Early Wednesday, President Donald Trump announced that he would ask for a “major investigation” into allegations of voter fraud, which naturally sent liberal Democrats and their media allies into a frenzy.
The Socialist Party responded:
No President should be able to repeatedly lie their way into power and then expect to retain power. That is not democracy.

It's going to be hilarious to watch you justify the use of taxpayer money for this. You are completely unhinged.

Actually, Trump has every right to direct the Justice Department to investigate allegations of voter fraud.
And, according to a 2014 study co-authored by Old Dominion University professors Jesse Richman and David Earnest, somewhere between 38,000 and almost 2.8 million non-citizens voted in the 2008 election.
According to the Daily Caller:
“In spite of substantial public controversy, very little reliable data exists concerning the frequency with which non-citizen immigrants participate in United States elections. Although such participation is a violation of election laws in most parts of the United States, enforcement depends principally on disclosure of citizenship status at the time of voter registration,” Richman and Earnest note.
“We find that some non-citizens participate in U.S. elections, and that this participation has been large enough to change meaningful election outcomes including Electoral College votes, and Congressional elections. Non-citizen votes likely gave Senate Democrats the pivotal 60th vote needed to overcome filibusters in order to pass health care reform and other Obama administration priorities in the 111th Congress,” they continue.
But liberals, including many in the Democrat-media complex, maintain that there’s no such thing as voter fraud, and to assert that it exists is a conspiracy theory.
The Daily Caller added:
Richman and Earnest’s study has been contested by other social scientists and was the subject of a rebuttal article challenging their findings. That study, led by Harvard political scientist Stephen Ansolabehere, claimed instead that “the likely percent of non-citizen voters in recent US elections is 0.”
The Trump White House has faced criticism over President Donald Trump’s belief that millions of illegal votes were cast in the 2016 presidential election. Trump has declined to offer any evidence to back up his claim.
Which makes one wonder:
Liberals are outraged about an investigation of voter fraud…
But why would that be?

If there’s no such thing as voter fraud as the left insists, then why wouldn’t they welcome an investigation? If Trump is lying as Debbie Wasserman Schultz and others insist, why aren’t they pushing for the investigation? Would they not want a chance to prove their case?
Or are they really afraid of what might be uncovered?
