Trump Wants a Special Council to Investigate the Election ‘IMMEDIATELY’

President Donald Trump has again sounded a call for the Attorney General to assign a special counsel to investigate allegations of fraud in the 2020 presidential election.

After seeing the massive Voter Fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election, I disagree with anyone that thinks a strong, fast, and fair Special Counsel is not needed, IMMEDIATELY,” the President tweeted on Wednesday. “This was the most corrupt election in the history of our Country, and it must be closely examined!

Attorney General Bill Barr has disagreed with the President over the issue, saying just this week that he sees no reason to assign a special counsel to look into the allegations. Earlier this month, Barr claimed the Justice Department had not discovered any credible evidence of widespread fraud in the presidential election.

To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election,” Barr told the Associated Press.

At the time, Trump responded in an interview with Fox News: “You would think if you’re in the FBI or Department of Justice, this is the biggest thing you could be looking at.”

Wednesday is Barr’s last day as Attorney General following a resignation letter he presented to the President last week. Moving forward, Deputy Attorney General Jeff Rosen will serve as Acting Attorney General.

Trump’s tweet on Wednesday appears to be a new call directed specifically at Rosen.

Rosen has not specified whether he will appoint a special counsel or follow in Barr’s shadow. When questioned about the matter, he said that he would make the decision “on the basis of the law and the facts,” according to a report by Reuters.
