WASHINGTON, D.C.—Several Trump’s Administration appointee have left the administration. Richard Pilger, who was director of the Election Crimes Branch of the DOJ, and Defense Secretary Mark Esper’s prematurely letter of resignation was accepted via a tweet. Esper sided with Democratic Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s plan to remove heroes names off military bases.
Pilger resigned after Attorney General William Barr sent a memo to the Department of Justice legal team to investigate allegations of widespread voter fraud in some battleground states. And “to pursue substantial allegations of voting and vote tabulation irregularities prior to the certification of elections.”
“Having familiarized myself with the new policy and its ramifications, and in accord with the best tradition of the John C. Keeney Award for Exceptional Integrity and Professionalism (my most cherished Departmental recognition), I must regretfully resign from my role as Director of the Election Crimes Branch,” Pilger’s letter said.
“Such a passive and delayed enforcement approach can result in situations in which election misconduct cannot realistically be rectified,” Barr said in the memo. Barr’s memo authorizes local U.S. attorneys to investigate if they learn of “clear and apparently-credible allegations of irregularities that, if true, could potentially impact the outcome of a federal election in an individual State.”
Barr added , “While serious allegations should be handled with great care, specious, speculative, fanciful or far-fetched claims should not be a basis for initiating federal inquiries. Nothing here should be taken as an indication that the Department has concluded that voting irregularities have impacted the outcome of any election.”
According to Barr’s statement, he was not or directed by the President Donald J. Trump, or any lawmaker, or anyone in the White House to issue his memo to federal prosecutors. Barr, however, met with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., earlier Monday, but he did not respond to reporters questions.
Barr’s letter to criminal prosecutors is a change at DOJ. The agency normally would remain quite until after the States certification of the President-Elect, but this year there have not been an official winner declared by the States. But the news media have gotten behind Joe Biden—and declared Biden the President-elect without any federal or state authority.
The mainstream media continues to ignore the Republican’s allegations of widespread voter fraud in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Georgia, Nevada and Arizona. The mainstream continues to ignore the fact that the Country is entitled to a fair and honest election—no matter who prevails as the winner.
Trump and his campaign lawyers have held news conferences and filed lawsuits alleging widespread fraud and the President refused to concede defeat to Biden.
AG Barr took an oath to serve and to protect the US Constitution and the people of the Nation. Investigating voter fraud is just another crime that DOJ is obligated to investigate.
