Michigan residents that make ‘false claims’ regarding the 2020 election are at risk of getting a visit from state troopers, according to The Western Journal.
State Attorney General Dana Nessel and Michigan State Police are currently investigating claims that people are pushing false claims regarding the 2020 election.
Sen. Patrick Colbeck “is seeking donations on his website to help cover his finances for legal protection after Dominion Voting Systems threatened legal action against him for claiming fraud in the election results.”
“No one has free speech if they’re committing a crime, and committing fraud is a crime.”.
“We found circumstantial, but substantial, evidence that some people were committing fraud and extorting people for money.”
“It’s possible that we’re wrong, but we didn’t have the tools, the expertise or the mechanisms to explore that issue further.”
“That’s what I was living off of for seven months.”
“We want to get some truth out about this election.”
“The committee strongly recommends citizens use a critical eye and ear toward those who have pushed demonstrably false theories for their own personal gain.”
From The Western Journal:
Antrim County was at the center of multiple disputes over the results of the election.
Nessel, a Democrat, was invited by the committee to investigate claims that some people were perpetuating voter fraud allegations as a way of making a profit, spokeswoman Lynsey Mukomel said.
State Police are “assisting in the matter,” she said.
The Senate report laid bare differences among Republicans, with state Sen. Ed McBroom saying the report should lay to rest any talk of fraud in the election, while former state Sen. Patrick Colbeck and attorney Matthew DePerno disagree.

Colbeck “is seeking donations on his website to help cover his finances for legal protection after Dominion Voting Systems threatened legal action against him for claiming fraud in the election results,” according to Newsweek.
He and DePerno say their free speech rights are under attack, a charge McBroom rejects.
