William Barr is increasingly being proven to be a wolf in sheep’s clothing. The latest example of him betraying President Trump comes from a former U.S. Attorney in Pennsylvania, who sent President Trump a letter claiming that Barr blocked an election investigation in his state.
Former U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania, William McSwain, told the President that Barr had asked him not to make the public aware of any “election irregularities.” McSwain told the President he “disagreed with that decision,” but that he was just following orders:
“On Election Day and afterwards, our Office received various allegations of voter fraud and election irregularities,” McSwain’s letter tells President Trump. “As part of my responsibilities as U.S. Attorney, I wanted to be transparent with the public and, of course, investigate fully any allegations.”
” Attorney General Barr, however, instructed me not to make any public statements or put out any press releases regarding possible election irregularities,” the letter says. “I was also given a directive to pass along serious allegations to the State Attorney General for investigation – the same State Attorney General who had already declared that you could not win.”
McSwain has definitely prosecuted — and won — election fraud cases in his state related to the 2020 election. But his orders from Barr were to not talk about them. Seems a strange order from the Attorney General, but it’s understandable when one considers that Barr has always been corrupt.
Barr is just another reminder that swamp creatures still persist in government despite Trump’s best efforts to get rid of them. Remember that when voting in 2022 and 2024.
