President Donald Trump said Thursday he is disappointed in Attorney General Bill Barr for saying that the Justice Department had no uncovered evidence of widespread fraud in the 2020 election.
Trump pushed back the comments that Barr made in an interview with the Associated Press earlier this week, which represented a break with the president's own unsubstantiated claims about fraud in the election.
"He hasn't done anything, so he hasn't looked. When he looks he'll see the kind of evidence that right now you are seeing in the Georgia senate. They are going through hearings right now in Georgia and they are finding tremendous volumes," Trump told reporters in the Oval Office. "So, they haven't looked very hard. Which is a disappointment, to be honest with you, because it's massive fraud."
Trump also declined to offer a vote of confidence in Barr when asked.
"Ask me that in a number of weeks from now. They should be looking at all of this fraud," Trump said. "This is not civil. He thought it was civil. This is not civil. This is criminal stuff. This is very bad criminal stuff."
Trump made the comments to reporters during a ceremony in the Oval Office during which he awarded famed former football coach Lou Holtz the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Barr said in an interview with the AP published Tuesday that the Justice Department has uncovered no evidence of widespread voter fraud that would change the result of the presidential election.
