Kari Lake’s lawsuit could help Trump get reinstated as president, lawyer says

A lawyer for Donald Trump has said Republican nominee for Arizona governor’s election impeachment Kari Lake could somehow help the former president return to the White House.

Attorney Christina Bobb made the comments during an appearance on Real America on One America News Network (OANN) while discussing Lake’s legal attempts to throw out the Arizona gubernatorial election, which she lost to Democrat Katie Hobbs.

Lake, a Trump loyalist who supports the false claim that the 2020 election was rigged due to widespread voter fraud, filed March 9.

Lake is also challenging confirmation of the midterm election results and is seeking a judge to declare her the winner of the race.

During the discussion of the lawsuit, OANN host Dan Ball asked Bobb if Lake wins and proves the Arizona election was “screwed up,” if Trump could also prove he was “ripped off” from the election he’s planning lost for more than two years.

“Well, it’s getting interesting,” replied Bobb, herself a former OANN presenter. “You know, I don’t know. I mean a state as we know. We would need three states, so I wouldn’t necessarily say right away, certainly maybe later.

“But I would expect Governor Lake to clean up the process,” Bobb added.

A first hearing for Lake’s lawsuit was held Tuesday before a judge in the Maricopa County Superior Court.

Lake is asking that a judge declare her winner of the Arizona gubernatorial election or order a recount of the Maricopa County vote.

During the trial, Judge Peter Thompson gave the defendants in the case — Maricopa County and Hobbs election officials — until 9 a.m. Monday, December 19, to file motions to dismiss the case, which the plaintiffs’ attorneys confirmed.

In a statement after the court hearing, Lake said, “Today’s hearing on my lawsuit was instructive. The judge took note of the amount of evidence my team had assembled. The defendants’ team seemed desperate to sweep it under the rug.

“I am grateful to Judge Peter Thompson and his team for their work and we are confident that, given the opportunity, we will expose this election as a fraud.”

Hobbs campaign manager Nicole DeMont called the lawsuit a “nuisance” in a statement the day after Lake filed her lawsuit.

“Kari Lake needs attention like a fish needs water,” added DeMont. “Independent experts and local election officials from both parties made it clear that this was a safe and fair election.”

Lake had dismissed an election lawsuit by an Arizona judge and sanctioned her attorneys after US District Court Judge John Tuchi wanted to deter those who might want to file “similar baseless lawsuits” in the future.
