Trump Campaign Promoting a Monday Election Meeting in AZ, But It’s Likely to be as Nonsensical as Last Week’s Gettysburg Fiasco
Donald Trump, despite humiliating loss after humiliating loss, is still trying the challenge the election. Friday night saw another defeat as the recount in Wisconsin went sideways. The Trump team spent millions for a Milwaukee County recount only to end up an additional 132 votes behind.
But the “Elite Strike Force” is fighting on. The legal team pushing to have the elections results overturned have promised that they will be in Arizona on Monday and that they’ll have compelling evidence. It now seems, however, that the meeting will just be a group of Republicans sitting in a hotel ballroom.
In a Monday statement, Trump lawyer Jenna Ellis said, “We are pleased that the State Legislatures in Pennsylvania, Arizona and Michigan will be convening hearings to examine the November 3rd presidential election.”
The lawyer also tweeted, “Arizona State Legislature to hold hearing on election integrity Monday, November 30. Mayor Rudy Giuliani and I will be present on behalf of President Donald Trump.”

Democratic Arizona State senator Rebecca Rios shot down Ellis’ claim. She told reporters, “There is no legitimacy to that claim and there are no hearings being held on that issue on Monday or any other day.”
And NBC reporter Brahm Resnik tweeted, “UPDATE Trump campaign announced last week the ‘Arizona Legislature’ would hold public hearing on election. Here it is: Public event at downtown Phoenix Hyatt to ‘gather evidence’ for special session to do something. State Rep. Mark Finchem reportedly behind it.”

It is yet to be seen whether Donald Trump will be calling into the meeting again.
