Wednesday morning President Trump tweeted: "I will be asking for a major investigation into voter fraud..."
I will be asking for a major investigation into VOTER FRAUD, including those registered to vote in two states, those who are illegal and....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 25, 2017
even, those registered to vote who are dead (and many for a long time). Depending on results, we will strengthen up voting procedures!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 25, 2017
White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer indicated what locations they will be targeting in the investigation.
"I think if you look at where a lot of potential of these issues could have occurred in bigger states, that's where we're gonna look," said Spicer.
California is one of those big states on the list.
President Trump first put the words "voter fraud" and California together in a tweet shortly after he won the election.

California's Secretary of State Alex Padilla says he's seen no evidence of irregularities in the state's voting system.
"Calling for a massive investigation when there is no basis for it is dangerous, it is not productive," said Padilla.
House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi from San Francisco is also critical of the President.
"I frankly feel very sad about the President making this claim. Then I prayed for the United States of America, " said Pelosi.
On Wednesday, three leading House Democrats send a letter to each state, asking for a list of any known voter fraud cases during the election. They've given the states one month to respond.
