White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows criticized FBI Director Christopher Wray over his testimony to Congress that he had not seen sufficient evidence of widespread voter fraud in a major election.

“With all due respect to Director Wray, he has a hard time finding emails in his own FBI let alone figuring out whether there is any kind of voter fraud,” Meadows said Friday on “CBS This Morning.”

“This is a very different case,” Meadows added. “The rules are being changed and so what I’m suggesting is, perhaps he can drill down on the investigation that just started, others that we’re seeing in North Carolina and other places where multiple ballots, duplicate ballots, are being sent out. Perhaps he needs to get involved on the ground and he would change his testimony on Capitol Hill.” 

For months President Trump has argued the expansion of mail-in voting during the Nov. 3 election will cause widespread voter fraud -- especially in states that are sending ballots to all voters, whether they requested a mail-in ballot or not. However, experts contradict the president, saying there is no evidence of mail-in voter fraud and elections boards have assured they have checks in place. 

“We have not seen, historically, any kind of coordinated national voter fraud effort in a major election, whether it’s by mail or otherwise,” Wray said during a hearing before the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee.

With voter fraud at the forefront of the 2020 election, the president has yet to agree to a peaceful transition of power if he loses. 

However, Meadows said Trump  will commit to a peaceful transition of power as long as the election is “fair.”

“I think he commits to a peaceful transfer as long as it’s a fair election and I think that even the lead-up into this was talking about that very subject,” Meadows said. “We now know that we have a Department of Justice investigation in the ballots that were discarded from veterans in Pennsylvania. That’s very troubling.” 

Meadows was referring to a Justice Department announcement that a handful of military ballots that had been discarded in the swing state of Pennsylvania. 

While the DOJ failed to specify where the ballots were found, officials said nine ballots were recovered, seven of which had been cast for Trump. The Justice Department on Thursday ordered the Pennsylvania county involved to change its procedures.
