Posted on 11/08/2020 5:01:25 PM PST by SeekAndFind
A coalition of 39 House Republicans on Saturday sent a letter to Attorney General William Barr, asking the Department of Justice to investigate allegations of potential voter fraud. According to the members, it's important for Americans to have "the utmost confidence" in the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.
Below is the full letter:
Dear Attorney General Barr,
While each state runs its own election process, the United States Department of Justice is ultimately responsible for the integrity of federal elections. The American people must have the utmost confidence that the outcome of the presidential election is legitimate.
With widespread reports of irregularities, particularly in the vote counting process, it is time for you to use the resources of the Department to ensure that the process is conducted in a manner that is fully consistent with state and federal law. And, it is also important that the process be completely transparent, so that the American people will have full confidence in the result.
The Justice Department's Civil Rights Division Voting Section's responsibility to ensure that the right to vote is sacred. This not only means access to the ballot box, but it also means ensuring that no one's vote is devalued by any means of voter fraud.
The U.S. Marshals Service is also available to ensure that judicial orders are carried out. When it comes to a federal election, it should not matter whether those judicial orders come from a state or federal court. For example, if a state court orders that observers can watch ballot counting in a federal election, no local election official should be able to defy that order.
With that in mind, we request an immediate response to the following questions. What are you doing to ensure the integrity of the voting and counting process right now? Will you commit to using all the resources at your disposal to ensure that only legal votes are being counted and being counted in a fully transparent and manner immediately?
Thank you for your prompt reply.

Other elected officials, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Gov. Kristi Noem (R-SD), have said the court process needs play out before a definitive winner of the presidential election can be determined.
Despite multiple members of the press saying they need more "evidence" of what's taking place, these instances are being ignored. The same thing goes for United States Postal Service whistleblowers who have stepped forward to say postmasters are backdating the dates ballots were received.
There have been a string of USPS whistleblower cases that Project Veritas has made public. Project Veritas released their first video of a United States Postal Service worker in Traverse City, Michigan, coming forward to expose their supervisor, Johnathan Clarke, potentially engaging in voter fraud. The second video released Thursday afternoon allegedly shows a USPS worker in Las Vegas, Nevada, talking about handing over a "handful" of ballots to an undercover journalist. The blank ballots were collected because they were allegedly sent to the wrong address. The third video was Hopkins' original report. Video number four was of a USPS whistleblower in Coraopolis, Pennsylvania who claimed supervisors and other higher-ups are ordering carriers to backdate ballots received after Election Day.
Voter fraud is such a concern that the Michigan State Legislature convened a rare Saturday session to address it. One of the main focuses was a software glitch that caused 6,000 votes in Antrim County to be incorrectly counted for Joe Biden. Once the a hand-count had taken place, those 6,000 votes went to President Trump. The Michigan Secretary of State, however, has said that this was "human error," not a "software glitch."
Thread: In case y’all are wondering who at the DOJ is in charge of election law matters at the @TheJusticeDept — there are two places to look. First, the Civil Rights Division of DOJ, which is headed by Eric Dreiband, Don McGahn (former WH Counsel) law partner. DOJ says it sent/ Harmeet K. Dhillon (@pnjaban) November 8, 2020
YIKES ON TWEET 4 OF THREAD.
Does he ever?
For a long time, it has felt like AG Barr has been stringing everything out, perhaps in hope that he can avoid taking strong action on anything.
The EC meets in Dec to finalize this thing. Barr either gets moving, or he makes it clear that he’s fine with Biden stealing this thing. No time for dithering now.
Waste of paper and ink.
IF we had a real bulldog-type of AG since the very start, much of what has happened, wouldn’t have. Both were/are complicit in taking the POTUS out.
Thats is Trumps fault. Twice he picked wrong guy. I start to believe he was not good at selecting and vetting person
Barr sends his regards, but he’s busy with the bagpipes at the moment.
He’ll get back to you sometime. Maybe.
That has been Trumps undoing ...at least up to this point. Piss poor picks for critical positions.
I bet Barr is hoping Biden will keep him on since he is obviously at traitor to President Trump. If by some miracle illegal ballots are tossed and true justice prevails the first thing Trump should do is fire everyone and hire the most conservative replacements he can find.
“...Thats is Trumps fault. Twice he picked wrong guy. I start to believe he was not good at selecting and vetting person...”
You are correct to some degree.
However, he had to rely on advice and thought that the GOP was behind him...which is wasn’t. He was naive in that assumption.
Getting a much needed bulldog-type AG thru those azzholes was next to impossible because they were guilty as hell as well. The GOP is complicit in this overthrow....which is another reason I changed my party affiliation from GOP to Independent.
Only 39 out of @180?
Where are the rest?
Where is RINO Kevin McCarthy?
would be a nice trap for democrats. Barr starts a nationwide investigation, orders the U.S. Marshals to seize and secure all ballots. The democrats will run to the most conservative court in our lift time praying for a ruling in their favor....
You do know the Justice Dept. is investigating this fraud?
Has Bilbo Bagpipes left a forwarding address?
Knew my rep would sign off.
My aren’t we the negative one!
Trump didn’t have much choice when people are recommended to him for jobs by idiots like Chris Christie and others that are failures.
Also, he has been hamstringed by the likes of McConnell whom won’t let him get anyone that is worth a damn.
Try being a little positive as that what is needed right now.
Really cannot tell the difference between Sessions and Barr. Barr just talked more.
