Former President Donald Trump issued three statements in two days falsely claiming that voting fraud and irregularities cost him Arizona’s electoral votes.

Trump relied on comments made Thursday by contractors hired by state Senate Republicans to oversee a partisan review of the 2020 vote count in Maricopa County, which includes metro Phoenix.

This whole thing is a sham. No matter what this “forensic audit” reports, its results will be twisted into a damning account of the electoral system, even if that system has only minor flaws. This has the capability of utterly destroying a democracy by making every election suspect.
