Mastriano, Argall Holding Hearing with Giuliani (Maybe Trump) Today on 2020 Election Integrity
Pennsylvania’s Senate Majority Policy Committee will hold a hearing this afternoon to discuss “recent issues” surrounding the integrity of the 2020 election.
State Sen. Dave Argall (R-29) chairs the committee and organized Wednesday’s hearing at the request of Sen. Doug Mastriano (R-33).
Giuliani – Maybe Trump – Attending Pennsylvania Senate Hearing on 2020 Election Integrity
The committee hearing will be held at the Wyndham Hotel in Gettysburg at 12:30 and will be streamed live online. It’s likely to get some media attention because of who’s attending and who also might attend.
Argall’s committee is expected to host Rudy Giuliani, head of President Donald Trump’s legal team in its fight against the reported 2020 election results. And late breaking word suggests Trump may be in attendance at the hearing as well.
The committee is looking into the integrity, or lack thereof, of the 2020 General Election, specifically in Pennsylvania.
Giuliani has zeroed in, at least in part, on Pennsylvania’s role in potentially awarding the election victory to former Vice President Joe Biden. Trump is challenging the results in several key battleground states as his campaign maintains that illegal voting practices and issues with mail-in ballots stole the election from the incumbent President.
Argall has previously called on Pennsylvania Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar to resign for her activity leading up to the election held Nov. 3. He said in a statement Tuesday that the state’s actions earlier this month has led to a public mistrust of the election process.
“We want assurance that the issues encountered during this past election don’t happen again in the future,” Argall says.
Mastriano adds, “Elections are a fundamental principle of our democracy – unfortunately, Pennsylvanians have lost faith in the electoral system. It is unacceptable. Over the past few weeks, I have heard from thousands of Pennsylvanians regarding issues experienced at the polls, irregularities with the mail-in voting system and concerns whether their vote was counted. We need to correct these issues to restore faith in our republic.”
