White House adviser Stephen Miller claimed Sunday that the Trump administration has provided evidence of widespread voter fraud, echoing claims made by President Donald Trump in recent weeks when he said fraud essentially denied him winning the popular vote.
“The White House has provided enormous evidence with respect to voter fraud, with respect to people being registered in more than one state,” Miller said on ABC’s “This Week.”
“Dead people voting, non-citizens being registered to vote … it is a fact and you will not deny it that are massive numbers of non-citizens in this country who are registered to vote,” he said.
In the interview, ABC host George Stephanopoulos hit back, saying neither he or Trump have provided evidence to back up their claims. “You have provided zero evidence of the president’s claim that he would’ve won the general—the popular vote if 3 [million] to 5 million illegal immigrants hadn’t voted,” Stephanopoulos said on the show before signing off.

After becoming president, Trump announced he’s going to launch a “major investigation” into voter fraud claims.
In a report from Epoch Times last week, there were widespread reports of irregularities during the election. For example, report stated:
In Florida’s Broward County, one of the swing counties, election employees were allegedly caught filling out stacks of stolen absentee ballots. This was described in a Nov. 3, 2016, affidavit filed by Chelsey Marie Smith, a former employee of the Secretary of Elections Department.
In Philadelphia, state Attorney General Bruce Beemer said his office was investigating a “pattern of voter registration irregularities” across Pennsylvania. CBS Pittsburgh reported on Nov. 4, 2016, “agents say a company called FieldWorks was paying people to register voters,” and “that company may have required workers to meet a quota.” Some of the registrations had addresses from non-existent locations, according to Republican Rep. Pat Meehan.
Meanwhile, political scientist Jesse Richman of Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia, said in a study said that as many as 800,000 non-U.S. citizens could have voted in the election. He noted that “6.4 percent of non-citizens voted, and that of the non-citizens who voted, 81.8 percent voted for Clinton and 17.5 percent voted for Trump.”
And Gary Miliefsky, CEO of counterintelligence technology company SnoopWall, told Epoch Times that “when [Trump] said there were 3 million fraudulent voters, I think he’s going to find it.”
Miliefsky said that a lack of voter ID laws could be the culprit, noting that 19 states have no voter identification requirements.
