Nevada attorney general is investigating false electors who aided Trump in 2020
Nevada’s attorney general is investigating a group of six Republicans who falsely pledged the state’s six electoral votes to Donald Trump, despite Joe Biden’s victory in the state.
The fake electors, including state GOP chair Michael McDonald, signed fake certificates on Dec. 14, 2020, falsely declaring themselves to be the state’s duly appointed Electoral College representatives. Trump and his allies then invoked that slate of false electors, as well as similar slates in six other states, as they tried to block Congress’ certification of the election results on Jan. 6, 2021.
So far, investigators have questioned witnesses and requested documents from those people.
The Nevada probe follows investigations by other states into possible election interference by groups of fake electors who attempted to change the outcome of the 2020 election.
