Trump admits Michigan Congressmen met to discuss coup

Georgia pours cold water on Trump bid to overturn Biden win

The two Congressmen admit they "have not yet been made aware of any information that would change the outcome of the election in MI and as legislative leaders, we will follow the law and follow the normal process regarding Michigan's electors, just as we have said throughout this election".

Republican Representative Jim Banks, the incoming chairman of a large group of conservative House Republicans, indirectly acknowledged Biden is likely to prevail, telling reporters that he expects the Democratic president-elect "to be a lame duck from Day One" in office.

"But because I've been part of the process, I've had to be more guarded", he said.

Following a by-hand recount, US President-elect Biden's narrow victory in Georgia was officially certified on Friday by the Republican official who oversaw the audit. "I'm having to make sure I'm staying on firm legal footing for the official duties of the governor".

But he has no such meetings now listed on his public schedule for this weekend, and counties in the Rust Belt state, along with MI, are due to certify their vote totals on Monday.

Trump's bid to cling to power appeared ever more tenuous on Friday after Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger announced a manual recount and audit of all ballots cast in the southern state had confirmed Biden as the victor there.

The result in Georgia gave Biden 306 electoral votes, a total that Trump called a "landslide" when states delivered him that number in 2016.

US President Donald Trump was dealt a fresh setback in his bid to overturn election defeat as MI lawmakers indicated they would not seek to undo Joe Biden's projected win in the state.

Yet on Saturday morning, he also continued to claim that fraud would be unearthed in MI.

While the Biden Campaign has said "the United States government is perfectly capable of escorting trespassers out of the White House", and former President Barack Obama joked in a late night show about Navy Seals going in to evict Trump from the White House, the U.S. national security establishment and the military has so far steered clear of any hint of interference should the President decide to dig in.

First, Trump posted the Shirkey/Chatfield statement with the caption "This is true, but much different than reported by the media". "We will show massive and unprecedented fraud!"

On Friday, Michigan state Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey and House Speaker Lee Chatfield agreed to meet at the White House at President Donald Trump's behest, a move that was met with intense backlash.

Their statement also included language saying fraud should be "taken seriously" and be prosecuted if uncovered.

Afterwards, Mr Shirkey and Mr Chatfield said in a joint press release: "We have not yet been made aware of any information that would change the outcome of the election in MI and as legislative leaders, we will follow the law and follow the normal process regarding Michigan's electors, just as we have said throughout this election". They say they got invited to the White House Wednesday night.

Many of his campaign's lawsuits have been thrown out of court.

A coalition of state election officials and the Trump administration's Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency have declared that the election was the most secure in history.
