Trump launches commission to probe alleged voter fraud

Associated Press

WASHINGTON -- President Donald Trump signed an executive order Thursday launching a commission to review alleged voter fraud and voter suppression, building upon his claims that millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 election.

The White House said the president's "Advisory Commission on Election Integrity" would examine allegations of improper voting and fraudulent voter registration in states and across the nation. Vice President Mike Pence will chair the panel and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach will be vice chair of the commission, which will report back to Trump by 2018. "We can't take for granted the integrity of the vote," Pence said in a statement. He said the commission would "review ways to strengthen the integrity of elections in order to protect and preserve the principle of one person, one vote because the integrity of the vote is the foundation of our democracy."

Trump has alleged, without evidence, that 3 million to 5 million people voted illegally in his 2016 election against Democrat Hillary Clinton. He has vowed since the start of his administration to investigate voter fraud, a process that has been delayed for months.

Last November, Kobach said he supported Trump's assertions that he would have won the popular vote if "millions" hadn't voted illegally.
