2020 ELECTION/MICHIGAN: “Jocelyn Benson, Michigan’s top election official… received an especially disturbing piece of information: President Donald Trump suggested in a White House meeting that she should be arrested for treason and executed.

Benson, a Democrat, revealed the alleged remark for the first time in an interview with NBC News. She said she learned of it from a source familiar with Trump’s White House meeting…

Reached for comment, Trump spokesman Taylor Budowich said: ‘I have it on good authority that Secretary Benson knowingly lied throughout her interview with NBC News.’”
