Classified White House Executive Order
www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/executive-order-termination-presidential-advisory-commission-election-integrity. POTUS dissolved the election integrity commission on January 3, 2018. Previous EO by Obama designated elections as "critical infrastructure" and allocated DHS authority. New announcement dissolving the Commission on Election Integrity hands the matter over to DHS who has authority to investigate it and make recommendations, effectively bypassing courts and typical challenges. It is a National Security matter and will be treated as such.

his official position, to unauthorized persons in advance of its authorized release date.
