An auditor helping lead the 2020 election audit in Maricopa County, Arizona, said Thursday that it is “critically important” auditors gain access to a contested set of data machines that the county is refusing to hand over.
Maricopa County has for months refused to hand over county-owned routers subpoenaed by the Arizona state Senate, despite a judge earlier this year ruling the subpoena valid, effectively ordering the county to comply.
County officials have claimed that the routers, if surrendered, could constitute a security risk if sensitive data within them is leaked.
At the state Senate hearing on Thursday, one of the lead investigators of the Maricopa audit dismissed those claims and stressed what he said was the pressing importance of obtaining the routers.
Obtaining the routers is “critically important,” Ben Cotton, the founder of the cybersecurity group Cyfir, told Arizona state officials.
Cotton said the routers will help clarify the specific vulnerabilities he claimed are present in the county’s digital election systems.
“The last time that the antivirus [software] was updated on these systems,” Cotton claimed during his testimony, was in August 2019.
“There have been no operating system updates or patches since that same date,” he also said.
Hackers, he claimed, would have “no difficulty at all” gaining “system-level access” to registration systems at the “current patch state and antivirus state of these systems.”
Cotton dismissed the security concerns advanced by the county over the last few months, saying a forensic review of the systems would produce no “people-sensitive data” from county files.
The county has claimed that its routers are shared jointly by multiple sensitive departments including law enforcement and local branches of federal agencies, and that surrendering the machines to auditors would constitute an undue risk for that data.
President Trump Releases Statement: New “Damning” Information From Public Records About “Votes in Arizona”
President Trump has announced there is new “damning” information in the Arizona 2020 voter fraud investigation. Public documents are showing issues with write-in votes, as many have already warned. Pelosi’s push for write-in votes during the pandemic allowed Democrats free reign. There are lingering questions in the swing states, including Arizona, about the write-in ballots. The videos below give two examples of problems with the write-in ballots.
“New information found from public records, documents, and votes in Arizona. It is damning and determinative! Will be discussing this today.” – President Donald J. Trump

INFORMATION FROM LIZ HARRINGTON ON PIMA COUNTY MAIL-IN BALLOTS:
The Pima County Fish Tail
President Trump outperformed Republicans 3% on mail-in ballots
Biden underperformed Democrats 3% on mail-in ballots
BUT when mail-in ballots started flooding in at over 92%, 20% HIGHER than average, suddenly Biden starts outperforming Trump

MAIL-IN BALLOT RETURNS:
Pima County, AZ had mail-in ballot return rates of OVER 100%!
40 precincts had mail-in ballot returns OVER 97% — totally impossible
Of course this is where Biden “outperformed.” When the rates are normal, Trump beats GOP rates by 3%, Biden trails Dem rates by 3% pic.twitter.com/fSbhzNwCFB

Arizona audit flags thousands of suspect ballots, kicking issue to state’s attorney general
Long-awaited and engulfed in controversy from start to finish, the Arizona Senate’s election audit gave America a split decision while leaving the question of whether illicit ballots were improperly cast or counted to the state’s attorney general.
The audit released Friday afternoon through painstakingly technical testimony concluded the final count of votes in the state’s largest county of Maricopa showing President Joe Biden won Arizona was accurate, but it also included tens of thousands of ballots that were suspect and require more investigation.
The more than 50,000 ballots flagged by auditors for more investigation involved concerns ranging from people voting from addresses from which they had already moved to residents voting twice. The total in question was nearly five times the 10,400 vote margin that separated the two presidential candidates, giving Donald Trump’s troops fresh reason to call for more scrutiny.
The job of resolving the question now falls to Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich, a Republican who has ambitions of winning a U.S. Senate seat in 2022.
Brnovich immediately seized the opportunity, announcing his office’s election integrity unit would review the questionable ballots to determine if further action was warranted.
“I will take all necessary actions that are supported by the evidence and where I have legal authority,” Brnovich tweeted a short while before the final official audit results were to be released. “Arizonans deserve to have their votes accurately counted and protected.”
Across the country, Republican efforts to audit results in states like Georgia, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania got a glimpse of what may be in store politically as well as a roadmap for what issues to review. Democrats and their media allies declared the election integrity issues to be over, while some prominent Republicans called on Arizona to decertify its results.
“There were significant and widespread irregularities and lawlessness in thousands of ballots, sufficient to overcome the margin of difference between Trump and Biden,” said Jenna Ellis, a key lawyer for Trump and chairwoman of the Election Integrity Alliance, which is aiding states in reviewing election issues.
“The 2020 election was irredeemably compromised, and Arizona’s legislature must do now what they failed to do in November — use their plenary authority under the U.S. Constitution and reclaim their delegates by decertifying the results, acknowledging that the certifications were based on incorrect accounting,” Ellis told Just the News. “We are in a constitutional crisis that demands accountability for the American People and election justice.”
Democrats had their own reasons to cheer: in particular the conclusion of a hand count of 2.1 million ballots.
The audit concluded that “there were no substantial differences between the hand count of the ballots provided and the official canvass results for the County,” meaning the count last November that declared Biden a winner was accurate. In fact, Biden picked up a small number of voters in the audit.
“This is the most important finding in the audit because the paper ballots are the best evidence of voter intent, and there is no reliable evidence that the paper ballots were altered to any material degree,” the report said.
But the auditors cautioned that finding did not allay concerns, citing a total of more than 50,000 ballots that appeared to pose significant questions. It recommended that Brnovich conduct a canvass of the voters in question and other investigative tactics to make “any conclusive determination.”
Nearly half of the votes flagged as suspicious — 23,344 — fell into a category called “ballots cast from individuals who had moved prior to the election.” They included 15,035 who moved within the county before the registration deadline, 6,591 who moved to another state before the registration deadline and 1,718 who moved to a different county before the registration deadline.
“Mail in ballots were cast under voter registration IDs for people that may not have received their ballots by mail because they had moved, and no one with the same last name remained at the address,” the report said.
The report noted the impacted ballots may have benefited Biden: 39.5% were from registered Democrats, 33% were Republicans, 26.5% were independents, and 1% came from Libertarians.
The review also flagged a large number of voters who potentially voted in Maricopa and at least one other county in the state. It said 5,295 voters cast ballots in Maricopa and at least one other county using “the same first, middle, last name and birth year.”
The final review also flagged a large anomaly in which there were 9,041 more ballots shown as returned in the official early voting file from individuals than were shown in the records of ballots that were mailed out. “In most of these instances an individual was sent one ballot but had two ballots received on different dates,” the auditors noted, saying possible explanations ranged from data entry errors to fraud.
During testimony, the CyberNinja consultants who conducted the audit also raised serious questions about the possible deletion of data from Maricopa County’s election computers.
Cybersecurity professional Ben Cotton said an anonymous user accessed the internet on one of the county’s computers that holds election data. Around the exact same time, files were purged from the system without any notice from the county.
“Obviously this requires an explanation,” Cotton said during his testimony. He went on to outline how this lack of data impacted the audit, as well as the county’s refusal to assist the investigators.
“This may be a part of a normal process with how they handle votes, but the timing of this is suspect,” he continued.
When explaining what happened to the election data, he said, “We simply don’t know.”
The Cyber Ninja report did not specifically point to any evidence of widespread voter fraud. Still, it did make a list of recommendations including legislation that does not allow an election to be certified until the official canvas and final vote is fully reconciled.
Karen Fann, the Arizona Senate president who led the audit, said she believes it has turned up evidence of state laws being broken, an issue now left for Brnovich to resolve.
Even in the hours before the results were released, reactions to the leaked findings were aligned with political agendas. Democrats insisted the audit should put an end to claims of a stolen election and even made plans to summon the auditors before Congress.
Trump and his supporters cried foul, accusing the news media of ignoring legitimate questions about the ballots flagged as suspect.
“The Fake News is lying about the Arizona audit report!” the former president said. “The leaked report conclusively shows there were enough fraudulent votes, mystery votes, and fake votes to change the outcome of the election 4 or 5 times over.”
Ariz. audit nearing completion despite setbacks
The Arizona audit is starting to come to a close, even after many of the auditors caught cases of COVID. One America’s Christina Bobb has more.
While we appreciate the scope and complexity of the effort, we can’t wait much longer. The fake administration will leave the country in tatters by Christmas and this massive fraud needs to be exposed yesterday;
This is good, but the Biden Administration has already committed treason and Fauci has already lied to Congress….yet nothing is being done. We demand action!: Followers’ Comment.
