“To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election,” the news service quoted Barr as saying.
Despite that, Trump has continued to claim loudly and without evidence that the election was marred by widespread fraud, claims that have been repeatedly rejected by state and federal officials.
Most of the lawsuits have been rejected by judges, who have expressed skepticism about the claim that the election results are illegitimate.
