Trump tried to steal 2020 election

To the editor:

I found it deliciously ironic that on the same day a letter to the editor claiming that the 2020 presidential election was stolen was published, an Arizona grand jury indicted former President Donald Trump’s chief of staff Mark Meadows, lawyer Rudy Giuliani, and several other Republicans for attempting to overturn Trump’s Arizona loss to Joe Biden. According to the Associated Press, the indictment names “11 Republicans who submitted a document to Congress falsely declaring that Trump won Arizona in 2020. They include the former state party chair, a 2022 U.S. Senate Candidate and two sitting state lawmakers who are charged with nine counts of conspiracy, fraud and forgery.”

The claim that the 2020 election was stolen from Trump is false. As the news from Arizona — and previous similar cases from Nevada, Michigan, Wisconsin, and Georgia–attests, Trump and some of his supporters certainly tried to steal it from Biden, though. And they are now being held accountable for their dishonesty and unfairness in court.
