Rudy Giuliani, President Donald Trump's personal lawyer and the man in charge of Trump's fight to overturn election results in several states, appeared in front of the Michigan House Oversight Committee on Wednesday.

Committee Chair Rep. Matt Hall, a Republican from Marshall, announced Tuesday that he will appear in-person in front of the committee. Previously, Giuliani was invited to submit written testimony.

According to Hall, the point of having Giuliani there is to get answers and provide information regarding election security and transparency.

“We can go a long way to achieving this by going straight to the top. Mr. Giuliani believes there were many problems with how this election was conducted and has alleged that there was significant fraud in Michigan," Hall said. "I am glad we were able to find time to make this work with the President’s legal team."

Democratic Rep. Darrin Camilleri, who is also on the committee, tweeted out in response to the news, "Looks like every sentence before our committee tomorrow will be a noun, a verb, and a conspiracy theory."

The hearing came one day after the Michigan Senate Oversight Committee held hearings over absentee voting in Detroit.
