Phil Shiver reports at The Blaze that 27 Republican representatives have sent a letter to President Trump asking him to order AG Bill Barr to open an investigation into election “irregularities.” Shiver writes (abridged):
In the letter, which was first obtained by Politico, the group of lawmakers argue that “the American people deserve a definitive resolution to the uncertainty hovering over the outcome of our election,” but protest that “legitimate questions of voter fraud remain unanswered.”
“The Department of Justice has been asked on multiple occasions to launch an investigation into this matter, but inaction from the Department along with public comments made by the Attorney General indicate a lack of willingness to investigate the irregularities your campaign and other elected officials across the nation have alleged,” the letter reads.
“The appointment of a Special Counsel would establish a team of investigators whose sole responsibility is to uncover the truth and provide the certainty America needs,” it continues. “We urge you to take swift and decisive action and direct Attorney General Barr to appoint a Special Counsel to restore the American people’s faith in our elections.”
The group, led by Rep. Lance Gooden (R-Texas), includes several prominent conservatives, such as Reps. Paul Gosar (R-Ariz.), Louie Gohmert (R-Texas), Thomas Massie (R-Ky.), and Jody Hice (R-Ga.).
