“Judge: Trump voter fraud commission on ice till next year”

Josh Gerstein:

A commission that President Donald Trump tasked with investigating his own unsubstantiated claims of voter fraud won’t meet again this year, according to court records, fueling more questions about the panel’s future and its viability.

In an order Monday, U.S. District Court Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly said a Justice Department attorney told the court Friday that the President’s Advisory Commission on Election Integrity “will not meet in December.”…

The official would neither confirm nor deny reports that the panel might close up shop without further meeting….

The administration official who spoke to POLITICO on Monday said that despite the lack of a planned meeting, panel staff were hard at work.

“Commission staff are still working through materials obtained in the previous meeting,” the official said. “We made members aware of this. Some members have gone ahead and said there should be a meeting scheduled, but there’s still a lot of information we’re going through.”

It’s that last part that’s worrying.
