Trump to Order Commission on Fraudulent Voting in Elections

14 Mai, 2017, 06:06 | Author: Claudine Rigal

"The experts and officials on this commission will follow the facts where they lead".

State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, in a tweet, said, "My office found zero substantiated claims of voter fraud in NY a year ago".

Trump defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton, a former US secretary of state, winning the White House in the Electoral College, the USA system of picking presidents in which state-by-state outcomes determine the victor, not the national popular vote. None of the likely participants had been contacted by the administration when NPR reported on the issue in March. FBI Director James Comey was leading the FBI's investigation into any ties between Trump campaign associates and Russian Federation. It will be overseen by Vice President Mike Pence and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach.

"I think I will be proved right about that, too", he told TIME in an April interview when asked about the lack of evidence to back up his claim. According to the Kansas City Star, he has prosecuted just four cases of double voting. False claims of voter fraud have been used to push through more restrictive voting laws including voter ID, proof of citizenship requirements and limiting or reducing early voting opportunities.

The commission will include two Republicans, former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell and Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson, and two Democrats, New Hampshire Secretary of State Bill Gardner and Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap.

N Korea accuses US of plot to assassinate Kim
The country's leader Kim Jong-un has reportedly threatened to bomb South Korea and the United States using its ballistic missiles. It is important to remember several things, not least that North Korea has provided no supporting evidence for its allegations.

Top civil rights leaders said the commission would encourage voter suppression by justifying new barriers like requiring identity cards for voting. There's been no public action or report by the task force. Days after his inauguration, Trump took to Twitter calling for a "major investigation into VOTER FRAUD", saying that depending on the results of the investigation, "we will strengthen up voting procedures!"

In Kobach, Trump also chose someone who supports his claim of massive vote fraud in the 2016 election.

"Every time a non-citizen votes in an election, not only does it potentially swing that election if it's close, it cancels out the vote of a US citizen", Kobach said in an interview a year ago.

NPR's Tamara Keith contributed reporting to this story. The goal of the committee: to review the nation's election system based on Trump's unsubstantiated claims that millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 election.

President Donald Trump tried to legitimize another one of his conspiracy theories this week with the creation of a panel to investigate voter fraud.
