Whatever it was, pretty sure I’m not gonna like it.
I read this more as Barr signaling his more Trumpy US Attorneys to shoot their shot—and I’d hazard a guess he is looking at McSwain in particular—rather than ordering up a probe of specific subject matter ala Durham.
“Some (DOJ) colleagues ... told others that they feared (AG Barr) had set the stage for a U.S. attorney in a battleground state to announce an inquiry or take investigative steps that advance Mr. Trump’s debunked narrative that the election was stolen.

Media decision desks were willing to call Virginia for Biden when he was behind in the tabulation, but they are letting us go through a long national game of ‘99 bottles of beer on the wall’ with Pennsylvania. Am I right to think this is bc calling PA is calling the presidency?

It’s probably most helpful if I post some of the filings. So, first, I’d point people to Judge Sullivan’s order earlier today for USPS to conduct sweeps in certain districts by 3:00 p.m. EST.
Second, take a look at the postal service’s response. There’s a lot of verbiage but the ultimate message is they’re not going to meet the 3:00 p.m. deadline Judge Sullivan set (and, cheekily, they say they don’t think it really is a deadline).
