AG Barr Greenlights Voter Fraud Investigations Despite Lack Of Evidence, Biden Speaks On COVID-19

Attorney General William Barr has authorized prosecutors to investigate claims of voter fraud in the 2020 election despite a lack of evidence. The memo does not claim that fraud took place, but a DOJ official who oversees voting crimes stepped down in protest of Barr’s memo.

Georgia Republicans, citing unsubstantiated claims of election irregularities, have called on Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, also a Republican, to resign. Meanwhile, President-elect Joe Biden is moving forward with his transition plans.

NPR’s White House correspondent Tamara Keith brings us the latest on the transfer of power.
