Donald Trump told the CPAC crowd in Texas that the US Attorney in Pennsylvania sent the 45th president a letter recently, where he claimed former AG Bill Barr told him not to investigate the crimes and corruption that occurred in the 2020 Election in that state.
“On Election Day and afterwards, our Office received various allegations of voter fraud and election irregularities,” the letter said.
“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. 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 wrote that he “disagreed with that decision” but noted he was a Marine infantry officer, so he would follow orders from his superior even if he did not agree with them.
“U.S. Attorney from the Eastern District of Pennsylvania was precluded from investigating election fraud allegations. Outrageous!” Trump said in a statement of his own.
