Before last year’s election, Donald Trump ruffled a lot of feathers the wrong way when he predicted that some of the elections would be rigged and that there would be voter fraud that would help elect Crooked Hillary. After the election, Trump still spoke about several million votes that were cast for Hillary via voter fraud and everyone, Democrats and Republicans, angrily disagreed claiming there was no voter fraud. At one point, Trump claimed that between 3 and 5 million people voted illegally and that most of those votes went to Hillary Clinton.
“President Donald Trump told Capitol Hill leaders Monday evening that he lost the popular vote because 3 million to 5 million ‘illegals’ voted for Democrat Hillary Clinton, according to three sources in both parties familiar with the meeting.”
“Trump has repeatedly claimed that he lost the popular vote in November’s election because of voter fraud. There is no evidence of this, and none that millions of undocumented immigrants voted for Clinton. It’s a fixation for Trump, who won the election because of Electoral College votes, but has had trouble accepting that Clinton won the popular vote by more than 2.8 million.”
The Trump administration has launched an investigation into election integrity to see if there were any instances of voter fraud. Kris Kobach, Kansas Secretary of State, is serving as the Vice-Chair of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity. Kobach sent a request to all 50 states asking for voter registration information to help them with their investigation.
However, officials in many states, mostly Democratic but some Republican, are refusing to cooperate with the request. They claim that the voter registration rolls contain private information and they don’t believe the federal government should have that information.
My first response to that is what difference does it make if the federal government has it or not, since state governments already have it?
Virginia’s Democrat Gov. Terry McAuliffe responded to the request, saying that it was based on ‘specious and false notion that there was widespread voter fraud last November’ and adding:
“I have no intention of honoring this request. Virginia conducts fair, honest, and democratic elections, and there is no evidence of significant voter fraud in Virginia,”
Democrats continue to adamantly claim that there was no and never has been any voter fraud on their part. If they have nothing to hide, then why hide the information. Usually, only guilty people respond by trying to hide the information sought.
Why has no one else investigated the claims made by Gregg Phillips, Founder of VoteStand and JumpVote? Only days after the November 8, 2016 elections, Phillips posted:
“Completed analysis of database of 180 million voter registrations.”
“Number of non-citizen votes exceeds 3 million.”
“Consulting legal team.”
“We have verified more than three million votes cast by non-citizens. “
“We are [email protected] to initiate legal action. “
After the election, The Washington Times posted:
“A large number of non-citizen Hispanics, as many as 2 million, were illegally registered to vote in the U.S., according to a nationwide poll.”
“The National Hispanic Survey provides additional evidence for use by anti-voter fraud conservatives and bolsters an analysis by professors at Old Dominion University who say non-citizens registered and voted in potentially large numbers.”
“President Trump has announced he will appoint a task force on voter fraud headed by Vice President Mike Pence. He says he wants the investigation to focus on inaccurate voter registration rolls, which are maintained by the states and the District of Columbia.”
“‘It is a fact and you will not deny it, that there are massive numbers of non-citizens in this country who are registered to vote,’ White House adviser Stephen Miller told ABC News. ‘That is a scandal. We should stop the presses’.”
What about the evidence of voter fraud found during one of the recounts requested by Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein? One of the states that Stein wanted a recount in was Michigan. However, before the recount could be finished, a liberal judge halted it, but not after discrepancies and questions about vote integrity had been found. According to the Detroit News:
“One-third of precincts in Wayne County could be disqualified from an unprecedented statewide recount of presidential election results because of problems with ballots.”
“Michigan’s largest county voted overwhelmingly for Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, but officials couldn’t reconcile vote totals for 610 of 1,680 precincts during a countywide canvass of vote results late last month.”
“Most of those are in heavily Democratic Detroit, where the number of ballots in precinct poll books did not match those of voting machine printout reports in 59 percent of precincts, 392 of 662”
Many believe that these instances are on the tip of a huge iceberg of voter fraud. Are Democrats afraid that if a formal and thorough investigation into election integrity it will reveal that there were enough fraudulent and illegal votes cast that would prove that Donald Trump actually won the honest popular vote and not Hillary? If not, what are they hiding?
