THE "MYTH" OF UNPOPULAR HILLARY. PART 2. The first meeting of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity.


(Hillary, Clinton, President, Woman

(The excerpt below was taken from an MSNBC NEWS REPORT.)
The co-chairman of President Donald Trump’s vote fraud commission on Wednesday cast doubt on the 2016 election results, saying he was unsure how many votes Hillary Clinton or Trump received due to the possibility of fraud.
“You know, we may never know the answer to that,” said Kris Kobach, the Kansas Secretary of State, who serves on Trump’s Presidential Commission on Voter Integrity, after he was asked by MSNBC’s Katy Tur whether he thought Clinton “won the popular vote by 3 to 5 million votes.”
“We will probably never know the answer to that question,” he added.
Clinton won the popular vote in the 2016 election by approximately 2.87 million votes. According to the certified Federal Election Commission records, Clinton received 65,853,516 votes and Trump got 62.984,825.
Kobach did not provide any evidence to support his statement. There have been no instances of widespread fraud reported in last year's election.
When Tur followed up with, “How do you say we may never know the answer to that question?” Kobach explained his rationale:
“What I'm saying is, let's suppose that the commission determined that there were a certain number of votes cast by ineligible voters. You still won’t know whether those people who were ineligible voted for Trump or for Clinton or for somebody else.
“And so, it's impossible to ever know exactly, if you took out all the ineligible votes, what the final tally would be in that election,” he added. “You can obviously, based on the data, you can make some very educated guesses.”
Kobach then admitted that some of the votes Trump received in November could be called into question, too.
“So are the votes for Donald Trump that led him to win the election in doubt as well?” Tur asked.
“Absolutely,” Kobach said.

WHAT SHOULD WE TAKE FROM THIS?

#1-  Donald Trump first made the accusation BEFORE THE ELECTION, NOT AFTER IT. THEN, AS NOW, HE OFFERS NO EVIDENCE TO BACK UP THE ACCUSATION. An "ASSERTION OF FACT" IS MEANINGLESS WITHOUT PROPER FOUNDATION. OCCUPYING THE OVAL OFFICE DOES NOT EXEMPT YOU FROM THE RULES OF LOGIC.

#2-  Read carefully the Quote: “What I'm saying is, let's suppose that the commission determined that there were a certain number of votes cast by ineligible voters. You still won’t know whether those people who were ineligible voted for Trump or for Clinton or for somebody else."

In order for the Commission to determine that a specific number of votes was cast illegally,THEY MUST BACK UP THIS CONCLUSION WITH SUPPORTING EVIDENCE. THIS INCLUDES THE REASONING THAT LED THEM TO THAT NUMBER, SUCH AS WHICH CRITERIA WAS USED TO ESTABLISH THAT AN ILLEGAL VOTE HAD BEEN CAST. 

#3-  MOST IMPORTANTLY: Do not to allow Donald Trump to turn this "Investigation" into something it is not: AN EQUIVALENT ENDEAVOUR TO THE CHARGE OF MANIPULATING BALLOT/VOTER COUNTS TO CHANGE THE ELECTIONS OUTCOME. 

There is adequate evidence that the final vote totals in at least 6 States show signs of Tampering, changing the results to favor Donald Trump. (SEE MY ARTICLES ON THIS TOPIC IN OTHER POSTS ON THIS SITE.) You cannot allow Evidence, (OR LACK OF EVIDENCE), OF ONE TO SUPPORT A CONCLUSION ABOUT THE OTHER. THEY ARE TWO SEPERATE ISSUES.
