Although there is little evidence of voter fraud, President Trump claims the 2016 Election results were skewed by millions of fraudulent votes. Whether he is suggesting he would have otherwise won the popular vote, or should have lost the election, is unclear. To prove his point, whichever it is, Trump created a Voter Fraud Commission yesterday.
How ironic. The Fraud Commission launched only a week after a new study on voter suppression revealed Trump would likely have lost the 2016 Election, except for the boost he got from stricter voter suppression laws.
The President could have saved his energy (which I know he would want to do), but he must not have heard about the Study. That alone, without another commission (which might bloat the government), could have adequately provided what he needs most: a graceful way to bow out of the presidency. Before he gets impeached.
Democracy Now! host Amy Goodman talked to Ari Burman, who broke the story about the study results on voter suppression. Extremely interesting. Both his article and Goodman’s video are linked below.
