WATCH: Trump’s voter fraud commission meets for the first time
WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s voter integrity commission is meeting Wednesday for the first time amid outrage over its request for extensive personal voter data.
The first meeting of President Donald Trump’s election integrity commission on voter fraud will begin at 11 a.m. ET. Watch the meeting in the player above.
The Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity got off to a rocky start when numerous states rebuffed its request for detailed voter data, including voter names, voting histories and party registrations.
Trump convened the commission after alleging that voter fraud cost him the popular vote. That’s despite past studies showing voter fraud is exceedingly rare.
Officials have said the commission will also examine ways to protect voting systems from foreign interference. But Trump has repeatedly voiced skepticism about Russia’s role in the 2016 campaign.
