Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is demanding President Trump shut down the voter fraud probe after dead and fraudulent votes were found registered to Democrats by investigators.
Schumer insists that his reason for the request is due to to the Antifa-led riots in Charlottesville earlier this month – and not because Wisconsin Democrats lost 300,000 votes last election due to strict voter ID laws in the state
The Washington Examiner reports:
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., is calling on President Trump to close down his voter fraud commission in the aftermath of the violence in Charlottesville, Va., and instead said the government should work to “end the assault on voting rights.”
“[W]hat troubles so many Americans every bit as much as the president’s shocking response to this national tragedy is the methodical and pernicious way in which his administration is promoting discrimination, both subtle and not so subtle, in its policies and actions — especially when it comes to undermining the universal right of every American to vote,” Schumer said in a post on Medium, referring to Trump’s Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity.
“Many of us found the Election Integrity Commission distasteful when it was first created,” Schumer said. “The president’s recent failure to unequivocally condemn bigotry makes its rescission imperative.”
Schumer said if Trump refuses to disband the voter fraud commission, which he started based on the claim that 3 to 5 million illegal immigrants voted for Hillary Clinton in the 2016 election, Congress should attach a provision next month to a piece of must-pass legislation prohibiting the panel from operating.
