After AG Bill Barr says no evidence of widespread fraud in 2020 election, 9 Texas Republicans decry “shocking lack of action” on allegations
On the same day that U.S. Attorney General William Barr said the Justice Department had found no evidence of widespread fraud in the 2020 election, nine Texas Republicans in Congress signed a letter chastising Barr for a “shocking lack of action” in response to unproven allegations that fraud occurred. They released the letter hours after Barr publicly stated there were no indications the election would be overturned, saying that the Justice Department has followed up on specific complaints. “To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election," Barr told the Associated Press. The letter signed by Cloud and other House members pleaded for the Justice Department to issue subpoenas and search warrants to review ballot materials and election devices. Prior to the election, Barr was one of the Cabinet officials who was closest to the president.
