Barr Says “Investigate,” Attorney Says “I Quit”

The outright theft of the 2020 election is far more likely than Russian collusion ever was. Yet, many of the “powers-that-be” prefer to turn a blind eye.

That’s exactly what happened at the DOJ when Attorney General William Barr decided voter fraud must be investigated before it can be dismissed.

Whether these claims of fraud can be substantiated or not, it’s disheartening to see a high ranking member of the Department of Justice completely disregard the pursuit of fairness.

The attorney in question is Richard Pilger. And the line between Pilger and toxic leftism is easy to trace. Richard Pilger was appointed by Eric Holder to oversee voter-fraud probes. And as we all know, Holder was Obama’s AG. He spearheaded Democrat redistricting in 2016. It’s no wonder he doesn’t want to open the can of beans labeled “voter fraud.”

Thus, Pilger “quit in protest, hours after Attorney General William Barr authorized the Justice Department to investigate any “substantial allegations” of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.”

BPR elaborates:

“Having familiarized myself with the new policy and its ramifications… I must regretfully resign from my role as director of the Election Crimes Branch,” Pilger said in an email. Pilger reportedly still works at the Department of Justice. He just will no longer oversee its election-fraud unit.

Predictably, the mainstream media tried to spin Pilger’s resignation to push an anti-Trump narrative.

Attorney Harmeet Dillon said she’s not surprised that Pilger noisily stepped down, and told her Twitter followers that Pilger is a left-wing activist and part of the entrenched “Deep State swamp.”

Dillon tweeted: “It’s disgraceful that this biased lawyer — who colluded with Obama IRS chief Lois Lerner to persecute Tea Party groups and who refused to testify under oath in Congress in 2014 — was still in charge of the elections unit in the DOJ.”

“This is Richard Pilger, the official who stepped down over Barr’s memo. Appointed by Obama AG Eric Holder.”

Considering Pilger’s obvious allegiance, he did us a favor stepping-down.

It’s a fundamental quest to make sure every legal ballot is counted, only once, and every illegal ballot is discarded. Those are the rules. If leftists are unhappy with the rules, they need to introduce legislation to change them. Then, such legislation must be debated, deliberated, and voted upon.

However, leftists play by different rules. Thus, they aim to change the rules whenever it best serves their own agenda.

Pilger’s history is a perfect example.

Dillon wrote: “Pilger, when subpoenaed to Capitol Hill by House Oversight [chairman] Darrell Issa in 2014, refused to answer over three dozen questions under oath on the advice of DOJ attorneys.

She remarked: “HE’s supposed to be controlling the prosecution of election fraud in this election? The guy accused of conspiring with Lois Lerner to criminalize conservative speech? The government is full of survivors like this. They burrow in, lurk, and like submarines they surface to survey, then dive & fire torpedoes. And you never know what hit you. DOJ civil rights ans election integrity have been MIA in this election.”

In other words, Pilger’s a swamp-dweller. Obviously, this is exactly the kind of guy Trump works to eradicate from our highest offices. And while there are plenty of leftists who don’t want to get to the truth, there are at least 71 million Americans demanding we verify the numbers before we move on.

After four years of bogus investigations, spying, an attempted coup, impeachment and sabotage, I don’t think a recount is too much to ask.
