Trump Confidence in Bill Barr? ‘Ask Me…in a Number of Weeks from Now’

'They should be looking at all of this fraud...'

(Headline USA) Earlier this week, Attorney General William Barr told the Associated Press that U.S. attorneys and the FBI had looked into allegations of election irregularities and found no evidence of widespread voting fraud that would change the outcome of the election — yet.

“To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election,” he said on Tuesday.

Trump shot back at Barr on Thursday, saying the Justice Department “hasn’t looked very hard” and calling it a disappointment.

But he stopping short of implying Barr’s future as attorney general could be cut short.

“Ask me that in a number of weeks from now,” Trump said when asked if he still has confidence in Barr.

“They should be looking at all of this fraud,” Trump said.

He was also critical of Barr’s statement that much of what has been presented so far by the Trump campaign and its allies amounts to allegations that belong in lawsuits, not federal crimes.

“This is not civil. This is criminal stuff. This is very bad, criminal stuff,” Trump said.
