Politico and The Associated Press reported that Trump made the claims Thursday during a private lunch meeting with a bipartisan group of 10 senators about judge Neil Gorsuch's nomination to the Supreme Court.

A former attorney general of New Hampshire is disputing President Trump's claim that voter fraud in the state cost former Sen. He told senators Thursday that was because of the "thousands" of people "brought in on buses" from MA to "illegally vote" in New Hampshire.

Ayotte was present because she is leading the "Sherpa" team that is shepherding Gorsuch during the confirmation process. "Allegations of this magnitude can not be ignored".

Trump said on Sunday he would put Vice President Mike Pence in charge of a special commission to investigate voter fraud, despite numerous studies showing that such fraud is rare in the United States. According to Politico, she lost her race against now-Sen. Last month, he falsely claimed that three to five million people illegally voted in November. Gardner said his office, which oversees elections, said there were 1,124 voters on Election Day who didn't have a valid ID and were allowed to vote after having their picture taken.

Serious voter fraud in Virginia, New Hampshire and California - so why isn't the media reporting on this?

A member of the Federal Election Commission is now calling on Trump to share any evidence he has to support his claim.

The president claimed that he and Ayotte both would have been victorious in the Granite State if not for the "thousands" of people who were "brought in on buses" from neighboring MA to "illegally" vote in New Hampshire.
