Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel’s office admitted there was a state investigation into “suspected fraudulent voter registrations,” for the 2020 presidential election, Just the News reports.
The outlet reported that the investigation was referred to the FBI.
Danny Wimmer, Nessel’s press secretary, told Just the News “that among 8,000 to 10,000 voter registration forms that were submitted to the Muskegon clerk before the 2020 general election, some were suspected to be fraudulent.”

“An organization turned in some thousands of voter registrations throughout the fall of 2020, estimated on the high end to be cumulatively 8-10,000, and some within those batches were found to be suspicious or fraudulent,” Wimmer said.
“There were legitimate registrations within the batches. The city clerk receiving the batches alerted authorities when she began noticing irregularities.”
More from Just the News:
Wimmer told The Detroit News last week that the “attempted fraud” was stopped prior to Election Day because the state election system worked and the applicants were not added to the voter rolls.
“The city clerk in Muskegon detected the fraudulent material provided and alerted the proper authorities,” the Michigan AG’s office said in a statement. “A thorough investigation was conducted by multiple agencies within the state and no successful fraud was perpetrated upon the state’s election process or qualified voter file.”
The state investigation was made public in October 2020, after the Muskegon city clerk reported the potential fraud to the state Bureau of Elections, which then referred the issue to Nessel and state police. Muskegon police also investigated the potential fraud with the state police.
The AG’s press secretary explained to The Detroit News that state officials referred the unresolved investigation to the FBI since it has national jurisdiction. Wimmer told Just the News, “The case was referred to the FBI in March of 2021.”
According to The Gateway Pundit, former Attorney General Bill Barr allegedly squashed the investigation into the suspected voter fraud.
“We’ve now learned from a Trump WH official that AG Bill Barr himself squashed the entire investigation, even after they arrested a Democrat mule as she was stuffing a drop box w/ballots in Muskegon, MI,” DC Draino wrote.

From The Gateway Pundit:
On Thursday, former Trump administration General Counsel Personnel Police Operations Andrew Kloster joined Steve Bannon on The War Room to discuss the Muskegon, Michigan 2020 voter fraud scandal.
Andrew Kloster said he notified Bill Barr’s DOJ – and Barr and his cronies smacked him down and killed the investigation.
