Trump's latest claim gets away from his insistence that millions of illegal immigrants voted in the election and instead focuses on New Hampshire, which he claims he would have won had it not been for thousands of voters being bused in from MA.
President Trump reportedly claimed during a meeting with lawmakers Thursday that out-of-state voters were bused into New Hampshire, costing him and Republican Sen.
It is not the first time Trump has made allegations of voter fraud without presenting evidence. Such an allegation would mean that thousands of people illegally voted in New Hampshire - a felony under New Hampshire law, commissioner Ellen L. Weintraub said in a statement Friday afternoon. "The President has issued an extraordinarily serious and specific charge".
New Hampshire allows voters to register on Election Day, and requires voters to have a valid ID and sign an affidavit.
Gardner said his office sent follow-up letters last month seeking confirmation of the voters' residences.
Gardner said he would welcome an official investigation aimed at clearing up any doubts. "I've not had any reason to believe that this is widespread". Earlier this week Trump alleged that thousands of voters from MA had been successful in illegally voting in New Hampshire.
Weintraub is a Democratic member of the six-member commission that is tasked with overseeing campaign finance rules and providing information on federal elections.
New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph Foster told WMUR.com: "We have seen no evidence of large-scale voter fraud whatsoever, and none has been brought to our attention".
