Attorney General William Barr claims that there is no evidence of widespread voter fraud, according to The Hill.
“To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election.”
“There’s been one assertion that would be systemic fraud and that would be the claim that machines were programmed essentially to skew the election results. And the DHS [Department of Homeland Security] and DOJ [Department of Justice] have looked into that, and so far, we haven’t seen anything to substantiate that.”
“Again, with the greatest respect to the Attorney General, his opinion appears to be without any knowledge or investigation of the substantial irregularities and evidence of systemic fraud,” Giuliani said.

Trump has for weeks made the false claim that the election was stolen from him, arguing almost daily that there are enough fraudulent votes in major cities in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, Michigan and Georgia that would change the outcome. But his legal team has yet to provide any such evidence in court, with several lawsuits being dismissed for lack of standing.
Barr on Tuesday appeared to knock down one theory propagated by attorney Sidney Powell, who recently worked alongside Trump’s legal team, that Dominion Voting Systems machines were used to change votes and were backed by communist money.
Barr’s clear dismissal of Powell’s claims come as she and other Trump backers have spread inflammatory ideas on social media urging the president to suspend the election results and invoke the Insurrection Act.
Trump’s campaign lawyers brushed aside Barr’s comments in a statement of their own on Tuesday.
