“Disputing President Donald Trump’s persistent, baseless claims, Attorney General William Barr declared Tuesday the U.S. Justice Department has uncovered no evidence of widespread voter fraud that could change the outcome of the 2020 election.” Barr: “To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have effected a different outcome in the election.”

+ So what was the reaction of the base and Trump’s media sycophants when a guy who has bent and nearly broke the Justice Department in the name of protecting his corrupt boss and previously jail bound friends told the obvious truth? Oh, you know. They’re ripping him to shreds.

+ In other news from the crime blotter, Trump is pondering preemptively pardoning his kids before leaving office. (Jared, Ivanka, and Don Jr for crimes, Eric, for being Eric.) Trump has raised $170 million for an election defense fund that’s really raising money for a PAC (hey, having the severely duped write you checks is great work if you can get it), and is already making noise about a 2024 run. “It’s been an amazing four years. We are trying to do another four years. Otherwise, I’ll see you in four years.” (Prediction: More fore! Less four.) And the Justice Department is investigating a possible bribery-for-pardon scheme. Individual One not done?
