(AmericanPoliticalDaily.com)- Legendary political consultant Roger Stone, an early campaigner adviser for President Donald Trump, accused Attorney General William Barr on Tuesday of “blocking for the deep state” after media reports misrepresented comments he made about election fraud.
Following an interview with the Associated Press, in which Barr said that the Department of Justice had not yet found evidence of widespread voter fraud, several mainstream media outlets inaccurately claimed that Barr has concluded his investigation.
In a video published to Parler, the free speech platform typically used to replace Twitter, Stone described how America has a “two-tiered justice system.” Stone has reason to be angry, too, having been accused of committing a crime during the Russiagate investigations before his prison sentence was commuted by President Donald Trump.
“No, we have a two-tiered justice system and Bill Barr’s job is to block for the deep state,” Stone said in the video. “Which is why the Durham ploy was quite clever. Mr Durham has taken three years to produce nothing whatsoever when he has overwhelming evidence of both treason and crime.”
Stone’s comments appeared to be referencing the Democrat smear campaign against the president, alleging that he and campaign officials had conspired with Russia to win the 2016 election.
Stone went on to say John Durham’s job is to “bury all of it after the election,” talking about the American lawyer appointed by William Barr to investigate the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation.

“Bill Barr you get what you expected,” Stone added.
Stone may be glad to have learned, however, that the Department of Justice corrected the record after mainstream outlets misrepresented what Barr said.
A spokesperson for the Department said that “some media outlets have incorrectly reported that the Department has concluded its investigation of election fraud and announced an affirmative finding of no fraud in the election.”
“That is not what the Associated Press reported nor what the Attorney General states,” the spokesperson continued. “The Department will continue to receive and vigorously pursue all specific and credible allegations of fraud expeditiously as possible.”

The Department of Justice will undoubtedly be watching as evidentiary hearings continue in battleground states. Hearings have taken place in Arizona, Pennsylvania and Michigan within the last two weeks. Dozens of witnesses have provided testimony of fraud and misconduct that they witnessed during the counting of ballots.
Few mainstream media outlets, if any, have corrected their false reports about what William Barr said.
