Some 6.5 million voters are called to the polls for this double ballot, but nearly a fifth of the country will not be able to vote, due to the lack of a sufficient presence of the State in certain areas of the no

William Barr, a loyal lieutenant of Donald Trump, said Tuesday that he had not found any electoral fraud that could change the result of the presidential election in November. The US president has still not acknowledged his defeat to Democrat Joe Biden.

US Justice Minister Bill Barr said on Tuesday December 1 that he did not find sufficient "fraud" to invalidate Joe Biden's victory in the November 3 presidential election, contrary to Donald Trump's assertions .

This 70-year-old ultra-conservative is the first member of the president's bodyguard to publicly distance himself from the "rigged" election allegations hammered out by Donald Trump.

The Burkinabè government has warned Tuesday against "any drift", after the double presidential and legislative elections on Sunday that the opposition considers "enamelled with fraud". For its part, an ECOWAS mission, with representatives of the African Union and the UN, met members of the opposition for "preventive diplomacy".

This is worth establishing because if we think election fraud almost never happens then we will have a higher bar of evidence for the justification of any particular claim of fraud . The piece even went as far as to cast doubt on the 2000 US presidential election results on the basis of such concerns

“Joe Biden did not get 16 million more votes than Barack Hussein Obama,” Trump declared. Civil lawsuits brought by lawyer Sidney Powell allege “ massive election fraud ” in Georgia and You would think if you’re in the FBI or Department of Justice , this is the biggest thing you could be looking at.

"At this point, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could change the outcome of the election," he said in an interview with the US Associated Press. "There have been allegations of systematic fraud, according to which machines have been programmed to distort the results of the elections," he recalled. But the Ministries of Homeland Security and Justice "have investigated and, so far, have found nothing to back them up."

Sacking soon?

At midday on Tuesday, Bill Barr was spotted at the White House. This visit was "planned" before the publication of his remarks, assured his spokesman Kerri Kupec, without putting an end to the speculations on a possible departure of "the Attorney General" of the United States.

"I suppose he will be the next to be sacked since he, too, is now saying that there was no fraud," said Democratic Senators Leader Chuck Schumer.

As President Donald Trump and a consortium of legal professionals work toward election integrity, the left-wing domestic terrorists are taking to social media to threaten violence on the President and his supporters who are nobly working the legal and constitutional process of electing the next president .

We are just one state away from victory against the communists, the globalists and the deep state . And don’t forget what we reported just three days ago, how “Operation Scorecard” is a CIA-run vote rigging system that could intercept voting machines and alter votes in swing states .

Four weeks after the election, Donald Trump still refuses to concede defeat. Together with his allies, he has brought dozens of legal actions, most of which have been rejected by the courts or dropped.

"With all our respect"

On Sunday, he criticized the Ministry of Justice and the federal police for not helping him in his fight. "They are missing," he said on Fox News.

"There is a growing tendency to use the justice system as a tool to solve all problems and when people are unhappy about something, they wait for the Department of Justice to show up and 'investigate'", for his part regretted Bill Barr.

This pillar of government, much appreciated by elected Republican officials, had hitherto refrained from contradicting the president and had even, before the election, supported his opinion, questioning the reliability of the postal vote.

In early November, he authorized federal prosecutors to investigate suspicions of fraud without waiting for the certification of the results by the states, contrary to custom. But he called on them to intervene only in cases of "substantial" and "credible" allegations.

Hard court

His statements therefore represent a particularly hard blow for Donald Trump. In a statement, the president's lawyers sought to play them down. "With all due respect for the Attorney General, there has been no semblance of an investigation at the Department of Justice," Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis wrote in a statement. "His opinion does not appear to be based on knowledge or investigation of substantial irregularities and systematic fraud evidence," they added, promising to "continue their search for the truth."

In the November 3 ballot, former Vice President Joe Biden won more than 80 million votes against just under 74 million for Donald Trump. The Democrat has managed to take back a handful of key states that voted for the Republican in 2016 and has 306 voters against 232 for his rival. Even if the outgoing president does not recognize his defeat, the electoral college should therefore confirm his victory on December 14 for taking office on January 20.

Bill Barr also revealed on Tuesday that he had appointed an independent special prosecutor to continue to investigate the management of the investigations carried out from 2016 to 2018 into a possible collusion between Russia and Donald Trump's campaign team. He appointed Federal Prosecutor John Durham to this post to investigate precisely the investigators, which could include former FBI Director James Comey and former Special Prosecutor Robert Mueller.

John Durham was already investigating these issues under Bill Barr, but his appointment as special prosecutor will allow him to continue his investigations once a new Minister of Justice is appointed, after the departure of Donald Trump and the arrival of Joe Biden in office on January 20. It would be politically difficult for Bill Barr's replacement to shut down John Durham's activities.
