Barr Hits Bottom | FrontpageMag

Before the 2020 election, voters may recall, Joe Biden openly touted “the most extensive and inclusive voter fraud organization in the history of American politics.” Voter fraud is a crime, but Biden’s boast failed to spark any investigation by Attorney General William Barr. The addled Biden hunkered down in a basement and scarcely campaigned at all.

For AG William Barr, the Delaware Democrat won fair and square. Barr saw no need to look for evidence of voter fraud, now available in the form of Dinesh D’Souza’s 2000 Mules.

The film used cell phone data and government surveillance tapes to document illegal vote harvesting in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Wisconsin, Michigan, and Texas. In Georgia alone, the film reviewed four million minutes of drop-box video. In his deposition for the Democrats, Barr erupted in laughter.

The tracking and photographic evidence was “unimpressive,” Barr said, the documentary “didn’t establish widespread illegal harvesting, and the conclusions of the documentary were “indefensible.” D’Souza called him out.

“What do you say, Barr?” D’Souza tweeted, “Do you dare back up your belly laughs with arguments that can withstand rebuttal and cross-examination?” Barr wasn’t going for it, and the former AG was also of interest for what he did not say.

On January 6, 2021, Capitol Police officer Michal Byrd shot dead unarmed Trump supporter Ashli Babbitt, a veteran of the U.S. Airforce. The shooting of Babbitt was the only death by gunfire on that day. In stark contrast to other shootings by police officers, Byrd faced no charges. Observers might think that a former U.S. Attorney General, the nation’s top law enforcement official, would show some interest in a case like that. When it comes to federal agents shooting unarmed civilians, particularly women, Barr can boast experience.
