First, they lost in court. Now, four pro-Trump attorneys who tried to overturn Michigan’s 2020 presidential election results could lose their ability to practice law.

Michigan’s top three elected state officials are calling for the disbarment of controversial attorney Sidney Powell and three Michigan lawyers who tried to win in court what President Donald Trump lost at the election booth.  

The lawsuit, King v Whitmer, brought by the pro-Trump attorneys, cited false claims of voter fraud.  Similar lawsuits were filed in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Wisconsin and Arizona.  

On Monday, Governor Gretchen Whitmer, Attorney General Dana Nessel and Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson filed complaints with the Attorney Grievance Commission of the State of Michigan and the State Bar of Texas.

The pro-Trump attorneys who tried to overturn Michigan’s presidential election results are now facing some possible professional repercussions.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel alleges prominent former Trump attorney Sidney Powell and three Michigan lawyers of filing a frivolous lawsuit when they challenged the state’s election results.

There’s little more than two weeks left before the November 8 election.

Recent polls have shown Democrat Hillary Clinton holding a double-digit lead in Michigan.

Stephen Neuman is the senior adviser for the Michigan coordinated campaign. 

He says they are now looking to use those poll numbers to help Democrats down the ballot.

“We are working to include targeted House races, both targeted state House and congressional races, on the various scripts we use both on the phones and at the doors,” says Neuman.

The Republican National Convention is over.  

Now the Trump campaign must gear up for the general election in Michigan.

During the primaries, the Trump campaign operated with a very small staff. But the campaign’s top man in Michigan says that’s changing. 

“We’ll be bringing in a lot of experienced people,” says Scott Hagerstrom, the Trump campaign’s Michigan state director. “As soon as they hit the ground they can hit the ground running.”
