I mean the mere fact that several key states violated their own laws by edict of bureaucrat's and judges was enough to at least bring a case but the judges circled the wagon's.

It was enough to bring a case, and the Trump campaign brought that case. They just lost the case. The judges didn't "circle the wagons" - they simply disagreed with the Trump campaign's (and your) interpretation of the law. They specifically held that the voting procedures adopted in those states did not violate state law.

You can disagree with those rulings, of course. But it's hard to argue that this is 'fraud' (or that you need a Commission to investigate them). These were rules and procedures that were put in place, publicly, by the officials in charge of running elections, pursuant to authority delegated to them by the state Legislatures, and which both the authority and the rules were later adjudged by courts of competent jurisdiction to be lawful at every level of appeal. When voters and election officials then follow those rules and procedures, that's not really 'fraud.' It's just that you dispute whether the rules were lawful, not whether someone was committing skullduggery to avoid the rules.
