'We Must Decertify the Election': Trump Quotes AZ Senator in Explosive Statement
Trump drops bombshell following Maricopa County hearing
Donald Trump responded to the explosive two-hour hearing on the audit findings of the Maricopa County results of the 2020 election.
Trump's statement was clear and to the point:
“Arizona Senate hearings on the Maricopa County Election Audit is devastating news to the Radical Left Democrats and the Biden Administration,” Trump wrote.
Trump noted that over 74,000 ballots had been counted “with no clear record of them being received.”
Arizona GOP Chairwoman Dr. Kelli Ward said on Twitter:
“Canvassing is necessary."
“It is the one way to know if the problems are real problems or just clerical mistakes. There are ~ 74,000 ballots that came back, but there is no indication that they were ever sent out by the county!”
Canvassing is necessary. It is the one way to know if the problems are real problems or just clerical mistakes. There are ~ 74,000 ballots that came back but there is no indication that they were ever sent out by the county! From #FOIA shows logs don’t match!— Dr. Kelli Ward 🇺🇸 (@kelliwardaz) July 15, 2021
Trump added the audit hearing revealed, “[v]ery big printer and ballot problems with different paper used.”
According to leader Doug Logan, the team witnesses that many ballots show what appears to be Sharpie marks bleeding leaking through the ballots.
Logan said that it “can potentially cause you to vote for someone that you didn’t intend to vote for.”

Maricopa County said it would use a bleed-proof paper called VoteSecure to avoid the problem.
If the picture is verifiable, then it would suggest another paper was used for some ballots.
In the light of the findings, Trump said, the county “refuses to work together with the Senate and others who are merely looking for honesty, integrity, and transparency.”
The Arizona Republican Party appeared to bac the allegations.
They wrote on Twitter:
"Arizona Audit meeting at AZ State Senate reveals Maricopa County still has not provided many materials needed for complete audit – including routers, chain of custody, and images of mail-in ballots.”

Democrats would need to complete the necessary audits to support their claims that there was no fraud in the 2020 election.
But they are doing the exact opposite, which suggests they are hiding something due to their lack of cooperation.
“Why do the Commissioners not want to look into this corrupted election?” Trump continued.
“What are they trying to hide?”
Trump concluded his statement with this:
“The highly respected State Senator Wendy Rogers said in a tweet the hearing today means we must decertify the election,” Trump wrote.
“In any event, the Senate patriots are moving forward with final results to be announced in the not-too-distant future, but based on today’s hearing, why even wait?”
Trump's use of the phrase “decertify the election” is most likely to have leftists and Demcorats up in arms, but Rogers supported his words.

In another tweet, Rogers called “for the Biden electors to be recalled to Arizona” and declared that “a new election must be conducted.”
I have heard enough. With the tens of thousands of ballots mailed without being requested, the over ten thousand people who voted after registering after November 3rd, the failure of Maricopa to turn over the 40% machines, the passwords that Dominion still refuses (1/2)— Wendy Rogers (@WendyRogersAZ) July 15, 2021
Though Trump did not directly endorse the decertification of the 2020 election, he did, however, call for full audit findings to be released.
The audit results are expected to be released at the end of July.
“We are finishing up — the vendor is finishing up what we call the aggregation: double-checking the spreadsheets against the blue tally sheets, against the scans they did on the ballots,” AZ Senate President Karen Fann said.
