Amid Election Tensions, Furious Trump Backers Demand to Know Where Bill Barr Is and Why He Won’t Step In
Pro-Trump characters are fired up, not only alleging the election was stolen away from President Donald Trump but also fuming with grievance over where Attorney General William Barr is during what many Republicans claim is widespread voter fraud occurring in key swing states kneecapping Trump from declaring re-election victory.
While Trump, on Thursday, claimed from the White House press briefing room that there is widespread voter fraud, no evidence has been presented to support those claims.
Naturally, numerous MAGA personalities on Twitter couldn’t resist tweeting about the thought of The Department of Justice and especially Barr coming to Trump’s rescue and sending political foes to prison.
Bill Barr won’t do a damned thing about anything.
He’s as bad as if not worse than Sessions.

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich on Fox News host Sean Hannity’s program Thursday night also called for the DOJ to jail election poll workers in Pennsylvania.
While Barr has been sent a letter from the Trump campaign about alleged voter fraud, the attorney general has yet to respond to any allegations of foul play publicly.
