President Trump forged ahead Wednesday with his voter fraud commission, kicking off its first meeting and repeatedly declaring voter information “will be forthcoming” from the roughly 20 states that have yet to comply with the group’s request.
Trump in May announced the formation of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity. The commission sparked controversy several weeks ago by asking states to provide voter information including names, voting history and party affiliation.
Nearly 20 states reportedly have yet to comply with the request.
“More than 30 states have already shared this information. And the others states, that information will be forthcoming,” Trump said. “So the full truth will be known and exposed if necessary in the light of day.”
The 12-member, bipartisan group will looking into such matters as voter suppression, registration, the voting processes, polices and rules during federal elections.
