Court rejects challenge to Trump voter fraud panel

A federal appeals court on Tuesday rejected a legal challenge to President Trump's voter fraud panel, ruling that the group behind the lawsuit, the Electronic Privacy Information Center, is "not a voter" and has no standing to sue, Reuters reported Tuesday. President Trump, who has claimed without evidence that thousands of people voted illegally last year, created the bipartisan Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity by executive order in May. Judge Stephen Williams wrote that EPIC "has suffered no informational or organizational injury from the defendants' attempt to collect voter data." EPIC President Marc Rotenberg called the decision "surprising," The Hill reported.
