Michigan AG indicts 16 GOP False Electors. The wheels of justice grind on

I’m no expert, so I’ll let others do most the talking.
I’m just glad some of these entitled masters of their universe are getting a little payback.
On the other hand, hard to imagine how American politics isn’t going to descend in a real cesspool of knock out legal battles.

So many other more important things to think about. Still guess someone needs to cleanup the crap.

Michigan AG DROPS THE LEGAL HAMMER on Trump Coup Plotters

Jul 18, 2023 Legal AF Podcast - Full Episodes

Michael Popok of Legal AF reports on breaking news that the Michigan Attorney General has obtained the state criminal indictment of 16 republican Michigan residents for being “fake electors” on felony counts that could put them away for 100 years plus, providing a path for other state attorney generals to both indict and stay out of the way of the federal investigation led by Jack Smith.

The Michigan charges were announced on the same day that Mr. Trump said he received another so-called target letter from Jack Smith, the special counsel for the Justice Department who is investigating his efforts to hold onto power after he lost the 2020 election. The letter signals that he is likely to be indicted in a federal case over those efforts, which came to a head on Jan. 6, 2021, when a mob of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol to try to stop the certification of Joseph R. Biden Jr.’s victory.

Both investigations are part of a reckoning over the conspiracy theories Mr. Trump and his allies have promoted about the election.


Michigan’s attorney general filed forgery and other felony charges Tuesday against 16 Republican activists who signed papers after the 2020 election falsely indicating they were the duly appointed presidential electors for the state.

Each offense in the criminal complaint is a felony, with the maximum punishment ranging from five years in prison on some charges to 14 years on others.

… The Michigan attorney general’s action intensifies pressure on Smith to file his Jan. 6 case. (On Tuesday, Trump revealed he had received a target letter, suggesting indictment is near.) Unless he wants at least one state prosecutor to proceed before him, he will need to move expeditiously. Moreover, Nessel’s charges also might light a fire under other state attorneys general, especially in Arizona, to pursue appropriate state law charges involving the phony electors in their states. It is noteworthy that presidential pardons cannot affect state court convictions.

Nessel has upheld her oath to hold accountable those who might have broken the law and endangered democracy. Now the question is: Will other prosecutors step up and move expeditiously enough to seek a verdict before the 2024 presidential election?
