(USA Features) Former President Donald Trump railed at Democrats Tuesday for opposing a Republican-led audit of some 2.1 million ballots cast in Maricopa County, Ariz., last fall.
“The radical left Democrat Party has gone absolutely insane in fighting the forensic audit of the 2020 presidential election Scam right now taking place in the Great State of Arizona,” Trump wrote in a statement to Newsmax from his Save America PAC.
“They sent a team of over 100 lawyers to try and stop it because they know what the result of the Arizona Senate sponsored audit will be — and it won’t be good for the Dems,” he added.
The former president said transparency would go a long way towards re-instilling trust in the system after the chaotic post-election cycle last year. But, he said, Democrats are behaving as though they have something to hide.
“The audit is independently run, with no advantage to either side, but the Democrats don’t want to hear anything about it because they know that they lost Arizona, and other scam election States, in a landslide,” Trump said. “They also know that the Arizona State Legislature approved virtually none of their many election requests, which is totally unconstitutional.”
Free and fair elections are vital to preserve the country’s democratic institutions, Trump added.
“The people of Arizona are very angry, as are the people of our country,” Trump’s statement concluded. “If we can’t have free and fair elections, we don’t have a country. The audit must continue. America deserves the truth!”
