Arizona continues to wait and see whether anyone in the Grand Canyon State will be charged in connection with Donald Trump’s campaign to overturn the 2020 election, which brought about Trump’s fourth indictment on Monday in Georgia.
Here’s what to know about the latest charges and how they might connect to Arizona, where Trump’s team conducted a similar campaign to overturn the 2020 election.
He’ll likely be convicted of something, setting the stage for a January 6-like event on steroids. And Democrats are only too happy to bait conservatives on that front. But that’s for another time. We need to revisit this legal circus because it might not be over. Could there be a fifth indictment looming? Since the Georgia indictment, all eyes have turned to Arizona, where Democratic Gov. Katie Hobbs has called for an investigation over the 2020 election (via KTAR News):
Gov. Katie Hobbs said Tuesday that Arizona should press charges against former president Donald Trump over potential election interference in the 2020 election.
Hobbs told reporters at an event in Phoenix that Arizona Attorney General Kris Mayes should follow suit with Georgia, which indicted Trump on Monday.
“Absolutely. I have been an advocate for holding folks involved in trying to overturn the will of the voters in the 2020 election accountable and this is part of that process,” Hobbs, a Democrat, said.
Arizona had several mentions in the indictment, including meetings with Trump allies and lawmakers in the state following his loss to Joe Biden in November 2020.
Even former Republican Arizona governors think some action will arise. The state’s attorney general is already looking into the fake elector scheme (via Fox10 Phoenix):
Video shows Arizona’s fake electors, including former Arizona GOP chair, Kelli Ward, and state lawmakers Anthony Kern and Jake Hoffman, signing false electoral college documents declaring Trump the winner of the 2020 election.
Arizona’s Attorney General is currently investigating, and Governor Katie Hobbs says she hopes to see Arizona’s fake electors face criminal charges.
“I do. I do believe our attorney general is going to move forward on some kind of disciplinary action,” Former Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer said.
Former Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey said, “I am concerned about continuing indictments. I think we’re on number four. I’m concerned about how this is going to affect the electorate, the respect for the rule of law, and equal justice.”
Arizona’s last Republican governor criticized prosecutors for bringing criminal charges against former President Trump.
“We’ve never seen this with a former president of the United States,” said Doug Ducey on Tuesday.
“And the question I would have, is this good for our country or is it tearing our country apart?” he continued. “I believe it is divided enough.”
“I’m concerned about the weaponization of the Department of Justice,” Ducey said.
