Michigan AG Dana Nessel Demands Sensitive Donor Information of Fundraisers for Trump Electors, GiveSendGo Vows Not to Comply
Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is targeting donors of the Trump electors who she is persecuting for standing against election fraud after the dubious 2020 presidential election.
The Detroit News reported on Wednesday that Nessel had obtained a search warrant to receive a list of donors who had contributed to the legal defense of the pro-Trump patriots charged by the AG with a laundry list of felonies for submitting an alternate slate of electors as election fraud cases were being heard in court in the aftermath of the 2020 election. Nessel requested bank routing numbers, contributions and communications in order to send a chilling message against the donors rallying around the cause of the Trump electors.
“The totality of the circumstances indicate that Give Send Go LLC holds information and data of the listed Give Send Go subscriber profiles who assisted in carrying out and executing a plan to replace the 2020 Democratic electors with Republican electors and the intent with which the participants acted,” stated the search warrant, which was signed by Ingham County District Court Judge Cynthia Ward on Aug. 29.
Attorney Joshua Blanchard, a veteran criminal defense attorney in Michigan, commented on the peculiar nature of this request and its impact on the case.
“I’ve never had the government demand to know who was paying my bill,” Blanchard said.
“One could fairly look at this from the outside and wonder if it’s just trying to harass the folks who are defending the false electors,” he added.
GiveSendGo responded to news of the reports and claimed they would not be complying with the request from AG Nessel’s office.
“We are aware of the reports regarding the search warrant. At GiveSendGo, we value the privacy of our givers and users and will protect it. Our founders have made it clear that we have not complied with these illegal search warrants, viewing them as overreaches and invasions of privacy.

We’ll continue to uphold the values our platform is built upon in our mission to share the hope of Jesus through crowdfunding,” GiveSendGo said in a statement.
