Presumed source of Trump’s election-fraud data says he might publish names of illegal voters online

The supposed source for President Donald Trump’s claim that 3 million to 5 million illegal votes were cast in the 2016 election has announced that he may release the names of those voters.
“If I had my druthers, and they said, ‘Gregg, you can release your list or you can give it to [the Department of Justice],’ I’d instantly agree to give it over to DOJ. They could bump it up against the Homeland Security file,” Gregg Phillips told the Daily Beast on Tuesday. “There’s a group of us who don’t think we should release the names at all.”
Phillips said that, as of now, releasing the names is what he intends to do.
Phillips, a former Texas Health and Human Services Commission deputy commissioner, gained attention in November when he tweeted that he had proof that 3 million votes were cast illegally. President Donald Trump has since used Phillips’ claim as evidence for his allegations of a skewed popular vote count.
Now Phillips, on the heels of Trump once again touting voter fraud and calling for an investigation, says he may make the names of those illegal voters public by publishing them online. But there’s a hitch — according to the Daily Beast, no one has seen the data but Phillips himself. Read more here:
