US Attorney General Bill Barr said Tuesday that the Department of Justice has found no evidence of voter fraud significant enough to reverse Democrat Joe Biden’s defeat of President Donald Trump within the November 3 election.

“To date, we’ve not seen fraud on a scale that would have affected a special outcome within the election,” Barr told the Associated Press in an interview.

Barr made the comments as Trump’s campaign persists in trying to prove there was fraud in key states Georgia, Michigan, Pennsylvania et al. , hoping to stop Biden’s win from being made official within the body on December 14.

“With all due reference to the Attorney General, there hasn’t been any semblance of a Department of Justice investigation,” Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis said during a statement reacting to Barr’s announcement.

“We will continue our pursuit of the reality through the judiciary and state legislatures,” they said.

Attorneys for Trump have claimed everything from ballot-box stuffing and faux ballot printing, to thousands of dead people having voted, to vote-counting machines being programmed to favor Biden.

In several legal filings — all rejected by the courts — the Trump campaign has sought to invalidate many votes for Biden supported claims that lacked any evidence.

Barr didn’t address specific claims.

However, he told the press agency , “There’s been one assertion that might be systemic fraud which would be the claim that machines were programmed essentially to skew the election results.”

“And the DHS and DOJ have looked into that, then far, we’ve not seen anything to substantiate that,” he said, pertaining to the departments of Homeland Security and Justice.

Barr, long seen as a political loyalist to the president, said the sole potentially justifiable claims of fraud “are very particularized to a specific set of circumstances or actors or conduct.”

“They aren’t systemic allegations,” he said.

“Some are broad and potentially cover a couple of thousand votes. they need been followed abreast of .”

Barr’s comments were reported about an equivalent time he arrived Tuesday at the White House for unspecified meetings.

Around the time of the election, media reports said Trump was unhappy with the Department of Justice Chief for not making efforts to support his reelection, which Barr might be fired.
