CNN reporter debunks Giuliani's dangerous and false claims

Later, Sasse spoke to reporters on Capitol Hill and criticized a lengthy Thursday press conference in which Rudy Giuliani, Trump's personal lawyer, continuously spread misinformation and made unsubstantiated claims about a coordinated attempt by officials in several cities to "steal" the election.

State lawmakers are being told to defy the popular mandate that the Joe Biden-Kamala Harris ticket won and award Michigan's 16 electoral votes to Trump on the grounds the election was tainted, a contention Trump's team has been unable to prove in court.

Rick Hasen, an election law expert and professor who has been meticulously chronicling the 2020 race, wrote that there would be "rioting" in the streets if an effort was made to set aside the vote in MI, calling it tantamount to an attempted coup.

Some Republicans have also spoken out.

Michigan's state legislative leaders, Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and House Speaker Lee Chatfield, both Republicans, will visit the White House at Trump's request, according to a source in MI. In fact, he has not released a statement about why exactly he is meeting with the President.

But let's be real.

On Wednesday, The Washington Post reported that Trump and his team had given up hope of overturning the election result with their lawsuits, and have settled on a new plan to stall the final vote announcement long enough to throw Biden's victory into doubt.

Shirkey and Trump are discussing collaborating on a coup. When Congress meets on January 6 to count the votes, it's possible Vice President Mike Pence, as president of the Senate, may throw out both sets of a state's electors. Legal experts said legislators could pass a resolution saying the election was so marred by irregularities that the outcome could not be determined and then proceed to appoint their own electors.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters that the meeting with MI officials was "not an advocacy meeting" and insisted Trump "routinely meets with lawmakers from across the country".

Announcing his decision, the judge said that the meaning he had determined was "substantially the same as the claimant's meaning". Rebekah's denied the accusations, and says she "suffered extreme distress and embarrassment as a result".

The original count put Biden's advantage at over 14,000 votes.

Some Republicans, angered at Mr. Trump's loss in the state, have also directed their ire at Mr. Kemp, who is one of the president's staunchest allies. The two GOP officials eventually agreed to certify the results. "They didn't elect Joe Biden", Giuliani said.

This is particularly true in Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania, where the legislature is controlled by Republicans while the governors and secretaries of state are Democrats.

Specialists on MI election law said the state Board of Canvassers is limited in scope and its primary responsibility is to certify the results.

Romney's statement came after Trump invited some of Michigan's top state-level Republicans to the White House in a sign he may be seeking a way around the election results.

That's why Sen. Bernie Sanders, who appealed to the same working-class constituency that Trump captured, was never going to be allowed to become the party's candidate.

The President-elect also spoke to governors, who briefed him on the status of the pandemic in their states as the virus surges around the country.

"It's an abuse of office", he said.

Other members of the legal team floated a theory involving Venezuela and George Soros, a bogeyman of conservatives, although they said they would probably not pursue it in court. Lindsey O. Graham (R-S.C.) or any other Republican politician who attempts to sway election officials or otherwise undermine free and fair elections.
