Letter: Voter fraud is not substantiated

If our president wants to know why he lost the popular vote by so much, all he has to do is look in the mirror and think about his policy proposals.

No reasonable person believes his assertion that 3 million to 5 million undocumented immigrants voted against him and it would be a huge waste of money to even consider investigating it.

What really needs to be investigated is the proven interference of Russia in our last election. How did they manage to propagate endless lies in the U.S. about Secretary Hillary Clinton? Who collaborated with them in the U.S.? What impact did Russian misinformation have on voters, especially in Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin? Why did FBI Director James Comey sit on this information while making false claims about more emails 11 days before the election?

Wherever it leads — Americans should demand an in-depth investigation into how and why Russia helped to elect Donald Trump.
