AmFest 2022 founder Charlie Kirk invited Kari Lake to come back to the conference after the groundbreaking news that a Maricopa County judge has ordered a two-day trial in the election lawsuit brought by Lake after the election was called in favor of Katie Hobbs, even after a day of irregularities and voting mishaps at centers throughout the county.


Harmeet Dhillon, who fast became an AmFest audience favorite after she was endorsed by Tim Pool and won in the Amfest straw poll demanding new RNC leadership, concluded her speech before Kari Lake took the stage.

Lake stepped out to more rousing applause and cheers, and had to wait a bit before beginning her announcement, as the crowd broke out into chants of, “Kari! Kari! Kari!”

They quieted, and Lake was able to proceed.

“Hey, Guys, guess what? Christmas came early, yesterday! We are going to trial! This is so historic, and you know what? I couldn’t have done it without you.”

During her featured speech on Monday, Lake asked for prayers for all aspects of the litigation, including the judge reviewing the legal documents and rendering a decision.

“Yesterday, we got great news–we’re taking these bastards to trial.

“And I’m so excited. You know I ran against our own version of Joe Biden here, Katie Hobbs. Basement Hobbs. She ducked out on the debate, but she can’t duck out from taking the stand in our trial. She will have to take the stand. Katie Hobbs is gonna have to put her hand on the Bible and swear to tell the truth. That might be hard. That might be hard. And so is Stephen Richer, they’re going to have to swear to tell the truth. And I just want to remind them that perjury is a felony.


The crowd broke out into laughter and more applause.

“So, we’re really excited. We’re really excited. We have an excellent case. Our trial begins Wednesday and goes on into Thursday. And we need you to continue to pray for our team—this is serious stuff what’s going on here. We have a chance to show the world that our elections are truly corrupt and we won’t take it anymore. And so, we need your prayers.

“We are going to be taking the stand on trial in Mesa on Wednesday and Thursday. We still need those prayers for our team, they’re working overtime on this.

“I just want you to know, that I’m not going to stop fighting. We’re going to keep going, as I said, all the way to the Supreme Court if we have to. Because if we don’t have fair and honest elections, we have nothing in this country. Do you agree with me on that?

The audience began to cheer again and applaud to register their agreement.

“How many of you agree that election integrity, honest elections is the most important issue facing us right now?

The audience once again broke out into applause to express their agreement. Lake knew she was preaching to the choir.


“I just want to thank you, because I know after that debacle on November 8, that you guys have been standing firm with me in this foxhole and I know that you won’t stop. So, thank you for your prayers, keep them coming, we will keep you posted. Let’s go on to victory. Thank you! Thank you, Turning Point.”

Her announcement was less than five minutes and is 2 hours and 14 minutes in.
