On Thursday, President Donald Trump signed an executive order establishing a commission to review alleged voter fraud and voter suppression in the American election system.
Officials say Vice President Mike Pence and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach will be announced as Chair and Vice Chair of the “Presidential Commission on Election Integrity” in a press release shortly.
The commission, which includes Republicans and Democrats, will be tasked with studying “vulnerabilities” in U.S. voting systems and potential effects on “improper voting, fraudulent voter registrations and fraudulent voting,” according to comments by one Trump official.
Voter fraud has been a big issue for Trump, with him saying it could have been the reason Hillary Clinton bested him with the popular vote.
“You can never really find, you know, there are going to be — no matter what numbers we come up with there are going to be lots of people that did things that we’re not going to find out about,” Trump told ABC News’ David Muir in January. “But we will find out because we need a better system where that can’t happen.”
