Donald Trump is praising the efforts of the Arizona State Senate to do a “full forensic audit” of the election returns in Maricopa County, even if that audit has been severely hamstrung by election officials and radical activists who are pulling out all the stops to prevent transparency and accountability.
In his latest statement, Trump had a warning for Republicans in Pennsylvania that “no way” they will be re-elected if they fail to do a “full forensic audit” like that of Arizona.
“Great patriots led by State Senator Doug Mastriano, Senator Cris Dush, and State Representative Rob Kauffman went to Maricopa County, Arizona, to learn the best practices for conducting a full Forensic Audit of the 2020 General Election,” Trump said. “Now the Pennsylvania Senate needs to act. Senate President Jake Corman needs to fulfill his promise to his constituents to conduct a full Forensic Audit. Senator Dave Argall, Chairman of the State Government Committee, has to authorize the subpoenas, if necessary. The people of Pennsylvania and America deserve to know the truth. If the Pennsylvania Senate leadership doesn’t act, there is no way they will ever get re-elected!”
Donald Trump also called for more election audits in an interview with OANN in May.
“There was an expression that I’ve heard, that you’ve heard, for many years — the vote counter is far more important than the politician, or the person running for office,” Trump added. “And that was the case, in this instance, for the presidential election. Very sad that this could happen. It was a third world election.”
Trump’s backing of the Arizona audit, and election audits elsewhere, is not without Congressional Republican support. Rep. Elise Stefanik, a Congresswoman from New York who just replaced Rep. Liz Cheney in her House leadership positions, also supports it.
“I support that audit,” Stefanik said. “Transparency is good for the American people. And again, this should be a nonpartisan issue, whether you are Republican, Democrat, independent, or conservative, transparency is important, and the audit was passed by the Arizona state Senate,” she added.
Arizona’s audit is also spurring other states to take a second look at the 2020 election. Vernon Jones, who is running for governor in Georgia, has vowed to replicated the Arizona audit in the southern state if elected. Hopefully, more will take action before the 2022 elections.
