Judge Hints Trump Admin Misled Court About Voter Fraud Panel Appointment Dates [View all]

President Trump’s voter fraud commission has been dead for nearly a year and a half. But the litigation spurred by its lack of transparency continues, with a judge on Tuesday suggesting that the administration misled the court about the appointment of certain commissioners. The discrepancy appears to be the date the administration gave for the appointment of Hans von Spakovsky, one of the commission’s most controversial members.

U.S. Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly brought up the discrepancy in the lawsuit brought by a Democratic commissioner who accused the panel of excluding him from some of its work. She said in an order that internal communications about the commission she had recently viewed “raised a question about the timeline of appointments to the Commission.”

She mentioned a declaration filed “under penalty of perjury” in the court in 2017, by an official who aided the commission, that gave a “date that certain commissioners were appointed.”

Her order references a line in the declaration that indicates the appointment date of von Spakovsky, as well as J. Christian Adams and Alan King.
