President Trump refuses to back down from claims about illegal aliens voting in U.S. elections — and rightfully so. In a rare admission, Brenda Snipes, a key election official in the state of Florida, admitted both “noncitizens” and felons have voted in Broward County.

Broward County Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes is defending her office against a lawsuit brought by the American Civil Rights Union, a conservative legal group that contends there are more voters registered on Broward’s rolls than there are eligible voters in the county.
Those rolls are said to be inflated with not only noncitizens and felons, but also other ineligible people who have voted illegally.
On July 31, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel newspaper reported that, in court, “Snipes acknowledged the processes her office [has] been using aren’t perfect and that some noncitizens and felons have voted despite not being eligible—especially right before major elections, when groups are actively registering new voters.”
Burnadette Norris-Weeks, a lawyer for Snipes and Broward County, said the statement was “blown out of proportion” and was in response to a question, rather than a statement of definite voter fraud in the county.
“This wasn’t a suggestion there was rampant voter fraud in Broward County,” Norris-Weeks told The Daily Signal in a phone interview. She added that suggested improvements were “no admission of anything.”
To no one’s surprise, Snipes is an ally of Hillary Clinton and reportedly met with her during the election.
Miami Herald reports:
As early voters in Florida started casting votes, conservative websites buzzed about new evidence of crooked campaign tactics by Hillary Clinton to secure the crucial battleground state.
The alleged scheme centered on left-leaning Broward County, already in the news for distributing some mail-in ballots without Amendment 2, a proposal to legalize medical marijuana.
The claims originated from Roger Stone, a Donald Trump supporter and former campaign operative who spoke of a “secret” meeting in an interview to conspiracy theorist and radio show host Alex Jones on Oct. 26.
“Yesterday Hillary Clinton shows up in Broward County — slips into a private meeting with the woman who runs the board of elections,” said Stone, who lives in Fort Lauderdale.
