I found the fraud Donald Trump is looking for!

Jan 26, 2017, 6:12 AM | Updated: 9:02 am

This is the first time I can remember hearing news anchors routinely calling out a sitting president for making stuff up.

ABC’s David Muir told Donald Trump to his face that the voter fraud the president is alleging isn’t real.

“What you have presented so far has been debunked,” he told the president.

And yet Trump still insists that a report by the Pew Research Center contains proof of voter fraud. And when you tell Trump that it doesn’t, he says this: “Excuse me, then why did he write the report?”

Trump said the author of the report was “groveling.”

Well CNN talked to David Becker, the guy who directed the research for the Pew report. Becker says it was released in February of 2012 and that report made no findings with regard to fraud whatsoever.

That’s the opposite of groveling, Mr. President. In fact, the word fraud occurs exactly once in that report, warning that sloppy voter registration records could make people think there’s fraud.

But let me help out.

There is another report that actually does allege voter fraud. I’ve even tweeted a link! It was published last September by the Virginia Voters Alliance, along with copies of canceled voter registrations, and it does allude to evidence that some of these people did vote.

There’s only one reason I can think of that you might not want to quote the Virginia report. Which is that even though it was done by a conservative organization, it found only about 200 possibly fraudulent votes. Not 24 million.

I think a thorough investigation into voter fraud is an excellent idea. But I am beginning to wonder whether you really do.
