39 House Republicans Ask Bill Barr to Ensure Integrity of Voting and Counting Process


    More than three dozen House Republicans, including House Freedom Caucus Chairman Andy Biggs (R-AZ), penned a letter Friday to Attorney General William Barr asking him what he is doing to ensure the integrity of the 2020 presidential election amid allegations of irregularities.

    “While each state runs its own election process, the United States Department of Justice is ultimately responsible for the integrity of federal elections. The American people must have the utmost confidence that the outcome of the presidential election is legitimate,” the letter said.

    Rep. Jim Banks (R-IN), a staunch Trump administration ally, tweeted about the letter on Saturday:

    The lawmakers said it was time for Barr to use the resources of the Justice Department to make sure the election and vote counting process is conducted in a manner that is fully consistent with state and federal law.

    “It is also important that the process be completely transparent, so that the American people will have full confidence in the result,” they said.
