Michigan’s radical Democrat AG Dana Nessel sent a ‘cease and desist’ letter to Big League Politics demanding they remove all stories, audio, and video related to #DetroitLeaks, an undercover expose that revealed that Detroit poll workers were being trained in how to get away with voter fraud by ejecting GOP Poll Challengers and trained in how to destroy ballots.
In the audio recordings, the election trainer can be heard telling the workers she’s training, “Challengers and poll watchers—they have to wear a mask, and they have to stay 6-feet!” The election trainer explained how the 6-feet rule would keep poll challengers from being able to view what they’re doing, “That’s important because they can come behind your table, but if you don’t have 6-feet, they can’t come back there!” A trainee can be heard attempting to clarify what the trainer was saying, ” So the 6 feet back, unless they have really good vision, they can’t actually see?” Incredibly, the Wayne County elections trainer answers, “Exactly! Unless they got really good vision or they brought their binoculars!” she mocked. The election trainer told the workers to call 9-11 if the poll challengers “make a scene.”
Shane Trejo, who refuses to be silenced by AG Dana Nessel, shared a second #DetroitLeaks video exclusively with The Gateway Pundit.
#DetroitLeaks Part 2 reveals an Oct. 28 settlement of a lawsuit filed by Republican House candidate Steve Carra, of Three Rivers against Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson and Director of the Michigan Bureau of Elections Jonathan Brater that gave poll challengers the right to stand closer than 6 feet when necessary to observe the ballots, the poll book or to make a challenge.
GOP Election observer blocked from TCF Center in Detroit.
The suit was settled in the Michigan Court of Claims, with Judge Cynthia Stephens presiding over the case. Judge Stephens asked the new directive be shared with poll workers by election day.
“To the extent that it is necessary to stand in closer proximity to election workers to have a challenge heard, to observe the poll book or perform any other legal duty, challengers and poll watchers are permitted to do so, provided close personal interaction is as brief as possible.” Attorney Matt Gronda
According to MLive– The settlement overrules the original directive from Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson that said election workers can strictly enforce social distancing between challengers and poll workers.
The new guidance allows close contact in necessary situations, Carra’s attorney Matt Gronda said in the Oct. 28 hearing.
Despite the lawsuit giving poll challengers the ability to stand closer than 6 feet when necessary, one of the most common complaints by GOP poll challengers who filed affidavits about the voter irregularities they witnessed at the TCF Center in Detroit is that they were not allowed to stand to close enough to view absentee ballots, envelopes, or poll books.
Shane Trejo told The Gateway Pundit, “#DetroitLeaks Part 2 shows how Democrats obscured their protocol to deliberately disenfranchise poll challengers on election day.”
“This is the video that Gretchen Whitmer, Dana Nessel, and Jocelyn Benson don’t want you to see.”- Shane Trejo.
Trejo’s video should help future lawsuits from GOP poll challengers whose legal right to view absentee ballots and poll books by Wayne County election workers and roaming agitators was clearly violated.
“I am seeing a terror campaign to silence whistleblowers who saw voter fraud. Thousands of whistleblowers who saw the steal must not end up like Snowden and Assange. It’s so important to fight back against unconstitutional overreach,” Trejo told The Gateway Pundit.

It appears that President-elect Joe Biden may already be falling short on some of his campaign promises. When the Biden campaign released their transition plan, advocates immediately noticed that reform of cannabis laws was not stated in the plan, despite many promises on the campaign trail. While drug law reform and cannabis legalization are not specifically mentioned in the plan, it is possible that these issues could fall under the umbrella of criminal justice reform.
The new page says Biden is working to “strengthen America’s commitment to justice, and reform our criminal justice system” and includes specific measures, such as a ban on police chokeholds and creating a national oversight commission to track law enforcement abuses, but cannabis legalization or decriminalization is mysteriously absent.
The work ahead in the next 73 days will be the foundation for an administration that puts the health, safety, and character of our communities first.

His campaign site, which is still up and running, includes a section titled, “Plan for Black America” where he promises to “decriminalize the use of cannabis and automatically expunge all prior cannabis use convictions.”
The fact that this language was in the pre-election press release but missing from the most recent ones has many activists very concerned.
A Biden campaign spokesman told Marijuana Moment that “Nothing has changed,” and said that Biden has many important policy plans that are not officially listed on the website yet.
Activists have good reason to be concerned that Biden won’t follow through on his promise, considering that he was one of the architects of the drug war and has been against cannabis legalization throughout most of his career.
Despite the changing attitudes towards cannabis legalization, people arrested for cannabis still make up a significant portion of cases that come through the country’s criminal court system.
According to the FBI’s recent Uniform Crime Report, more people were arrested for cannabis possession last year than for all violent crimes put together.
The data showed that 545,602 people were arrested in the US for cannabis-related crimes last year. Meanwhile, just 495,871 people were arrested for violent crimes.
Furthermore, the vast majority of the people who got arrested for cannabis were not accused of selling or trafficking the substance, but just for simple possession. 500,395 of the total cannabis arrests last year, or about 92%, were for possession, which is still more than the number of people who were arrested for violent crimes.
Overall, cannabis arrests have been going down nationwide due to the spread of legalization. Last year, cannabis arrests were down by 18% when compared with 2018.
As suspected, the FBI’s data showed that people were less likely to get arrested for cannabis in states where it was legal or available for medical use, with eastern states seeing far more arrests.
According to the report, roughly 53% of all cannabis arrests last year took place in the northeastern part of the country, where cannabis laws are still catching up with the west.
People of color are also at a greater risk of being targeted for cannabis arrests. According to a report from the ACLU, 2018 data showed that people of color were 3.6 times more likely to be arrested for cannabis possession than white people, despite using the substance at the same rates.
