Elections Commissioner Demands Trump Prove Outrageous Voter Fraud Claims

"The President has issued an extraordinarily serious and specific charge", Weintraub said in a statement that she tweeted on Friday. "Allegations of this magnitude can not be ignored", she said.

Trump's claim would mean that thousands of people voted illegally in the state, which is a felony under New Hampshire law. Weintraub further noted the seriousness and specificity of the allegations, urging Trump to share his evidence, so that an investigation can commence.

As President Donald Trump hurls unfounded allegations of colossal fraud in last fall's election, lawmakers in at least 20 states are pushing to make it harder to register or to vote.

The Politico report focuses on a recent meeting between Trump and ten senators about his nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court.

The president, who has frequently claimed voter fraud occurred during the 2016 race, was reportedly met with silence after his remarks, according to one source who was present. Politico reported that Mr. Trump told a group of 10 senators a day earlier that he and Ayotte would have won in New Hampshire past year if it weren't for the "thousands" of people who were "brought in on buses" from MA to vote illegally in their neighboring state. Kelly Ayotte, who has handled Gorsuch's confirmation process for the White House.

The president claimed that he and Ayotte both would have been victorious in the Granite State if not for the "thousands" of people who were "brought in on buses" from neighboring MA to "illegally" vote in New Hampshire.

Trump reportedly blamed voter fraud for why both he and former Sen. Hassan beat Ayotte by less than 1,000 votes. Now a Federal Election Commission official wants Trump to prove it.
