Where Is Trump Getting His Widespread Voter Fraud Evidence?

The Trump administration is starting its voter fraud investigation in July. But there's no known evidence of widespread voter fraud in the U.S.
President Donald Trump's Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity is set to meet for the first time in July.
The commission's main goals are to come up with recommendations that will increase the public's confidence in the election system and look for forms of voter fraud.
And to meet that goal, the commission's vice chair, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, sent a letter to all 50 states and Washington, D.C., asking for voter roll information.
The information on voter rolls that the commission is asking for is largely publicly available already and includes: names, birthdays, the last four digits of a voter's Social Security number, any party affiliations and voting history.
Kobach also asked each state to respond to a few questions. Those questions ranged from what federal election laws states would like to change to whether they had any evidence of voter fraud.
But there's not much in the way of evidence of widespread voter fraud in U.S. elections.
There is evidence of isolated voter fraud, but it's nowhere near the millions of false votes the administration is worried about. Only a few hundred people appear to have broken voting rules in 2016.
