Former President Trump has extended his attack on Arizona Democrat trying to stop an audit in the state's Maricopa County of the 2020 election results, calling the effort "insane," and warning the effort "won't be good for the Dems."

"The radical left Democrat Party has gone absolutely insane in fighting the forensic audit of the 2020 presidential election Scam right now taking place in the Great State of Arizona," Trump said in a statement Tuesday from his Save America PAC. "They sent a team of over 100 lawyers to try and stop it because they know what the result of the Arizona Senate sponsored audit will be – and it won't be good for the Dems."

He comment as Democrats' legal efforts to stop the forensic audit resumed Tuesday, after a judge over the weekend recused himself and a new judge was appointed. 

Trump who lost Arizona to now-President Biden in 2020 and argue they audit, called for the Republican leaders of the state's GOP-controlled Senate, is being independently run with no advantage to either party.

He also argued that Arizona voters also lost last year.

"They know that they lost," he said in the statement. "They also know that the Arizona State Legislature approved virtually none of their many election requests, which is totally unconstitutional."
