Trump’s Plans Backfire, His Voter Fraud Committee Is Now Under Federal Investigation
Donald Trump’s obsession with winning everything led him to form a voter fraud commission because he couldn’t accept the fact that Hillary Clinton had won the popular vote by a large margin. Now, thanks to the efforts of Democratic Sens. Cory Booker (NJ), Michael Bennet (CO), and Amy Klobuchar (MN), Trump’s plans have backfired.
The Government Accountability Office will now be investigating Trump’s voter fraud commission.
The Democratic Senators requested the GAO investigation after the voter fraud commission refused to respond to congressional requests for invitations about their activities.
The Democrats requested the following:
The GAO responded to the request. They wrote:
Dear Senator Bennet:
Thank you for your letter of October 18, 2017, jointly signed by Ranking Member Amy Klobuchar, Senate Committee on Rules and Administration and Senator Cory A. Booker, requesting that the Government Accountability Office review the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity.
GAO accepts your request as work that is within the scope of its authority. At the current time, we anticipate that staff with the required skills will be available to initiate an engagement in about five months. Your request has been assigned to Mr. George Scott, Managing Director, Homeland Security, and Justice. Closer to the time GAO can start this engagement, Mr. Scott or a member of his team will contact Mr. Brian Appel to confirm that this request continues to be your priority for us. As applicable we will also be in contact with the cognizant Inspector General’s office to ensure that we are not duplicating efforts. If an issue arises during this coordination, we will consult with you regarding its resolution.
Trump’s voter fraud commission decided to keep their activities a secret, which raised many concerns. Now they’re paying for it and will be investigated. It wouldn’t be a surprise if they were up to something illegal.
