A member of the Federal Election Commission has accused President Trump of threatening democracy with his unproven allegations of voter fraud and asked him to show evidence if he has any.
Ellen Weintraub, a Democratic commissioner at the agency, sent him a scathing letter Wednesday, calling on the president to produce evidence that illegal ballots were cast in last year’s election.
“This allegation of a vast conspiracy … has deeply disturbed citizens throughout America,” she wrote. “Our democracy depends on the American people’s faith in our elections. Your voter fraud allegations run the risk of undermining that faith.”
