“LA has a different kind of corruption.New York has a different kind. Washington is corrupted by power in many ways,” Barr said.
He added of Chicago: “I'm not sure what I can say and get away with it.”
“I like Chicago, but things now seem very much out of control,” he alleged of the Illinois city.
“There's certainly a culture here that seems to be unique and provides multiple opportunities for corruption.8Barr called violence across the country 'another very disconcerting development'Credit: Getty Images - Getty
“And the public integrity part of the US attorney's office has never been at a loss for work.”
The attorney general said the recent spike in violence and crime in certain US cities is “another very disconcerting development.”
Barr took aim at Democrats, saying their message heading into the 2020 presidential election seems to be "Biden or no peace.”
“As an attorney general, I'm not supposed to get into politics,” he said. “I think we are getting into a position where we're going to find ourselves irrevocably committed to a socialist path.8Barr is seen here in the Oval Office with President Donald TrumpCredit: AFP or licensors
“And I think if Trump loses this election, that will be the case. In other words, I think now there's a clear fork in the road for our country.
“What's very strange that all the great thought that has inspired our country – the principles and the thinking behind it have been forgotten by a large segment of the people.
“Not even forgotten,” Barr said. “Because they probably were never taught about it, they've never considered it.”
Barr went on to criticized Democrats for what he claims is trying to create an “incendiary situation” related to the November 3 election.
“You know liberals project. All this bulls**t about how the president is going to stay in office and seize power? I've never heard of any of that crap.
“I mean, I'm the attorney general. I would think I would have heard about it,” he said.8Barr claimed Democrats are 'creating an incendiary situation where there will be loss of confidence in the vote' come Election DayCredit: Getty Images - Getty
“They are projecting. They are creating an incendiary situation where there will be loss of confidence in the vote.”
“Someone will say the president just won Nevada. ‘Oh, wait a minute! We just discovered 100,000 ballots! Every vote will be counted!’ Yeah, but we don't know where these freaking votes came from.”
Of mail-in voting, Barr told WGN: “Just think about the way we vote now. You have a precinct, your name is on a list.
“You go in and say who you are, you go behind a curtain, no one is allowed to go in there to influence you, and no one can tell how you voted.8There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud when it comes to mail-in voting in the USCredit: AP:Associated Press 8Barr said that mail-in voting allows to 'selling and buying votes'Credit: AP:Associated Press
“All of that is gone with mail-in voting. There's no secret vote. You have to associate the envelope in the mailing and the name of who's sending it in, with the ballot.
“There's no more secret vote with mail-in vote. A secret vote prevents selling and buying votes. So now we're back in the business of selling and buying votes.
Barr went on to say that, “Capricious distribution of ballots means (ballot) harvesting, undue influence, outright coercion, paying off a postman, here's a few hundred dollars, give me some of your ballots.”
Republicans, including President Donald Trump, have repeatedly claimed that mail-in voting leads to widespread voter fraud – although there has been no evidence to prove that claim.8Barr said the Democrats' message seems to be 'Biden or no peace'Credit: Reuters
Because of the coronavirus pandemic, states have expanded their mail-in voting laws and Americans are expected to vote-by-mail more this fall than in any other election.
The shift to voting via the US Postal Service is increasing the chances that the US will not know the winner of November’s presidential race on election night.8Trump has said mail-in voting will lead to a 'rigged election'Credit: AP:Associated Press Most read in NewsBABY-FACED 'KILLER'Girl, 18, 'killed woman with cerebral palsy while trying to shoot boy'FALSE ALARM Suspect trapped by SWAT team in house is not linked to Compton cop shootingRAP SHEET Trump tweets doctored Biden vid playing 'F**k Tha Police' after cop ambushBURNED ALIVE Jealous monster set fiancée alight ‘after she 'showed off body' at beachBARBED COMMENTSBarbados to remove Queen as head of state to 'leave colonial past behind'HIT AND RUN HORRORMoment driver 'runs over BLM protester and breaks BOTH of his legs'
It’s a scenario that is fueling worries about whether Trump will use the delay to sow doubts about the results.
Delayed results have been common in a few states where elections are already conducted largely by mail.
