Bill Barr destroys mail-in voting arguments in tense CNN interview

Attorney General Bill Barr sat for an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on Wednesday, and in the process unleashed fury on the Democrat-propagated myth that voting by mail is safe and secure.

Barr warned during the interview that those “trying to change the rules” of how US elections are conducted are “playing with fire.”

The Democrat party — both progressive and establishment — is united over the recent push to implement vote-by-mail processes for the November election, using concerns about COVID-19 as an excuse. However, Barr pointed out that prior to Donald Trump’s presidency, both Democrats and Republicans agreed that voting by mail was fraught with dangers and potential for fraud.

Barr reminded Blitzer of an authoritative and bipartisan report released in 2005 by the Commission on Election Reform, chaired by former President Jimmy Carter and former Secretary of State James Baker, who declared at the time that vote by mail is “likely to increase the risks of fraud and of contested elections.”

“We’re a very closely divided country here, and people have to have confidence in the legitimacy of the government,” Barr explained. “People trying to change the rules to this methodology, which as a matter of logic is very open to fraud and coercion, is reckless and dangerous, and people are playing with fire.”

Democrats have couched advocacy for mail-in ballots in terms of the risk posed by going to physical polling locations in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, a point that Blitzer highlighted.

Blitzer did not happen to mention that both Dr. Anthony Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx, the nation’s top infectious disease experts — who are often cited as the ultimate authority on all things COVID-19 by the mainstream media — both said in August that there is no reason American’s can’t safely vote in person.

In August, Fauci likened voting in person to standing in line at the grocery store, something most Americans have been doing safely with extra precautions in place since the beginning of the pandemic.

  1. Hooray for Bill Barr getting in the face of FAKE NEWS & telling the truth! I am voting in person and I did get a ballot in the mail but since I’m voting for our great president I want to make sure they don’t throw my ballot away! Thank God there are real Americans ready to stand for a legal election!

    1. AMEN, Judy. Anyone who can go to Wally World and spend 10 min or so standing in line waiting for a cashier to check you out, can certainly go and vote. Absentee ballots are one thing, but “mail-in” votes just opens the door for voter fraud and a greatly contested election in November, and possibly a second Civil War.

      1. Democrats have been trying to dictate over congress and our lives for decades and the laws are not being upheld to keep them under control.they have turned into a communist party and they need shut down and many sent to prison .till then american will have a cancer for decades to come..now they are trying to steal the election with mail in voter fraud..if they get away with it because the DOJ cant do their job .american will revolt and BLM will look like a summer of love alright…vote in person..Trump2020

        1. All the Democrat Communist Fascists have to do is keep the presidential winner undeclared by some certain earlier dates or January 20, Democrats will win the Presidential election unless Republicans take a big stake in the House & Senate.

          IMHAO, at a minimum, Democrats will create chaos in voting; at worst, they will cheat their way to win in most elections, including important House & Senate races & the WH.

          IMAGINE Kameltoes, Piglosi or AOC & Chuck the Schmuck as our top leaders, w/extreme cabinet members like Elizabeth Warren heading Treasury & John Kerry back on State & Omar or AOC heading Dept. Of Energy.

          If that doesn’t scare the F*** out of you, then you’re a Democrat Communist Fascist.

      2. That’s what im ready for, civil war. Be the best time to purge the blm, antifa and the trash in America.. Btw, thanks for your service…

    2. If you can stand in line to “honor” someone like John Lewis, you can stand in line to vote.
      If you can stand out in a crowd to riot, you can stand in line to vote.
      If you can stand in line in a store, you can stand in line to vote.

      I can’t see any reason not to vote in person – preferably with voter ID.

  2. The democrat party move to allow mail in voting is absurd and patently supports voting fraud. Our local mail is just ok, not good enough to rely on for voting. Their recent approach to all voting issues has become self promoting and against the philosophy of our Constitution.

      1. Cokorado got invaded by California yuppies 15-20 yrs. ago because housing prices were so low compared to California. Unfortunately, they brought their stinkin” Communist views with them.

        The entire Colorado west of the Rockies is still Red. Denver, Boulder & much of Ft. Collins outnumber the Conservatives in the entire state.

        Still. We’ve managed to keep the Tabor Act in effect & the homeless from having tent cities wherever they want.

    1. We have mail in voting in Washington state, too, which gives the DemocRats a huge boost, and pretty much explains how Insley got into office.

  3. Volunteer the Demicruds to handle and pick up and carry the X-tra heavy sacks of mail, that they caused to happen. Let them carry their own burdens!

  4. Itss happening as I write in California. Right NOW! TAKE NOTICE!!! And INVESTIGATE, a friend of mine dd not want to mail in and when said so , she was told that was the only way to vote in thaat state. Then she called another office to request an absentee and no one EVER answered. The ballots were mailed with personal info already written in.!!!! This is too much. Will someone please Alert the Right wing radio shows, Fox, and people like Rush Limbaugh, Bngino, Maarc Levin, Glenn Beck. Etc. I would, but I am out of the country at this time.
    ALERT AMERICA SPEAK OUt and LOUD!

  5. If Pelosi can go get her hair done, why can’t she show up to vote in person???
    Did you just LOVE the way she accepted responsibility for her own actions as a entitled rich “Bit..?
    Democrats are first in line to tell YOU how to act, and then Immediately do whatever is convenient for themselves… after all; they are the Elite!

  6. YEP deleted again Truth hurts. CA cannot vote in person it has been DEEMED, by the newscum and piggy! Virus ya know…………..

  7. Bill Barr is tough and smart. Blitzer, eh. not so much. Stop the illicit mail in voting and vote at the polls in person. In person or absentee is the only sensible and reasonable way to be accountable.

  8. We have mail in voting in Washington state, too, which gives the DemocRats a huge boost, and pretty much explains how Insley got into office.

  9. i had a visit from the census taker today, i had already sent in two census forms that they say they never got, so the sent a census taker to my house for the information. if they can not get 2 different census forms through the mail, how in the hell do they think they will every get all of the mail in ballets for the election,

  10. VOTE in person ONLY. The Democrat’s are already saying that PRESIDENT Trump will win on Election night, but that after the Mail in Votes BIDEN will be the winner!! Sounds like THEY have a PLAN and IT’S to steal the Whitehouse through CHEATING!!!!!!

  11. What POTUS said was they should mail in the vote AND TRACK IT to see if it was ever counted. If not, THEN vote in person.

  12. The demonrats in this country are the reason the country is shutdown… to force cheat by mail. They have done it before and they plan on doing it again this year.

  13. All the Democrat Communist Fascists have to do is keep the presidential winner undeclared by some certain earlier dates or January 20, Democrats will win the Presidential election unless Republicans take a big stake in the House & Senate.

    IMHAO, at a minimum, Democrats will create chaos in voting; at worst, they will cheat their way to win in most elections, including important House & Senate races & the WH.
