“He’s announcing that Vice President Mike Pence will lead a task force on this,” Spicer said when asked about Trump’s accusations that 3 million to 5 million people voted illegally in 2016. The White House so far has not offered evidence that so many people filed illegal ballots.
“He named the task force, and the vice president is starting to gather names and individuals to be a part of it.”
Bob Bauer, who co-chaired the Presidential Commission on Election Administration, has written that election professionals should not be part of this effort. Marc Elias, Hillary Clinton’s lawyer, says no Democrats should take part.
