PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Maine’s Secretary of State says that the now-disbanded voting integrity commission launched by the Trump administration uncovered no evidence to support claims of widespread voter fraud.

Democrat Matthew Dunlap on Friday released over a thousand documents he received from the Trump administration. He wrote to Vice President Mike Pence and Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach that the documents show there was a “pre-ordained outcome” to the commission.

Republican President Trump’s administration last month complied with a court order to turn over documents from the voting integrity commission to Dunlap.

Trump convened the commission to investigate the 2016 presidential election after making unsubstantiated claims that between 3 million and 5 million ballots were illegally cast. Critics, including Dunlap, reject his claims of widespread voter fraud.
