MADISON — The FBI has been sitting on cases of voter fraud and have done nothing about it, according to a former U.S. Justice Department attorney.
Christian Adams last week told talk show host Vicki McKenna that the U.S. Attorney’s office in Milwaukee and the FBI are supposed to be working on an investigation into Wisconsin voters caught voting twice in the same federal election. Adams, who served from 2005 to 2010 in the Voting Section at the Justice Department, says he has information showing the federal agents are “doing absolutely nothing about” the voting fraud case.
“They are more interested in scrutinizing the people who gave them the information than scrutinizing the voter rolls and the public records that would make this a bowtied case of voter fraud,” Adams said, adding that there’s an “unwillingness to act.”
The U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, did not return Empower Wisconsin’s request for comment Friday.
Adams, president and general counsel of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, said his organization has been investigating the Milwaukee fraud cases. Investigators used commercial data analysis to track Social Security numbers, “so we knew exactly who we were talking about, the same people voting twice in Wisconsin and somewhere else in the same federal election.”
Adams pointed to the priorities of the deep staters who were “very hot to try to get” Paul Manafort, who briefly chaired the Trump 2016 presidential campaign, and the Trump campaign in general on bogus “Russian collusion” allegations.
“But when it comes to voter fraud, these bureaucrats are dragging their feet,” the former prosecutor said. “I’ll tell you, their bosses in Washington are not going to like it when they find out they’ve had this information for a long time and not done the leg work to get something done.”
Adams told McKenna he would name names in the coming weeks.
As Empower Wisconsin has reported, the Wisconsin Election Commission has referred 43 cases of suspected double voting cases to 19 district attorneys offices in the state. In one of the cases under review in Green County, the DA there found that a voter, now deceased, not only voted twice in the same 2018 federal election (In Wisconsin and Illinois), but did the same in the 2016 federal election.
