Breaking news is coming out of Arizona as the audit is winding down. Audit spokesman Randy Pullen has announced that the state Senate will subpoena the routers and passwords that election officials are still withholding.
On June 30, Pullen announced the state’s intention to issue the subpoena, asserting that it was been difficult to complete the audit without the information on the routers and passwords.
“We have none of that information has been provided to us, and it’s something that the Senate will have to go back to the county and request those items,” Pullen explained. “So again, it’s very difficult to complete the audit without getting that information.”
The audit spokesman noted that state senators will be responsible for determining the timeline for the examination of all electronic equipment used in Arizona’s 2020 election. Pullen also announced that the ballot count is now complete, but some questions have been raised about the electronic data.
“A few minor things still need to be done with respect to some software additions they made,” he said. “We got some additional information for the county. Apparently there was a difference on how many duplicate ballots there were per batch, so they gave us a new list and so we had to create software that took that data and compared it to our data to deal with the duplicate ballots.”
The subpoenas are expected to be issued in the coming days.
Maricopa County has announced that they will be scrapping all of the subpoenaed election equipment and buying new equipment because the county will “never use compromised equipment that could pose a risk to free and fair elections.”
Of course, that statement completely contradicts previous statements by Democrats, who have claimed that it is impossible to hack these voting machines. If it were true that the equipment cannot be hacked or corrupted in any way, why would they need to throw it out and buy new equipment?
According to reporting by One America News, “While Arizona Republicans believe it is a step in the right direction, the replacement of equipment is not going to undo the mistakes already made. They argue if the machines are not able to undergo a forensic audit to verify the presidential election results then they never should have been approved to be used in an election in the first place.”
