What happened next is that the two Michiganders did not hustle back to their home state. Instead, Chatfield spent the night at Trump’s D. C. hotel, sleeping off what appeared to be a big celebration.
If all Michigan’s legislators achieved in the day was not talking about the election, and not getting anything from Trump. Then …. WTF? This little coda to yesterday’s statement all about their “faith in the process” and “simple truths” is very, very not comforting.
Also, who covered the cost of that champagne? Who paid for those rooms? If it was Donald Trump, that’s definitely not a good look. If it was Michigan taxpayers, that is also not a good look.
The best possible outcome is that Chatfield wasted time and money on a pointless expedition to put some money in Trump’s pocket through his hotel. The worst possible outcome … is pretty awful.
Concerning the reassuring statement from Chatfield and Shirkey, Trump tweeted on Saturday morning that it is “… much different than reported by the media” while repeating claims that “we will show massive and unprecedented fraud!”
The question isn’t whether Trump is lying. Trump is alway lying. The question is what was actually discussed between Trump and the Michigan legislators, and what if any arrangements were reached.
