NOT EVEN WILLIAM BARR BUYS TRUMP’S ELECTION NONSENSE

PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP is running out of wrenches to throw at the gears of democracy. 

Since prematurely and incorrectly declaring victory on the night of the election, Trump and his legal team have launched dozens of lawsuits seeking to overturn the results of the presidential race in pivotal states like Nevada, Michigan, and Pennsylvania. They have lost nearly all of them. The few court victories they have notched, meanwhile, have been immaterial to the outcome of the race. Now, US attorney general William Barr has foreclosed another potential avenue of attack, shutting down Trump’s election conspiracy theories in an interview with the Associated Press.
