President Donald Trump signed an executive order Thursday that will set up a special commission to investigate voter fraud and suppression in the USA election. With Vice President Mike Pence in charge, the order by President Trump sets up a panel of no more than 16 people, to "study the registration and voting processes used in Federal elections".
"If President trump can not believe that the majority of Americans voted against him, he should review his own conduct instead of trying to steal the vote from millions of citizens", said Pelosi.
At the time, White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer said the investigation wouldn't just be about the 2016 election, but "about the integrity of our voting system".
The commission, which will be chaired by Mike Pence, the USA vice president, will investigate allegations of improper voting and fraudulent voter registration in states and across the nation.
Trump announced in January that he would seek an investigation into voter fraud in the election, even though the consensus among state officials and election experts is that it is rare in the United States.
Using an executive order, President Donald Trump is establishing a special commission to investigate voter fraud, which he said was widespread in the 2016 presidential election.
Another core objection to the panel comes against Kobach, whom Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) dismissed as "an extremist".

Kobach's appointment to the co-chair the commission will certainly be controversial.
Like most of his promises, POTUS's probe into voter fraud has been delayed for months - until now!
In February, Mr Trump claimed he would have also won New Hampshire if it had not been for voters bused in from outside the state.
Kobach, for his part, claims that the commission had not been put in place to validate the president's allegations of voter fraud but would instead "go where the facts lead".

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach will serve as vice chair. "We can be babies, but you take a look at registration, you have illegals, you have dead people, you have this, it's a really bad situation, it's really bad".
Meanwhile, Trump was calling out the now-fired Comey for being a "showboat and grandstander".
