The commission has been controversial from the start.
Officially, the commission is charged with examining the election system for causes of voter fraud - a narrative Trump adopted before the election and he continued developing that narrative after the election in tweets like this one from November 2016.
"I will continue to refuse to comply with this commission's requests for voter data because it would compromise the privacy of California voters and because the commission has no authority".
As the traditional host of the first-in-the-nation presidential primary, New Hampshire residents revel in the national political spotlight when voters head to the polls. Here's NPR's Pam Fessler. Tuesday's meeting, coupled with Temple's ruling, demonstrates that, in the Trump era, this judicial presumption of good faith toward Republican-backed restrictions on the right to vote should be obsolete. This commission has no preconceived notions or preordained results. But Pence, the chairman, and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach, the vice chairman, are Republicans. On the other hand, as Kobach states, "it does not allow the state time to assess the eligibility of the voter". Of those, only 213 have registered a vehicle in the state, leaving 5,313 voters who are not, as Kobach put it, "bona fide residents of the state". New Hampshire people aren't accustomed to walking away or stepping down from their civic duty.
"Making this equation that somehow people not updating their driver's license is an indicator of voter fraud would be nearly as absurd as saying that if you have cash in your wallet, that that's proof that you robbed a bank". Last Wednesday, the speaker of the New Hampshire House of Representatives, Shawn Jasper, a Republican, released data showing that six thousand five hundred and forty people had registered to vote using out-of-state driver's licenses.
DUNLAP: It oversimplifies the model to say that there's a direct path to fraud through the driver's license.
FESSLER: Still, the issue will likely take center stage tomorrow.
North Korea: Japan must not exist next to us
Despite being much smaller, the country appears to be trying to antagonize its enemies, especially South Korea, China, the United States and Japan.
Apple TV Is Finally Getting Support for 4K and HDR Video

Volkswagen plans electric option for all models by 2030
Muller confirmed that Volkswagen Group's "Roadmap E" will launch around 50 all-electric vehicles and almost 30 plug-in hybrids. All new gasoline engines will be equipped with a particulate filter across the board.
But perhaps the strongest argument against the legitimacy of the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, wrote The Atlantic's Vann R. Newkirk II, is the tendency for Trump and Kobach and other fraud inquisitors to make false, unverified, or disputed claims of fraudulent voting, then using those claims as evidence that anti-voter-fraud efforts are necessary, and when claims are debunked, citing that as a demonstration of the need to pursue the subject more thoroughly.
"These emails add to the mounting evidence that the commission has no interest in true bipartisanship or an open discussion of how to solve the real problems in our elections", the Campaign Legal Center said in a statement.
That suggestion generated some tough questioning from commission members, including Maine Secretary of State Matthew Dunlap. It seems to be that there are folks out there who don't want an answer to this.
FESSLER: Kristen Clarke of the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law says that's because people think the commission will distort the facts, that its real goal is to push laws such as strict ID requirements that make it harder to vote.
KRISTEN CLARKE: It's a commission that is about promoting this false and risky narrative that vote fraud is something that's widespread across our country, and we know that that's just not the case. "It seems clear that someone so inflexibly committed to his position on voting fraud, and so contemptuous of opposing views, is a poor choice for membership on a fact-finding commission - even this one".
Von Spakovsky did not respond to a request for comment.
Watch a live stream of the meeting below. "The Trump/Pence/Kobach commission does not represent the diversity of people across this country who deserve to have their voices heard at the ballot box". The entire enterprise was built on a falsehood - Mr. Trump's claim that millions of noncitizens voted in the election, a whopper so enormous and so often debunked that its continued circulation, particularly among Trump supporters, raises serious doubts about whether mere fact-checking and truth-telling can ever penetrate such a closely-held, hyper-partisan belief.
