Trump and McDaniel Allegedly Offered Legal Aid to Detroit Officials Amid Election Certification Dispute

McDaniel, present on the call, reportedly hinted at offering legal aid through the RNC to Palmer and Hartmann if they chose not to sign the certification. Trump emphasized fighting for the country and suggested it would be unfavorable for the officials to validate the election results, despite their earlier opposition.

The Republican canvassers later voted to certify the 2020 vote results despite the initial resistance. However, Palmer and Hartmann attempted to retract their votes a day after the call but were unsuccessful. The conversation occurred after a board meeting, revealing efforts to influence officials post-discussion.

Both Trump and McDaniel allegedly implied legal aid and criticized the election process, stating that Detroit had irregularities. They contended that certifying the election without an audit would hinder uncovering the truth behind the votes in Detroit.
