Trump seeks to draw attention to Michigan hearing where Giuliani will make his latest appearance
By John Wagner and Tom Hamburger
Trump sought Wednesday to draw attention to a legislative hearing later in the day in Michigan at which his personal attorney Rudolph W. Giuliani is scheduled to appear in his latest attempt to perpetuate baseless claims about election fraud.
“Watch today!” Trump said in a tweet promoting the hearing, scheduled by the Michigan House Oversight Committee.
Giuliani has appeared at similar GOP-organized events in two other states, and Trump has called into both to continue his attacks on election integrity.
Before the hearing in Michigan, Giuliani plans to meet with state Republican activists in Lansing.
Neither Michigan Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey nor House Speaker Lee Chatfield, both of whom are Republicans, are expected to meet with Giuliani. They previously said in a joint statement that they had seen no evidence of fraud that “would change the outcome of the election” in Michigan, where Biden has been declared the winner.
