During the recent Presidential election, the issue of fraudulent voting was a highly debated one.
Much of the debate comes from the fact Donald Trump did not win the popular vote, but that is argued to be due to the millions of people who voted illegally for Hillary Clinton.
Now one incident is being investigated which may prove voter fraud is not only real, but a real threat to our country.
President Trump has been looking into an issue brought to the attention of the White House relating to individuals who had voted in one state and were brought by bus into another state to vote again.
White House Advisor Stephen Miller, when asked on This Week by host George Stephanopoulos to provide evidence for the claims, provided a brief statement confirming an investigation was under way, but no details are being provided to the public as of yet.
“I can tell you that this issue of busing voters into New Hampshire is widely known by anyone who’s worked in New Hampshire politics. It’s very real. It’s very serious.”
“The White House has provided enormous evidence with respect to voter fraud, with respect to people being registered in more than one state, dead people voting, noncitizens being registered to vote. … I’m prepared to go on any show, anywhere, anytime, and repeat it and say the President of the United States is correct 100 percent.”
While the evidence for the case in New Hampshire and Massachusetts specifically is being kept under wraps during the investigation, supporting evidence for the case is being brought to the public’s eyes.
The New York Times reports:
Scott Brown, a former Massachusetts senator and a Trump supporter, told Boston Herald Radio in November that 100,000 Massachusetts residents had voted in neighboring New Hampshire that month, and that 40,000 had done so when he ran for the Senate in New Hampshire in 2014. “People from Massachusetts could have gone up and voted that day, and quite frankly some do,” Mr. Brown said. “It’s well-known, it’s no secret.”
The investigation of the matter in New Hampshire and Massachusetts is just one of many cases of illegal voting.
Some previously mentioned evidence of voter fraud came from a survey conducted by a subgroup of the Washington Post, a social-science blog known as Monkey Cage.
An analysis of survey data published on the Washington Post’s social-science blog, Monkey Cage, estimated that “6.4 percent of noncitizens voted in 2008 and 2.2 percent of noncitizens voted in 2010.
The mention of that data as evidence for the case of voter fraud came directly from a close member of Trump’s Presidential Team, Jason Miller.
Jason Miller cited two sources on the call, as transcribed by CBS’s Sopan Deb:”In particular, I’d point to the 2014 Washington Post study that indicated more than 14 percent of non-citizens in both in 2008 and in 2010 elections indicated they were registered to vote. … Some numbers include the Pew Research study that said that approximately 24 million, or one out of every eight voter registrations in the United States[,] are no longer valid or significantly inaccurate. And in that same Pew Research study, the fact that 2.75 million people have registrations in more than one state. So all of these are studies and examples of where there have been issues of both voter fraud and illegal immigrants voting. …”
