“Michigan testimony points to ongoing state, federal probes into false electors”

Detroit News:

 Testimony in a Michigan court Friday revealed that both state and federal investigators continue to probe certificates that falsely claimed Donald Trump won the 2020 presidential election, five months ahead of the next presidential election.

On the fourth day of preliminary examinations for six Republicans whose names appeared on the false certificate in Michigan, Capt. Darren Green of the Michigan State Police, said he had been interviewed Thursday by someone from the Federal Bureau of Investigation and two U.S. prosecutors from Washington, D.C.

Green was at the Michigan Capitol when a group of false electors attempted to enter the building on Dec. 14, 2020, to present their document to the Michigan Senate. Green said the interview Thursday focused on the electors.

Just before Green’s remarks, Howard Shock, an agent of Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel’s office, testified that he had outstanding subpoenas or search warrants for information as part of an ongoing state investigation into the false electors certificate.

“It’s still an open investigation,” Shock testified.

For the second time in two months, Shock said Trump, the former president and presumptive GOP nominee this year, was considered an unindicted co-conspirator, but as of now, there wasn’t enough evidence to recommend charges against him.

“He’s part of the investigation, but he hasn’t been charged with a crime yet,” Shock said of Trump.
