PHOENIX (ChurchMilitant.com) - The presidential race in Arizona — the closest of all 50 states according to the numbers tabulated — is still in play despite the state having certified its vote.
To the chagrin of many, Arizona's secretary of state, governor, attorney general and chief justice of the supreme court all met on Monday to certify the vote. Simultaneously, down the street, the Trump legal team — along with selected Arizona legislators — joined experts and witnesses at an election integrity hearing to uncover massive voter fraud.
It was a picture of contradiction that was not lost on President Donald Trump. Keenly aware of both meetings taking place, the president took to Twitter on Monday to express his frustration.
"Why is he rushing to put a Democrat in office, especially when so many horrible things concerning voter fraud are being revealed at the hearing going on right now [?]" the president tweeted of Republican Gov. Doug Ducey. "Republicans will long remember!"
In the midst of the certification signing ceremony, it appears Trump called Ducey on his cell phone.
Ducey had told reporters last summer he changed his ringtone to play "Hail to the Chief" whenever the White House calls. That was the ringtone heard while Ducey was in the meeting to certify. It was reported that Ducey quickly silenced his phone.
Meanwhile, at the election integrity meeting a few blocks away, witnesses were providing ample evidence of voter fraud.

Highlights of this public hearing included claims of a massive illegal vote dump and the disabling of Republican vote-checkers, along with mathematicians declaring the impossibility of a Biden win.
Nevertheless, the most important news may have come from one witness — cybersecurity expert and retired army colonel Phil Waldron — who claimed there is now evidence that Dominion voting machines did indeed connect through the internet to servers in Frankfurt, Germany for potential vote manipulation.
Waldron confirmed he would testify under oath that so-called white-hat hackers had obtained the information to verify this. The reference is to officials who have uncovered potentially criminal activity.
Dominion representatives have continuously denied their voting machines were connected to the internet or that they have any relation to Frankfurt, Germany.
In other news from the hearing, witnesses say at 8 p.m. on election night they observed 35,000 illegal votes being added to Democrat candidates. According to testimony by a Pima County tech provider, the tally recorder and Democratic Party embedded 35,000 votes, which got distributed evenly so as to avoid being noticed.
But they may not have been fully successful. The illegal vote dump coincided with data analytics showing an unusual spike in votes at that time on election night. If proven, Trump would surge ahead of Biden by 25,000 votes.
With regard to the tabulation of votes, Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai, an engineer, mathematician and former Massachusetts Senate candidate, offered expert testimony on technology and data that uncovered what seems to be a statistical impossibility regarding ballot counting.
His main claim was that for Biden to have won after Trump's significant early lead on election night, he would've had to have won 130% of the Democratic votes in Maricopa County, with Trump garnering a negative 30%.
Another expert mathematician, Bobby Piton, declared he never would have certified the results. Based on the data, the numbers are fraudulent, Piton insisted:
I believe [the numbers] are fraudulent based on the data ... I'd be willing to put my life on it, I'm that sure, assuming that the data that I got from the state and everything else was accurate. So if you're giving me all inaccurate data from everywhere, then that's my only caveat.
Perhaps not so coincidentally, while Piton was speaking at the hearing, his Twitter account was permanently banned.
Trump's legal team reminded the legislators present that they're the ones with the authority and constitutional responsibility to invalidate any certification they deem fraudulent. Trump team attorney Jenna Ellis made clear that they and their colleagues are charged to safeguard election integrity.
Persuaded by all the evidence, incoming state senator Wendy Rogers tweeted: "After we in Arizona award our electors to @realDonaldTrump, I want to see arrests made and some perp walks!"
State Rep. Mark Finchem said within a couple of days he would propose a binding resolution to keep Arizona's votes from going to Biden. However, the House and Senate would have to reconvene in order for the legislature to appoint a new set of electors.
In related news, GOP state chairman Kelli Ward scored a victory in court this week. A Maricopa County judge ruled Republicans may examine 100 random mail-in ballot envelopes and compare them to voter signatures on file. After finding instances of ballot irregularities, the state Republican Party is now asking to inspect 2,500 more ballots "to ensure confidence in the election results."
Ward, disgusted with state leadership, lashed out in a recent video at Gov. Ducey and Secretary of State Katie Hobbs.
