‘System is rigged, must go to Voter ID’: Trump blames Democrats for collapse of bogus voter fraud panel

President Donald Trump is blaming Democrats for the collapse of his bogus voter fraud panel.

"Many mostly Democrat States refused to hand over data from the 2016 Election to the Commission On Voter Fraud," Trump tweeted Thursday morning. "They fought hard that the Commission not see their records or methods because they know that many people are voting illegally. System is rigged, must go to Voter I.D."

The president shut down the White House commission Wednesday, complaining that many states had refused to turn over information requested by the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity.

No states have uncovered significant evidence to support the president's claim that widespread voter fraud cost him the popular vote, if not the Electoral College vote.

Election officials -- including many Republicans -- in individual states have strongly rejected Trump's claims, and Democrats accused the president of using the panel to rig the system against them through voter suppression.
