(Sep. 24, 2021) — As tweeted by his former campaign attorney, Jenna Ellis, 45th President of the United States Donald J. Trump issued a statement early Friday afternoon in advance of the release of a report of a forensic election audit in Maricopa County, AZ containing specific numbers of “fraudulent votes, mystery votes, and “fake votes.”
Referring to early mainstream reports stating the audit will show Joe Biden won the majority of votes in the county, Trump wrote, “The Fake News is lying about the Arizona audit report! The leaked report conclusively shows there were enough fraudulent votes, mystery votes, and fake votes to change the outcome of the election 4 or 5 times over. The number includes 23,344 mail-in ballots, despite the person no longer living at that address…”
The “leaked” document is only a partial result of the audit, Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers tweeted Thursday night.
Continuing, he claimed the “official canvass” has a discrepancy of 11,592 against the audit results, “more than the entire Presidential Election margin.”
According to the results certified by the Arizona Secretary of State and governor in late November, Biden won the state by 10,457 votes, as Trump noted later in his statement.
Individuals who voted in multiple counties total 10,342, Trump said, and “There were also 2,592 ‘more duplicate ballots than original ballots.'”
Those numbers total “50,252,” Trump wrote, and “election data appears to have been intentionally deleted.”
Earlier Friday, the polling company Rasmussen Reports tweeted a reference to an Arizona law, “Tampering with a public record.”
The Arizona Senate will be holding a hearing at 1:00 p.m. PDT/4:00 p.m. EDT to reveal the findings of the audit conducted earlier this summer by Cyber Ninjas and several assisting entities. Live streaming is here: https://www.azleg.gov/videoplayer/?clientID=6361162879&eventID=2021091005
