The Trump Administration announced Tuesday that a public hearing would be held with the Michigan legislature on Dec. 1 to discuss the Nov. 3 election. According to a communications advisor for the House Republican Caucus Services, that isn't true.

The Trump campaign said in a press release that the Michigan, Pennsylvania and Arizona legislatures would be holding public hearings "in an effort to provide confidence that all of the legal votes have been counted and the illegal votes have not been counted in the November 3rd election."

“We are pleased that the State Legislatures in Pennsylvania, Arizona and Michigan will be convening hearings to examine the November 3rd presidential election,” said Trump campaign Senior Legal Advisor and Personal Attorney to President Donald J. Trump, Jenna Ellis. “There were serious irregularities, we have proof of fraud in a number of states, and it is important for all Americans to have faith in our electoral process. All we have wanted from the outset is to count every legal vote and discount every illegal vote.”

Denny Schwarze, communications advisor with the House Republican Caucus Services did not provide any further details regarding the claim of public hearings.

Since the November presidential election, the Trump campaign has attempted to take legal actions against the outcome. However, those attempts have been shot down by judges or even withdrawn by the campaign. President Trump has yet to concede to President-elect Joe Biden.
