The Trump legal team, after repeated rejections by the courts, has finally scored a victory in Michigan. Yesterday, a judge there greenlighted a forensic investigation of 22 Dominion vote tabulation machines used in rural Antrim County.
According to Fox News, “The order from Judge Kevin Elsenheimer stems from a challenge made by voter William Bailey, who alleges that ballots were damaged during a recounting of ballots in a village marijuana proposal that narrowly passed.”
Although the order does not address the presidential race per se, the investigation could potentially yield damning information about the machines that will prompt other inquiries into the election, which Trump and his team are contesting.

Attorney Jenna Ellis appeared on Fox & Friends to share the good news, adding, “Our team is going to be able to go in this morning and will be there for about eight hours to conduct that forensic examination and we’ll have the results in about 48 hours, and that’ll tell us a lot about these machines.”
A buoyant Rudy Giuliani tweeted:
BIG WIN FOR HONEST ELECTIONS.
Antrim County Judge in Michigan orders forensic examination of 22 Dominion voting machines.
This is where the untrustworthy Dominion machine flipped 6000 votes from Trump to Biden.
Spiking of votes by Dominion happenned all over the state.

The 6,000 votes Giuliani’s tweet refers to were erroneously credited to Joe Biden on election night. The errors, which were noticed by county clerk, a Republican, were corrected and reported to have arisen out of human error, not due to malfunctions in the machines.
