WATCH: Bill Barr Says He Doesn’t Know If Voting Twice Is Illegal
CNN’s Wolf Blitzer asked Attorney General William Barr about President Donald Trump’s remarks in North Carolina that people should mail in a ballot and then try to vote at the polls in November — a move that would be illegal.
Barr responded that he was unsure if Trump had suggested anyone break the law.
“It sounds like he’s encouraging people to break the law and try to vote twice,” Blitzer said.
The attorney general initially responded by saying Trump was trying to highlight that “the ability to monitor the system is not good” and if it were, people would be caught if they tried to vote a second time.
“That would be illegal if they did that,” Blitzer pressed.
“I don’t know what the law in the particular state says,” Barr responded.
“Is there any state that says you can vote twice?” Blitzer asked, to which Barr responded he was unsure if in some states a vote can be changed up until a particular time.
