President Donald Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani celebrated a ruling in a Michigan court on Friday was a “big win” for Trump’s election team. However, the ruling wasn’t about the presidential contest but about a local marijuana measure instead.
A judge in Antrim County, Michigan ordered for ballots to be reviewed and preserved from 22 tabulation machines after a marijuana proposal narrowly won by a single vote in Antrim County, the Detroit Free Press reported on Friday.
The order came after a voter had complained that the ballots were damaged during a recount causing the proposal to shift from a tie vote to passing by one vote.
“BIG WIN FOR HONEST ELECTIONS. Antrim County Judge in Michigan orders forensic examination of 22 Dominion voting machines,” Giuliani tweeted after the ruling.
Trump actually beat Biden in Antrim County by nearly 4,000 votes even though Biden won the state of Michigan by 156,643 votes — a margin of 2.8 percentage points — over Trump.
Trump has suffered a series of courtroom setbacks in Michigan and other battleground states as the president attempts to overturn the election results.
Earlier this week, the Michigan Court of Appeals shut down an appeal by the Trump campaign challenging the state’s election results.
Despite President-elect Joe Biden’s electoral win last month, the president has refused to formally concede and is reportedly avoiding his official duties to put his entire focus into pursuing his baseless claims that the election was rigged.
BIG WIN FOR HONEST ELECTIONS.

This is where the untrustworthy Dominion machine flipped 6000 votes from Trump to Biden.
Spiking of votes by Dominion happenned all over the state.
