Here is the background article from today: (excerpt).

Two of Michigan’s leading Republican lawmakers are headed to the White House on Friday around 4 p.m. to meet with President Trump while his campaign continues its efforts to interfere with the state’s certification process, which is expected to be finalized on Monday.

Details about the meeting remain murky, but here is what we know so far:

    Mike Shirkey, the leader of the State Senate, and Lee Chatfield, the speaker of the State House, are headed to the White House. Both men have said they would not interfere with the certification process but created a joint committee to look into alleged reports of irregularities.

    At least two other Republican state lawmakers, Tom Barrett, a state senator, and Jason Wentworth, a state representative who will take over as House speaker in January, are also expected to be at the meeting. Mr. Barrett has been a vocal supporter of Mr. Trump and critic of Michigan’s secretary of state, Jocelyn Benson, a Democrat. He has called for an investigation into what he claims are irregularities in the November election before the results are certified.

    Notably, Ronna McDaniel, the chairwoman of the Republican National Committee and a Michigan native whom Mr. Trump has pressed repeatedly about the state, will not attend Friday’s meeting.

    The state is currently the focus of Mr. Trump’s dubious efforts to give Republican legislatures the reins to appoint pro-Trump electors in states that Mr. Biden won, tipping the Electoral College in the president’s favor when it meets on Dec. 14. Legal experts say the strategy is virtually sure to fail.

Thanks,Christian. People are more likely to see this if Denise sends an email. Did you ask her.

    I just made the post private so that only admins and editors can see it.
    I will ask Denise first before making it public. Good point.
    I did ask Sue before posting it and she that it was not going to be problematic.

Hi Christian. I think your posting is now dated, don’t you? I think we should take it down now. Let Wendy know if you agree. Thx
