**NEW** Michigan AG ponders criminal probes of state and local officials who bend to Trump [View all]

Michigan attorney general ponders criminal probes of state and local officials who bend to Trumpís will on overturning election results

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. --snip--

Tensions surrounding the White House encounter seemed to ease somewhat late Friday when there were signs the lawmakers would not side with Trump.

No details of the meeting were available late Friday. --snip--
A spokesperson for Nessel declined to comment for this article.
