"There's something, there always is", President Trump said. "This Commission was formed as the result of delusion, conspiracy theories, and truly 'fake news, ' but it is having a very real and dramatically chilling effect on voter participation".
US President Donald Trump pressed his unproven claims of voter fraud on Wednesday at the first meeting of a commission he created to study the issue, and implied states that didn't share voter data with the panel had something to hide.
As vice chairman for the committee, Kobach has defended some of Trump's most outrageous, erroneous claims: for example, that three to five million people voted illegally in the 2016 election, costing him the popular vote.
Since defeating Hillary Clinton in the Electoral College and winning the presidency, yet losing the popular vote by almost 3 million votes, Trump has claimed 3 million to 5 million people voted illegally, despite lacking evidence to back such a claim.
Tur then asked Kobach if he thinks there's a possibility that Clinton didn't win the popular vote, to which he responded, "We may never know the answer to that question". It's not to justify, to validate, or invalidate what the president said in December or January about the 2016 election. However, the Arkansas Democrat Gazette reported that an attorney for Vice President Mike Pence's office told Arkansas election officials told to delete the information they had uploaded to a USA government server.
During the first meeting, Pence assured the public that the panel had "no preconceived notions" about whether there was widespread voter fraud in the election.

President Trump also stopped by the meeting, telling commissioners to keep an "open mind".
Part of his evidence for that is in the guy pegged as vice chair of the commission, Kansas Sec. of State, Kris Kobach - the same guy who wanted to require a birth certificate at state polling places. They also wonder why the White House appears more concerned with unproven allegations of large-scale voter fraud than the intelligence community's conclusion that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 campaign.
This not only denied Trump a credible claim to a mandate to his regressive agenda; it also hurt his feelings. Just to be totally clear: This is not a "he said, he said" issue. "Plain and simple", Emma Greenman, director of the Voting Rights and Democracy campaign at the Center for Popular Democracy, said in a statement Wednesday.
"I'm pleased that more than 30 states have already agreed to share the information with the commission and the other states that information will be forthcoming".
"And so it's impossible to ever know exactly if you took out all the ineligible votes what the final tally would be in that election".
