President Trump has no public event on the White House agenda today, but is expected to join his lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, where Republican lawmakers are holding a “hearing” on fraud allegations in this month’s election, two sources know the plans told CN.
Trump expressed a strong interest in joining Giuliani on the trip and directed his assistants to plan his trip to Pennsylvania, several sources said.
The road, which would be the first in the Washington area since election day, was not on the White House’s public agenda published Tuesday night, but is being treated internally as an unannounced movement.
The event is a recent attempt by Trump and his allies to undermine confidence in the 2020 election and challenge the legitimacy of Joe Biden’s presidential election.
Republicans from the Trump campaign and the Pennsylvania Senate on Tuesday announced plans for the Gettysburg event, a meeting of the Pennsylvania Senate Majority Political Committee – seen as an effort to expose “irregularities” in the 2020 election.
The meeting is organized by the Pennsylvania State Senate GOP, which holds it in a hotel – not the State Capitol.
State and local election officials said there was no evidence of widespread voter fraud, and both the federal court and the Pennsylvania Supreme Court dismissed lawsuits designed to prevent the state from verifying the election results.
Remember: Pennsylvania on Tuesday also officially validated its achievements, sealing Biden’s victory in the most important battlefield state and officially awarding the state’s 20 voter votes to the president-elect.
