Trump lawyers cited Minnesota counties in affidavit about Michigan

Attorneys for President Trump’s reelection campaign filed an affidavit in Michigan that cited data from Minnesota counties, The New York Times reported Friday.

L. Lin Wood, an Atlanta-based lawyer working with the campaign, filed an analysis from ex-GOP congressional candidate Russell Ramslad which reportedly showed unusually high turnout in Democratic areas in Michigan, according to the newspaper.

However, when the conservative legal blog Power Line reviewed the affidavit, it noticed that a lot of municipalities listed on the documents were located in Minnesota and other parts of the Midwest, according to the Times.

“Evidently a researcher, either Mr. Ramsland or someone working for him, was working with a database and confused “MI” for Minnesota with “MN” for Michigan,” wrote John Hinderkaker, a contributor to Power Line.

According to the Times, he believes that incidences of fraud are not on the scale that the Trump campaign is alleging.
