As President Trump’s legal team continues to look to state legislatures to overturn election results, Trump Campaign legal adviser Jenna Ellis tweeted on Friday an event invitation to a Monday hearing with members of the Arizona Legislature on election integrity.
The hearing is being held from a Phoenix Hyatt Hotel rather than from the state capitol.
The event description falsely claims, “...State Legislatures have the sole authority to select their representatives to the Electoral College.”
Arizona Secretary of State Katie Hobbs and Republican members of the state legislature have publicly shot down those claims.
Trump’s legal team held a similar hearing with Pennsylvania Republican lawmakers on Wednesday, after the Trump campaign touted upcoming state legislature public hearings in Pennsylvania, Arizona and Michigan. The president phoned in to baselessly say he believes the outcome of the 2020 election should be overturned and that he was “cheated” out of a victory.
At Wednesday’s hearing, Guiliani presented a series of witnesses with claims of what they believed to be election irregularities in Pennsylvania.
