Today, President Donald Trump is reportedly expected to sign an executive order to establish a commission that will investigate allegations of voter fraud and voter suppression in the United States.

ABC News, citing “multiple senior administration officials,” reports that Vice President Mike Pence and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach will be Chair and Vice Chair of the “Presidential Commission on Election Integrity.”

The outlet further states that the commission will include both Republicans and Democrats who will study “vulnerabilities” in America’s voting systems and identify how they may affect “improper voting, fraudulent voter registrations, and fraudulent voting.”

The creation of this commission, reports ABC News, sees Trump making good on his promise to crack down on cases of voter fraud.

“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,” he told ABC in January. “But we will find out because we need a better system where [fraud] can’t happen.”

Needless to say, news of Trump’s new commission does not sit well with liberals, who generally believe that voter fraud is a non-issue in the U.S.

HuffPost’s article detailing the new commission is titled, “Donald Trump Announces Commission To Investigate His Baseless Widespread Voter Fraud Claim.”

The outlet quotes director of voting and elections at common cause Allegra Chapman, who reportedly said, “in my mind, this is akin to launching missile strikes with the hopes of getting popularity points. There’s just no there there. But they’ll try to put on a big show over a so-called widespread problem that doesn’t exist.”

Salon, meanwhile, calls Trump’s voter fraud claims “bogus” and suggests that the new commission could land itself “among the most harmful aspects of his presidency.”

Over on Twitter the triggering is also underway.

    How can you catch fraud if there is no ID check allowed or even required to vote? saying there’s no proof of fraud is like saying there’s zero incidences of murder because investigating murder is not legal.

    “No stats on this thing happening we aren’t allowed to check for!”

    How the fuck are the leftists saying voter fraud isn’t a problem? Busing people around to vote isn’t a problem now?

    And seriously America, put a law that requires ID for voting, for fuck’s sake as a European I thought this would be common sense

      According to the Democrats it is racist to expect minorities to get an ID to vote because they can’t afford to buy one. This argument falls flat since in most states, an ID only runs around $10 dollars(9.2 euros). The other argument is it is hard to get an ID even if you can afford one. There are a few examples brought by the left where that could be true especially if the person lost access to their birth certificate or other acceptable identifying documents. My take on that is it is the responsibility of everyone to maintain their records if they wish to participate in elections. Yes documents can be destroyed through no fault of their own such as a house fire. When this happens, rules do need to be relaxed by the agencies issuing IDs where it can be proven that an adverse incident has occurred. ID are required for so many things to participate in everyday life, so how did the person avoid needing one for so long?

      If a few people lose their ability to vote because of an ID requirement, I feel it is more than offset by the potential damage to the voice of the voters that fraud causes when there is no proper accountability and verification done especially since the fraud that occurs is mostly one sided in favor of the Democrat party. In essence, the left’s arguments are nothing more than a “straw-man” argument to draw attention away from the real fraud that occurs where ID is not required.

    Forget the Philippines & the Banana republics, CUZ in the US the governors control the Attorney Generals who control the counting of ballots. It’s fraud to the highest level.

    Gerrymandering is how 31 percent of the pop control the remaining 69 percent. It’s like that ol’ fashion’ religion . Religion controls the idiots and then abscond with their Gra’ Ma’s money.

    Religious America is wicked. (Cartman- South Park) America is Wicked. (thats how we make money, my good sir. forget the episode #)

    ALWAYS REMEMBER, the ONLY way republicans CONTROL the country (state houses and the congress) is that they gerrymander and that democrats cluster in large cities. Thus state houses and senate seats.

    Never forget, that for 40 year have vote has been stolen you vote.

    it stinks to high heaven. And my good sir, revolution is in the air.
