A spokesperson for the DOJ has come out to dispel misinformation being reported by the media on AG Barr’s comments from earlier today:
“Some media outlets have incorrectly reported that the Department has concluded its investigation of election fraud and announced an affirmative finding of no fraud in the election. That is not what the Associated Press reported nor what the Attorney General stated. The Department will continue to receive and vigorously pursue all specific and credible allegations of fraud as expeditiously as possible.”

Herridge later tweeted that the operative quote from the AP story was “U.S. attorneys + FBI agents have been working to follow up specific complaints + info they’ve received, but ‘to date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.’”
I think it’s a fair statement that AG Barr made if his people are in fact following up on complaints. Mark Levin seems to think they are not, as we mentioned earlier.
I know investigations take time and I hope Barr’s people are looking at the big stuff. I haven’t given up hope on him as many have. I get the angst with all that’s going on, but I still think Barr is the right man for the job. But considering Trump’s chances at winning, I expect Barr won’t be there for much longer.
