The Michigan Auditor General is now reportedly investigating the role Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer had in the state’s covid-19 nursing home deaths.

As The Washington Free Beacon notes:


Michigan’s top government oversight official is investigating the number of residents who died from COVID-19 in nursing homes as a result of a controversial public health policy mandated by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer (D.).

Michigan auditor general Doug Ringler announced the audit last week following legislative hearings that questioned the accuracy of state data on COVID-related deaths in long-term care facilities. Republicans have argued Whitmer’s administration undercounted deaths after the governor allowed COVID-infected seniors to return to nursing homes for treatment. The state health director has disputed those claims, saying the data are “self-reported” by facilities.

Whitmer, who was reportedly considered for Joe Biden’s running mate during the 2020 campaign, has come under fire before for her COVID-related public health policies. Shortly after lockdowns began in April 2020, the Michigan governor was criticized by a bipartisan coalition for her seemingly arbitrary and overly restrictive stay-at-home order. The measure permitted marijuana dispensaries and liquor stores to remain open but closed businesses selling hardware and gardening supplies.

Whitmer also blocked state Republicans in July 2020 from passing a bill that would have prevented COVID-infected seniors from being treated in nursing homes.

According to the Michigan State Department of Health and Human Services 34 percent of all coronavirus deaths occurred in nursing homes.

This woman, like Cuomo, is guilty of mass murder in the nursing home scenarios. A state governor CAN be indicted and tried (unlike the American president), and SHOULD be tried by the people of Michigan for the horror, misery, and death she caused by her loathsome exercise of dictatorial authority. Michigan might as well have been Communist China – rather than America. Are the Democrats going to allow justice to exist, or are they going to smother justice, like they have been doing ever since Donald Trump was elected?

They were doing it subtly for decades , President Trump has exposed their evil, that’s why they hate him, and the rats cannot bribe, blackmail or manipulate him. That also annoys them immensely. God guides President Trump, God protects and strengthens him too
