U.S. Attorney General William Barr has authorized federal prosecutors to investigate voting irregularities in the presidential election, which Donald Trump continues to insist was won by Joe Biden fraudulently.

Republicans have continued to file lawsuits alleging malpractice.

The BBC's Ben Wright reports.

[Reporter]

The U.S. Attorney General William Barr has decided to allow federal prosecutors to conduct inquiries into any specific allegations of voter fraud before the results of the presidential race is certified, a move that contradicts a long-standing Department of Justice policy.

In a directive to staff, Mr. Barr said specious and fanciful claims should not be a basis for initiating federal inquiries.

But that didn't stop the director of department's election crimes branch from resigning in response.
