LANSING, Mich. — A number of Republican poll challengers and Trump supporters testified in Lansing Tuesday, describing what they called irregularities and fraud during vote counting at the TCF Center in Detroit.
The claims they made to Michigan’s Senate Oversight Committee on Tuesday mirrored similar allegations in a now dropped lawsuit the Trump campaign filed in Michigan last month.
“The people are here today in the spirit of seeking closure and answer,” said one speaker.
Trump’s attorney and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani will make his case to the House Oversight Committee in person Wednesday.
“The president's attorney reached out to us and said that he wanted to speak and he had credible claims of fraud,” State Rep. Matt Hall, R-Marshall said. "He has people willing to give that testimony, people who've signed sworn affidavits who were there and have witnessed it. I believe it's important to listen."
Hall, who chairs the House Oversight Committee, says concerns from constituents warrant the hearing.
“I understand the Board of Canvassers certified the results, and in Michigan that's our process for determining the winner,” Hall said. "And so that's over. But this committee has been tasked with looking into the fraud that's occurred in our state, to try to see what policy ideas we can come up with to improve confidence in elections in the future."
“That’s what we're doing, and part of that is listening to the testimony of the president's attorney who says that he has credible claims of widespread fraud in Michigan,” Hall added. "So we want to hear those, and we want to hear the people who witnessed things firsthand because by listening to that we can expose any wrongdoing."
As of right now, there’s no evidence of widespread voter fraud that could overturn the election results.
Giuliani will present to the committee Wednesday at 6:00 p.m.
