White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Wednesday that Trump had chose to disband the commission "rather than engage in endless legal battles at taxpayer expense".
"The [White House] commission requested states' public voter roll data".
The panel was headed by Vice President Mike Pence, along with Kris Kobach, who as Kansas Secretary of State runs elections in that state and who has long urged new voting restrictions.
The president also directed the Department of Homeland Security "to review its findings and determine next courses of action".
Whatever Bannon's role might have been in advocating for the commission, its work continued after he left the White House, and its mission appeared to be lending credence to the president's dubious claims about the size of his election victory.
Kobach, the vice chairman of the commission, said the investigation will move forward without the procedural requirements governing federal advisory committees. He claimed more than 3 million people voted illegally.
