Minneapolis man convicted of lying to grand jury

U.S. District Attorneys say a Minneapolis man has been found guilty of lying to a grand jury.

According to prosecutors, 30-year-old Muse Mohamed was convicted Tuesday on two counts of false declarations before a grand jury following a two-day trial with a federal jury.

Mohamed testified in front of a grand jury in Minnesota regarding the use of the agent delivery process during the state’s primary election on August 11, 2020. According to election records in Minneapolis, Mohamed delivered ballots as an agent for three voters during the primary, however, the voters said they don’t know Mohamed, and didn’t ask him to pick up and deliver their absentee ballots.

Mohamed then testified to the grand jury he received absentee ballots from the voters, and was told the voters each gave statements they didn’t know him, and also didn’t ask him or anyone for agent delivery for the August 2020 election ballots, according to prosecutors.

They add Mohamed also testified that he received ballots from the voters.

His sentencing hearing will be set at a later date.
