Former US President Donald Trump has been fixated on a GOP-led investigation into the 2020 election outcome in Arizona and his advisors are concerned. 

Trump continues to question his aides about the Maricopa County vote recount many times a day, according to advisors, The Washington Post reported. One individual who spoke to the Post, on the condition of anonymity, said they paid attention to Trump for about 45 minutes as he discussed the election ballot audit. Trump continues to talk about it, he said.

Trump, the 45th President of the US, is actively seeking updates on the audit in Arizona. The former POTUS has also discussed using UV lights to test ballots with advisors. According to the report, experts believe that this approach could result in a loss of votes.

An order by the Republican-led Arizona State has led to the recounting of over 2.1 million ballots cast in the 2020 election. It is the most recent attempt by the former president and his supporters to claim unjustified wrongdoing in the county, originally begun on Thursday. 

“Why are the Democrats so desperate to stop this Election Fraud from being revealed? That answer is obvious! The Governor of Arizona, Doug Ducey, has been [of zero] help to the State Senate. He wants to 'pretend' the election was free and fair,” the statement by Trump read.

It added, “What are he and the Maricopa County Commissioners trying to hide? Our country needs the truth of the scam 2020 Election to be exposed. If it is not, just as if we have 'no borders' we cannot be a Great Nation.”

Trump emphasized the significance of honest votes in the statement, and assigning the votes the stature of being the lifeline of the US. He thanked the State Senators for launching this comprehensive forensic investigation and believed the findings would astound everyone.

On Thursday, Arizona Democrats filed a lawsuit to stop the investigation, denouncing it as a political effort to spread proven false voter fraud theories. Raquel Terán, a state senator and chair of the Arizona Democratic Party, told on Tuesday that the audit is a "sham audit" that is "fomenting the massive lie that the election was rigged."

Senate President Karen Fann has chosen an investigation team to look at the 2020 general election in Maricopa County, which will be headed by a firm run by a proponent of the “Stop the Steal” campaign. The firm has regularly claimed on social media about the dubious nature of the election that led to fall of former President Donald Trump, Arizona Mirror reported.
