Schumer: Democrats eyeing ways to disband Trump's election commission

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said on Tuesday that Democrats are mulling how to disband President Trump's voter fraud commission, as the panel meets in New Hampshire.

"[The commission is] a nasty solution in search of a problem. The election integrity commission ought to be disbanded. We will be looking for ways to do that legislatively. The real threat of election integrity comes not from voter fraud but from foreign meddling and cyber attacks," Schumer said.

Trump created the commission by executive order in May to investigate his claims, presented without evidence, of widespread voter fraud in last yearís presidential election. But it's been beset by lawsuits and controversy, including a widely rejected request that states send in voter roll data.

Schumer pledged over the August recess that Democrats would try to link disbanding the commission to a must-pass bill.
