In a previous blog, I discussed Trump's interview with David Muir where he stated that 3 to 5 million votes were cast illegally and that every single one of those votes were cast for Hillary. Trump's repeated claims are in part based on the yet to be disclosed work of conspiracy theorist Greg Phillips who claims to even have the names of 3 million people who voted illegally.

I am going to drag and drop here excerpts from that discussion and then discuss recent developments on this issue.
Phillips was questioned by Andrew Cuomo about his findings. Possible source of Trump's mass voter fraud claim says proof is on the way - CNNPolitics.com I would recommend viewing that interview after putting your ideology in your pocket and viewing this cross examination as you would as a juror during trial. Is Phillips remotely credible?
He is just a guy, who worked in the 1980s and 1990s in the Mississippi and Alabama republican parties who has an organization somewhere called VoteStand. Maybe that is an just an APP that can be downloaded by disgruntled white men who discover illegal voting by non-white people at elections.
He has been making this claim, which Trump accepts as true, without providing anyone with proof.
NBC has some of this tweets from Mr. Phillips:
" No matter what Obama or anyone else says, the only entity that hacked election systems was Obama's Department of Homeland Security."
"The most tyrannical result of Obama's eight years was weaponization of Government against the people."
Biased? True Believer? Wing-Nut?
Birds of a feather flock together? I will answer that one. Yes they do.
I would also recommend reading the transcript of David Muir's interview with Trump.
Here are two excerpts:
Quotes From Interview:
PRESIDENT TRUMP: No, not at all because they didn't come to me. Believe me. Those were Hillary votes. And if you look at it they all voted for Hillary. They all voted for Hillary. They didn't vote for me. I don't believe I got one. Okay, these are people that voted for Hillary Clinton. And if they didn't vote, it would've been different in the popular." (emphasis added)
