Weeks after Joe Biden was declared the winner of the 2020 presidential campaign, some Republicans loyal to President Donald Trump continue to push unfounded allegations of fraud.

On Tuesday, Trump campaign attorney Jenna Ellis said that three state legislatures would hold hearings on the campaign’s conspiracy theories.

On Tuesday, Trump called into one such hearing, even though it was only with some Pennsylvania Republicans and held in a Wyndham Hotel instead of the state capitol.

“This election was rigged and we can’t let that happen,” Trump falsely claimed. “We won Pennsylvania by a lot. And we won all of these swing states by a lot.”

His Arizona “hearing” appears to be similar. After the campaign announced the hearings, the Republican leaders of the legislature denied that there would be official hearings.

Instead, as happened in Pennsylvania, it will just be a group of some Republicans renting a hotel ballroom, this time at the Hyatt Regency Phoenix, as reported by KPNX-TV reporter Brahm Resnik.
