US attorney general William Barr said the Justice department has not uncovered widespread voting fraud in an interview with the Associated Press.
“To date, we have not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election,” Barr told the AP.
Guardian US business editor, Dominic Rushe, has the full report on the $908bn bipartisan economic measures announced this morning.
The measure has not been written into legislation. Nor has it been embraced by the Trump administration, President-elect Joe Biden or leaders in the Senate or House of Representatives, all of whom would be needed for passage.
But it comes with the backing of a group of conservatives and moderates who claim it will appeal to a broad swath of Congress.
Not so much warmth from the White House on this plan.
From @PressSec: “The Trump administration has been in ongoing talks with Leader McConnell and Leader McCarthy about a targeted COVID relief plan. The $908 billion proposal has not been a topic of discussion.” https://t.co/7RaYdJoNxa
