(RepublicanInformer.com)- Attorney General William Barr isn’t messing around when it comes to the topic of voter fraud. During a segment with CNN anchor Wolf Blitzer, Barr laid down the truth about the possibility of widespread voter fraud as a result of the implementation of universal mail-in voting.
During the segment, Barr explained the difference between absentee ballots and universal mail-in voting and torched Blitzer who seemed oblivious to the problem of voter rolls being massively out of date.
“Wolf, this is sort of cheap talk to get around the fundamental problem, which is the bipartisan commission chaired by Jimmy Carter and James Baker said back in 2009 that mail-in voting is fraught with the risk of fraud and coercion,” he said. When Wolf tried to interrupt him, Barr said, “Let me talk.”
“And since that time, there have been in the newspapers, in networks, academic studies saying it is open to fraud and coercion,” he continued. “The only time the narrative changed is after this administration came in. But elections that have been held with mail have found substantial fraud and coercion. For example, we indicted someone in Texas – 1,700 ballots collected from people who could vote, he made them out and voted for the person he wanted to. That kind of thing happens with mail-in ballots.”
Blitzer, being a representative of CNN, wasn’t having it. He pushed back by saying they havent’ already seen widespread fraud, to which Barr responded that it has not been widespread because the widespread use of mail-in ballots has not yet been implemented before. He also explained the difference between absentee ballots and the current proposals from the Democrats.

“We’ve had absentee ballots from people who request them from a specific address,” he said. “Now what we’re talking about is mailing them to everyone on the voter list, when everyone knows those voter lists are inaccurate.”
You have to see the video to believe it. Blitzer has no response. Barr said that as a result of voter rolls being hugely out of date, people who should get ballot papers won’t get them, and people who have long since left the state will have ballot papers sent to their old properties. He said that people may receive ballots for several generations of occupants at their homes.
“Do you think that’s a way to run a vote?” he asked.
Barr said that it was “playing with fire” and said that while the country is so divided, people need to have confidence that the results of the election are accurate and be confident in the legitimacy of the government.
