Trump signs executive order launching voter fraud commission
Fox News – Politics
President Trump signed an executive order on Thursday to launch a commission to review alleged voter fraud, a White House official confirmed to Fox News, after months of claiming voter fraud in the 2016 presidential election.
The order, titled “Presidential Commission on Election Integrity,” would establish a bipartisan commission, chaired by Vice President Mike Pence, to review alleged voter fraud and suppression. Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, who has investigated voter fraud in Kansas, will serve as vice chair.
“This action by President Trump fulfills another promise made to the American people,” Pence said in a statement. “We can’t take for granted the integrity of the vote.”

New York Post – By Natalie Musumeci
“… “Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity” dedicated to looking into Trump’s as-yet-unfounded allegations of fraudulent voting…Trump has repeatedly insisted, without evidence, that 3 million to 5 million illegal votes were cast for his Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election…In a reaction to the news, Sen. Bernie Sanders tweeted, “Trump just announced a commission to examine voter fraud. The only problem with that is there is virtually no voter fraud in this country.”
CBS May 11, 2017
“This order was spurred by Mr. Trump’s unsubstantiated claim that millions of people voted illegally in the 2016 election, thus costing him the popular vote. Congressional leaders including House Speaker Paul Ryan and Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham have said they’ve seen no evidence to back up this claim…Democratic Federal Election Commissioner Ellen Weintraub asked Mr. Trump in a letter to disclose evidence of his charges of voter fraud presidential election…”Your allegations are not properly a matter for a future investigation to take up, as you cannot have responsibly alleged this scheme without already having sufficient facts in hand to do so,” Weintraub wrote.”
New York Times by Julie Hirschfeld Davis
“President Trump on Thursday named Kris W. Kobach, the Kansas secretary of state who has pressed for aggressive measures to crack down on undocumented immigrants, to a commission investigating vote fraud, following through on his unsubstantiated claim that millions of “illegals” voted for his Democratic rival and robbed him of victory in the national popular vote…Democrats and civil rights groups condemned the panel as a taxpayer-funded witch hunt, and the American Civil Liberties Union filed a legal request to the White House for records showing “concrete evidence” of fraudulent voting that would warrant the creation of such a commission.”
Los Angeles Times by Noah Bierman
“…thrusting back into the spotlight an issue that few other Republican leaders want to tackle as he tries to divert attention from the controversy over his firing of FBI Director James B. Comey…The order adds a new chapter to an issue that has confounded many political observers…Like many of Trump’s executive orders, the text of Thursday’s missive falls far short of the dramatic rhetoric Trump once used to describe its mission — a “major investigation.. now can mobilize the power of the federal government, with a pen stroke, to address an unsubstantiated claim .”
ACLU May 11, 2017
“… filed a Freedom of Information Act “FOIA” request seeking information that the Trump administration is using as the basis for its voter fraud claims. The commission vice chair is Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, whom the American Civil Liberties Union has successfully sued numerous times over voter suppression policies…Dale Ho… attempting to spread his own fake news about election integrity…”
You get the idea….
Soooo let’s see what happens when searching DoJ press releases weenies…understand ALL voters rights who are LEGALLY allowed to vote should be protected no matter how crooked the government at the time is…

Voter Fraud Facts
Types of voter fraud include intimidation, vote buying, misinformation, misleading / confusing ballot papers, ballot stuffing, incorrect recording of votes, misuses of proxy votes, destruction / invalidation of ballots, and tampering with electronic voting machines.
The truth is that voter fraud does exist. Not just in America, but in just about every election since the beginning of time (to be fair, this is a logical assumption and not a fact). Make no mistake, neither the left or right (radicals excluded) think we don’t need to protect our democracy from voter fraud, they just have very different opinions on how this should be done.
One Question- WHAT ARE YOU MORE AFRAID OF–That nothing will be found or that your lies and hypocrisy will actually be brought to light?
If people are innocent then there is no reason to be screaming or be sarcastic……..
We are after all a nation that believes in “innocent until proven guilty”… just as we are a nation that believes every legal voter should have the right to make up his or her own mind and cast their own ballot….assuming they are not dead…
“Oh, is that the swamp dredger I hear…coming to scoop out the stench?
The point in these exercises – is that Voter Fraud does exist…sometimes in subtle ways…others as undercover videos have shown in far more aggressive and totally illegal stacking of the deck.
So when “reporters” attempt to make a “no big deal” out of voter fraud, the minute they hit send they are lying to their readership.
ALL kinds of voter manipulation is a problem whether it is talking smack around a voter polling place, signing illegal or nonexistent Living names, trying to rush illegal immigrants through with promises for votes…it does NOT matter, this is an act which affects maybe only one vote but like raindrops when they fall can actually create a flood designed to alter or manipulate the outcome.
That Bernie Sanders said there was no voter fraud is both hilarious and sad since his run for president was proven to have been stacked against him.
ACLU can take a flying leap……..a president has every right to direct his branch of government just like the leading members of ACLU makes decisions and directs the dumbarse lawyers. Obviously, we did not see ACLU object to any presidential actions over the last eight years for a reason–even though as citizens we did have objections, we also knew that management decisions happened that we believed over extended the president’s reach.
Take your shadow government, oh and your shadow media, and shove them back into that coffin.
By the way I found it very revealing that from 2009 to 2017 very few real and important DoJ indictments found their way into the press releases. Yet, in 2017, even with a skeleton crew and senate delayed confirmation, the current DoJ is kicking butt on indictments!
