Republican state senators in Arizona held a hearing Thursday to share the findings of an audit of 2020 presidential election results in Maricopa County.

Following the hearing full of allegations, former President Donald Trump issued a statement to his supporters via email.

“Arizona Senate hearings on the Maricopa County Election Audit is devastating news to the Radical Left Democrats and the Biden Administration,” Trump wrote.

He started by mentioning that more than 74,000 ballots had been counted “with no clear record of them being received.” This was one of the key findings mentioned in the audit hearing, and Arizona GOP Chairwoman Dr. Kelli Ward reiterated it on Twitter.

“Canvassing is necessary,” she wrote. “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!”

In addition, Trump said the audit hearing revealed “[v]ery big printer and ballot problems with different paper used.”

Despite the findings revealed Thursday, 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 seemed to confirm this allegation on Twitter, saying, “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.”

The former president concluded his statement by invoking an idea on the minds of many of his supporters.

“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?”
