Donald Trump Teases 'Bombshell' Michigan Election Lawsuit Ahead of Case in County He Won

Donald Trump has touted a "bombshell" development in Michigan as he continues to falsely state he lost the election due to widespread voter fraud.

Writing on his new blog, which the former president set up after he was banned from virtually all major social media sites, Trump claimed that the "major Michigan Election Fraud case" will show that votes were "intentionally switched" from him to Joe Biden in November.

"The number of votes is MASSIVE and determinative. This will prove true in numerous other States. All Republicans must UNIFY and not let this happen," Trump wrote on Monday.

"If a thief robs a jewelry store of all of its diamonds (the 2020 Presidential Election), the diamonds must be returned. The Fake News media refuses to cover the greatest Election Fraud in the history of our Country. They have lost all credibility, but ultimately, they will have no choice!"

While Trump does not specify exactly what he was referring to in his statement, there is an election lawsuit currently being heard in Antrim County.

The claim, filed by Antrim County resident William Bailey, alleged that there are more than 1,000 "phantom ballots" that were not included in the Michigan secretary of state's database.

According to court filing, there were 15,962 ballots counted in December, but only 14,901 votes shown, meaning "they do not exist on the voter rolls."

However, the claim, which is likely to be thrown out along with all the other suits disputing the election results, will not make a difference even if proven correct.

According to certified results, Trump won 9,748 of the votes in Antrim County, compared to 5,960 for Biden. Even if the so-called "phantom ballots" were found and counted, they wouldn't even affect the overall results.

Biden won the state of Michigan and its 16 Electoral Votes by more than 154,000 votes, or 3 percentage points, in November. More than six months later, there still has not been any evidence of widespread voter fraud that would alter the outcome.

Despite this, Trump appears to be keeping a close eye on the results in the rural county and Michigan overall as he continues to challenge the state's election results with misleading claims.

"At 6:31 in the morning on November 4th, a dump of 149,772 votes came in to the State of Michigan. Biden received 96% of those votes and the State miraculously went to him," Trump wrote on May 7.

"Has the Michigan State Senate started their review of the Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020 yet, or are they about to start? If not, they should be run out of office."
