Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer (D), one of former President Trump’s biggest critics, is now changing her story about how she funded a private jet trip to Florida in March.
The pressure has been building on Whitmer, and now she is trying to change her story to escape further scrutiny as conservative groups demand an investigation into Whitmer.
The latest story change from Whitmer came after State Representatives sent Whitmer a letter demanding answers about her private jet trip. While Whitmer’s office responded to the letter, the answer simply raised more questions.
Michigan House Oversight Committee chairman Representative Steve Johnson (R) said, “There are still unanswered questions, but we are glad the governor finally admitted to wrongdoing.”
Whitmer is in a bad spot because this incident occurred as Whitmer held Michigan in an iron grip and her draconian coronavirus lockdowns were some of the worst in the nation.
Republicans have little reason to be lenient with Whitmer, and they are eager to punish her for her hypocritical behavior. Whitmer traveled to Florida in a private jet while telling Michiganders that they must stay at home. One way or another, Whitmer may be facing an investigation that could torpedo her political career.
