Michigan Republicans who submitted a certificate falsely claiming that Donald Trump won the state’s electoral votes in 2020 could face federal charges

Sixteen Michigan Republicans who submitted a certificate falsely claiming that Donald Trump won the state’s electoral votes in 2020 are now facing a potential federal investigation.

“On Dec. 14, 2020, Michigan’s 16 presidential electors met inside the state Capitol to officially cast their ballots for Biden. A group of Republicans, including some of the GOP electors, attempted to enter the building, after meeting at party headquarters, but were blocked by the Michigan State Police,” the newspaper reported. “According to a Dec. 14, 2020, memorandum, obtained by The Detroit News, Kathy Berden, a Republican national committeewoman from Michigan, sent the GOP electors certificate to the U.S. Senate, the U.S. archivist, Benson’s office and Robert Jonker, the chief judge of U.S. District Court for Michigan’s Western District. The 16 Michigan Republicans who signed the certificate inaccurately claimed they were the ‘duly elected and qualified electors’ for Michigan. They also stated that they ‘convened and organized’ in the state Capitol, which they did not.”

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel revealed Thursday night that her office has referred the case to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Michigan.
