Ron Johnson Urges Barr To ‘Show Everybody’ His Evidence That Disproves Trump’s Claims of Voter Fraud

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) is calling on Attorney General William Barr to present his evidence to disprove allegations of widespread voter fraud in the election.

Speaking to CNN’s Manu Raju on Tuesday, Johnson said Barr should “show everybody” his evidence because he claimed there are “enough suspicions” and “irregularities.”

“I think there is still enough questions outstanding,” he added.

Barr told the Associated Press in an interview earlier on Tuesday, “To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election.”

“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,” he added.

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) also weighed in on Barr’s comments, “I have a lot of confidence in him, and if they haven’t found anything yet that tells me that one they’ve looked, they haven’t found anything. And if there’s other things to look at I’m sure they will.”

“I think he should be specific about his claims. I think if dead people are voting, what state and how many,” he added.

Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas) said he trusts Barr’s assessment.

President Donald Trump has refused to concede the election to President-elect Joe Biden. And he has continued to allege without evidence that there was widespread fraud in the election.

Trump’s legal team responded to Barr’s comments in a statement, “With all due respect to the Attorney General, there hasn’t been any semblance of a Department of Justice investigation. We have gathered ample evidence of illegal voting in at least six states, which they have not examined.”

“We have many witnesses swearing under oath they saw crimes being committed in connection with voter fraud. As far as we know, not a single one has been interviewed by the DOJ. The Justice Department also hasn’t audited any voting machines or used their subpoena powers to determine the truth,” the statement went on.

While Republican senators voiced their support for Barr, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said, “I guess he’s the next one to be fired, since he now too says there’s no fraud. Trump seems to fire anyone in that regard.”

Responses

  1. Ron Johnson is one of the typical American Fascist Party cowards who PUBLICLY supports King Donald The Loser because he doesn’t want Cult-45 to lynch him, but PRIVATELY admits that His Majesty lost the election, of course, AND that he is royally nuts.

  2. “Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.) is calling on Attorney General William Barr to present his evidence to disprove allegations of widespread voter fraud in the election.” (article)

    Well, the evidence of “widespread voter fraud in the election” is non-existence as presented in the courts by Trump’s crackerjack legal team. If the legal team is only charging “widespread voter fraud in the election” in press conferences BUT NOT in court, there is NO EVIDENCE TO DISPROVE.

    If it helps them feel better, Trump followers should send their money to the “Save America” PAC set up to assist Trump in financing his life after politics.

    The rest of the country should consider donating to a fund for the mental health services of the voters of Wisconsin that twice elected Ron Johnson to the U.S. Senate. One week Johnson perceives himself to be a public health expert, the next week a legal expert. He has training in neither and it is evident.
