Donald Trump’s legal team will be holding a meeting in the Hyatt Regency in Phoenix with a few members of Arizona’s legislature to discuss evidence of voter fraud.
The purpose of the meeting is to gather evidence that will allow lawmakers in Arizona to investigate more into the matter. The meeting will coincide with the secretary of state certifying the election results.
The Trump campaign and Republicans of the state have filed multiple lawsuits in Maricopa County, however, they have not provided substantial evidence and as a result, their cases have been rejected by multiple judges.
A Republican Governor gave his two cents on the matter, saying that he believes in the election system of his state and accepts Biden’s victory in Arizona. He had previously avoided publicly announcing this; however, he spoke up on the matter after the lawsuits were repeatedly dismissed in court.
Rep. Mark Finchem will be chairing the meeting and he is in support of Trump and his claim that the 2020 election was rigged through voter fraud and illegal activities.
Trump campaign has made it seem like the meeting is a legislative hearing, however, that is not the case. The speaker of the House of Representatives and the president of the Senate have not provided their authorization.
Finchem did not receive approval for the meeting, even though he had requested authorization for a meeting of the House Federal Relations Committee weeks ago.
He recently stated in a press release that the members of the legislature will be holding a public hearing, because people are infuriated over voter fraud and they have affidavits of illegal activity as well as statistical anomalies.
From Trump’s legal team, Jenna Ellis and Rudy Giuliani will be present at the meeting along with others joining them through a videoconference from Washington.
Despite their efforts to arrange this meeting, it seems there will be no fruitful results. It will be a challenge convincing the governor to arrange a special session to investigate voter fraud unless the Democrats are on board as well.
A limited number of people can attend the hearing due to restrictions in light of the coronavirus but it will be available for streaming online.
