Attorney General Bill Barr told the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday that he has "no reason to think" the 2020 presidential election will be rigged.
Why it matters: President Trump has claimed, without evidence, that widespread mail-in voting amid the coronavirus pandemic would rig the election against him. Barr did add that he believes there is a "high risk" of voter fraud due to "the wholesale conversion of election to mail-in voting."
- Barr also said that he would vacate his position if Trump lost his re-election bid and refused to leave office after a clear defeat.
- He declined to comment on whether Trump would leave office, which the president has said he would do peacefully.
