During the question and answer portion of the Trump legal team’s press conference yesterday, attorney Jenna Ellis attempted to explain that no state should certify false election results. She added that the team of Trump lawyers are “happy” that the Wayne County Board of Canvassers has refused to certify their vote because 71% of the counting boards don’t balance.
A journalist jumped in when Rudy Giuliani said they had time for questions, telling the Trump lawyers that Secretary of State Benson says “That can’t actually happen,” adding that Benson is telling the media that the original “yes” vote made by the bullied and threatened GOP members of the Wayne County Board of Canvassers stands, and that Detroit’s vote will be certified.
The badass former federal prosecutor and Trump lawyer Sidney Powell, who was standing behind Ellis, laughed, telling the journalist, “Yeah, there are problems in Michigan,” adding, “Follow the money!”

Was Powell referring to a connection between Benson and Dominion Voting Systems? Stay tuned…
Red State– The Michigan Secretary of State is Jocelyn Benson, a 43-year-old Harvard educated attorney. Noteworthy is a professional life of liberal and progressive activism on voting rights issues.
Before going to law school, Benson earned a Master’s at Magdalen College, Oxford, in the United Kingdom, conducting research into the sociological implications of white supremacy and neo-Nazism. Upon returning to the US, she lived and worked in Montgomery, Alabama, where she worked for the Southern Poverty Law Center as an investigative journalist, researching white supremacist and neo-Nazi organizations. She also worked as a summer associate for voting rights and election law for the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund.
At Harvard Law School she was editor of the Harvard Civil Rights-Civil Liberties Law Review. From 2002–2004, she served as the Voting Rights Policy Coordinator of the Harvard Civil Rights Project, a non-profit organization that sought to link academic research to civil rights advocacy efforts.
When elected in 2018, she became the first Democrat to occupy the Secretary of State’s Office in Michigan since 1994.
Benson is also a board member of the hate group, the Southern Poverty Law Center’s Board of Directors, and the iCivics, Inc. advisory board.
Crookedness seems to run in the family of MI Sec of State Jocelyn Benson. Only 6 months ago, it was announced that her husband, Detroit’s Chief Development Officer Ryan Friedrichs [was forced?], would step down from his job with Detroit’s Democrat Mayor Mike Duggan.
Detroit News -Last year, Friedrichs was among three senior staffers disciplined by the city’s administration following a six-month probe by Detroit’s Office of Inspector General that found the mayor “unilaterally” directed city resources toward assisting the nonprofit Make Your Date and that Friedrichs and two other top aides abused their authority by directing staff to delete emails detailing those efforts, undermining “the public’s trust in an open and transparent government.”
WXYZ TV– Mayor Mike Duggan gave preferential treatment to “Make Your Date,” a prenatal program founded by a woman with whom he had a relationship and Duggan’s chief of staff ordered that city e-mails about the program be deleted, according to the city’s Office of Inspector General.
The OIG’s report also said that both Friedrichs and Abou-Chakra abused their authority. Friedrichs did so by “being complicity” in relaying the order from Wiley to delete emails, and Abou-Chakra by “reiterating the same order.”
The corruption of Democrats has been a never-ending problem in Detroit for decades.
