President Donald Trump took to Twitter last night to say that a special counsel is needed IMMEDIATELY to investigate the “corrupt” presidential election.
“After seeing the massive Voter Fraud in the 2020 Presidential Election, I disagree with anyone that thinks a strong, fast, and fair Special Counsel is not needed, IMMEDIATELY,” Trump tweeted. “This was the most corrupt election in the history of our Country, and it must be closely examined!”
President Donald Trump has so far refused to accept that Joe Biden won the election fair and square and has continued to insist that the election was “rigged” with widespread voter fraud in key swing states.
After a White House meeting Friday in which potentially appointing attorney Sidney Powell to such a post was discussed, the president reportedly told Powell he would not appoint her to the position.
Attorney General Bill Barr on Monday stated that he had no plans to appoint a special counsel either to investigate Hunter Biden’s business dealings or to look into potential election fraud.
Barr’s replacement, Jeffrey Rosen, has not yet specified whether he would appoint a special counsel, but he told Reuters in an interview that he would make such decisions “on the basis of the law and the facts.”
