Donald Trump announced today that he will launch an investigation into massive voter fraud. This comes on the heels of the claims that anywhere between 3-5 million votes were illegally cast in the presidential election, which he won. Of course whatever president Trump does will meet with democratic opposition, but what Rep. Keith Ellison has in mind is insane. The Muslim lawmaker is vowing to fight for the rights of illegal alien voters. No, really.
Trump met with members of Congress recently and stated that he felt he actually won the popular vote against Hillary Clinton if the fraudulent votes were subtracted. The liberal media went completely nuts over this claim, using the fact that there was no investigation into voter fraud as proof there was no voter fraud. Well, now there’s going to be an investigation, so I guess the liberal media, using liberal logic, will now report that voter fraud is real.
“I will be asking for a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD, including those registered to vote in two states, those who are illegal and even, those registered to vote who are dead (and many for a long time). Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedures!” Trump announced in a couple of tweets.
If there is one thing democrats hate more than charges of voter fraud it is an investigation into voter fraud. Rep. Keith Ellison responded to the announcement like this:
‘Major investigation’ on ‘voter fraud’ is about pushing Photo ID plus proof of citizenship to vote. Fight it NOW! https://t.co/gEodn2Ljhw

“Major investigation’ on ‘voter fraud’ is about pushing Photo ID plus proof of citizenship to vote. Fight it NOW!” Ellison wrote.
Okay, so here is a member of Congress telling people to fight proof of citizenship as a requirement to vote. This is beyond the usual democratic opposition to voter ID laws. Ellison wants people to fight for the “right” of illegal aliens to vote in our elections. I told you it was insane.
I’m not reading something into these words that doesn’t exist. Ellison very clearly states that he wants to lead the fight against photo ID and proof of citizenship requirements to vote. If he is against proof of citizenship, and he is, then he clearly wants people who are not citizens to be able to vote, which is illegal.
I’m not shocked that a democrat feels this way, but it is kind of surprising that one would publicly admit it. Democrats rely on, not only illegal aliens voting, but also convicted felons, dead people, and multi-voters. Their reluctance toward investigations into voter fraud is evidence enough that they fear the findings. Their resistance to Voter ID laws is based on how much power they would lose if elections were 100% legitimate.
