Former French president Valery Giscard d'Estaing, who led his country to a firmly pro-European path, died on Wednesday aged 94 after contracting Covid-19, his family said. Giscard, who had been in hospital several times in the past few months for heart problems, died "surrounded by his family" at their home in the Loire region, his family said in a statement. He made one of his last public appearances on September 30 last year for the funeral of another former president, Jacques Chirac, who had been his prime minister. Giscard became the youngest ever president at 48 in 1974, beating his Socialist rival Francois Mitterrand, to whom he then lost after his seven-year term in 1981 in a failed re-election bid. His presidency marked a clear break from the Gaullist conservatism of postwar France which had been dominated by Charles de Gaulle and his successor Georges Pompidou.

As for the idea that voting machines were compromised, Mr. Barr said the feds “have looked into that, and so far, we haven’t seen anything to substantiate that.”
