Attorney General Bill Barr accused Democrats of encouraging mob violence in US cities as he railed against mail-in voting and mocked the idea that Trump will 'seize power and all that s**t' if he loses in November.
In a wide-ranging interview with WGN radio aired Monday, Barr claimed that Chicago is 'out of control' following a recent spike in violent crime, alleging that the city 'provides multiple opportunities for corruption'.
Barrr's harshest criticism came for mail-in voting, however, which he claimed eradicates the idea of a secret ballot, leaves voters open to influence and presents the opportunity for ballots to be bought.

'You know liberals project,' Barr said. 'All this bulls--- about how the president is going to stay in office and seize power? I've never heard of any of that c**p. I mean, I'm the attorney general. I would think I would have heard about it.
