Rep. Michael Cloud penned a letter to Attorney General William Barr that outlines the concern many members of Congress have about the “shocking lack of action” from the Department of Justice.
I appreciated the news that AG Barr had authorized federal prosecutors to pursue substantial allegations of election fraud.

Thirty six members of Congress joined the letter.
Rep. Cloud reminds the DOJ that it is their duty to ensure the right to vote is sacred. He also reminds the DOJ that it is their duty to investigate violence and threats of violence against election officials and citizens involved in the election process.
Cloud says that if there is any ongoing investigative action by the DOJ into the claims of election fraud, they aren't aware of it.
News of Attorney General William Barr saying that they haven't found any widespread evidence of voter fraud that would affect the outcome of the election hit the wires on Tuesday but that directly contradicts what these Congressmen are saying.
“To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election,” Barr told the AP.
That also contradicts what hundreds of witnesses, with sworn affidavits, have testified to in the hearings on election fraud in Arizona and Michigan.
Rep. Cloud spells it out for the DOJ:
"There are a number of anomalies, statistical improbabilities, and accusations of fraud that bring the election results in several states into question. Affidavits of irregularities in to voting and tabulations processes have been sworn in a number of jurisdictions. Threats of retribution by leftist groups with a history of violence have been made against election officials and attorneys for President Trump."
The post-Election Day delay and inaction is particularly suspect after the long-awaited release of the Durham report remains tragically behind schedule. For three years the American people watched as our taxpayer funded Justice Department was weaponized against their duly elected President.
There has been a mountain of evidence provided to the public....but no action.
Unfortunately, too often the American people have seen many of our most powerful institutions corrupted against The People. In the case of alleged election improprieties, justice delayed truly would be justice denied. The American people deserve, and justice demands, action now.
The American people are growing restless as they sit back and watch evidence pour in with little to no action and, even worse, a denial that the evidence they've just seen even exists.
