“Our Country was based on Free and Fair Elections, and that’s what we must have!” – Donald J. Trump.
President Trump just blasted the Michigan Republican Chair of the Oversight Committee and the Senate Majority leader, accusing them of trying to “hide the truth” about the 2020 election.
The two Republicans say they found no evidence of fraud in the 2020 election even though a forensic audit has not been done and is the only way to prove there was no fraud. Red flags are everywhere in Michigan, and Republicans shouldn’t refuse a complete forensic audit unless they have something to hide.
Over 7.5 K affidavits were delivered requesting a forensic audit in Michigan. The response by these two Republican senators is a slap in the face to the thousands of Michigan citizens who want an investigation.
The statement released today targets Senators Mike Shirkey (R-Clarklake) and Ed McBroom (R-Vulcan). Trump claims the two state Senators were doing “everything possible” to stop another audit of the state’s election.
Local Fox 2 claims Trump “falsely claimed” the 2020 election was rigged. If a forensic audit hasn’t been done, how is this a false claim? Fox 2 cites the committee’s report and claims hundreds of audits have been conducted by the state. The big problem is a forensic audit has not been done.
The committee’s report claims they covered all of their bases by interviewing 87 people and looking at other allegations. That is not a full forensic audit.
Shirkey joined a local political hack to announce voting “reforms”:

Trump’s statement specifically named the ongoing case in Antrim County, Michigan, but Fox 2 editorialized again by calling the case a “conspiracy theory.” Michigan lawyer Matt DePerno has handled the Antrim County case.
The claim that Wayne County was the scene of voter fraud still hasn’t been investigated by a forensic audit, so there shouldn’t be a conclusion to what happened there. The report from Republicans even made the outrageous claim that the harsh and unlawful tactics used during the counting of ballots was “necessary to them at the time.”
These Republicans need to answer the people who want transparency via a forensic audit, so please call these two RINO State Senators!
