Mr. Trump doubled down Wednesday on his fraudulent assertion that millions of illegal immigrants gave Hillary Clinton her 2.8 million-ballot victory in the popular vote, saying he would order a “major investigation” and tighten voting controls.

Of note, Mr. Trump’s legal team argued that there was no evidence of voter fraud when lawyers moved to stop the Midwestern recounts demanded by the Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

And the response from at least one Republican official in charge of state voting procedures, Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted, was swift:

Mr. Trump’s tweets will keep the focus on an issue that has already painted the new president as a liar. His press secretary, Sean Spicer, stood at the podium of the White House press room on Tuesday to publicly acknowledge that Mr. Trump believes a conspiracy theory about which there is no evidence.

But Mr. Trump’s Twitter threat pushes the issue into the policy realm. Voting rights advocates have feared the president’s flight of fancy could be a precursor to a broad effort to limit access to the polls, especially for minorities and immigrants.

The new foray into such a sensitive topic is not likely to go over well with Republicans in Congress, who are boarding buses and trains to disembark Washington for Philadelphia and their annual policy retreat — this time with a Republican president and vice president who are expected to attend.
