PHOENIX – Members of President Donald Trump’s legal team have scheduled a public hearing with select members of Arizona’s legislature to gather and examine any evidence of election irregularities and fraud in the state.
The hearing, planned to begin on Nov. 30 at 9 a.m., is intended to collect any evidence that would justify holding a special session for Arizona lawmakers to investigate further.
The event was billed as a “fact-finding hearing” featuring members of Trump’s legal team and members of the Arizona Legislature, but top leaders of the Republican-controlled Legislature told The Associated Press that the planned gathering was not an official legislative event.
According to press release by state Rep. Mark Finchem, R-Oro-Valley, the gathering is intended “to hear testimony and view evidence related to allegations of electoral compromise related to the 2020 election.”
Monday’s hearing will be at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Phoenix. Trump’s personal attorney Jenna Ellis and Rudy Giuliani are expected to attend. It wasn’t clear whether the Trump attorneys would be present in Phoenix or addressing the gathering remotely.
