MI GOP Attempt To Award Electoral College Votes To Trump Referred To Feds

Michigan's Attorney General, Dana Nessel (D), said Thursday her Office has referred the Submission of a False Slate of Presidential Electors from Michigan Republicans for the 2020 Presidential Election to Federal Prosecutors.

As Michigan’s Presidential Electors convened on Dec. 14, 2020, to cast their Votes for Joe Biden, a Group of Republicans, signed on to their own Certificate that attempted to Award the State’s 16 Electoral College votes to Trump.

Law enforcement denied Access to the Group of Republicans, who tried to deliver their own Electoral Votes to the Capitol in Lansing that day, incorrectly arguing they were the State's Presidential Electors.

The Signatories of the Failed attempt to award Michigan's Electoral College Votes to Trump include: Michigan GOP Co-Chair Meshawn Maddock, Mational Republican Commtiteewoman Kathy Berden, Michigan GOP Grassroots Vice Chair Marian Sheridan, State Rep. Matt Maddock (R-44th District, Milford), and other Pro-Trump Activists in the Party.

Biden won Michigan by more than 154,000 Votes. Election Audits have affirmed Biden's Victory, and Courts Rejected allegations of Widespread Fraud as based on Conspiracy and Conjecture.

Nessel said her Office has been evaluating Charges, but decided Thursday to refer the matter to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Michigan. "We think this is a matter that is best investigated and potentially prosecuted by the feds," Nessel said.

The Decision does Not preclude possible Charges against the Republicans who Falsely claimed that they Cast Michigan’s Electoral College Votes for Trump, Nessel said. And her Office might still bring Charges, she added. "...under state law, I think clearly you have forgery of a public record, which is a 14 year offense and election law forgery, which is a five year offense," Nessel said.

"But obviously this is part of a much bigger conspiracy and our hope is that the federal authorities and the Department of Justice and United States Attorney General Merrick Garland will take this in coordination with all the other information they’ve received and make an evaluation as to what charges these individuals might make," she said.

Federal Charges could include Forgery of a Public Record for purpose of Defrauding the U.S. or Conspiracy to Commit an Offense to Defraud the U.S., Nessel said.
