CREW requests all copies of communications from the Election Assistance Commission (“EAC”) sent to or from anyone within the Executive Office, concerning the termination of the EAC, as set for in H.R. 634 “Election Assistant Commission Termination Act, between January 1, 2017 to present; copies of all communication, including documents sent to or from any congressional office including, but not limited to Rep. Gregg Harper (R-MS) and/or staff, concerning the termination of EAC, between January 1, 2017 to present; copies of communication, including documents sent to or from anyone with the Executive office, to or from EAC staff concerning voter fraud in the 2016 presidential election, between January 1, 2017 to present; also all information received or generated by the EAC concerning voting unregistered or unqualified voters in the 2016 presidential election.
The requested records would shed light on the extent to which the EAC was advised of or involved in the proposal to eliminate the commission. Given the serious questions the president and other White House officials have raised concerning the integrity of the 2016 presidential election, their views on this proposed legislation are of great public interest and may shed light on the underlying motives behind the proposal.
