Why are Democrats afraid of a vote fraud investigation

Deroy Murdock:
Three days into President Donald J. Trump’s action-packed first week in office, he promised “a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD,” as he explained Wednesday morning, via Twitter. This will include “those registered to vote in two states, those who are illegal and even those registered to vote who are dead (and many for a long time). Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedures!”


This impending probe follows Trump’s private remarks to congressional leaders Monday night that some 3 to 5 million illegal ballots cost him the popular vote last November 8.


Democrats, in response, are foaming at their mouths, although one wonders if they have any foam left. How odd. They should welcome this examination. If voter fraud really is a fevered, baseless, Right-wing fantasy, as they reliably insist, this investigation will vindicate them and make Trump look like a cranky, paranoid conspiracist. Liberals should smile and egg Trump on.


Instead, Rep. Adam Schiff (D–CA) warns, “Our new president is doing deep damage to himself and to our country.” Regarding Trump’s plan, U.S. Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN) insists: “Fight it NOW!”


Democrats and their sentinels in the Old Guard media unconvincingly argue that Trump offers “no evidence” of voter fraud, so don’t investigate. This total non-sequitur is akin to a doctor looking into a patient’s eyes and saying, “I see no evidence of lung cancer, so let’s skip that chest x-ray.”

In their hearts, the Left knows Trump is right, at least on the existence of voter fraud. And that’s what terrifies them. His investigation will highlight the fraud that exists and, furthermore, show whether these problems are as pervasive as Trump believes.
...
What they really fear is getting caught cheating.  Their arguments against voter integrity laws are racists and specious.  Blacks and Hispanics are perfectly capable of getting an ID.  They do it all the time.

Democrats are the same party that launched an investigation of whether Vice President nominee George H. W. Bush flew on an SR-71 to Europe to meet with Iranians to tell them not to release the hostages until after the election of Reagan.

I would be willing to bet that the possibility of finding vote fraud is much greater than a then civilian getting to ride on an SR-71 for a secret meeting with Iran.
