Barr’s January 6 committee testimony causes election monitoring group to backtrack
Former U.S. Attorney General William Barr backed the January 6 Committee’s argument that the 2020 presidential election was “the safest in history.”
He also did his best to debunk Donald Trump’s claim that the 2020 election was stolen from him.
Barr, a Republican Trump appointee, testified in a pre-recorded deposition broadcast nationwide on June 13.
He told the committee he had seen no evidence of voter fraud on a scale that could have affected the outcome of the presidential election.
Documentary filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza couldn’t disagree more.
D’Souza’s last film, 2000 slipperscontains detailed evidence of an organized system of illegal vote-collecting operated in Democratic-dominated cities in key states in the weeks leading up to the 2020 election – a crime that many voters and the Trump campaign want to investigate independently to determine if the result could have been changed.
Working with True the Vote, a public interest election monitoring organization, D’Souza and a team of investigators purchased 10 trillion cellphone pings (unique identity signals) to piece together the traffickers’ movements of presumptive ballots.
The states included in the study were Georgia, Pennsylvania, Arizona, Wisconsin, Michigan and Texas.
The group also obtained and reviewed thousands of hours of government surveillance tape of drop boxes where the suspected traffickers, whom they called “mules,” could be seen repeatedly dropping multiple ballots.
Four million minutes of drop box video have been reviewed in Georgia alone.
The painstaking and expensive 15-month study was funded by donations from human rights organization First Freedoms.
The video review was part of the process the group used — along with personal interviews with traffickers and information from tipsters — to estimate the number of fraudulent mail-in ballots that were likely dropped into drop boxes.
True the Vote cyber expert Gregg Phillips estimates that 4.8 million votes were tampered with nationwide in 2020.
During his deposition, Barr burst out laughing as he mentioned 2000 slippers.
Barr said the cellphone tracking investigation and photographic evidence from the film were “unimpressive” and that his findings were “indefensible”.
According to Barr, the documentary “did not establish widespread illegal harvesting”.
True the Vote spokeswoman Catherine Engelbrecht told The Epoch Times, “Over 80 percent of Americans are concerned about the integrity of elections.
“Bill Barr took cheap shots with his beltway buddies, but America isn’t laughing.”
Engelbrecht said the Justice Department under Barr did very little to investigate the 2020 voter fraud.
“Instead, he mocked President Trump and ignored nationwide pleas for help.
“Now he supports the January 6 Committee and their use of cellphone data – so reliable they are rushing to jail Americans without trial.
“Yet when the same data is used to expose patterns of drop box abuse and voter fraud, he is completely disinterested,” Engelbrecht said.
On Twitter, D’Souza challenged Barr to a public debate on voter fraud, writing, “What do you say, Barr? Do you dare back up your giggles with arguments that stand up to rebuttal and cross-examination? »
Engelbrecht told The Epoch Times, “We were not asked to present our findings to the committee, nor will we be. They will never risk giving us that platform.
“Their interest is not to discover the truth. It never was.
D’Souza told The Epoch Times, “The hearings are one-sided propaganda, not an attempt to find out the truth.
He repeatedly asserted that the evidence presented in 2000 slippers is “indisputable” and invites people to judge for themselves.
Former President Donald Trump responded quickly to the June 13 hearing, issuing a 12-page rebuttal.
Trump wrote that Democrats are “desperate to change the narrative of a failed nation… They own this disaster. They hope these hearings will somehow change their prospects for failure.
Robert Gelt, a popular conservative activist from Michigan, told The Epoch Times, “Jan. 6 would never have happened had it not been for the adamant refusal of our federal government‘s chief law enforcement officer, Bill Barr, to involve the Department of Justice in the investigation of the November 3, 2020 election.”
