CONYERS on Trump’s Voter Fraud Claims: Let’s Focus On Facts

Conyers on Trump’s Voter Fraud Claims: Let’s Focus On Facts

Washington, DC – House Judiciary Committee Ranking Member John Conyers, Jr. (D-MI) today released the following statement in response to President Donald Trump’s statements on voter fraud:

Dean of the U.S. House
of Representatives
John Conyers, Jr.
“As the only Member in the Congress who was present when the Voting Rights Act was first enacted in 1965, and as a Member who has devoted his entire career to the cause of protecting voting rights, I was shocked to learn that even after taking the oath of office as President, Mr. Trump would choose to spread untruths and misinformation concerning allegations of voter fraud.  Repeated investigations have failed to uncover material issues in federal elections. There is, however, evidence of extensive voter suppression practices aimed at minority voters, which is backed up by active litigation.  At this point in his term, the President should focus on facts and get on with the serious business of government, rather than relying on discredited conspiracy theories.”
