During a December look on Steve Bannon’s War Room, a podcast hosted by Trump’s former White House chief strategist, Lake was requested what she discovered “out about herself in 2022?”

She replied: “When I walked away from my job in 2021 I really, for the primary time, handed my life over to God 100%. Not similar to 100% when the occasions are unhealthy, or like 95 p.c, I really mentioned to God ‘I do know I’m doing the precise factor, I do know that is what I have to do and I’m placing my life in your fingers.’

“And now with what’s happened since November 8th, with this absolute assault on our sacred vote, I’ve learned that my faith has gotten even stronger and as difficult as the times are right now, and I want to leave your listeners with hope, these are not impossible times.

“I really imagine that with God we’ll overcome all of this evil that is going through us, all of this corruption and we can take again this nation.”

Lake’s claim of electoral malpractice was rejected by Maricopa County Superior Judge Peter Thompson, who ordered Lake to pay Hobbs’ legal fees and said “each single witness” had contradicted her arguments.
