Email #17, Subject: voter fraud

Donald Trump says that: “In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally.” That is a massive number.  A recent poll by Qualtrics shows that over half those who did vote for him believe that it is true. That’s an even more massive number. As the Chair of the House Judiciary Committee, you must respond to this crisis. Either our election system is fraudulent, or the allegations are. America needs the facts, and the Judiciary Committee should provide them. Exactly how many cases of voter fraud in the 2016 Presidential election have been documented? How many other investigations are pending? Is our system riddled with corruption or is the public misinformed? This isn’t a Republican or Democrat issue. This is restoring trust in the single most important aspect of our government. It is your responsibility to act.
