Abbott: Trump’s ‘Not the First President to Say He’s Going to Look into Voter Fraud’; Obama Did

‘Barack Obama put together a task force of FBI agents and U.S. attorneys in South Texas to both investigate and prosecute voter fraud in Texas’

EXCERPT:

ABBOTT: "Well, Steve, as attorney general, I prosecuted about 50 voter fraud cases. There was an example of a case about a year ago about a woman who was in the United States illegally who voted multiple time in the Dallas area. But, Steve, here’s the real deal, and that is Donald Trump is not the first president to say he’s going to look into voter fraud. I know that Barack Obama did it. Barack Obama put together — Barack Obama put together a task force of FBI agents and U.S. attorneys in South Texas to both, investigate and prosecute voter fraud in Texas. And they prosecuted people and put them in jail. So voter fraud is real. It must be stopped. We need every tool to go after it."
