Lansing, MICH. – At a meeting at the White House, the leader of the legislature said Sunday that U.S. President Donald Trump did not ask Michigan Republican lawmakers to “break the law” or “interfere,” with Joe Biden winning 154,000 votes in Battlefield state a day before planning to meet to confirm whether or not to confirm.
Midigan House Speaker Lee Chatfield met with seven Republican lawmakers with Trump for an hour on Friday amid his long-shot attempts to block Biden’s victory.
“There is this outrage. The president is going to ask us to break the law, he’s going to ask us to intervene, and it’s not happening,” he told a highly extraordinary meeting with Fox News. He did not elaborate on the issues discussed except to say that the delegation sought additional federal assistance to assist Michigan’s coronavirus response.
The Midigan Electoral Agency has recommended that the November 3 results – including Biden’s 2.8 percent victory – be confirmed by the Board of State Canvassers, which includes two Democrats and two Republicans. The Republican National Committee and the State Republican Party are seeking a 14-day adjournment of the board to investigate allegations of misconduct in Wayne County, the state’s largest and Detroit home.
If the board does not confirm the results and the Michigan Supreme Court does not order it to do so, Chatfield said “now we have a constitutional crisis.” He and other Republicans suggested that the will of the electorate should not be undermined.
“The Michigan Electoral Act clearly states that state voters must be appointed by the party with the highest number of votes – not the Legislature,” Stock Email said in a response to House Republicans sending people to their offices in response.
There is no evidence of widespread fraud in the 2020 election. In fact, election officials from both political parties have publicly stated that international observers have confirmed that the election went well and that there were no serious irregularities.
The issues raised by the Trump campaign and its allies are typical of every election.
Republican U.S. Republican Fred Upton, Michigan’s longtime congressman, told CNN on Sunday that “voters have spoken” and the state does not have a razor-thin presidential race.
“No one came forward with evidence of fraud or abuse,” he said. He called for the request to be delayed “beyond borders”.
