President Donald Trump kicked off his voter fraud commission's first meeting Wednesday by criticizing states that failed to comply with the commission's requests to turn over voter information. Trump saids "one has to wonder what they're worried about."

Numerous states rebuffed the commission's request for detailed voter data, including voter names, voting histories and party registrations.

Trump said the commission will "protect" the nation's democracy and "uphold the integrity of the ballot." He insisted it would be nonpartisan and "follow the facts" wherever they might lead.

There is no evidence of widespread voter fraud in last year's election. But Trump signed an executive action to create the commission, led by Vice President Mike Pence, to investigate any improper voting.

Democrats have attacked the commission as a ploy to disenfranchise voters.
