CNN released more untrue news about Trump’s Election commission
Other fake news outlets escalated the reports
Fake news reports from mainstream media outlets, including CNN, NBC News, Washington Post, and New York Daily News, have been called out for their dishonest journalism by the Vice Chair of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity Wednesday. President Donald J. Trump, during his first-ever press conference on foreign soil, boldly backed the message.
“They have been fake news for a long time,” President Trump said at the press conference with Poland President Andrzej Duda. “They’ve been covering us in a very dishonest way. Do you have that too, Mr. President?”
President Duda agreed and declared the media in the United States and Poland share “a lot of the same pathologies.”
“On June 28, the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity issued a letter requesting that states provide publicly available voter data as permitted under their state laws,” stated Kris Kobach, Kansas Secretary of State and Vice Chair of the Commission. “At present, 20 states have agreed to provide the publicly available information requested by the Commission and another 16 states are reviewing which information can be released under their state laws.”

“In all, 36 states have either agreed or are considering participating with the Commission’s work to ensure the integrity of the American electoral system,” Kobach’s statement, released from the White House, read.
“While there are news reports that 44 states have “refused” to provide voter information to the Commission, these reports are patently false, more “fake news”. At present, only 14 states and the District of Columbia have refused the Commission’s request for publicly available voter information,” Kobach stated. “Despite media distortions and obstruction by a handful of state politicians, this bipartisan commission on election integrity will continue its work to gather the facts through public records requests to ensure the integrity of each American’s vote because the public has a right to know.”
The dishonest media will NEVER keep us from accomplishing our objectives on behalf of our GREAT AMERICAN PEOPLE!

The commission is requesting states provide factual information about registered voters including: elections they have voted in since 2006, the last four digits of their social security numbers, if they have been convicted of a felony, and they are registered to vote in other states.
On May 11, 2017, President Donald J. Trump named Vice President Mike Pence as Chairman and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach as Vice-Chair of the Commission. Other members include:
- Connie Lawson, Secretary of State of Indiana
- Bill Gardner, Secretary of State of New Hampshire
- Matthew Dunlap, Secretary of State of Maine
- Ken Blackwell, Former Secretary of State of Ohio
- Christy McCormick, Commissioner, Election Assistance Commission
“This action by President Trump fulfills another promise made to the American people,” said Vice President Pence. “We can’t take for granted the integrity of the vote. This bipartisan commission will review ways to strengthen the integrity of elections in order to protect and preserve the principle of one person, one vote because the integrity of the vote is the foundation of our democracy.”

The Commission on Election Integrity will study vulnerabilities in voting systems used for federal elections that could lead to improper voter registrations, improper voting, fraudulent voter registrations, and fraudulent voting. The Commission will also study concerns about voter suppression, as well as other voting irregularities. The Commission will utilize all available data, including state and federal databases.

Kobach added, “As the chief election officer of a state, ensuring the integrity of elections is my number one responsibility. The work of this commission will assist all state elections officials in the country in understanding, and addressing, the problem of voter fraud.”
