ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. House Speaker Paul Ryan says he "sees no evidence" that would back up Donald Trump's claims that voter fraud cost him the popular vote. At a White House reception of Congressional leaders Monday night Trump said that about 3 to 5 million unauthorized immigrants voting, had robbed him of a popular majority, according to media reports. Trump has also repeated this claim on Twitter-- since winning the election in November, saying "In addition to winning the Electoral College in a landslide, I won the popular vote if you deduct the millions of people who voted illegally." But he has not provided any factual evidence to prove it…And voting officials across the U.S. have found virtually no confirmed cases of voter fraud. Clinton won the popular vote by nearly 3 million votes. Trump won 304 electoral college votes to Clinton's 227.
