President Donald Trump plans to create a commission on Thursday to investigate voter fraud and voter suppression, a White House official said, a move that follows Trump's unsubstantiated claims of massive voter fraud in the 2016 US election.
Vice President Mike Pence and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach will lead the commission, which will look at allegations of improper voting and fraudulent voter registration in states and across the nation, one official said.
Trump is trying to change the subject and distract from the Russian Federation, but in the bigger picture, this White House is also anxious to make it harder for people who are more likely to support Democrats to vote.

Remember, this was around the time Trump praised the now fired Comey for launching an investigation into Clinton's emails.
The commission is the official follow-through on Trump's unsubstantiated claim that several million "illegals" voted for his Democratic rival and robbed him of a victory in the national popular vote.

He is known for implementing Kansas' strict proof-of-citizenship voting law, which required individuals to provide birth certificates or passports to register. The commission is going to study the voting system and try and identify any problems, such as fraud or improper registrations, that might undermine public confidence.

For JCP , the company now has $887 Million of cash on the books, which is offset by $278 Million current liabilities. Perhaps, that suggests something about why 4.63% of the outstanding share supply is held by institutional investors.
Trump is following through on claims he made in 2016 that millions of fraudulent votes gave his opponent, Hillary Clinton, the popular vote. They warned that the panel would be used to lay the groundwork for stricter voting requirements that could make it more hard for poor and minority voters to access the ballot box.
Dale Ho, director of the American Civil Liberties Union voting project, said, "Signing a piece of paper will not make Trump's false statements about voter fraud true".
The issue of voter fraud has been batted around by both Republicans and Democrats in recent months. "These laws have had a disproportionate effect on the voting rights of African-Americans, Latinos, students, the elderly and low-income Americans", she said.
