Even though there were allegations of voter fraud all during the election of 2012 that saw Barack Obama return for a second term, no one in Congress or the media took it seriously enough to even look into it.
Fast forward to the 2016 election, we have proof that over 800,000 votes were made by illegal aliens, not legal United States citizens. You can read that full story here.
Senate Majority Leader, Mitch McConnell, refuses to acknowledge that Donald Trump is correct when he alleged that he lost the popular vote because of it. Now, President Trump wants an investigation into the alleged voter fraud but McConnell is standing in his way and refuses to allocate the funds for an inquest.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) said he would not spend federal funds investigating what President Trump says is “massive voter fraud in the 2016 presidential election.”
McConnell told CNN’s Jake Tapper that, although there are instances of voter fraud, he believes that it’s not “as widespread as Trump claims” and that combating voter fraud should be an issue “best left to the states” instead of the federal government.
“Election fraud does occur,” he told CNN’s State of the Union, adding that “there’s no evidence that occurred in such a significant number that it would have changed the presidential election.”
“I don’t think we ought to spend any federal money investigating that. I think the states can take a look at this issue. Many of them have tried to tighten their voter rolls, tried to purge people who are dead,” McConnell said.
Trump says he lost the popular vote by three to five million votes because of illegal immigrants in a meeting with congressional leaders at the White House, the Hill reported.
“Many people have come out and said I am right,” Trump said in an interview with Fox News’ Bill O’Reilly.
The establishment Republicans have been a thorn in the side to Donald Trump from the day he announced his candidacy and now that he’s president, it appears McConnell and his merry band of RINOs want nothing more than to block Trump, at every turn, if they can.
There is enough evidence of voter fraud to warrant an investigation, and McConnell should work with the president to determine the best course of action.
Trump is right to insist the investigation take place if for no other reason than to prove him true and bring the corruption into the light of day!
That would help drain the swamp much faster!
