President Donald Trump’s longtime ally Roger Stone accused Attorney General William Barr of “blocking for the deep state” because he asserted he’d not yet found evidence of widespread voter fraud.
In a video message posted to the social media platform Parler, Stone — whose prison sentence was commuted by Trump in July — declared there’s a “two-tiered justice system” in America.
“No, we have a two-tiered justice system and Bill Barr’s job is to block for the deep state,” Stone declared.
“Which is why the Durham ploy was quite clever, [U.S. Attorney] Mr. [John] Durham has taken three years to produce nothing whatsoever when he has overwhelming evidence of both treason and crime,” he claimed.
“And now Mr. Durham’s job is to bury all of it after the election.
“Bill Barr you get what you expected,” Stone said.
The Stone comments were widely shared on Twitter and posted by Mediaite.
Barr, in a statement to the Associated Press, noted the Justice Department investigation of voter fraud was not yet completed, though “to date, we have not seen” evidence of fraud that would change the outcome of the 2020 election.
On Wednesday, the Justice Department doubled down, reiterating it has not concluded its investigation of possible election fraud — and vowing to pursue all credible allegations.
Meanwhile, Durham’s probe into how the FBI’S Russia probe got started is reportedly moving “full steam ahead.” Durham was appointed by Barr last year.
