This is the October 7, 2021 hearing on "Assessing the Election 'Audit' in Arizona and Threats to American Democracy," held before the U.S. House Committee on Oversight and Reform. From the Opening Statement of Carolyn B. Maloney: "On November 3, 2020, Joe Biden beat Donald Trump clearly and decisively in the Presidential election. President Biden won 306 electoral votes to Trump's 232, and he beat Trump in the popular vote by more than 7 million votes. But rather than accept his loss, Donald Trump tried everything he could to overturn the will of American voters. He and his allies filed more than 60 lawsuits with false claims of election fraud and lost all 60 of them. He waged a pressure campaign at every level of government--from county election officials to secretaries of state, to the Department of Justice, to his own Vice President--to try to prevent the certification of the election results. At each stage, Donald Trump and his allies were asked to bring forward evidence that the election was tainted by widespread voter fraud. But whether in Michigan or Pennsylvania or, as we will hear today, Arizona, the purveyors of the big lie repeatedly failed to produce one scintilla of credible evidence of widespread fraud." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Jack Sellers, William Gates, David Becker, Gowri Ramachandran, Ken Bennett, and Doug Logan.
