Attorney General Bill Barr has authorized federal prosecutors to investigate allegations of voter fraud, provided that the allegations are “clear and apparently-credible.” The AP reported that he signed off on such investigations in a letter sent Monday.
In a letter to federal prosecutors outlining the conditions for investigations into potential fraud, Barr laid out the criteria for warranting an investigation.
An investigation “may be conducted if there are clear and apparently-credible allegations of irregularities that, if true, could potentially impact the outcome of a federal election in an individual State.”
The criteria that Barr lays out mostly restricts legal investigations of alleged fraud to incidences where the fraud would potentially impact the outcome of the election itself. The plethora of closely-contested swing states such as Arizona, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania could conceivably be the subject of investigations, as even a small occurrence of potential voter fraud could impact the outcome of their elections.
Recounts, fraud investigations, and legal challenges are regular features of elections. There’s no reason to believe that they shouldn’t be included in this year’s presidential election. Campaign officials, candidates, and federal and state authorities should accurately and concisely probe and investigate election proceedings.
States have until December 8th to conduct recounts and investigations into election improprieties, with members of the electoral college meeting the next week to formally cast their votes for the candidates they represent.
Arizona Legislature to Hold Public Hearings on Matters of Election Integrity, “Stop the Steal” Rally Being Held Saturday
The hearing will be held on November 30th.
The Arizona legislature will hold a hearing on election improprieties and the integrity of the state’s 2020 election on Monday. Members of the Arizona Senate and House of Representatives will participate on the public event.
Representative Mark Finchem of Legislative District will chair the hearing.
“Since shortly before the 2020 election a number of my colleagues and I have been examining potential fraud pathways and illegal actions through which our 2020 election could become tainted. My worst fears have come to light in the process, and so far the evidence has been blocked from an official public forum,” Rep. Finchem said. “A few weeks ago I requested approval for the House Federal Relations Committee to hold a hearing on the integrity of the Arizona 2020 election. That hearing has not yet been approved by House leadership, and time is of the essence to show proof that our election has been compromised.”
Finchem cited sworn affidavits attesting to irregularities in Arizona’s election, voter fraud, and poor management on the part of (now outgoing) Maricopa County Recorder Adrian Fontes.
“After a review of the statistical anomalies, and there are to numbers to count, affidavits of improper actions, and community outrage that has grown out of what appears to voters to be an attempt to throw the election through a number of fraudulent efforts, we decided as a Members of the Legislature, and not as members of any specific committee, that we should move forward with a public hearing.”
Trump campaign attorneys Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis are expected to attend the hearing. Joe Biden appears to have won the state of Arizona by just over 10,000 votes.

State legislators have an imperative to remedy and rectify any election issues stemming from governmental improprieties, and can potentially appoint electors to the electoral college of their own volition.
A massive “Stop the Steal” rally is being held at the Arizona Legislature on Saturday at noon, with speakers including conservative commentator Nicholas J. Fuentes and Infowars host Alex Jones.
