Allies of the President are calling on the Justice Department to step up efforts to investigate election fraud.
On Wednesday, Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) told One America News that while he’s optimistic the Department of Justice will conduct a thorough review, he’s still a little cynical.
President Trump’s campaign continues to maintain that it has evidence of voter fraud in at least six key states despite recent comments by Attorney General William Barr.
Biggs also noted shortcomings by the Justice Department, which have prompted concerns about its ability to fulfill its duty.
“We’ve expected the Durham report for a year now… and we never got it,” Biggs said. “They’re not out there really busting things to break this thing down to try to resolve some of these issues.”
It’s time for accountability and justice for those who attempted to subvert our Constitution and rule of law. We have been waiting patiently for the Durham findings, but we must have answers, transparency, and a day of reckoning. https://t.co/pjlWDm7OOI

He added that although we’re seeing more specific allegations, affidavits and evidence, there is still no proof that the attorney general is actively investigating these incidents.
Biggs mentioned he hopes the search for evidence of voter fraud continues. He noted that audits would help determine if further remedies are needed.
Meanwhile, political consultant Roger Stone also took aim at Barr, calling him “part of the deep state.”
In a video Tuesday, Stone claimed Barr is blocking the nation’s two-tiered justice system. This came after Barr’s remarks, which claim the Justice Department found no substantial voter fraud thus far.
Stone went on to cite Barr’s failure to prosecute former FBI Director James Comey as well as former Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.
Additionally, Stone criticized the ongoing ‘Durham’ probe by calling it a ploy.
Stone said there is overwhelming and compelling evidence of voter fraud in the election despite Barr’s claims.
