US election: Republican congressmen say Trump has not lost out
Top Republican congressmen have maintained their support for the United States President Donald Trump on the 2020 presidential election.
The US presidential election was majorly a battle between the incumbent President and candidate of the Republican Party, Donald Trump and Joe Biden of the Democratic Party.
Although the winner of the election has not been officially declared, the media on Saturday projected Joe Biden as the President-elect after he scored over 270 electoral college votes.
However, President Donald Trump has rejected the result citing massive irregularities and election fraud in key battleground states where he believes he was leading.
Prominent Republicans congressmen had earlier urged Trump to “fight hard” and not concede defeat in the race.
The lawmakers said the President’s allegation of election fraud and irregularities must be investigated.
The top Republican congressmen said they will work with the Democratic Party government if Biden wins, but insisted that Trump did not lose.
Meanwhile, US Attorney General, William Barr has authorized the Justice Department (DOJ) to look into the claims of voting irregularities made by incumbent President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election.
The Attorney General made the authorization in a memo he signed on Monday and addressed to U.S. Attorneys; the assistant attorneys general for the DOJ’s criminal division; civil rights division; the national security division; and the director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Christopher Wray.
“Now that the voting has concluded, it is imperative that the American people can trust that our elections were conducted in such a way that the outcomes accurately reflect the will of the voters,” the memo read.
Recall that 39 House Republicans had sent a letter to the Attorney General pressing him to allow available DOJ resources to look into allegations of voting irregularities across the country in several key states.
