Michigan AG Nessel and others are suggesting that Republicans who oppose certification or even meet with President Trump on the issue could be criminally investigated or charged. Once again, the media is silent on this abusive use of the criminal code. https://t.co/IlEQ3roKsE

Michigan Democrats, led by State Attorney General Dana Nessel, are threatening Republican state legislators with criminal investigations if they fail to certify votes.
Nessel “is conferring with election law experts on whether officials may have violated any state laws prohibiting them from engaging in bribery, perjury and conspiracy,” it is being reported.
Richard Primus, a Michigan University law professor, writes in Politico, legislators shouldn’t meet with President Trump because it would threaten them “personally, with the risk of criminal investigation.”
Widespread voter fraud is being alleged by the Trump campaign as having taken place in numerous states, including Michigan.
