Mich. lawmaker: Giuliani to appear at state elections hearing on Wednesday

Rudy Giuliani

President Donald Trump‘s personal lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, is set to appear in person on Wednesday at a Michigan House Oversight Committee, a state lawmaker has said.

The committee’s chair, Matt Hall (R), said in a Tuesday statement that the former New York City mayor will testify during a Wednesday hearing regarding the presidential election in the swing state. This comes after the Michigan State Board of Canvassers certified the state’s election results Monday last week, giving the state’s 16 Electoral College votes to President-elect Joe Biden.

The Detroit Free Press noted that, as of 10:45 am on Tuesday, the hearing was not listed on the state legislative calendar. While the hearing is set for 6 pm, it could start later than that, depending on what time the full House’s proceedings wrap up that day.

In his emailed statement, Hall wrote that the purpose of this hearing is to address allegations of voter fraud in the Wolverine State and to get information about election security and transparency.

“Election security and transparency are top concerns for people I represent. I have been getting thousands of emails and calls from people regarding this election. Other legislators have also. People have questions and concerns about the election process, the way it was handled and how our future elections could be impacted. Rumors and hearsay are everywhere and our committee is attempting to get to the bottom of all of it to deliver people answers they deserve,” he said.

“We can go a long way to achieving this by going straight to the top. Mr. Giuliani believes there were many problems with how this election was conducted and has alleged that there was significant fraud in Michigan. I am glad we were able to find time to make this work with the president’s legal team,” Hall continued. “This is an opportunity for us to get definitive answers—in-person—about Mr. Giuliani’s claims and evidence, while we work to provide clarity and transparency to people who have taken issue with our state’s election system.”

Giuliani has been leading the Trump campaign’s efforts to challenge the results of the 2020 presidential election, alleging widespread voter fraud. Of the dozens of lawsuits that the president’s campaign team has launched since Election Day, none have succeeded in changing the results of the election in any of the swing states that they have targeted. While the General Services Administration has already officially commenced the presidential transition, for which Trump gave his blessing, he has yet to concede the election.

This hearing follows another Oversight Committee hearing held on Tuesday about allegations of misconduct during the ballot-counting process inside Detroit’s TCF Center, per The Free Press.

State-level Democrats slammed this hearing, with Michigan House Minority Leader Christine Greig calling the hearing “a travesty,” according to The Free Press.

One of the Democrats on the committee, Darrin Camilleri, responded to the news, tweeting, “Looks like every sentence before our committee tomorrow will be a noun, a verb, and a conspiracy theory.”

Biden’s 60 Minutes Interview Horrifies White House: ‘Does NOT Reflect the OFFICIAL Position’

Uh oh. Someone let President Joe Biden speak by himself again and damage control immediately ensued. President Joe Biden’s “60 Minutes” interview which aired on CBS Sunday was 60 minutes of pure torture for viewers and 60 minutes of pure angst for the White House; everyone but the president himself.

60 Minutes’ official Twitter account publicly called out the President’s answers with an embarrassing statement that his own administration was in disagreement with him:

“President Biden tells 60 Minutes that U.S. men and women would defend Taiwan in the vent of a Chinese invasion. However, after our interview, a White House official told us that U.S. policy on Taiwan has not changed.”

CBS’ Scott Pelley also discussed inflation; an issue drastically affecting the welfare and wellbeing of families. Biden deflected with zero sympathy:

As for President Biden’s son Joe, he is sticking with the narrative that Hunter is the “smartest” person he knows and that “there’s not a single thing that I’ve observed at all that would affect me or the United States relative to my son Hunter.”

Biden also said that while the “proof of the pudding is in the eating” in response to being asked if he is fit to be President, Biden did not commit to saying whether or not he will run for re-election. His “intention” is to run again, “but that’s just intention” he said. “Is it a firm decision that I run again? That remains to be seen.”
