Trump voter fraud commission being moved to Department of Homeland Security

By Amber Randall

President Donald Trump decided to dissolve his commission on voter fraud Wednesday, citing refusal from states to cooperate with the commission.

Trump, who created the commission in order to investigate possible instances of voter fraud in the 2016 election, is instead asking the Department of Homeland Security to review the matter, the White House said in a statement.

“Despite substantial evidence of voter fraud, many states have refused to provide the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity with basic information relevant to its inquiry,” Trump said in a statement released by the White House. “Rather than engage in endless legal battles at taxpayer expense, today I signed an executive order to dissolve the Commission, and have asked the Department of Homeland Security to review these issues and determine next courses of action.”

Trump created the commission in May because he believed millions of people had voted in the election illegally. Vice President Mike Pence and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach led the commission, which previously requested the 50 states turn over pertinent information from state voter rolls, among other things.

  1. This country is truly broken when the federal government cannot get valid information from states. Voter fraud is fundamentally changing our country to the breaking point……..this is how wars begin in other countries………..

  2. The states refuse to cooperate because they KNOW…… just like Vermont KNOWS…. that voter fraud takes place and they simply don’t care. Not only do they not care; they encourage it. Democrats.
