Forty-one states have refused Kobach’s request for voter information

Washington, DC (CNN) Forty-one states have questioned the Trump administration’s request for private voter information, according to a 50-state CNN poll.

State leaders and polling stations across the country responded to the letter with varying degrees of cooperation – to totally reject the request to express readiness to provide public information.

Secretary of State Kris Kobach, the vice president of the Presidential Advisory Commission for Integrity of Elections that President Donald Trump created by executive order in May, sent a letter to all 50 states on Wednesday asking for a multitude of election data That the notes were made available to the public.

The order came months after Trump has stated without evidence that millions had voted illegally during the 2016 presidential election when states began expressing concerns about the legality of their administration’s efforts to investigate fraud voters, Trump has Called Saturday on Twitter in question if they were hiding something.

The information requested by the Committee includes the full names of registrants, addresses, dates of birth, political parties, the last four digits of their Social Security number, a list of elections voted since 2006, information on Serious convictions, information about them being registered to vote in other states, their military status and whether they lived abroad.

The letter from the vice president twice only asks for “public” publicity information and Kobach clarified the details of his application Friday: “Each state receives the same letter, but do not ask if he is not available the public,” said the star of Kansas City.

But the commission, chaired by Vice President Mike Pence, did not seem to understand the laws that protect voter rights across the country. Each state that answered said they could not provide Social Security numbers, for example. Others said they considered information such as birth dates and party affiliations were private.

On the other hand, Kobach asked the States to provide information through an online portal. Many states have rejected this specific request, noting that the Commission must submit a request for information to voters through established state websites, as any other party would.

On Monday afternoon, three states – Florida, Idaho and Nebraska – still review the commission’s request. Three other states – Hawaii, New Jersey and Wyoming – did not return CNN’s request for comment.

And while seven states are still waiting for a letter from the Commission, four of them – New Mexico, Michigan, South Carolina and West Virginia – have already vowed not to provide private voter information.

Only three states – Colorado, Missouri and Tennessee – have welcomed Kobach’s attempt to investigate electoral fraud in their respective states.

“We are happy to request information before making decisions,” said Colorado Secretary of State Wayne Williams, a Republican. “I hope other federal agencies are asking people for their input and information before making decisions.”

Chris Christie flew close to the sun. Now, he sits under it, defiantly.

Legend of New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie in National Republican politics was forged on New Jersey’s coast, where recordings that were candy cottons were hoisted for the Republican base and for journalists.

“Get off the beach!” Christie barked in 2011, when Hurricane Irene is rapidly approaching the coast. A year later, while holding an ice cream cone, he met a person who interrupts Seaside Heights as a result of a conservative fiscal policy that plagued activists and donors.

But these electric days now seem like the old days for long Christie watchers. Its prominent profile simply stems from years of defeats and humiliations – punctuated this week by aerial imagery of one sitting on an isolated stretch of sand, flowing in a new cable loop.

Sporting flexible sandals and a baseball cap, Christie broke worry-free loose in the sun with his family at a beach house property in the middle of a statewide closure of government where he opened these beaches to the public.

The scene – captured in photographs from the air by the state’s largest newspaper, the Newark Star-Ledger – revealed elevated indifferent new challenge and hindered Christie’s political career.

This attitude led him to fame and the outside – and in the inner circle of President Trump, then aboard.

For those familiar with Christie – who is the country’s most unpopular governor, according to surveys – pictures of him among the dunes on Beach Island State Park were a reflection of what he always was: a flawed address that delights downtown Attention and deliberately ignore decorum.

“That tells me nothing I’ve known for a long time. He’s a paternal, a tyrant, and his nature is to fight, to fight, to fight,” New Jersey Sen. Richard J. Codey, a Democrat, said on Monday. Interim governor from 2004 to 2006. “I get along well with all former governors, but not with him.”
Former Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele said Christie was “Trump Trump before.”

“From the moment I met him at our first meeting in 2009 at the press conference on Monday, he was someone who is incredibly comfortable in his skin. He does what he wants to do and his success can be attributed to him,” said Steele . “But there are consequences, of course, when you work this way.”
Similar stories of his fanfare are Legion. Christie was used to take a helicopter from the 55-foot-long state police and his son’s baseball games.

He was invited to give the opening speech of the Republican National Convention in 2012, but has only a few words from the party’s spokesman, Mitt Romney. The Christie flavor for luxury travel was funded by foreign leaders and casino mogul. And his passing by the owner of the booth clapping his beloved Dallas Cowboys sparked a wave of ethical questions.

But Christie was not humiliated by his dwindling support or tends to maintain a lower profile in recent months. Instead, he was also dismissive and as firm as ever.

“He got the 15% approval rate, so he gives a giant middle finger to the people of New Jersey, sitting on this beach,” said Bob Ingle, a Christie biographer, in reference to the latest polls. “He’s so stubborn, so thin and he blames everyone but himself for what happened.”

ICJ order diplomatic victory for India but Kulbhushan Jadhav’s life still under threat in Pakistan

ICJ order diplomatic victory for India but Kulbhushan Jadhav’s life still under threat in Pakistan

Relief and diplomatic victory are great ways for India’s interim order of an international court on Thursday’s ban on Pakistan to execute an alleged Indian spy until the verdict is reached.
In addition, it is likely to strengthen the position of the Narendra Modi government that will do everything possible to secure the release of former Indian Navy officer Kulbhushan Jadhav the intervention of the International Court of Justice (ICJ) The Hague.
The 46-year-old man was arrested in Balochistan in March 2016 and a Pakistani military court convicted of espionage and sabotage in April. India has warned that it would be considered premeditated murder if Pakistan was to be an innocent man.
“The ICJ order was a great relief to the Kulbhushan Jadhav family and the people of India,” Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj said. India marked the diplomatic point against its rivals, but the danger to life Jadhav has not diminished, while Pakistan could reject the order of the court of the UN.
Pakistan remained defiant and is likely to challenge the ICC’s national security competence.
“As for Pakistan, the decision not to change the status of the Jadhav case in any way,” said the country’s attorney general.
Jadhav was sentenced to death for “espionage and terrorism” and has enough time to “ask for clemency”. “We are determined to insist on this matter to its logical end,” he said.
There is a fear that Pakistan may suspend Jadhav before the ICJ pronounces its verdict, although Indian Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Gopal Baglay said the international court order was “legally binding.”
“The order of the ICJ is clear and unequivocal positive,” he said.

NIA launches probe against Hurriyat leaders for receiving money from Pakistan

Key Kashmir separatists are likely to be under investigation for allegedly receiving funds from Pakistan to foment violence in the Jammu and Kashmir region.

“We suspect the money was distributed in the valley for various violent activities such as rock gliding and schools and government buildings of the torch,” said a high NIA, insisting on being identified because it was not authorised to speak about it.
Money, officials believe NIA, was moved by hawala – a system of money transfer across borders, which is banned in India. It is believed that the payment comes from the militant group Lashkar-e Tayyeba (LET) and strangers in Pakistan.
The NIA also check the allegations in an attack operation against some Hurriyat leaders led by the Indian news channel. The channel broadcast footage showing separatist seen talking to receiving money from Hafiz Saeed, the head of LeT and other Pakistani individuals.
“We issued an opinion on the information chain to provide memory devices and cameras used in the covert operation to check the content,” said the official.
The EP contends that the hawala route used to send money to Pakistan to sit agents in the Ballimaran and Chandni Chowk area in Old Delhi before being taken to the valley.
Violence in the Kashmir valley peaked after the assassination of Hizbul Mujahideen commander Burhan Wani in July.
Kashmir is sought as a territory of Pakistan, a conflict that sparked the last war that the two nuclear powers have fought in 1999.
