Donald Trump has his own very special form of logic. He believed that if he had the White House official photographs of his inaugural crowd altered, the size would be equal to that of President Barack Obama’s inaugural crowd. It looks as if POTUS is also trying the same thing with his imagined voter fraud.
The sitting president was upset when he heard that Hillary Clinton won the popular vote by more than three million people. Ergo, he started a commission headed by Kansas Republican governor candidate, Kris Kobach, to study the facts. The number of illegal voters remained in the single and low double digits, so Trump had to disband the whole commission. Yet, he never really gave up.
The Department of Justice (DOJ) has just demanded that North Carolina turn over 15 million voter records to immigration authorities. Attorney, Marc Elias, tweeted:
‘It is 2 month before the election and all 44 North Carolina Counties in the Eastern District of NC have received extensive subpoenas from U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement via the U.S. Attorney’s Office. This is America today.’
The White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said that the commander-in-chief:
‘Still strongly feels there was a large amount of voter fraud and attempted to do a thorough review of it.”
Only 19 people who are not citizens voted illegally in the state during the 2016 election. The DOJ subpoena demanded that North Carolina:
‘(Turn over) any and all voter registration applications and/or other documents … that were submitted to, filed by, received by, or maintained by the North Carolina State Board of Elections” between Jan. 1, 2010 through Aug. 30 of this year.’
Those documents for millions and millions of state residents included: voter registration forms, absentee ballots. and provisional voting forms.
