Outgoing Attorney General William Barr said on Monday he will not be appointing a special counsel to investigate the presidential election or Hunter Biden. Barr made the statements during a press conference at the Justice Department to announce the filing of charges against Abu Agila Muhammad Mas’ud Kheir Al-Marimi in the 1988 terrorist bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 over Lockerbie, Scotland. Mas’ud is reportedly being held by the Libyan government.

Earlier this month Barr said he had secretly appointed U.S. Attorney John Durham as special counsel in October to investigate the government’s handling of the Crossfire Hurricane investigation. Barr submitted his resignation following a meeting with President Trump last Monday, effective Wednesday, December 23.

Barr on the election, “…As you said I’ve already commented on fraud. Let me just say that, you know there are fraud in, in unfortunately in most elections. I think we’re too tolerant of it and I’m sure there was fraud in this election. But I was commenting on the extent to which we had looked at suggestions or allegations of systemic or broad based fraud that would effect the outcome of the election and I already spoke to that and I stand by that statement.”

Question: “But about the idea of appointing a special counsel, would you, would you answer a question about whether you believe there’s enough there even with your, what you’ve already said, do you believe there’s enough evidence to warrant a special counsel to investigate that, perhaps Sidney Powell or someone else?”

Barr: “Well, if I thought a special counsel at this stage was the right tool and was appropriate I would do, I would name one, but I haven’t and I’m not going to.”

Barr on the Hunter Biden investigation, “…I think to the extent that there’s an invest, an investigation, I think that it’s being handled responsibly and professionally currently within the department and to this point I have not seen a reason to appoint a special counsel and I have no plan to do so before I leave.”

ABC News reported Barr also said he saw no basis for the federal government to seize for inspection voting machines.

…Barr said he didn’t see any basis for the federal government seizing voting machines used in key states, as Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, has suggested.

He did not directly answer if the president has the authority to issue that order.

“I see no basis now for seizing machines by the federal government, you know, a wholesale seizure of machines by the federal government,” he said.

During a Friday meeting with Trump at the White House, a source said, Guiliani, lawyer Sydney Powell and retired Gen. Michael Flynn discussed an executive order to seize and examine voting machines across the country…


Barr: ‘No Basis’ for Federal Government to Seize Voting Machines

Attorney General William Barr said Monday that he does not think the federal government has the authority to seize voting machines amid election fraud allegations.

When he was asked about whether Trump should implement a plan to seize voting machines that were used in the election, Barr said he doesn’t believe it should be carried out. Barr made the comments during an announcement about the 32nd anniversary of the Lockerbie bombing of Pan Am Flight 103 that killed 259 people near Scotland in 1988.

“I see no basis now for seizing machines by the federal government,” Barr said before clarifying that it’s in regards to the “wholesale seizure of machines” by the government.

Barr on Monday also stood by his assessment that the DOJ had not found evidence of election fraud that would overturn the election. The move drew ire from President Trump and his legal team, who said they have presented ample evidence to the contrary, while accusing Barr of slow-walking investigations into the origin of the FBI’s Russia-Trump probe.

But the attorney general said that he believes “there was fraud in this election” on Nov. 3. “Let me just say that there [is] fraud in, unfortunately in most elections, I think we’re too tolerant of it,” he added.

“I was commenting on the extent to which we had looked at suggestions or allegations of systemic or broad-based fraud that would affect the outcome of the election and I already spoke to that and I stand by that statement,” he said, referring to his prior statements.

The attorney general was also asked about claims that Trump should appoint a special prosecutor to look into voting machines, or investigate fraud allegations, Barr said he didn’t see a reason to.

Barr remarked, “ If I thought a special counsel at this stage was the right tool and was appropriate I would name one but I haven’t, and I’m not going to.”

Barr’s last day at the DOJ is Wednesday, Dec. 23. Trump announced last week that he submitted his resignation.

Over the past weekend, Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani declared that his team should be able to examine voting machines in Arizona.

“They don’t contain medical information,” Giuliani told Steve Bannon’s “War Room.” “They don’t contain illegal information. We don’t get to see who you vote for. It’s public information; [it] doesn’t even belong to you. The only reason you would be resisting our examining those machines is because you know you did something crooked.”

Giuliani stated that officials in Arizona—as well as Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Georgia—should make dozens of voting machines “available,” and that his team “can do it publicly.”

“You can have the press there, make sure we don’t do any damage to the machine. Give us eight hours,” he added, saying: “Do that in Georgia, do that in Arizona, do that in Michigan, and do that in Pennsylvania.”

One of the manufacturers of voting machines, Dominion Voting Systems, has said that its machines cannot change votes from one candidate to another, has no ties with foreign governments, the machines leave behind a paper ballot trail, and has said its employees cannot access the machines during tabulation efforts.
