It’s 2022. Midterm elections are only months away. It’s nearly been a year since President Joe Biden’s inauguration, and over a year since Donald Trump’s supporters failed to stop the 2020 Presidential Election from being certified. After all that time, Trump and his allies are still promising voters and donors that they can get it done and reverse the election.
Steve Bannon is awaiting his court date for refusing to comply with a subpoena to testify before Congress about anything he may know about the planning of the January 6th attack, who was involved in it, and what the then-president did as his supporters breached barriers, entered the Capitol Building, assaulted police, and threatened the lives of legislators. However, while he’s dodging the subpoena, he doesn’t seem to mind telling the general public, through his podcast, about further plans to attempt to subvert the government.
Bannon this morning says the purpose of the Trump rally in AZ today is to pressure the AZ legis to decertify the 2020 Biden electors, then PA, WI, and GA will follow suit and make Biden an illegitimate president in the minds of swing voters heading into the 2022 elections. pic.twitter.com/DOj4N8QyS9

According to Bannon, Donald Trump’s Saturday rally in Arizona is a step in the ‘decertification process’ — a process that does not exist. He claims that Arizona legislators will decertify the electors that were selected and certified for the 2020 election, and that once they do that, other states will follow suit, after which President Biden will officially be an illegitimate President.
Of course, it doesn’t actually work that way — Biden has been inaugurated and is the duly-elected President of the United States, and none of the election fraud and ‘rigging’ that Trump and his allies have repeatedly claimed has ever been supported by any evidence whatsoever.
