Trump has disbanded his voter fraud commission, blaming state resistance
12 Января, 2018, 18:04 | Author: Wade Massey
Trump established the commission just after his election, which he continues to claim was fraught with widespread fraud that resulted in Hillary Clinton receiving about 2.9 million more votes of the people than he did, while he won the majority of the Electoral College. However, there was no evidence to support the claim, which was made when Steve Bannon, Trump's chief strategist at the time, said he was able to cast his vote in New York City despite being a registered voter in Florida.
Critics of the commission also cited fears that the commission was working both to justify Trump's fraud claims and to make it more hard for poor and minority voters to participate in elections. He explained the move by saying that "many states" were not complying with the commission's requests for "basic information relevant to its inquiry". Several states refused to provide the commission with requested voter information, which prevented it from performing its job. They fought hard that the Commission not see their records or methods because they know that many people are voting illegally. "The sham commission was a political ploy to provide cover for the president's wild and unfounded claims of mass voter fraud and to lay the foundation to purge eligible voters from the rolls".
The president also directed the Department of Homeland Security "to review its findings and determine next courses of action". Republican state election officials have found no such evidence, either in 2016 or in the past, and federal investigators, including the Justice Department under President George W. Bush, have struck out, too.

Kobach sought names, addresses, date of birth, party affiliation, the last four digits of social security numbers, military status, data on felony convictions and "voter history". He's the perceived frontrunner in a crowded field of Republican candidates likely to pounce upon the commission's success at ticking off civil rights groups and secretaries of state.
