Update (2/8/23): This article has been updated with additional details and an additional appearance from Bobb.
Within a two-week span, Christina Bobb, an attorney for former President Donald Trump, has gone on multiple online shows affiliated with the QAnon conspiracy theory movement to promote her new book about supposed election fraud. During her appearances, Bobb has discussed being part of Trump’s 2024 presidential campaign, pushed false claims of election fraud, and floated new conspiracy theories, while calling herself “a conspiracy theorist.”
Bobb, who joined Trump’s legal team last year, was previously an anchor for the far-right One America News Network. While at OAN, Bobb was a prolific spreader of false claims that the 2020 presidential election was rigged, and she financially supported the sham “audit” of ballots cast in 2020 in Maricopa County, Arizona.
As part of an effort to promote her new book pushing false claims of election fraud, Bobb has gone on at least five shows connected to QAnon within just a couple of weeks. Alongside mentions of supposed election fraud, the interviews have prominently featured mentions of Bobb’s role as a Trump lawyer and campaign adviser.
On January 27, Bobb appeared on a show hosted by QAnon supporter Ann Vandersteel wherein Bobb was introduced as “legal counsel” for Trump, and a chyron during the interview identified Bobb as “Attorney for Pres. Trump.” During their conversation, Vandersteel invoked discredited conspiracy theories about constitutional law adopted from the sovereign citizens movement that have become incorporated within the QAnon community; Bobb did not push back on the claims.
In another interview uploaded the same day, Bobb spoke with Sean Morgan, another QAnon-supporting host, about “working with” Trump. In response to Morgan asking for her to put on her “attorney hat” regarding how to “remedy” the 2020 election, she proclaimed a “Marxist movement” had “undermined the United States government and they’ve actually tried to overtake the United States government and take authority of the United States government away from the American people.” (She also suggested that this secret Marxist movement was partnering with the World Economic Forum as part of a plot to “take over the world and enslave everybody.”)
During the interview with Morgan, Bobb lauded election denial organizations True the Vote and Audit the Vote PA, both of which are tied to the QAnon movement. (True the Vote leader Gregg Phillips told Bobb about the “Anon movement” in a December interview.) Bobb also seemingly pointed to, as a model, another election denial group founded by a QAnon supporter that targeted ballot drop boxes, and Morgan told Bobb that he was a member of Audit the Vote PA.
A few days later, Bobb appeared on X22 Report, a major QAnon-supporting podcast, where she was again identified as Trump’s attorney, and she discussed working on Trump’s 2024 campaign and pushed election fraud claims. The host commented that there was “a red wave in 2020” negated by Democratic cheating “like we’ve never seen before,” and Bobb responded, “I completely agree with you,” while predicting a wave of Trump supporters sweeping the country in 2024.
That same day, an interview appeared online of Bobb on The Mel K Show, which is also associated with the QAnon movement. During that interview, Bobb was again identified as “an attorney for Donald Trump” and as working on Trump’s 2024 campaign.
On February 7, Bobb appeared on the QAnon-supporting MatrixxxGrooove Show (or MG Show), where she introduced herself as “an attorney for the Donald J. Trump for President 2024 campaign” who has been “working hard to try to restore election integrity to our elections so that he can actually have a fair shot and will likely be the next president of the United States.” She also called herself “a conspiracy theorist” and suggested that she watches the show, telling the hosts, “You guys have been so vocal on your show encouraging people to get involved in their local government and get involved in their local community.” During the interview, a link that is connected to the show’s site was featured on screen, sending users to a distributor’s page for Bobb’s book.
During these appearances, Bobb encouraged audiences to get involved regarding supposed election fraud, asking them to work “the polls, work the chain of custody lines, you know, be an observer, stand by the drop boxes”; to be involved in the so-called “precinct strategy” that has become embraced in the QAnon community; to “get involved in a grassroots effort to clean up voter rolls”; and “to be involved” and to “all throw our weight behind this issue in order to correct it.”
Bobb’s QAnon media tour, which followed an interview with Pizzagate conspiracy theorist Stew Peters, comes after another attorney for Trump, Peter Ticktin, went on multiple QAnon-affiliated shows last year, where he pushed claims of election fraud and asked viewers for evidence of “the election fraud.” Trump’s circle has had an increasingly close relationship with the QAnon community, and the former president himself has repeatedly amplified QAnon content on social media.
