Kari Lake Says Trump Doesn’t Need A VP

A report reveals that Kari Lake, who ran for governor of Arizona, said that former President Trump does not require a running mate if he is reelected.

Lake and Tim Pool spoke about her battle against fraud in elections in Arizona and the presidential election in 2024 on the latest episode of The Culture War, Pool’s podcast, published on Sunday.

Lake, including Marjorie Taylor Greene and others, mentioned as potential Trump VP picks, is skeptical that the position will benefit the 45th president.

Kari Lake stated that Trump has incredible strength. She didn’t think he needed a vice president, but legally he does, so he should choose someone the media dislikes even more than he does and who will be devoted to him.  Someone who has been faithful and will remain loyal.  

She said that people are concerned about Biden, but they are more concerned about Vice President Kamala Harris right now. She is inept. So, obviously, they’re hoping to get rid of Biden, but the second option is just as awful in practice. 

Tim Pool remarked that they don’t have anyone.

According to a report, Kari Lake’s 3-day trial about the verification of signatures fraud in the 2022 election in Maricopa County Superior Court concluded yesterday.

After having her suit first denied, Lake is back in court, this time before Judge Peter Thompson, to challenge Maricopa County’s failure to check signatures on ballot affidavits.  

Jacqueline Onigkeit, a signature examiner for Maricopa County, said that she and other level-one signature examiners were troubled by the prevalence of signatures on ballot certifications that did not match the voter’s identity. 

She said the immediate supervisors and County workers were “overwhelmed” by the volume of rejected votes and routed them back to level one reviewers.

Kurt Olsen, an attorney for Kari Lake, said 11 employees who verified signatures had a 99.97% approval record.  Olsen disclosed that the verification and comparison of about 274,000 voter signatures took just under three seconds each.

The judge will consider the case, and a decision is due within the next week.
