Trump calls for 'major investigation' into voter fraud

Source: CNN

President Donald Trump called on Wednesday for "a major investigation" into voter fraud, following criticism his administration faced for comments the President made earlier this week alleging millions of illegal votes during the general election, without citing any evidence.

"I will be asking for a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD, including those registered to vote in two states, those who are illegal and ... even, those registered to vote who are dead (and many for a long time). Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedures!" Trump wrote in two consecutive tweets.

Trump's comments on voter fraud came Monday during a meeting with congressional leaders. On Tuesday, Trump's press secretary vigorously defended Trump's statement about illegal voters, though neither Trump nor his surrogates could provide evidence that any substantial illegal voting had occurred or influence the popular vote.

Let me guess: there's going to be an "investigation" and it will find exactly what Drumpf wants it to find, and Drumpf will then use it as justification for even more vote suppression tactics. This is going to get very ugly.

61. A favorite insult from the Reich is to call us liberals and progressives "Snowflakes"

you know, like; "awwww, poor little Snowflake needs a safe space"...stuff like that.

I actually have changed how I address Trump to "President Snowflake", because if anyone truly needs a safe space where his "widdle feelings" won't get hurt, it's Trump.

Sometimes though I prefer the Mob name I came up with for him; "Donny Short Fingers".

President Snowflake does kind of "throw it right back in the face of the T-Baggers" (that alliteration was intentional, BTW)

I guess I'll just have to observe which nickname he hates the most and stick with that.

He said he KNOWS 'Idiot' is watching the show right now. He said they are scheduled to meet soon, so he wants to talk to him about voter suppression tactics that the Republicans have enacted. He said he was up all night thinking about it and he's very troubled and very passionate about this issue.

Later, on CNN, Senator Ron Wyden (D) Oregon, urged ALL the States to enact Oregon's system of Vote By Mail! He said it's a great, safe way to vote and has a verifiable paper trail that's worked for a decade!

16. OK, Trump asked for it: Paging Greg Palast

http://www.gregpalast.com/election-stolen-heres/

On Tuesday, we saw Crosscheck elect a Republican Senate and as President, Donald Trump.  The electoral putsch was aided by nine other methods of attacking the right to vote of Black, Latino and Asian-American voters, methods detailed in my book and film, including “Caging,” “purging,” blocking legitimate registrations, and wrongly shunting millions to “provisional” ballots that will never be counted.

Trump signaled the use of “Crosscheck” when he claimed the election is “rigged” because “people are voting many, many times.”  His operative Kobach, who also advised Trump on building a wall on the southern border, devised a list of 7.2 million “potential” double voters—1.1 million of which were removed from the voter rolls by Tuesday. The list is loaded overwhelmingly with voters of color and the poor. Here's a sample of the list

http://www.gregpalast.com/election-stolen-heres/


"I will be asking for a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD, including those registered to vote in
two states, ... "

The Election was Stolen – Here’s How…

Friday, November 11, 2016
Before a single vote was cast, the election was fixed by GOP and Trump operatives.

Starting in 2013 – just as the Supreme Court gutted the Voting Rights Act – a coterie of Trump operatives, under the direction of Kris Kobach, Kansas Secretary of State, created a system to purge 1.1 million Americans of color from the voter rolls of GOP–controlled states.

The system, called Crosscheck, is detailed in my Rolling Stone report,
“The GOP’s Stealth War on Voters,” 8/24/2016.

Crosscheck in action:
Trump victory margin in Michigan: 13,107
Michigan Crosscheck purge list: 449,922

Trump victory margin in Arizona: 85,257
Arizona Crosscheck purge list: 270,824

Trump victory margin in North Carolina: 177,008
North Carolina Crosscheck purge list: 589,393

On Tuesday, we saw Crosscheck elect a Republican Senate and as President, Donald Trump. The electoral putsch was aided by nine other methods of attacking the right to vote of Black, Latino and Asian-American voters, methods detailed in my book and film, including “Caging,” “purging,” blocking legitimate registrations, and wrongly shunting millions to “provisional” ballots that will never be counted.

Trump signaled the use of “Crosscheck” when he claimed the election is “rigged” because “people are voting many, many times.” His operative Kobach, who also advised Trump on building a wall on the southern border, devised a list of 7.2 million “potential” double voters—1.1 million of which were removed from the voter rolls by Tuesday.

22. Trump himself -- through his lawyers -- have also argued that there was no evidence of voter fraud i

Taxpayers going to pay for this bogus investigation?? Where is the Russian investigation related to meddling into our election??


Spicer did not say specifically which studies the President was using to support his claim of 3 to 5 million illegally cast votes, but a 2014 study by Jesse Richman and David Earnest found more than 14% of non-citizens in 2008 and 2010 "indicated that they were registered to vote." Only US citizens can vote in federal elections.

However, Brian Schaffner, a political scientist at the University of Massachusetts, told CNN on Tuesday that his study that is apparently being cited by the White House was misinterpreted and did not support the administration's claims.

A number of studies have also found no evidence of widespread voter fraud.
The Truth About Voter Fraud, a report written by experts at The Brennan Center for Justice, found voter fraud rates were between 0.00004% and 0.0009%.


Trump himself -- through his lawyers -- have also argued that there was no evidence of voter fraud in the 2016 election. In a court filing objecting to Green Party candidate Jill Stein's Michigan recount petition, lawyers for the president wrote, "All available evidence suggests that the 2016 general election was not tainted by fraud or mistake."

35. He pretty much had to

If voter fraud was actually occurring on the scale which he is alleging, he would be derelict in his duty not to do so. It will be amusing when they find dozens, rather than millions of fraudulent votes.

58. Yes, does he think they should be dug up and put in jail?

How can they even un-register to vote if they are dead?

48. No matter, he lost the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes.

 

Let him investigate, he may end up losing by even more. What a jackass. X

49. Since when is being registered in more than one state a crime? Does he

know people move? It's only voter fraud if people vote in more than one state, like a couple of GOP cases we've heard about.

54. They will, as usual, play fast and loose with the language.

 

Being registered will come to mean the same thing as voter fraud if we let them do this.

62. He's setting the stage for a 50 state voter ID law.

Along with ending all early voting, "modernising" (paperless) voting, authorized "poll watchers" and of course a further increase in voter purging.

The Republicans will go along with it with an eye on 18' and 20'.

65. "Ahh, but the strawberries that's... that's where I had them."

"Ahh, but the strawberries that's... that's where I had them. They laughed at me and made jokes but I proved beyond the shadow of a doubt and with... geometric logic... that a duplicate key to the wardroom icebox DID exist, and I'd have produced that key if they hadn't of pulled the Caine out of action. I, I, I know now they were only trying to protect some fellow officers..."

66. And if no fraud is found will he then claim investigation fraud?

Will he throw himself on the floor, flailing his arms and legs and scream?
