Trump Accuses Phelan of Blocking Election Audit Legislation

On Saturday, former President Donald Trump again weighed in on the progress of forensic election audit legislation during the ongoing third special legislative session.

In a statement, Trump said:

Texas Speaker of the House Dade Phelan is another Mitch McConnell. He is not fighting for the people of Texas. Speaker Phelan should immediately move the Forensic Audit bill, SB 47 by Senator Bettencourt that passed out of the State Senate this week, to the floor. The Speaker knows the bill will overwhelmingly pass the House with Republican support.

The legislation Trump refers to passed the Senate on October 5. Though it was received by the House of Representatives the following day, they chose not to refer it to a House Committee when they convened thereafter, making the prospects for the legislation look increasingly bleak given that only about 10 days remain in the ongoing special session. Trump lauded the Senate last week for moving quickly on the legislation.
