Rashida Tlaib Attacks Witnesses From Michigan Hearing, Says Claims Are False
Democrat says 'Twitter should hire more Michiganders as fact checkers'
Rashida Tlaib, a Democrat, publicly attacked the witnesses who testified at the Michigan hearing earlier this week, saying their claims were "fake."
Tlaib tweeted of witness hearings:
“My @Twitter feed is filled with MI state reps/senators, journalists, attorneys, local clerks etc. fact checking witnesses testifying about fake a-- fraud claims at #mileg committee."
“Maybe Twitter should hire more Michiganders as fact checkers. We are becoming experts at it.”

Maybe Twitter should hire more Michiganders as fact checkers. We are becoming experts at it.
But Tlaib's comments are precisely why Dominion-trained IT contractor, Melissa Carone, said her life "was destroyed" due to such smears.
Carone was asked why additional witnesses have not stepped forward; her answer encapsulated how the Democrats prevented this:
“I’ll tell you why. My life has been destroyed."
"My life has been completely destroyed because of this!" she said.
"I can’t even get a job anymore because Democrats like to ruin your life.”
Tlaib represents Michigan's 13th Congressional District, where she easily won reelection last month.
Wayne County, which includes Detroit, is now at the epicenter of the Trump 2020 Campaign's election concerns in the state.
Judge Timothy Kenny of Wayne County Circuit Court said any other affidavits did not corroborate Carone's affidavit for the lawsuit, adding her claims weren't "credible," the Detroit Free Press reported.
Jake Rollow, a spokesman for Michigan Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson, said there was "no actual evidence of any wrongdoing or fraud" presented by the witnesses.
"Instead, we saw a regurgitation of vague accusations based on lack of knowledge of election procedure and widely debunked conspiracy theories," he said.
Carone claimed she saw workers scanning Biden ballots up to ten times each.
She added that the fraudulent activity was widespread during the count.
"What I witnessed at the TCF Center was complete fraud; the whole 27 hours I was there," she revealed.
"There were batches of ballots being run through the tabulating machines numerous times, being counted eight to 10 times," she said.
