating federal inquiries.”

This comes as the Trump campaign launches legal action in a number of key swing states – Nevada, Arizona, Georgia and Pennsylvania.
