The media is seething that Donald Trump is calling meetings with the folks from Michigan after two Wayne County election officials refused to certify Detroit’s crooked vote.
Michigan House Speaker Lee Chatfield and Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey will meet with President Donald Trump at the White House Friday afternoon, a source familiar with the plans told CNN, as Trump and his legal team continue to mount a long-shot effort to overturn the results of the election he lost to President-elect Joe Biden.
Trump extended the invitation on Thursday morning to the Michigan lawmakers by calling Mike Shirkey, the person familiar previously told CNN.
Trump and the lawmakers will meet at 4 p.m. ET, the source familiar with the plans said.
Shirkey has not responded to emails from CNN either, and his phone mailbox was also full.
Trump also called two Republican canvass board members from Wayne County to offer his support, the person said Thursday, after they went back and forth on voting to certify the election results from the state’s largest county, which includes Detroit. The board members filed affidavits Wednesday seeking to “rescind” their votes to certify the election result.
Certification is usually a formality, but Trump is trying to block or delay the process in key states as part of a long-shot effort to overturn his election defeat through the Electoral College. Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani and other allies have suggested that GOP state legislatures in battleground states Biden won should try to use a delay in certification to appoint their own slate of electors and ignore the states’ popular votes for Biden.
Two sources told CNN there are also discussions currently underway with the President about inviting Republican state legislators from Pennsylvania to the White House. It’s not clear if those invitations have been extended yet, but Trump has expressed interest in doing so as he tries to insert himself into the vote certification process. The deadline for counties in Pennsylvania to certify their totals is Monday.
He needs to have a big media event with officials from all of the contested votes.
Officials, by their nature, have authority. Currently, the masses of Americans are being led by the lying media to believe that every person in authority in this country believes in the Joe Biden hoax.
People need to see that many responsible, respectable people are aware that this is all a gigantic hoax.
