DONALD Trump has teased his supporters with a “bombshell” election fraud case that alleges votes for him were intentionally switched to Joe Biden.
The former president issued a statement on Monday in which he blasted the “fake news media” who he accused of failing to cover the “ greatest Election Fraud in the history of our Country.”
He claimed that a new filing in Michigan would prove that election fraud took place in other states, despite his numerous previous lawsuits being thrown out.
“The major Michigan Election Fraud case has just filed a bombshell pleading claiming votes were intentionally switched from President Trump to Joe Biden,” the statement read.
“The number of votes is MASSIVE and determinative. This will prove true in numerous other States.”
Trump called on his party, claiming that “all Republicans must UNIFY and not let this happen.”
“If a thief robs a jewelry store of all of its diamonds (the 2020 Presidential Election), the diamonds must be returned,” the ex-president continued.
“They have lost all credibility, but ultimately, they will have no choice!” he added of the media.
It is unclear which fraud case Trump is referring to but there is a case currently waiting to be heard in Antrim County, Michigan.
Antrim County resident William Bailey has filed an election lawsuit calling for a recount.
He alleges there were 1,000 "phantom ballots" not included in the Michigan secretary of state's database.
The filing states that there were 5,962 ballots counted in December, but only 14,901 votes shown, Newsweek reports.
Bailey claims it shows they “do not exist in voter rolls.”
The county’s result became controversial on election night after an alleged “human error” resulted in the vote being called for Biden but then switched to Trump.
The ex-president eventually won the county, meaning that Bailey's lawsuit claiming his votes were switched to Biden would not change the outcome.
Trump had 9,748 votes, while only 5,960 were cast for Biden.
Newsweek reports that the suit is likely to be thrown out along with the other suits disputing the election results.
"It still will not make a difference as far as changing the outcome of the election,” Peter Wendling, an attorney for the local government, told 10News.
"Or the fact that there was a recount done properly and that this election has been certified.
"I see no basis for this discovery. It's overly burdensome, it's unnecessary.”
The case has also received the attention of My Pillow CEO Mike Lindell who has claimed it could be a “game-changer” as he continues to push back against the election result.
He is currently being sued for defamation by Dominion Voting Systems for falsely claiming that they played a role in rigging the election against Trump.
The machines were used in Antrim County but there is a paper ballot also recorded for every vote cast there.
FOCUS ON MICHIGAN
Biden won Michigan and its 16 electoral votes by more than 154,000 and has been in office for almost four months.
Yet Trump has focused on the state, and on Antrim County, as he continues to challenge the result.
"At 6:31 in the morning on November 4th, a dump of 149,772 votes came into the State of Michigan. Biden received 96% of those votes and the State miraculously went to him," Trump wrote on May 7.
"Has the Michigan State Senate started their review of the Fraudulent Presidential Election of 2020 yet, or are they about to start? If not, they should be run out of office."
His latest statement comes as senior members of the GOP U-turn on previous negative statements about Trump and tries to realign themselves with the ex-president.
He has recently hinted at another presidential bid in 2024.
Trump had been denounced for the false assertions that he won the election after repeated failures to show any evidence.
However, Republicans are now running back their comments as they heap praise on Trump.
“People on our side of the aisle believe that Trump policies worked,” South Carolina senator Lindsay Graham told Fox on Monday.
“They’re disappointed that he lost. To try to erase Donald Trump from the Republican party is insane. And the people who try to erase him are going to wind up getting erased.
“It’s impossible for this party to move forward without President Trump being its leader because the people who are conservatives have chosen him as their leader.
“And you know why they chose him? Because he delivered.”
Graham’s comments came as the GOP moves to oust Liz Cheney from Republican House leadership following her criticism of Trump.
The judge will make a decision on Bailey’s suit next week.
