Several news outlets reported that Trump hosted weirdo dead-enders Sidney Powell and Michael Flynn on Friday, and he considered naming Powell a special counsel to investigate the ghost of Hugo Chavez alleged voter fraud in the 2020 election, of which there has been little to none.
He also listened intently as Michael Flynn, a convicted felon, engaged in small talk about establishing a military junta to overthrow the legitimate government of the United States.
At a news conference to announce charges in a decade old terror case, Barr — who has just two days left in office — was peppered with questions about whether he would consider steps proposed by allies of the president to advance Trump’s claims of massive voter fraud.
Barr said that while he was “sure there was fraud in this election,” he had not seen evidence that it was so “systemic or broad-based” that it would change the result. He asserted he saw “no basis right now for seizing machines by the federal government,” and he would not name a special counsel to explore the allegations of Trump and his allies.
