Merrill Blasts Trump's Voter Fraud Commission

Bernie Sanders, who challenged Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination.

President Donald Trump on Thursday established a new federal commission with the goal of targeting problems in voting systems across the United States.

The new panel coincides with several USA investigations into alleged Russian meddling in the November election, including selectively leaking hacked emails and circulating false news reports.

Trump repeatedly alleged that the election system was "rigged" during his campaign and later argued that massive, widespread fraud kept him from winning the popular vote.

The measure would still need to be passed by the Senate and then signed into law by President Donald Trump before becoming law. McSally, a member of the House Armed Services Committee, worked with her colleague, Rep.

Crosscheck purged over 7 million people - majority Democratic, low-income, people of color, and many in critical swing states like North Carolina and OH - but only four people flagged by the system were ever charged with illegal voting.

Under a state law he lobbied for, Kobach is the only elections secretary in America with his own team of prosecutors, independent of the attorney general, who can target voter fraud - although his actual attempts to find voter fraud were nearly a complete bust.

"The President-elect has been talking to different people, including Kris Kobach of Kansas, about voting irregularities or the number of illegal votes that may have been cast", Conway said.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that at times complaints of electoral fraud have been used as a "pretext" to deny voting rights to working families and to certain communities such as African Americans and Hispanics. He has been advising Trump, who right after his election claimed that he lost the popular vote because millions of undocumented immigrants voted illegally.

There's reportedly "an internal memo written by a senior NSA official" that describes Trump's conversation with Rogers. The president made the same request to Mike Rogers, director of the National Security Agency, the official said.

Meanwhile, Trump was calling out the now-fired Comey for being a "showboat and grandstander". "The experts and officials on this commission will follow the facts where they lead", Huckabee Sanders said.

The order also targets laws and rules that undermine Americans' confidence in the voting process.

On Wednesday, a federal judge upheld an order compelling Kobach to turn over information he shared with Trump during a meeting in November of 2016.

Numerous studies have shown voter fraud to be extremely rare. The American Civil Liberties Union, now suing Kobach's office over a Kansas law that requires proof of citizenship in order to register to vote, requested the release of the documents Kobach brought to his meeting with Trump. Even some conservatives admit that such laws, which make it more hard for people of color, people with low incomes, and young people-who are all less likely to have photo ID like drivers licenses or passports-to vote, are actually about winning elections for the GOP.
