Republican Leaders in Michigan Rule Out Fraud, Refute Trump



WASHINGTON – Republican leaders of the American state of Michigan, who met with United States President Donald Trump at the White House on Friday, said they had no information that would “change the outcome” of the election in that state, yet another blow to the unsubstantiated allegations of “fraud” by the president.

“We have not yet been made aware of any information that would change the outcome of the election in Michigan,” the leaders said in a statement at the end of their meeting with Trump in Washington.

The delegation was led by Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and the Speaker of the House Lee Chatfield.

The delegation also added that “Michigan’s certification process should be a deliberate process free from threats and intimidation.”

The meeting of the outgoing president, who has not yet acknowledged his defeat in the Nov. 3 election against Democrat Joe Biden, with Republican lawmakers from Michigan was held as part of his efforts to reverse the election result amid allegations, without proof, of “fraud.”

Trump has claimed that there were illegal votes in the elections due to an alleged fraud in the vote-by-mail ballots in several states.

According to the New York Times newspaper, Michigan, where Biden won and which plans to certify the results on Monday, has become the prime target in the Trump campaign to alter the result of the elections.

Republican Monica Palmer, the chairperson of the four-member Board of Canvassers of Wayne County, where Detroit is located, told the Washington Post on Thursday that Trump called her on Tuesday, apparently to pressure her to change her decision to validate Biden’s victory.

Palmer said that the outgoing president called her in the evening just after she and her colleagues had certified Biden’s victory in their district.

The day after Trump’s call, on Wednesday, Palmer and the other Republican member on that county’s board announced that they wanted to withdraw their certification of the results, something Michigan authorities have indicated they will not allow.

According to the latest counts, Biden already has 306 electoral college votes, much more than the 270 required to win the elections, while Trump has 232.
