Barr authorizes DOJ, FBI to look into election issues

BreitbartAttorney General William Barr in a memo issued on Monday authorized the Justice Department (DOJ) to look into voting irregularities in the 2020 presidential election.

The memo was addressed and signed from Barr to U.S. Attorneys, the assistant attorneys general for the DOJ’s criminal division, civil rights division, the national security division, and the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Christopher Wray.

At this point, I have no faith in any investigations Barr authorizes. He has till January 20th to change my mind. However, shipwreckedcrew (who has worked as a US Attorney) thinks Barr's letter actually authorized field offices to start full grand jury investigations on voter fraud without going through DOJ HQ.

Why would that matter?

Well, the person in charge of vote fraud investigations at DOJ resigned in response to that letter.

He was allegedly involved in the IRS Tea Party targeting scandal. And if he's going to refuse to get involved in investigating serious allegations of irregularities in elections when that's his job, then he's undoubtedly a NeverTrump Resistance type who is better off out than in.

And he was probably blocking investigations from being opened, which Barr's letter prevented him from doing. Hence he resigned in a snit. And, maybe, the various field offices are now unleashed to pursue vote fraud?
