The White House intends to destroy voter data collected by the election fraud commission President Donald Trump recently shut down, the Justice Department said in a court filing Tuesday night.

White House Director of Information Technology Charles Herndon said in a declaration submitted to a federal court in Washington that officials plan to erase the information, rather than transfer it to the Department of Homeland Security or the National Archives and Records Administration.

Herndon also indicated that White House press secretary Sarah Sanders' comment last week that the commission's "preliminary findings" were being sent to DHS was inaccurate.

"The Commission did not create any preliminary findings," Herndon wrote.

Earlier Tuesday, lawyers for one of the former commission's members, Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap, asked U.S. District Court Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly to halt any effort to move or copy the voter data to another federal agency.

"The state voter data will not be transferred to, or accessed by, DHS or any other agency, except to the National Archives and Records Administration ('NARA'), pursuant to federal law, if the records are not otherwise destroyed," Herndon wrote. "Pending resolution of outstanding litigation involving the Commission, and pending consultation with NARA, the White House intends to destroy all state voter data."

As the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity was ramping up last June, the panel's vice chairman, Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, asked all 50 states to submit their voter rolls. Kobach also asked for information like partial social security numbers and criminal conviction data.

Kobach stressed that the commission was only seeking publicly available data. Still, dozens of states pushed back against the request, saying they planned to reject it in whole or in part.

The commission was also hit eight lawsuits, some of which charged that the panel was violating the law in collecting or handling the data.

When Trump disbanded the commission last week, he cited the suits as well as the refusal of many states to cooperate with the group's work.

Kobach told POLITICO last week that he expected officials in or overseeing Homeland Security's Immigration and Customs Enforcement branch would take over the voter fraud probe, matching state voter rolls against federal databases of legal and illegal immigrants.

However, Herndon's statements suggest that if DHS or ICE want to undertake an effort to examine illegal voting they will have to start from scratch, at least when it comes to obtaining the voter data.

Why though
>>
>>216918
We can only assume Trump has realised creating a list of how people voted is bad.

I would just be making up crazy conspiracy theories if I suggested they were hiding widespread voter fraud committed by the Republicans.
>>
>>216931
They want to destroy public voter data and some blue states refused to cooperate
>>
>>216931
Based off how the Republicans work, in that they accuse others of things they themselves are extremely guilty of, then yes that’s probably why they’re destroying the data.
>>
>>216916
Is there a better source for this then a blog? The first half makes it sound like they are destroying the data but the second makes it sound like they are consulting the NARA as far as what should be done with the data. Does anyone know the standard protocol the government for moving such a vast amount of secured data?
>>
>>216916
There's a couple possible reasons why:
The most tame scenario is that because the circumstances in which the data were requested from states were so sloppy and unguarded to begin with, the administration figured it would be better to just scrap it all since the Commission didn't even get anything out of it anyway.
The second, not mutually exclusive scenario is that the Commission did zero work (which has been rumored to be the case), and rather than risk embarrassing itself as Sanders said earlier they'd release a report, they instead said they'd burn everything.
The third scenario is that the Commission did some work and found something they didn't like -- either no voter fraud or evidence of fraudulent votes in Trump's favor -- and decided since there wasn't any enthusiasm to continue the Commission anyway, to burn the data.

All that said, the data still exist for each individual state, so it's not like if DHS wanted to make some massive study again they couldn't try. And remember that many states did not end up submitting all the data that the Commission requested due to privacy and legal concerns.

Politico is not a blog -- they have only ever done original verified or syndicated reporting -- they also publish a print magazine and are credited as one of the most influential journalistic forces in Washington today. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Politico

Can you cite for me when any prominent Democrat made the claim that Russia hacked voting machines?

I guess Democrats on the street are retarded.

The fact remains that no Democrat in a position of power has said it.
>>
>>217307
This guy certainly seems to be implying it.

http://www.motherjones.com/politics/2017/10/did-russia-hack-the-2016-vote-tally-this-senator-says-we-dont-know-for-sure/

Also, even if they don't explicitly state they believe Russia had the voting machines, they certainly don't seem to be making any effort to correct the dissemination of disinformation to their constituents.
>>
>>217336

Why would they? The entire left side of the spectrum went full fucking retard. The female jew senator from California, almost a year ago, said there was no evidence of collusion.

But CNN/MSNBC and the late night talk show hosts have been pushing the "trump - russia collusion" narrative EVERY SINGLE DAY SINCE.
>>
>>217469
As long as the general public believe it in their heart of hearts, they don't need evidence. They just need to make noise.

>voting machines
>this is what rightards actually believe
The tampering allegations concern hacks of the DNC and subsequent leaks that could have influenced the election outcome, nothing to do with direct ballot manipulation.
>>
>>217587
Could have. We'll never know. Content of the emails is more important anyways
>>
>>217587
No shit. Maybe you should read the reply chain and learn basic reading comprehension skills before jumping right in and making a fool of yourself

>argues against straw men on an anime site
>calls others foolish
I'm assuming there are no mirrors in your home?
>>
>>217587
that's conspiracy to commit investigative journalism lol

releasing true information is (probably) not a crime. instead you should probably worry about all the fucked up shit the DNC was revealed to be doing.

I'm pretty sure those are hair plugs in ol' Kobitch's head.
