Rep. Biggs to AG Barr: How do you know there was no voter fraud if you didn’t investigate it?

House Freedom Caucus Chairman Rep. Andy Biggs, R-AZ, slammed Attorney General William Barr on Monday’s episode of “The Sara Carter Show” for suggesting there was no widespread voter fraud in the 2020 election while showing no evidence of an investigation into claims of such fraud.

Barr told the Associated Press earlier this month that the Justice Department was conducting an investigation, but claimed that “to date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

The Freedom Caucus last week wrote a letter to Barr asking him for evidence of his investigation, but Biggs says that evidence hasn’t yet been provided.

“If you didn’t investigate, then you wouldn’t know if there’s fraud or not,” Biggs told Carter of Barr. “But I’m disgusted. He’s named Durham, to be special counsel, ostensibly, so he can keep investigating in a Biden era.”

In his home state of Arizona, Biggs says the proper way to restore election integrity is to conduct an audit of the 2020 election. That will need to be directed by either Governor Doug Ducey, who will need the support of the state legislature, or the board of supervisors, Biggs noted.

“All’s the governor has to do is either bring legislature in and they can vote to have an audit, or the board of supervisors can order an audit, or the governor could issue an executive order and what would an audit do a forensic audit? He would either say that what the governor has been saying is right, that we had a wonderful election, there was no fraud, every legal ballot was counted and no illegal ballots were counted,” Biggs explaned.

“That’s what it would show he’d be a hero for that. Or he would say look, you know, we did find some a systemic problem. We did find enough balance to bring this into question and, and then you could pursue the remedy. He’d be a hero for that. You can’t lose. So why won’t he do it?”

Biggs also emphasized that despite hundreds of affidavits, many state leaders have gone on the “defensive” to prevent any such investigations.

Rittenhouse

After three and a half days of deliberation, the jury acquitted Kyle Rittenhouse on all counts. “Jurors in the polarizing case said they had voted to acquit Rittenhouse, 18, of homicide, attempted homicide and other charges related to the August 2020 shootings in Kenosha, Wisconsin” reports The Washington Post.

Rittenhouse testified during the trial during which he  became so emotional he was unable to speak in between sobs as he attempted to describe the shootings. The judge called a brief recess for Rittenhouse to regain composure.

“I didn’t do anything wrong,” Rittenhouse said on the stand. “I defended myself.”

National Review reports “As the verdict was announced, Rittenhouse, overwhelmed with emotion, burst into tears and dropped to the ground, struggling to breathe. After collecting himself, he embraced the defense counsel who represented him throughout the trial.”

Rittenhouse, who was 17 at the time, shot and killed Joseph Rosenbaum, 36, and Anthony Huber, 26, and injured Gaige Grosskreutz, who was 26 at the time. Rittenhouse testified that he fired in self-defense and pleaded not guilty to all counts.

National Review reports:

“Rittenhouse was arrested on August 26, 2020, after shooting three people during the riots that followed the police killing of Jacob Blake, a black man who was brandishing a knife and in the process of violating a restraining order when police arrived on scene.

He was initially indicted on charges of first-degree intentional homicide, first-degree reckless homicide, attempted first-degree intentional reckless homicide, failure to comply with an emergency order from a local government, and possession of a dangerous weapon.”
