Trump lashed out after several states refused to release private voter information

0

Several states have refused to fully comply with the Trump administration voter fraud commission's information request. Needless to say, President Donald Trump is not happy about it.

Trump took to Twitter Saturday to ask what states are "trying to hide" from the voting panel.

The commission has reportedly asked for information beyond what is publicly available, like Social Security numbers, party ID and address of every voter in the United States.

Trump set up the commission in May, and critics say it may be designed to suppress voters.

"This entire commission is based on the specious and false notion that there was widespread voter fraud last November."

"This entire commission is based on the specious and false notion that there was widespread voter fraud last November," Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe (D) said in a statement on Friday. "At best this commission was set up as a pretext to validate Donald Trump’s alternative election facts, and at worst is a tool to commit large-scale voter suppression."

GOP Secretary of State from Vice President Mike Pence's home state of Indiana says state won't hand over personal info to Trump's voter fraud commission.

Connecticut Secretary of State Denise Merrill agreed to hand over publicly available data but expressed concerns about “a lack of openness” about what the commission was seeking.

More than 20 states have refused "voter fraud" commission's request for data, according to CBS News.
