William M. McSwain, former U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania during President Trump’s administration, slammed Democrats for the way they ran the 2020 election in Pennsylvania, calling it a “partisan disgrace.”

In a June 9 letter penned to President Trump and shared in a statement made through his Save America PAC, McSwain stated, “President Trump, you were right to be upset about the way the Democrats ran the 2020 election in Pennsylvania – it was a partisan disgrace. The Governor, the Secretary of the Commonwealth, and the partisan State Supreme Court made up their own rules and did not follow the law.”

McSwain continued in his letter, saying that he had “received various allegations of voter fraud and election irregularities…. Attorney General Barr, however, instructed me not to make any public statements or put out any press releases regarding possible election irregularities. I was also given a directive to pass along serious allegations to the State Attorney General for investigation – the same State Attorney General who had already declared that you could not win.”

The former U.S. attorney further added that he “disagreed with that decision, but those were my orders.”

President Trump included the letter in his statement with the caption: “To the Unselect Committee – Have you seen this letter? Why wouldn’t the Justice Department act?”
