NEWSMAX: As the Arizona Senate holds its hearing on the forensic Maricopa County election audit, former President Donald Trump reissued his rebuke of Fox News’ early call on the state in the 2020 presidential election to Joe Biden.
Trump trumpeted outcome-determinative numbers of suspect votes being uncovered by the audit, which were discussed at Thursday’s Senate hearing, but the official forensic audit report will be released “at a later date,” barring what Republicans say is obstruction by Maricopa County officials.
“The irregularities revealed at the hearing today amount to hundreds of thousands of votes or, many times what is necessary for us to have won,” Trump wrote in a statement from his Save America PAC. “Despite these massive numbers, this is the state that Fox News called early for a Biden victory.
“There was no victory here, or in any other of the swing states either.”
The Trump White House vehemently objected to Fox News’ Election Night decision desk projecting Biden to win the state, arguing it turned the public face of the election as polls were still open and votes will still coming in via mail-in ballots in key battleground states that adopted mass mail-in balloting due to COVID-19 precautions.
“Arizona Senate hearings on the Maricopa County Election Audit is devastating news to the Radical Left Democrats and the Biden administration,” Trump’s statement began. “While this, according to the Senate, is preliminary, with results being announced at a later date, it seems that 74,243 mail-in ballots were counted with ‘no clear record of them being sent.’
“There were 18,000 voters who were scrubbed from the voter rolls AFTER the election. They also revealed that the voting system was breached or hacked (by who?). Very big printer and ballot problems with different paper used, etc., and MUCH MORE.”
The auditors are still seeking information from Maricopa County officials on the election and are reviving plans to canvass from door to door to interview voters about the 2020 election, The Arizona Republic reported Thursday.
