Michigan’s Democrat Attorney General Dana Nessel is the top law enforcement officer in the state. Unfortunately, for the lawfare queen, the case of her career, which involves charging 15 MI GOP electors with 8 felonies each, appears to be imploding.

If Michigan’s Democrat attorney general is successful with her politically-motivated witch hunt against the Trump-supporting electors, and they are found guilty of all 8 felony charges, it would be enough to send each member of the group, which consists of primarily senior citizens, to prison for life.

Unfortunately for the lawfare queen of Michigan, after three days of testimony by AG Nessel’s lead investigator, it is becoming increasingly clear that AG Nessel, or someone in her office, selected the wrong cop to investigate the manufactured crimes against the MI Republican electors.

On Friday, MI GOP elector James Renner, who previously worked in the security division of the Michigan State Police Department, testified in front of Judge Kristen Simmons. During his testimony, Mr. Renner revealed that he had agreed to a plea deal several months ago in return for his testimony in the case against his fellow GOP electors. According to Mr. Renner, his lawyers were in discussion with the attorney general’s office even before the AG’s office filed formal charges against 15 of his fellow GOP electors. Unfortunately for the politically-motivated MI Attorney General’s office, Mr. Renner’s testimony only helped his fellow electors, as he confirmed under oath that he believed on December 14, 2020, when he signed the alternate slate of electoral votes, that the election was stolen from President Trump. He also told the defense lawyers that he continues to hold the same belief today.

On Monday, while under oath in the pre-trial case against 5 of the 15 electors in AG Nessel’s lawfare case, Nessel’s top cop, Agent Howard Shock, was brutally cross-examined by MI GOP Elector Marian Sheridan’s lawyer, John Freeman, who effectively shredded his case against his client, and by extension, all of the electors who’ve been charged in Nessel’s lawfare case.

(…)  After Shock testified that the elector’s strategy was intended to cause a “pause” in the electoral process, Judge Simmons interrupted the cross-examination to ask him about the so-called “crime” that was allegedly committed, “How is it that citizens taking efforts to cause their legislators to pause a process is a crime?” Judge Simmons asked.

The judge asked Shock to explain if the alternate slate of electoral votes cast by the GOP electors was intended to get VP Pence to accept their slate of electoral votes over the Democratic slate of electoral votes.

Several defense lawyers jumped up to question Assistant Attorney General LaDonna Logan, one of the officials in AG Nessel’s office who reportedly approved the ridiculous charges against the 16 GOP electors, as she attempted to convince her witness, Agent Shock, to revise his statement about his claim about the “pause” in the electoral process.

When the judge accused Logan of trying to impeach her own witness by encouraging him to change his previous testimony, she replied, “I’m allowed to impeach my own witness.” Judge Simmons, who has been very fair in this case, snapped back, “Impeach away. Impeach away,” adding, “That just discredits him further and further.”

It wasn’t the first time Judge Simmons mocked the credibility of Nessel’s dirty cop, who sat in the courtroom for multiple days trying to convince the judge that she should recommend the case against the mostly senior citizen electors, which would send them to jail for life if convicted of all 8 felony charges, should be heard by a jury in a separate trial.

On Monday, Judge Simmons reminded the court that AG Nessel’s lead investigator hadn’t given a “great presentation” after days of bumbling through answers that he was either unable to provide the defense lawyers or couldn’t answer because he didn’t appear to have his notes available for his testimony.

A lawyer for one of the 15 false electors facing felony charges in Michigan revealed in court Wednesday that a top official within the Attorney General’s office privately told him last year that she believed his client “wasn’t trying to defraud anyone.”
Michael Bullotta, a former federal prosecutor who’s representing Rose Rook, an 82-year-old from Paw Paw, made the disclosure on the final day of preliminary examinations for six of the GOP electors. Their signatures appeared on a certificate that falsely claimed Republican Donald Trump won Michigan’s 2020 election and that Trump’s campaign attempted to use to overturn his loss to Democrat Joe Biden.
As Attorney General Dana Nessel’s office was investigating the false document, Rook participated in a proffer interview with some of the Nessel’s staff, including Danielle Hagaman-Clark, on May 22, 2023, according to Bullotta’s remarks Wednesday. Hagaman-Clark is now chief of the Attorney General’s Criminal Justice Bureau. (Read more: The Detroit News, 6/05/2024)
