Michigan lawmakers rebuff Trump after White House meeting

Michigan lawmakers rebuff Trump after White House meeting 1


Members of the Michigan state legislature's Republican leadership who met with President Donald Trump at the White House Friday afternoon said they "have not yet been made aware of any information that would change the outcome of the election in Michigan."
The Michigan lawmakers — who visited the White House at the invitation of the President — didn't say anything to suggest they were going along with Trump's long-shot effort to overturn the results of the election he lost to President-elect Joe Biden.
"As legislative leaders, we will follow the law and follow the normal process regarding Michigan's electors, just as we have said throughout this election," Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and Michigan House Speaker Lee Chatfield said in a joint statement after the meeting.
A person familiar with Friday's meeting said the session was cordial as the group explained to the President the process for certifying the election and assigning electors in their state.
"Michigan's certification process should be a deliberate process free from threats and intimidation," the lawmakers said in their statement. "Allegations of fraudulent behavior should be taken seriously, thoroughly investigated, and if proven, prosecuted to the full extent of the law. And the candidates who win the most votes win elections and Michigan's electoral votes. These are simple truths that should provide confidence in our elections."
Trump did not apply any overt pressure on the lawmakers to try and shift electors from Biden to himself, or to prevent the vote from being certified, the person familiar with the meeting said, but the President did appear interested in the explanation the lawmakers offered.

  1. Hey a couple republicans decided to grow a spine and choose their country over their party. Now that’s news.

    • @Kenneth Bullock it’s takes time, it’s only been two weeks. How do you know all that his attorneys have ? They aren’t going to go public with everything. So since you have it all figured out , why were the republican canvassers not allowed in during the counts , and why did they board up windows outside of the building? And why did Biden’s lead shoot up at three in the morning after the counting was already stopped ?

    • @Like Father Like Son your comment is all-over-the-place. The virus IS real. A lock is to prevent the spread. Nobody wants to shutdown. The advisors who echo Trump’s lies and play down covid-19 could be considered takers of brides too. The reality is death. And covid is not going away . .

    • @Theresa Romero Hundreds of thousands of republicans around the country voted BIDEN. Add those votes with the independents and Biden has 6 + mil votes than Trump….Not a close election despite Trump still saying he won…The republican party does not really want to be associated with the Trumpsters

    • Don’t trade with the CCP only for money just like what Biden and the Democratic Party did! Please support the President Trump who is fighting against the Nazi CCP and protecting the justice and free! The CNN and other mainstream media bought by the CCP sold out their souls and humanity as well as American interests, they will go to the hell! God bless Trump and kind people! We should be united to destroy the RED NAZI CCP! Biden is the criminal and the sinner of history!

    • @Hush Whisper Hush, come up out of the basement. Get some fresh air and sunshine. Stay off QAnon websites and limit the screen time unless it’s binging on The Office or Modern Family. In short, deprogram yourself.

  2. They are not crazy, because they know their reputation is on the line.

    People who cheat need to be outed whoever they may be.

    • @********** I believe this is what Dumb Donald is afraid of, welcome to reality Mr. Trump.

    • @Tylorian stay in your bubble

    • @Yousavedbro Heaven Bound this is pathetic, sad and fucking hilarious all at the same time..
      Our founders put forth and wanted a Separation of Church and State.. thanks W for fucking that up..
      Your blind allegiance will only lead you and the rest of your demented “Cult” down the Golden path to hell..

      @Larry Johnson would Republicans feel better if they were given participation trophies? They love to accuse lefties of coddling kids by giving out participation trophies but it seems like they can’t take their own advice and accept losing something.

      @Michael Anderson totally I can’t agree with anyone that claims to believe in evidence when they believe a man in a dress is a woman without evidence.
