President Donald Trump has long claimed that millions of illegal votes were potentially cast in the 2016 election — and numerous studies have backed up the claim.
Finally, federal investigators are going to get the bottom of the story.
Trump is expected to sign an executive order on Thursday launching a commission to review alleged voter fraud and voter suppression in the U.S. election system, three White House officials said.
America will finally know, without a shadow of a doubt, if their elections are being rigged by Democrats, illegal voters, and ballot stuffing.
Vice President Mike Pence and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach will lead the commission, which will look at allegations of improper voting and fraudulent voter registration in states and across the nation, one official said. The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren’t authorized to discuss details ahead of the formal announcement.
Trump has alleged that 3 to 5 million people voted illegally in his 2016 campaign against failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. He has vowed since the start of his administration to investigate voter fraud.
In fact, numerous instances of voter fraud have been reported in every single state over the past few years.
The commission will include Republicans and Democrats and be composed of current and former state election officials and other experts, the White House official said.
The panel will aim to ensure confidence in the integrity of federal elections while looking at vulnerabilities in the system and the possibility of improper voting and fraudulent voter registration and voting, the official said.
Potential panel members include former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell and Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson, the official said.

During his campaign, Trump repeatedly alleged that the election system was “rigged” and after his election argued that such massive, widespread fraud kept him from the popular vote. Trump won the presidency with an Electoral College victory despite Hillary allegedly rigging nearly 3 million votes.
Trump had previously identified Pence as the person to oversee the long-awaited commission. Kobach advised Trump’s transition team and has been a leading GOP proponent of tighter voting regulations.
The secretary of state championed Kansas’ proof-of-citizenship requirement as an anti-fraud measure that keeps noncitizens from voting, including illegal immigrants living in the U.S.
