Top Trump Allies Charged in Arizona Election Case

If you thought all the drama regarding election cases was over, sit back down.

Charges were just announced in Arizona against a slew of Trump allies.

Among those being charged are former Trump attorney and former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani and Trump’s former Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.

Here We Go Again

Arizona was one of several battleground states that Trump believed the voting was rigged.

This was largely due to how much the results swung in Joe Biden’s favor when early and absentee ballots were counted.

In Arizona, Trump had a huge lead on election day, beating Biden 66-32% for ballots cast that day.

The problem was that most Democrat voters chose to use absentee and early voting, which was won by Biden, 52-47%, with far more votes being cast in that fashion than on election day.

The result was a win by Biden of about 10,500 votes.

While it does not appear that Trump will be charged in the case, this is not going to be good for Republicans, and it just gives the media and Democrats more fodder to use in the upcoming election.

In announcing the charges, Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes, a Democrat, stated, “A state grand jury made up of everyday regular Arizonans, has now handed down felony indictments for all 11 Republican electors as well as several others connected to this scheme.

“These are serious indictments, but this is the first hurdle the state must pass in our constitutional criminal justice system. We intend to prove these crimes were committed beyond a reasonable doubt.”

This election was investigated by the Arizona Senate, where Republicans have a majority.

Their investigation did not turn up irregularities and actually increased Joe Biden’s win by 360 votes.

In addition to Meadows and Guiliani, notable Trump allies facing charges are Jenna Ellis, John Eastman, Christina Bobb, Boris Epshteyn, and Michael Roman.
