On the morning of July 16, the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) and Council for National Policy’s (CNP) secretive election group meets with lawmakers and election experts from at least 20 states.
The “Political Process Working Group” was established in August 2019 to strategize on how to influence the outcome of the 2020 election in Donald Trump’s favor.
Not much is known about the meeting at the time of this writing.
In December, the group met to discuss ways to challenge the election results and to interfere with state policies that make it easier to vote.
The group met again in February at a CNP conference where ALEC CEO Lisa Nelson told attendees that she’s working with attorneys to prepare to question the validity of election results.
It’s unclear how many times the Political Process Working Group met besides these three occasions.
Council for National Policy
The Council for National Policy is a highly secretive right-wing extremist group that works in tandem with public figures and less secretive organizations to donate to and draft policies for Republican politicians. For example, if a Republican candidate does not have a problem with same-sex marriage, the CNP might make sure they change that position.
Trump File first mentioned the CNP when detailing the group’s involvement in anti-lockdown protests and influence on the Trump administration’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Months later, CNP members orchestrated “Stop The Steal” and “March for Trump” events that became a battle cry for far-right fascist groups like the Proud Boys to take to the streets of Washington, DC.
