Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel announced on Thursday that her office will use taxpayer funds and the state’s police to investigate people who raised concerns of the security of the November 2020 election.
According to the attorney general’s spokesperson, she will accept a request from Michigan GOP state senators to examine individuals allegedly earned money from false claims.
The request from the lawmakers comes after the group issued a report that stated that they “found no evidence of widespread or systematic fraud in Michigan’s prosecution of the 2020 election.”
However, many citizens throughout the state have raised concerns over the course of the election process. Specifically, many point to the events in Antrim County as a base for their concern. As votes were counted, the county election results showed Joe Biden leading President Trump by 3,000 votes. However, Trump won the county in 2016 by almost 30 points.
After a large number of people raised concerns, the issue was caught, addressed, and fixed by a county clerk.
However, after the election, a judge allowed Nessel and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson to block the results of a forensic audit of Dominion machines in Antrim County.
Therefore, the target of the Nessel investigation will “consider investigating those who have been utilizing misleading and false information about Antrim County to raise money or publicity for their own ends.”
Further, the report from the state Senate attacked individuals who raised these concerns.
“The Committee finds those promoting Antrim County as the prime evidence of a nationwide conspiracy to steal the election place all other statements and actions they make in a position of zero credibility,” it said.
The spokesperson for Nessel did not list any specific targets of the “investigation.”
