Michigan Senate Report Discredits Trump and GOP Voter Fraud Claims

HeadlineJun 25, 2021

In Michigan, a Republican-led state Senate committee has published a report systematically debunking claims of voter fraud made by former President Trump and his allies in the Republican Party. The 55-page document concludes there was “no evidence of widespread or systematic fraud” in the 2020 election and discredits conspiracy theories advanced by Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani that hundreds of dead people voted, that voting machines were hacked or that hundreds of thousands of illegal votes were cast. However, the Michigan Senate committee’s Republicans used the report to promote voting changes that would make it harder for people to vote by absentee ballot.
