Democrats took to Twitter on Wednesday to celebrate President Donald Trump's disbanding of his embattled voter fraud commission, with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer saying the panel "never had anything to do with election integrity."

Here are posts from the fourth-term New Yorker:

Trump dissolved the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, citing via a White House statement lack of cooperation from state election officials and the numerous lawsuits that had been filed against the panel.

"Despite substantial evidence of voter fraud many, states have refused to provide the Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity with basic information relevant to its inquiry," the statement said.

"Rather than engage in endless legal battles at taxpayer expense, [Wednesday] I signed an executive order to dissolve the commission and have asked the Department of Homeland Security to review these issues and determine the next course of action."

Trump created the commission last year after alleging he lost the popular vote to Democrat Hillary Clinton because of as many as 5 million illegally cast votes.

Eight lawsuits are pending against the panel in federal court. It was headed by Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach.

Other Democrats and liberal groups also tweeted about the commission's demise:
