Because Bill Barr can't cite any evidence of mail voting fraud he ends up weakly insisting it's "a matter of logic"

Bill Barr on Trump's comments about caravans of antifa boarding planes to fly to DC to riot: "I don't know what the president was referring to." (Note how it takes sustained questioning from Wolf Blitzer to get Barr to acknowledge this.)

NBC News’ Kristen Welker, Fox News’ Chris Wallace and C-SPAN’s Steve Scully will moderate the three scheduled presidential debates.

The Russians and the Internet Research Agency are attacking the election to help @realdonaldtrump. Again. But a treasonous President too chickenshit to even confront Putin over paying bounties for the murder of American soldiers sure as hell won't push back on this one. Vote.
