Michigan Republicans are facing charges for their alleged involvement in submitting a false slate of electors for Donald Trump after the 2020 election.

James Renner, a former Michigan Republican elector, testified that he did not intend to submit a false public record and was told the process was appropriate.

Renner said, “We were told this was an appropriate process.”

He previously testified that, “My background was enforcing the law, not breaking the law.”

Kahla Crino, a Michigan assistant attorney general, argued, “Somehow, your honor, this became, and the people do not dispute, that this became inspiration for a multistate criminal conspiracy that was absolutely linked to the Trump campaign.”

However, prosecutors argued the fake electors were inspired by the 1960 Hawaii case and were linked to a criminal conspiracy with the Trump campaign.

While Renner’s charges were dropped due to a cooperation deal, six other Republican electors are facing charges including forgery.

Preliminary hearings are examining the evidence to determine if it is sufficient to substantiate the charges against the fake electors.
