Major Legal Questions Facing Abe Hamadeh, Top Supporters like Kelli and Michael Ward

Washington, DC — Abe Hamadeh, Donald Trump’s handpicked AG candidate in Arizona, has had his fair share of legal problems, from getting sued by his own father, to Arizona veterans wondering why he’s being investigated by the U.S. Army Reserve, to lying to voters about his complete lack of legal experience. And even his top allies have major legal questions flying around about them.

Kelli Ward, a Hamadeh supporter and the Arizona GOP Chair, pleaded the Fifth Amendment during a legal proceeding to obtain her phone records – thanks to her involvement with the January 6th insurrection where more than a hundred law enforcement officers were injured and several later died.

Ward’s husband was an Arizona fake elector – a scheme that has attracted the attention of the U.S. Attorneys and other authorities across the country – and is a major Hamadeh supporter, including having a leadership role on his campaign and contributing $1,000 to his race.

Both Wards are under subpoena right now – will Abe Hamadeh denounce their involvement in the January 6th insurrection and distance himself from them on the campaign trail?
