U.S. Attorney General William Barr on Tuesday said the Department of Justice had found no evidence of widespread voter fraud that could upturn the Nov. 3 elections.

This is contrary to claims by President Donald Trump, who lost to former Vice President Joe Biden, that the election was rigged against him.

“You would think if you’re in the FBI or Department of Justice, this is the biggest thing you could be looking at.

“Where are they? I’ve not seen anything. They just keep moving along and they go on to the next president,” the president said on Fox News
