Michigan attorney general ponders criminal probes of state and local officials who bend to Trump's w

Michiganís attorney general is exploring whether officials there risk committing crimes if they bend to President Trumpís wishes in seeking to block the certification of Joe Bidenís victory in their state, according to two people familiar with the review.

The move by Dana Nessel, a Democrat, reflected a growing sense of unease among many in her party and some Republicans that the president was continuing his unprecedented efforts to reach personally into the stateís electoral process as he seeks to prevent Michigan from formally declaring a winner there.

On Wednesday, two Republican officials in Wayne County sought to rescind their vote to certify the election results in their county, where Detroit is located, after Trump called them Tuesday night.

On Friday afternoon, four leaders of Michiganís Republican-controlled state legislature met with Trump in the White House at his invitation.

The GOP needs to learn they cannot do this.

6. AG Nessel is boss, lock these clowns up.

From what Jonathan Kinloch (one of the Dem board members) said, these GOP officials were poll watchers in Detroit ie harassers of black voters and brought that mentality into what should be an impartial process. They specifically buy into the 'scary urban PoC stealing votes' narrative that Trump pushes. They are racists and cried like cowards when called out on it.
