Michigan panels granted subpoena powers to continue election probe
legislation bodies granted the state’s Senate and House oversight committees subpoena powers Tuesday, allowing state officials greater range to investigate allegations of irregularities in the 2020 presidential election
“I’ve maintained that it is vitally important as we go forward in Michigan to ensure our election procedures are transparent, efficient and trustworthy when people go to the polls,” state House Oversight Committee Chairman Rep. Matt Hall
, a Republican, said in a statement. “This stance isn’t a partisan one. It’s something we all should strive for.”
The resolution passed by both the House and Senate, with one Senate Democrat reportedly
crossing party lines, allowed subpoenas to be issued to Susan Nash, the Livonia city clerk, and Detroit City Clerk Janice Winfrey, for all “information and communications” relating to the Nov. 3 election.
The counties are being asked to hand over all information used by the Absentee Voter Counting Board, hard drives, all communication between poll workers, the list of workers hired to be adjudicators, scanners, and voting machines, according to the subpoenas

Hall told Fox News prior to the Dec. 2 hearings that the intention of the oversight committees was not to overturn the election results, which showed Democrat Joe Biden beat President Trump by 154,188 votes in the Great Lake State.
