Fact check: Mail-in voting fraud is actually quite rare. Here’s a look at recent false claims and distortions by President Trump

Man bites watchdog. In firing one inspector general, sidelining another and assailing a third, President Donald Trump in recent days has put his aversion to agents of federal accountability on stark display in a country consumed by the coronavirus.
