A senior policy adviser of Trump administration Stephen Miller recently confirmed president Donald Trump’ claims of massive voter fraud, including allegations that thousands of voters were bused to New Hampshire election polls during the 2016 presidential election.
Miller said in an interview Sunday that anyone acquainted with New Hampshire politics can confirm that busing voters across state is a “widely known” issue.
It’s very real; it’s very serious,
Miller told ABC’s “This Week” host George Stephanopoulos.
The president’s aide made the claim after Stephanopoulos asked him to detail Trump’s remark that the GOP would
have won New Hampshire as well on Nov. 8 if not for the thousands of voters bused from Massachusetts to cast a ballot illegally in NH. Trump had also said that he lost the popular vote to Clinton because the dead voted. So, he pledged to order a massive probe into the matter.
The New Hampshire voter fraud allegations were made Thursday before a panel of 10 senators. In response, Ellen Weintraub of the Federal Election Commission blasted the president for making an “extraordinarily serious and specific charge.” Weintraub wanted to see the evidence for such allegations.
Do you have that evidence?
the ABC host asked Miller Sunday.
The White House official replied that that was not the time or the place to reveal all the evidence. He added however that voter fraud represents a “serious problem” in the United States. For instance, “millions” of voter are registered in multiple states along with noncitizens and the dead, Miller added.
Stephanopoulos, on the other hand, wanted evidence from Miller that people had been indeed bused into New Hampshire from other states. The ABC correspondent insisted on having the evidence.
Miller advised him to go to New Hampshire and talk with people involved in local politics to find his answer.
Everybody’s aware of the problem in New Hampshire,
the official said.
Stephanopoulos pointed out that the current administration had “absolutely” no evidence and yet he made those claims solely based on one of the president’s statements. Miller said the White House produced “enormous evidence” on people voting illegally or being registered in multiple states.
Miller added that it is an undeniable fact that a massive number of people who don’t have citizenship are registered to vote. The evidence includes dead people as well. The official added that the U.S. media should “stop the presses” and discuss exclusively about how people with no voting rights are registered to vote and are canceling out the ballot of lawful citizens.
Miller concluded that everything Trump said about voter fraud was “100% correct”.
Trump’s spokesman Sean Spicer has also alleged that millions of votes were illegal in the last presidential election. Last month, Spicer cited unnamed “studies and evidence” on widespread voter fraud to back his claims.
A Democrat from New Hampshire, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, commented on Miller’s allegations via Twitter on Sunday. Shaheen noted the claims are groundless and Trump himself stopped short of calling for a recount.
As everybody knows, Stephen Miller has no evidence of voter fraud in NH. This has been debunked. @realDonaldTrump didn’t call for a recount
