GOP Congressman: Donald Trump’s Voter Fraud Investigation ‘Undermines the Constitution’

Republican Illinois Congressman Adam Kinzinger charged on CNN’s New Day Friday that President Donald Trump was undermining America’s electoral system and Constitution by calling for a review of voter rolls in search of evidence for massive voter fraud.

“This basically undermines the idea of an election, this undermines the Constitution,” said Kinzinger, a frequent critic of Trump’s policy who refused to endorse him during the election.

“Just as I was upset about the Russian hacking because it’s an attack on the election system of our constitution, I don’t like this,” he continued.

Kinzinger said that without any evidence, people would only accept or refuse to believe Trump’s claims based on their own confirmation bias. “You have to show why you’re undermining the constitution… just show us the proof before you make the accusation,” he said.
