White House counselor Kellyanne Conway wants to know why people are “afraid” of President Trump’s desire for an investigation into voter fraud that he claims cost him the popular vote.

Speaking on NBC Thursday, Conway said Trump’s claim that 3 million to 5 million people voted illegally against him in the election, for which there is no evidence, deserves to be checked out.

“Why not have an investigation? What is everybody afraid of? He wants to put his evidence on the line and have an investigation,” she said.

Conway first said there is “no evidence” of people being registered in multiple states voting multiple times, and Trump seems to be more concerned with the untidiness of the country’s voter registration system.

She then backed off that statement and said Trump does think people voted illegally.

“He’s claiming that people do vote illegally,” she said. “He’s claiming there are dead people on the rolls, he’s claiming there are people who are here illegally who should not be on the rolls.”
