President Trump is expected to start a commission to review alleged voter fraud and voter suppression in the U.S. election system, the Associated Press reports. One official says Vice President Mike Pence and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach will lead the panel, which will look at allegations of improper voting and fraudulent voter registration in states and nationally. The announcement is expected today.
Trump has alleged, without providing evidence, that 3 to 5 million people voted illegally in his 2016 campaign against Democrat Hillary Clinton. The Trump panel will include both Republicans and Democrats as well as current and former state election officials.
