    Matt Zapotosky of The Washington Post wrote:Attorney General William P. Barr told The Associated Press on Tuesday that he has “not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election,” undercutting claims that President Trump and his allies have made — without evidence — of widespread and significant voting irregularities.

    In an interview, Barr suggested the FBI and Justice Department have looked into some fraud claims, and seemed to take particular aim at one, by attorney Sidney Powell, who alleged a grand conspiracy involving election software changing voting tallies.

    “There’s been one assertion that would be systemic fraud and that would be the claim that machines were programmed essentially to skew the election results. And the DHS and DOJ have looked into that, and so far, we haven’t seen anything to substantiate that,” Barr told The Associated Press, referring to the departments of Homeland Security and Justice.

    Though Justice Department officials have for weeks said that there was not evidence to substantiate the claims of Trump and his allies, Barr’s publicly breaking with the president is particularly significant.

    Before the election, Barr had warned repeatedly and forcefully about possible fraud that might come with mass mail-in voting, echoing the president’s attacks on the practice. Afterward, he reversed long-standing Justice Department policy and authorized prosecutors to take overt steps to pursue allegations of “vote tabulation irregularities” in certain cases before results are certified — drawing criticism that he was trying to magnify Trump’s claims of widespread voter fraud.

    That memo, though, only authorized actions in cases which could change the outcome of the election, and officials have previously told The Washington Post they were aware of no such investigations or evidence that would warrant them.

    In the interview, Barr said that most of the claims of fraud that had come to the department were “very particularized to a particular set of circumstances or actors or conduct. They are not systemic allegations. And those have been run down; they are being run down.”

    “Some have been broad and potentially cover a few thousand votes,” he said. “They have been followed up on.”

    In a statement, Rudolph W. Giuliani, Trump’s personal attorney, and Jenna Ellis, a legal adviser to the campaign, said, “With all due respect to the Attorney General, there hasn’t been any semblance of a Department of Justice investigation.”

    “Nonetheless, we will continue our pursuit of the truth through the judicial system and state legislatures, and continue toward the Constitution’s mandate and ensuring that every legal vote is counted and every illegal vote is not,” their statement said. “Again, with the greatest respect to the Attorney General, his opinion appears to be without any knowledge or investigation of the substantial irregularities and evidence of systemic fraud.”

    Since it became clear that Joe Biden won the election, Trump and his allies have sought to discredit the results, mounting unsuccessful court challenges and publicly decrying what they claim to be fraud and other irregularities. Even as news broke of Barr’s statements to The Associated Press, Trump was tweeting about “hundreds of thousands of fraudulent (FAKE) ballots” and a news conference advancing similar claims.

    Barr, meanwhile, was spotted at the White House, though a spokeswoman said it was a previously scheduled meeting, not with the president.

    An administration official, like others speaking on the condition of anonymity to detail a sensitive topic, told The Post that in recent months, Barr and Trump have “barely spoken” though they did have a conversation the week before Thanksgiving. The official said Barr has clashed with the president or his advisers recently.

    Before the election, the president was frustrated that John Durham, the U.S. attorney specially tapped by Barr to investigate the FBI’s 2016 investigation of Trump’s campaign, was not producing results that might publicly discredit his political opponents and aid his reelection bid. Then, Trump was upset the Justice Department was not doing more to support his claims of massive fraud, the official said.

    Trump had made his displeasure known publicly. In October, after it was reported that Durham would not release a report before the election, Trump said the delay was “a disgrace” and said he would relay his thoughts directly to Barr.

    “If that’s the case, I’m very disappointed,” Trump said during an interview with radio host Rush Limbaugh. “I think it’s a terrible thing. And I’ll say it to his face.”

    This past weekend, Trump took aim at the Justice Department and the FBI over their failure to back his election fraud claims,

    “You would think if you’re in the FBI or Department of Justice, this is the biggest thing you could be looking at,” Trump said on the show Sunday Morning Futures. “Where are they? I’ve not seen anything.”

    The president also suggested the bureau and the Justice Department were possibly “involved,” though did not offer any clarity.

    An administration official said those public disputes have also played out in private, as Barr did not come out publicly in recent months to support the president.

    “There have been clashes,” the official said.

    In the interview with The Associated Press, Barr endeavored to make clear that whatever disputes Trump might have with the election, the Justice Department would not be the appropriate institution to resolve them. The Justice Department, he said, examines crimes, while state or local officials audit voting results.

    “There’s a growing tendency to use the criminal justice system as sort of a default fix-all, and people don’t like something they want the Department of Justice to come in and ‘investigate,’ ” Barr told the Associated Press.

    When the Attorney General can step up and say that there is NO EVIDENCE of widespread voter fraud, Ladies and Gentlemen, this is all that Trump wants NOT to hear. His so called allies will do what they do best when it comes to Trump: they listen to him lie, repeat the lie, his base will swear by the lie and don't try to change their minds with facts. C'mon! This is embarrashing for him, but he's so blinded by his own fame and his own ego, a loss is something he never dreamed would happen. And unlike every other Presidential Candidate (whether he/she was President at the time of the election or not), he has not conceded the election.

    OK Donald Trump. It's time now. Grow a set, put on your big boy pants and finally come to terms. YOU LOST! THERE'S NO EVIDENCE OF FRAUD EXCEPT IN YOUR MIND!

    Like I started to say, put onyour big boy pants, act like a man and own your loss. Own you defeat. For once in your egotistical life, get out of your ego, and accept the fact that the American people have spoken. They have said, it's not us, it's you. We need a change, and it doesn't begin with you.

    Just Saying.
