Nevada Attorney General investigates a fraudulent elector scheme linked to pro-Trump supporters

In a recent development, the Nevada attorney general’s office has initiated an investigation into individuals suspected of participating in a fake elector scheme following the 2020 election. According to a source close to the investigation, this probe sheds light on a troubling incident involving six Republicans who signed false Electoral College certificates in December 2020 on behalf of then-President Donald Trump, despite the fact that he had lost the state to Joe Biden. This deceptive scheme, it appears, extended to several other states, including Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, and New Mexico.

While this investigation is unfolding, Attorney General Aaron Ford’s office has refrained from making any official comments regarding the matter. It was initially reported by Politico, drawing attention to the Nevada Democrat’s rigorous pursuit of justice in this case.

Some of the individuals implicated as fake electors in Nevada have been offered limited immunity in exchange for their testimony before a federal grand jury, which is central to the broader investigation surrounding Trump and others. It’s important to note that former President Trump has consistently denied any wrongdoing throughout this ordeal.

In previous instances, these electors had evaded questions in different settings, including their appearance before the House select committee investigating the events of January 6, 2021. They cited their Fifth Amendment protections as the basis for their silence.

This investigation isn’t isolated to Nevada alone. In Georgia, Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis has taken legal action against multiple individuals who played a role in the plot to present fake electors in the state, including former President Trump. Similarly, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel filed charges against over a dozen individuals involved in fraudulent elector activities. In addition, Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes has launched an investigation into the fake elector scheme within the state.

The Nevada attorney general’s investigation into the pro-Trump fake elector scheme represents a significant step in ensuring the integrity of the electoral process. As the legal proceedings unfold, it remains to be seen how these developments will impact the individuals involved and the broader political landscape.
