From: Dartunorro Clark

To Whom It May Concern:

This is a request for the Freedom of Information Act. I hereby request the following records:

Any and all emails, memos, notes, drafts, departmental strategies and policy plans and other documents related to President Donald Trump's termination of his Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity and transitioning its work to examine voter fraud in the American election system to the Department of Homeland Security.

President Trump on Jan. 3 ordered DHS to examine alleged voter fraud. White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders reiterated the president's order on Jan. 4 when she told the public that the administration would continue its voter fraud review and would “send the preliminary findings from the commission to the Department of Homeland Security and make determinations on the best way forward from that point.”

Sanders's full exchange is below:
MS. SANDERS: Look, we’re still going to continue to review the best way forward. Just because the election commission is no longer in existence, we are going to send the preliminary findings from the commission to the Department of Homeland Security and make determinations on the best way forward from that point.
Question: And on that, why the DHS instead of the DOJ, which would seem to be more of an investigative body?
MS. SANDERS: That was the agency that was best determined by the administration. And we’re moving forward and letting them take over the process.

It is in the public's interest for DHS to disclose any and all plans for probing voter fraud in the American election system and how it plans to execute such as task.

The requested documents will be made available to the general public, and this request is not being made for commercial purposes.

In the event that there are fees, I would be grateful if you would inform me of the total charges in advance of fulfilling my request. I would prefer the request filled electronically, by e-mail attachment if available or CD-ROM if not.

Thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response to this request within 20 business days, as the statute requires.

Sincerely,

Dartunorro Clark
