Views

A researcher for President Trump’s voter fraud commission was arrested last week on allegations of child pornography, the Washington Post reported Saturday.

An unnamed administration senior official confirmed to the Post that Ronald Williams II, a 37-year-old from Maryland, was working for the commission, having been moved there from the Office of Special Counsel.

Williams was arrested Friday, according to court documents, and was charged with 11 counts of possession and distribution of child pornography.

He was arrested after the police searched his home, the Post reported. Authorities had been tipped off via a task force on Internet crimes against children, according to the report. Law enforcement said they found “multiple files of child pornography” on Williams’ cell phone, according to the Post.
