Trump campaign says Pennsylvania, Arizona, Michigan to hold public hearing on 2020 election

State legislatures in Pennsylvania, Arizona and Michigan held public hearings to “confer confidence” on the 2020 presidential election, in which all legal votes are counted and “illegal votes are not counted,” the Trump campaign said .

The announcement is made Tuesday after certifying the results of the 2020 race in favor of Pennsylvania and Michigan presidential elections Joe Biden.


The Trump campaign said the Pennsylvania State Senate will hold its first hearing Wednesday in Gettysburg, Pa., And will feature testimony from witnesses “who have filed affidavits for the 2020 electoral fraud.”

Wednesday’s hearing will also feature a presentation by former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who serves as President Trump’s personal advocate and is leading the campaign’s legal challenges around the election.

The Pennsylvania Senate Majority tweeted, referring to the hearing as a “informative meeting on electoral issues of 2020”.

Next Monday, November 30, the Arizona legislature will also hold a hearing, followed by one in the Michigan legislature on December 1.

Giuliani said in a statement on Tuesday, “It is in everyone’s interest to conduct a thorough investigation of election irregularities and fraud.” “And the only way to do this is from the November 3 election with public hearings, witnesses, videos, photographs and other evidence of illegals.”

Jenna Ellis, the Trump campaign’s senior legal adviser and the president’s personal lawyer, said she is “pleased” that the legislature will hear.

“There were serious irregularities, we have evidence of fraud in many states, and it is important for all Americans to have confidence in our electoral process,” Ellis said in a statement. “We wanted from the very beginning that every legal vote should be counted and every illegal vote should be exempted.”

The Trump campaign has pointed to a part of the constitution stating that state legislatures have the exclusive right to elect their representatives in the electoral college, “providing an important safeguard against voter fraud and election manipulation.”

The campaign stated that “state legislatures are uniquely qualified and elected to conduct hearings on electoral irregularities and fraud.”

The number of state government voters is 3-0 in the state election results.

The hearing began after the Pennsylvania State Department certified the results of the election early Tuesday. The Nevada Supreme Court also certified the results in Biden’s favor on Tuesday, and Michigan did so on Monday.

In a statement on Tuesday, Bob Bauer, senior adviser to Biden for President, said that “it is clearly clear to everyone but Donald Trump, Rudy Giuliani and Jenna Ellis that this election is over and Joe Biden is totally Has won. ”

In Pennsylvania, the Trump campaign filed more than 15 lawsuits, which were dismissed because they were “without merit” and “unsupported by the evidence. A legal battle to boycott voters and prevent certification of election results in Keystone State” Was the effort. ” Said Bauer.

“Trump did not succeed in Pennsylvania and will not succeed anywhere else. Trump’s lawsuits will continue to fail, because in more than 30 cases from election day, states will continue to certify their results, and Joe Biden will be sworn in. . President on January 20, 2021. “

The Trump campaign is appealing a federal judge to reject his campaign’s attempt to block the authentication of votes in Pennsylvania.

The Third Circuit Court of Appeals approved the campaign’s request for a speedy review of the dismissal, where the judge issued an order shooting claims of widespread irregularities with mail-in ballots.

The case was seen as a long shot to block Biden’s inauguration, but was one of the Trump campaign’s best hopes of influencing election results through the courts, with the state’s 20 electoral votes at stake. Fixed.

US district court Judge Matthew Bran wrote in his order that Trump asked the court to disarm nearly 7 million voters. Seeking such a “shocking result”, he said, a plaintiff could be expected to provide compelling legal arguments and “factual evidence of rampant corruption”, but “it has not happened.”

The Trump campaign filed a lawsuit in federal court in Nevada and Arizona earlier this month.

Meanwhile, the American General Services Administration has acknowledged Biden’s victory, and a formal transition to Biden’s entry is underway.

Biden’s transition team has been in contact with every federal agency until Tuesday afternoon, and is expected to soon begin receiving the president’s daily brief, which the White House gave the green signal, two administration officials told Fox News .
