The saga of alleged voter fraud in the 2020 United States presidential election continues, and this time it features a "star witness" brought in by Trump lawyer Rudy Guiliani who absolutely went off last night during a hearing in front of the Michigan House Oversight Committee.
Melissa Carone, who claims to have worked for Dominion Voting Systems, argued that Joe Biden's 154,000-vote victory in Michigan was the result of voter fraud.
She could not fully say in words what she DID at her job but she did INSIST that fraud occurred because she "saw it" occur.
I signed something saying that if I'm wrong, I can go to prison. Did you?
Witness Melissa Carone, to Representative Johnson
Guiliani, who says he met Carone "earlier that day," appears to try and get her to stop talking as she is going off on the turnout rate of Michigan registered voters versus unregistered voters.
This is like pretty much the trumpiest thing I’ve ever seen https://t.co/2NgXi3vVvB— Molly Jong-Fast🏡 (@Molly Jong-Fast🏡)1606961220.0
Representative Johnson from Michigan is very calm and polite throughout the whole exchange, as Carone suggested that they took the poll book and "did something crazy to it," and later, she was questioned further and called not credible.
I really truly can’t get enough of this. The confidence and entitlement is just astounding! https://t.co/NWEBS9W690— Ryan J. Reilly (@Ryan J. Reilly)1606963521.0
People on Twitter are convinced that Carone was drunk as she laid into the Michigan representative (but this is not proven just speculated).

Mostly, though, people are just excited for her to be played on SNL this weekend, and a LOT of people want Kate McKinnon to do it.
@ditzkoff Can't be Kate McKinnon because we need Giuliani up there too. https://t.co/60Pv1CyaYv— Mallory McMorrow (@Mallory McMorrow)1607019021.0
The question is though, how will Kate play both Rudy Guiliani AND Melissa Carone?
@AnandWrites Kate McKinnon can’t play both.— Michael Temkin (@Michael Temkin)1606967102.0
Other SNL actresses, like Cecily Strong and Chloe Fineman, WOULD for sure kill it in the role, as well.
at this point the only question is whether she’s going to be played by Kate McKinnon, Cecily Strong or Chloe Fineman https://t.co/nydZuPl6H6— Dave Itzkoff (@Dave Itzkoff)1606964067.0
