Garland’s remarks echo a common refrain that stolen-election fears are a ‘debunked conspiracy theory’ on the grounds that legal challenges to the election results failed in court. U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland warned Friday that the Justice Department will be “scrutinizing” the states currently undertaking audits of the 2020 presidential election, hinting that the Biden administration intends to punish states for looking too closely at President Joe Biden’s victory last fall, as well as states that have enacted new safeguards for election integrity in the months since. “Many of the justifications proffered in support of these post-election audits and restrictions on voting have relied on assertions of material vote fraud in the 2020 election that have been refuted by the law enforcement and intelligence agencies of both this administration and the previous one, as well as by every court – federal and state – that has considered them,” Garland claimed, ABC News reports. The Biden Justice Department will be “scrutinizing new laws that seek to curb voter access,” and “where we see violations of federal law, we will not hesitate to act,” he declared.
