Michigan’s attorney general, with assistance from police officers, will investigate people who claimed election fraud happened during the 2020 contest. A spokeswoman for Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel told The Epoch Times in an email on Friday that the Democrat will probe people who allegedly made false claims, with help from Michigan State Police, as reported by The Epoch Times.
The spokeswoman claimed Nessel decided to launch the probes on a request from Republicans in the Michigan Senate. A Republican-controlled Senate panel last month issued a report alleging it “found no evidence of widespread or systematic fraud in Michigan’s prosecution of the 2020 election.”
As reported by The Epoch Times:
A portion of the Michigan Senate Oversight Committee report focused on Antrim County, where the county clerk falsely reported on the morning after Election Night that Democrat Joe Biden had beat former President Donald Trump by thousands of votes. The senators said their review backed the position of Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and Antrim County officials, which is that the false reporting was due to human error and was ultimately rectified.
The committee recommended that Nessel “consider investigating those who have been utilizing misleading and false information about Antrim County to raise money or publicity for their own ends.”
“The Committee finds those promoting Antrim County as the prime evidence of a nationwide conspiracy to steal the election place all other statements and actions they make in a position of zero credibility,” it said. Continued Below
Benson said her office looked forward to partnering with Nessel “on this critical investigation into the real fraud that took place in 2020: efforts to deceive Michigan citizens about their vote with misleading, false statements about the accuracy & integrity of our elections.”
Attorney Matthew DePerno and his client, William Bailey, have raised money for a case brought against the county that alleged Dominion Voting Systems machines used in the county “were shown to miscount votes” cast for Trump, counting them for Biden. The case was dismissed in mid-May.
During a Friday interview on “War Room”, DePerno told host Steve Bannon, “The Michigan attorney general, yesterday, announced that she’s going to do an investigation using the force of police state in Michigan to come after me and other people in Michigan who have been speaking out against this election and actually bringing forth evidence of fraud that’s occurred in Michigan.” Continued Below
“We’ve put over 20 reports out so far, all backed up by forensic evidence, and now, the attorney general in order to stop us, has threatened criminal prosecution,” DePerno said.
Asked how can lawmakers go after him for trying to get to the bottom of an election, DePerno replied, “It appears the theory is because we’ve tried to raise money, that we are defrauding the public by raising money by using what they call the ‘fake information’. So that appears to be the theory that they’re putting forth. But no way it could ever stick.”
“The real reason Dana Nessel is doing this is she’s heard that I’m talking to other people about running for attorney general, so this is a political hit is what it is,” he added. Video Below
Attorney Matthew DePerno’s remarks:
DePerno also told The Epoch Times in an email on Friday: “Dana Nessel is a lawless Marxist. She is trying to stop our investigation into election fraud. She is also opposing counsel in the case Bailey v Antrim County and Jocelyn Benson. She is now using the power of the police state and her to actively investigate opposing counsel. This is unethical, unconstitutional, and criminal (see MCL 750.505). Dana Nessel must resign immediately for her unethical conduct.”
