President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Thursday establishing a commission to investigate alleged voter fraud and voter suppression in the U.S., the Gateway Pundit reports.
The order called “Advisory Commission on Election Integrity” aims to review allegations of fraudulent voter registration and improper voting in the American election system.
It will create a bipartisan commission that will be chaired by Vice President Mike Pence and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach will be appointed as Vice Chair.
President Trump had promised an investigation after claiming there was widespread voter fraud that resulted to rival Hillary Clinton gaining 3 million more popular votes, although she did lose the Electoral College where it mattered most.
In a statement, Pence said, “This action by President Trump fulfills another promise made to the American people. We can’t take for granted the integrity of the vote.”
The commission is expected to release its findings sometime in 2018, according to deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders during the announcement of the executive order.
