Judge Stalls Effort to Make Trump's Voter Fraud Commission Meeting Public

A federal judge denied a motion Tuesday that sought to open the first meeting of President Donald Trump's voter fraud commission to the public.

The judge, Colleen Kollar-Kotelly, opined that the plaintiff, the non-profit Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, had not effectively demonstrated that Trump's commission has acted out of compliance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act's transparency and disclosure provisions.

Trump founded the committee, dubbed the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, after making a series of erroneous and demonstrably false claims that "millions of people" had "voted illegally" in the 2016 presidential election, costing him the popular vote.
