Here are the Jan. 6 panel's comments about '2,000 Mules.

Rep. Liz Cheney, and the former Attorney General Bill Barr, both referenced 2,000 Mules (a pro-Trump film) on Monday at the second of seven public hearings scheduled this month.

The committee saw Barr's video clip and concluded that he believes the election wasn't stolen by fraud.

He stated, "I haven’t seen anything since that election that changes my mind about that,"

NPR's Tom Dreisbach reported that 2,000 Mules, a documentary directed by Dinesh Dauza, alleges that it has "smoking guns" evidence of voter fraud in 2020 in the form digital device tracking data.

D'Souza collaborated with True The Vote to make the film. True The Vote claimed that it had purchased geolocation data from various electronic gadgets. According to the group, it used the data to track people's movements in key swing states at the time of the 2020 elections. It claimed that the data showed thousands of people stopping by mail-in drop boxes. The title includes the phrase "mules", which refers to individuals who claimed they stuffed drop boxes full of ballots.

Barr testified that he was not impressed by the film and that "photographic evidence" wasn't convincing.

He also said that the premise was flawed.

He said that if you took 2 million mobile phones and tried to figure out their physical location in an urban area like Atlanta, you would find hundreds of them passing by and spending time around these boxes.

"The idea that a box, five or more boxes, will tell you that it's a mule is absurd"

Barr stated that the film didn't prove widespread illegal ballot harvesting.

Trump, for his part, was a big fan of the film and hosted a premier event at Mar-a-Lago resort with Republican politicians such as Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene from Georgia and Rep. Matt Gaetz from Florida.
