Donald Trump called into an informal hearing held in Phoenix on Monday to attack Gov. Doug Ducey, who has been a staunch ally and defender of the President throughout the 2020 campaign.

Members of the Trump campaign held an informal hearing with Arizona lawmakers at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Phoenix. The group hoped to prompt a special session of the Legislature to investigate alleged voting irregularities from the general election.

Trump’s attorney Rudy Giuliani made unfounded claims about election fraud and called on witnesses to testify about alleged voting irregularities from the 2020 election.

Toward the end of the hearing, after Ducey and other state officials certified the statewide voting canvass, Trump called into the hearing to attack Ducey for signing off on the results:

"You have a governor named Ducey who just rushed, couldn't have gone faster, he just rushed to sign certificates so that Kelly gets into the Senate as soon as possible," Trump said. "What's that all about?"

Trump then went on to claim he won Arizona when he actually lost by more than 10,000 votes.
