Trump Calls For PA Election Audit

Pennsylvania’s 2020 election is still on former President Donald Trump’s mind, seven months later. 

On Friday, Trump called on Pa. lawmakers to follow their counterparts in Maricopa County, Arizona, and commission a partisan audit of the results.

Trump issued a statement lauding three GOP state lawmakers who visited Arizona this week, who support auditing the results in the Keystone State and applied pressure to two other GOP leaders in the state Senate to greenlight the operation. 

“Great patriots led by State Senator Doug Mastriano, Senator Cris Dush, and State Representative Rob Kauffman went to Maricopa County, Arizona, to learn the best practices for conducting a full Forensic Audit of the 2020 General Election. Now the Pennsylvania Senate needs to act. Senate President Jake Corman needs to fulfill his promise to his constituents to conduct a full Forensic Audit. Senator Dave Argall, Chairman of the State Government Committee, has to authorize the subpoenas, if necessary. The people of Pennsylvania and America deserve to know the truth. If the Pennsylvania Senate leadership doesn’t act, there is no way they will ever get re-elected!,” Trump wrote.

The release from Trump noticeably didn’t mention state Rep. Seth Grove (R-York), who issued a statement on Thursday saying that the chamber “will not be authorizing any further audits of any previous election.” Grove chairs the state House committee that oversees election matters. 

On Tuesday, Maggie Haberman, Washington correspondent for the New York Times, sent out a tweet saying that Trump “has been telling a number of people he’s in contact with that he expects he will get reinstated by August.” 

However, legal analysts argue that Trump cannot simply be reinstated into the presidency

The Associated Press reported two weeks ago that Mastriano said in a radio interview with WEEO-FM in Chambersburg that he met with Trump for “an hour and fifteen minutes” at Trump Tower in New York and said that the former President has previously asked him to run for Governor and pledged to campaign for him. 

However, Jason Miller, a senior Trump aide sent a tweet after Mastriano made those comments and said that the former President “has not made any endorsement or commitments yet in this race.”

This also isn’t the first time that Trump has issued a public statement regarding the 2020 presidential election, while mentioning a member of the Pennsylvania General Assembly. 

In December, Trump sent out a tweet thanking House Speaker Bryan Cutler (R-Lancaster) and falsely accused corruption in the outcome of the Pennsylvania election results. 

Joe Biden bested Trump in Pennsylvania in 2020 by just over 1 point.

    Speaking of AUDIT, when are we going to see those tax returns?

  2. Rod Serling says:

    I have it on good authority, the highest authority, that the UFOs we’ve been seeing are actually Trump’s honor guard waiting for him to re-assume the Presidency in August. What a glorious day that will be! All the GOP faithful will greet him in their tinfoil hats. Glory be to the almighty.

  3. Republican Freeloader says:

    We need our true hero, Donald J.Trump back in power. The election was stolen!! Hugo Chavez’s ghost was responsible for this. If you don’t believe me just ask Michael Flynn. Now there is an honest guy if I ever saw one.

  4. Ibrahim Boris says:

    At this point there is about a 97% chance that Trump is reinstalled as president by the constitution. Q was right the whole time! It’s only a matter of time before all of the deep state swampers are arrested and their plans foiled most likely by Mueller and Flynn. They are only keeping the seat warm for when the fraud finally goes public and Trump gets reinstalled as president. He had a plan all along!

      You are delusional
      This time your follower will be shot down as they approach the WH or Capitol t

  5. Sgt. Seatbelt says:

    I don’t like it folks, but Biden won by just over 80,000 votes in PA.

  6. RBS says:

    Read transcripts of House “State Government Committee” hearings for admissions of fraud by the perps … under oath

    1. DUHg Mastriano says:

      Yea. Everyone watched it or pieces of it. Failures of polling procedures and things that sound bad aren’t election fraud, Bob.

      1. RBS says:

        no one knew it was occurring, and fraudulent failures of great import were admitted

        1. DUHg Mastriano says:

          No. They weren’t.

          Nothing is going on.

          There will be no great reveal of fraud and there won’t be a Trump return to Presidency.

          The guy built a career on lying and scamming people, lawyering up and making it cost ineffective to fight him. He’s a scum bag. He lies. You are a shmuck for believing anything that guy says.

  7. RBS says:

    as per The Donald’s speech last night, aired only by Newsmax, One America News and Right Side Broadcasting Network (not FNC, notably), the GOP is embracing Forensic Audits [the results thereof will properly be publicized, as is planned for Phoenix by month’s end]

  8. RBS says:

    During today’s Harrisburg rally, Doug et al. were accompanied by motorcyclists and a band; although it would not be appropriate to divulge the specifics of what was said, suffice to suggest strongly that the working-hypothesis is indeed a Senate-run Forensic Audit.

    I have written extensively on this issue and annotated the ten hearings conducted by Grove; his adherence to bipartisanship was punctured both @ the beginning of the last event and subsequently by Wolf; if Seth truly wants reform, the only way to muster political support for his suggestions is to have completed a clean audit that dramatizes the Dem-corruption and the urgency to rectify it.

    Anyone who wishes to review “the receipts” proving fraud via sworn testimony is invited to contact me; despite the derogatory tone of this piece [“falsely accused corruption”], the SCOTUS can do whatever it desires, as was dramatized in 2000.

        Go email the Federal Elections Commission with your “facts”. Stop dragging down the Republican Party.

          1. DUHg Mastriano says:

            The GOP is being threatened by the former president to buy his endorsement and he uses this lie to remain relevant and distract from the grand jury investigation, Bob.

            Get over it. Move on and focus on the next election. Not a guy who threatens to primary people who don’t blindly support his every move while he pays porn stars for sex.

    2. The Huckabeast says:

      Ding Dong Doug is a traitor who was photographed on the US Capitol grounds during the January 6th Trump ordered insurrection. He paid to bus people in to participate in the attempt to stop the constitutionally required transfer of power. Ding Dong Doug is unfit to serve n any elective office.

      1. RBS says:

        he’s a patriot

        1. The Huckabeast says:

          You say potato, I say traitor…. A patriot believes in and supports the smooth transfer of power which is the cornerstone of our democracy. Putin is even taking up the call for recounts and audits – Putin, Trump, Rudy, Flynn and Ding Dong Doug – working together to take down America….. AKA TRAITORS

  9. Benny Franklin says:

    This is devastating to the democratic process to continually call into question election results of 8 months ago. It is the high point of being a VERY sore loser. Say what you want about Al Gore he did not pull this horsephooey. He took his defeat with honor. He went on with his life. The Arizona fiasco is a farce of all farces and for PA Republicans to stroll around the weird vote count in Arizona wanting to bring it to PA is a dumb move politically.

    1. The Huckabeast says:

      Exactly and remember Al Gore got taken out by the bare minimum 5-4 Supreme Court decision by the conservative majority. Also remember that Sandra Day O’Conner was video taped on election night at a party upset that Gore might win and she wanted to retire under a Republican president so another conservative would replace her.

      But regardless, Trump and Ding Dong Doug are traitorous ASSHOLES.

    2. Curious George says:

      What is devastating to the democratic process is not doing a full review of all accusations. That should be done and then it could be put to bed. Those who block a film review raise more suspicions and hurt the democratic process.

      1. Curious George says:

        *full review

        1. DUHg Mastriano says:

          George, there were so many ridiculous accusations, maybe there were some that people missed? It would have been prudent for the trump legal team to use some of the money they duped out of people to include legitimate complaints you refer to.

          Unfortunately, they didn’t. Unfortunately, people believe claims of a fraud where there are polling place violations. That isn’t fraud. It’s just people who are volunteers and aren’t trained.

          In the meantime, there have been reviews of accusations by the offices charged with overseeing them.

          It’s over. Move on. There wasn’t a grand scam.

    Are they sure Trump was not calling for a cheeseburger and diet Pepsi?

  11. The Huckabeast says:

    This jackoff just needs to go into a hole and never come out. Mastriano and Dush have no business going to another state appearing to represent the interests on Pennsylvania citizens. And as far as DING DONG DOUG running for Governor, he would be disqualified because he was part of the January 6th insurrection. He is not fit to hold public office. DING DONG DOUG.

  12. DUHg Mastriano says:

    What a Hhhhuuuuuuage Loooser. Huuuuge.

    Who cares what this tit calls for?
