CBS News reported today,
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Sunday that he doesn’t think any federal funding should be used to subsidize any investigation that President Trump calls for into voter fraud in the 2016 election.
In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” the Kentucky Republican was asked if he wants to spend taxpayer money to hunt for people who voted illegally.
“This sort of thing is handled at the state level and the Democrats always claim there is no election fraud at all. That is, of course, not true. Election fraud does occur. There is no evidence that it occurred in such a significant number that would have changed the presidential election,” McConnell said….
In an interview with Fox News host Bill O’Reilly that aired Sunday before the Super Bowl, Mr. Trump said he has chosen Vice President Mike Pence to lead a commission to investigate unsubstantiated claims of widespread voter fraud in the election last year.
Last month, the White House had said that Mr. Trump would sign an executive action about voter fraud, but he has yet to do so. That came after the president repeated the unfounded claim that three to five million people illegally voted in the election last November.
