I’m at White House, where the Shirkey, Chatfield group left the West Wing around 5:37 and left the compound shortly after. White House says Trump meeting lasted ~an hour. WH spox said they won’t release a list of the participants and there won’t be a readout of the meeting.
Shirkey/Chatfield statement: “We have not yet been made aware of any information that would change the outcome of the election in Michigan & as legislative leaders, we will follow the law and follow the normal process regarding Michigan’s electors, just as we have said ...”
“Michigan’s certification process should be a deliberate process free from threats and intimidation. Allegations of fraudulent behavior should be taken seriously, thoroughly investigated, and if proven, prosecuted to the full extent of the law....”
“And the candidates who win the most votes win elections and Michigan's electoral votes. These are simple truths that should provide confidence in our elections.”
Much more on this here:

Chatfield & Shirkey said they gave Trump a letter in support of additional federal funding to help Michigan in the fight against COVID-19. They sent the same letter to congressional leaders, they said.
