Former President Donald Trump called out State Sen. Dave Argall (R-29) on Friday to act on a “full forensic audit” of the 2020 Election in Pennsylvania.
In a statement released on his site donaldjtrump.com, Trump praised fellow Pennsylvania lawmakers for attending the election audit currently underway in Arizona. That’s the audit liberals have claimed is partisan buffoonery. Any mention of this audit gets their heads spinning as you’re not allowed to even question the results of the vote.
For example, Gov. Tom Wolf on Friday tweeted several Democrat talking points to prove our point:
What they’re calling for isn’t an “audit.”
It’s a taxpayer-funded disinformation campaign and a disgrace to democracy.
Pennsylvania had a free and secure election. That’s a fact.
Pennsylvanians deserve better from their elected officials. https://t.co/krSkyKQgwu

He used all the key buzzwords, didn’t he? “Disinformation campaign” … “Free and secure election” … “That’s a fact.”
Wolf’s clearly triggered.
The Arizona audit is being conducted because many in that state believe the 2020 Election results are fraudulent and that Trump should have been declared the winner there. Trump believes he also won Pennsylvania.
Trump Calls Out Argall in Statement on Pennsylvania Election Audit
In his statement on Friday, Trump says, “Great patriots led by State Senator Doug Mastriano, Senator Cris Dush, and State Representative Rob Kauffman went to Maricopa County, Arizona, to learn the best practices for conducting a full Forensic Audit of the 2020 General Election. Now the Pennsylvania Senate needs to act.”
He then calls on specific Senators, including Argall, to get the process started on a full audit of the Pennsylvania vote. Joe Biden was declared the winner of the Pennsylvania vote by a 50-49% margin with the result changing after mail-in ballots were counted in the days after Election Day.
“Senate President Jake Corman needs to fulfill his promise to his constituents to conduct a full Forensic Audit. Senator Dave Argall, Chairman of the State Government Committee, has to authorize the subpoenas, if necessary,” Trump says.
Trump warns Pennsylvania Senate Republicans that if they don’t act on this audit, they likely won’t get re-elected.
“The people of Pennsylvania and America deserve to know the truth. If the Pennsylvania Senate leadership doesn’t act, there is no way they will ever get re-elected,” he says.
Argall was a key figure after the 2020 Election in Pennsylvania. On the day before Thanksgiving, he chaired a meeting – at Mastriano’s request – of the Pennsylvania Senate Majority Policy Committee at a Gettysburg hotel. That meeting was attended by former New York Mayor and Trump attorney Rudy Giuliani who presented evidence to show irregularities in the 2020 Election in Pennsylvania.
Trump called in to that hearing by phone.
The Senator who represents Schuylkill County in Harrisburg was sharply criticized by Democrats for even holding that committee hearing. Some even suggested a wild and thoroughly debunked conspiracy theory that it wasn’t a legal meeting.
Argall, in an interview with The Canary after that hearing, said he believed that that hearing was about future election reform, too. And that, yes, it was a legal meeting. He said he held the hearing because his office had fielded more than 25,000 phone calls and emails about the Election in the days after it.
He stopped short of saying that he believed the hearing would result in an overturned election result. Those early attempts to prove election fraud obviously fell short of the goal but Republicans in some states are persistent in proving potential election fraud as it relates to the 2020 Presidential vote.
Argall Supports 2020 Election Audit in Pennsylvania
In a statement to The Canary on Friday after being called out by President Trump, Argall said he supports the call for an election audit in Pennsylvania.
“I support the call for an election audit, in order to answer any lingering questions that still remain about the fairness of the 2020 elections in Pennsylvania. This is the best path forward to address the legitimate concerns of the large majority of my constituents who voted to re-elect President Trump, as well as all Pennsylvanians,” he says. “This is just one of many election reform efforts which I hope to see approved here in the next few weeks.”
Any election reform measures – like potentially overturning Act 77 that paved the way for unchecked mail-in ballots in Pennsylvania – are likely to be met with resistance and a “disinformation campaign” launched by Democrats like Tom Wolf who will claim they’re an attempt to “suppress the vote” (see Florida, Georgia, Texas).
